Lefty challenge

Here's an all-left-handed drawing - concept, drawing, coloring.  I'm a righty by nature, so this was definitely on of the more interesting challenges.  This is Rigo; he has a big nose.

Holiday zombie

Zombies aren't usually my thing; or Christmas, yet they make a pretty interesting combination.  Might have to try out some other combos.

Will n Kate

The Royal couple for Caricaturama/ fun.  I couldn't care much less about the wedding and all the hype surrounding it, but sometimes you gotta give in I guess.  Hurrah!

New Commish!

So, here it is... my latest and greatest commission!  A big thanks to Felipe for ordering this from me!  It was tons of fun putting this piece together.  It's all acrylic, and pretty big, as you can tell with my cheesy mug behind it.  Inspired by the White Goodman vs. the Bull painting from Dodgeball, as well as the amazing Frank Frazetta.  I've got some process pics, they may go up soon too.  Anyone else want one? :)

Drawing at the bar...

Here's some quick live drawings from tonight.  I went on St. Patty's night too (crazy) but didn't have a camera with me at the time.  It was awesome, Timmy O'Toole's is great!  Tips were good, employees were cool, overall a blast!
I recently made myself a little "Free Caricatures" sign to put up when I go out to do this type of thing, and it really helps break the ice!  I always feel more comfortable when I have a more clearly defined "purpose," such as "artist" or "nobody," so long as it's defined.  I'll try and get out to do this sorta thing more often.  It's just a cool experience, and people's nights turn out to be more interesting than they anticipated :)

Two and a Half Men

There was a challenge to draw Charlie Sheen with his antics, and this is what I came up with.  All hand-drawn and colored, with the background and shadows, highlights p-shopped.  Turned out pretty cool, I think.  A little photo-sing goes a long way.

pulp fiction

Here's a piece I've had in mind to do for a while now... and finally put it down on paper!  I could never decide what direction to take it - paint, charcoal, marker - and so I went with the basic, for starters.  This probably won't be the last, these guys just have awesome faces, and such an iconic movie.  Well, onto the next!

I was given a Munny to do with what I wanted, and so here's a Steve Zissou, for the Caricaturama Showdown 3000 challenge!  It's acrylic paint, with a little shirt sleeve-hat.  These effin dolls are cute, what can I say...

vampire lady

Here's a vampire girl, in charcoal and watercolor pen.  There was a figure drawing session called "Monster Draw" where the figures in this case were this girl, a vampire huntress, and a lady pregnant with a demon bursting out of her stomach.  Even so, this ended up being the most interesting pose in the end (and one I actually got a picture of).  Below is a WIP series.

Nick Cave

For Caricaturama Showdown 3000, marker + conte.  I wanted a sketchier look for this one, not quite sure if I achieved it.  A good exercise though.

Another one of the King, back to the 'ol color stix n markette.  The hardest part was not getting up to dance while drawing with his music in the background!

smooth criminal

A fun marker sketch of the King of Pop.  Haven't done a pure marker drawing until this one, comes with its own challenges.  Another one of him may be coming.

Here's a self-drawing, to be used on a business card... finally! Definitely wanted to show something fun on it, and I apparently love birds, so here we are!

Slim Shaded

Colored it! Airbrush, markers, colored pencil. Geez, this was fun to do. I may have to try some lettering again, but first, a big painting is coming up!

Slim Shady

"So come and kill my while my name's hot; and shoot me 25 times in the same spot..."
A fun exercise, trying to incorporate some wild lettering into an illustration. I'm not sure how this came about, but I'm pretty pleased. I'm a big fan of this guy. Coloring... may be coming :)

James Cromwell

Another one for Caricaturama 3000. Drawn with a brush pen, colored pencil did the rest, except for the background stripe. I don't know why I love the horizontal background stripe so much... it just always feels right :)

Steve Carell

For Caricaturama 3000, in ballpoint pen + Le Pen. I still don't know why the 3000 is there...

Cripplecon 4 Life

These are my pieces from Cripplecon 4 Life. Tried some acrylic, as I have a very large painting to do coming up. An amazing convention, definitely the most fun I've been to.
