Took a bit of time, but I’m finally finished with my “Decades Project”. It was fun, but I’m not happy with a few of these (Bob Dylan, I’m looking at you). It’s hard for me to go back when I finish a piece, so this might be the final product.
Just in time for the holidays, I was inspired to do a Lovecraftian Mike Mignola inspired joint. Here’s the result. Might do more like this. I enjoyed the process immensely.
Starting a new “series” today. Punk Icons. These are going to be portraits of punk rock musicians that are personally iconic to me for a variety of reasons. To kick it off, here is the first one: Milo Aukerman from the Descendents.
One of the greats.
RIP Mario Cuomo
RIP: Stuart Scott
Starting a new category where I’ll be drawing public figures that have recently passed away as of Jan 1 2015. Sadly I’m already behind and it’s only the 11th. Mario Cuomo, Stuart Scott and Donna Douglas are on the dockett.
Dwight D. Eisenhower.
I think Martin Van Buren is my favorite president to draw because he looks like Wolverine’s creepy uncle.
I’m catching up on American Horror Story, and was struck by Angela Bassett’s beauty while portraying Marie Laveau. Had to draw her.
Richard Harrow- my favorite character from Boardwalk Empire. Pen and ink, toned with Copic markers, colored in Photoshop.
Lucky Luciano. Pen and ink, toned with Copic markers and finished in Photoshop.
20’s/30’s gangster Al Anastasia, that is. Pen and ink, toned in Copic markers and finished in Photoshop.
Oh, indeed. This one is for sale in the Store if you are interested!
Mr Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock! This is pen and ink on bristol, available in the store!
A musician I’ve liked for quite some time- the lovely Laura Veirs.
Sam Beam, AKA Iron and Wine. Done in Photoshop.
The inimitable Elvis Costello, drawn digitally in Photoshop using a Wacom Intuous 5.
Aka Charles Thompson, aka Black Francis, aka the awesome frontman for Pixies and The Catholics.
This was a commission to “zombify” Simon here. If you’re interested in being “zombified”, just let me know!
Lead singer of Clem Snide and terrific solo artist, Eef Barzelay.
