Drink N Draw at Changing Hands bookstore.  1.5hrs of blissful buzz and doodlin

 

1st page illustration for a comic I’ve been working on.  Wizard Tower.  Waddya think?  Does it set the mood & draw you in?  He doesn’t like visitors much…

A Christmas drawing I did for my Dad & Mom!  Merry Christmas!

Twas the day after Christmas, and from coast to coast, many creatures were stirring, but most won’t see this post 😛

Every year I make a present of Hippo Potter for my wife, she is after all my love and my life (I don’t mean to boast!)

A new Hippo from Potter,  Dumbledore adds to his pensieve, while Fawkes the Phoenix rests on his sleeve.

Merry Christmas to all, and a happy new year!  It was rough, but don’t fear, fill your heart with cheer…

& political reprieve!

1st December Life Drawing sesh @ Hipbone studio in Portland…God I love that Palamino Black Wing pencil, sooo smooth…she will be missed, sadly she passed away during this drawing:

I’ve been playing around with some story ideas and character concpets, and I especially like this one.  I’m not sold on the style yet, sometimes you have to complete something to realize it’s not what you want…the good news is the new sketches I’ve been coming up with are better!  More dynamic…  Gotta keep pushin it!  Stay tuned and I’ll show more versions as I brainstorm.

“Maybe She’s Born With it, Maybe it’s MUTATIONS!”

Playing around with some new pens & markers, this was with a Faber Castelle PITT artist pen.  It’s almost the same as japanese art pens, but this one doesn’t smear 🙂

Fighters will crawl through the fiery pits of the underworld to beat their opponent. Extreme pain is nothing but a tickle, and they love to use anything in their arsenal of tricks to take a son’bitch out. Maybe you love to drink, f#@$, and kick ass… or perhaps you are one who carefully disciplines the mind and body into a focused art form of beauty and destruction…either way, someone’s gonna bleed.

Kundalini awareness is a hard thing to describe, but a picture can describe quite a lot.
