A lil' late, but better than a missed period?

So yea, those of you who follow me on facebook have seen that I've been trying to update that frequently, and those of you who only follow me there won't read this. DAMN YOU! Anyways, I was going to start a new painting that involves a saber tooth tiger skull and autumn leaves but my girlfriend said "If you don't keep painting animals practicing religion you'll never see my boobs again."

Ok she didn't say that but she did say I should keep painting 'em so spontaneously I figured out what I wanted to do. Needless to say I sketched it out today and I worked out the details in pen and just started writing random words. Free association is how I title most of my pieces. Enjoy!

A Process...

Ok, so today I'll be drawing later, but since I didn't have to work I'm going to be updating now and blahblahblah you don't care. Anywho, this update is going to show how I work from start to finish. I'm only going to post the process of 1 painting up here and on my facebook "fan" page I'll be posting this update AND another painting from beginning to end. If you wanna see it click on the little facebook icon thing on the right. Anyways without further adieu, here goes nothin'!

I usually draw everything on paper first, with color ideas and title ideas:

Then I draw it out onto canvas using a regular pencil:


Then after a few little details and minor little alterations that no one will notice except me..the finished product!

Title: "It Ain't Shinola"
Size: 24"x24"
Medium: Water Based Oil Paint, Acrylic, Marker

And another one...

I feel like Puff Daddy with these updates, not only are they not all that good, they're also CONSTANTLY being thrown in your face. So sit down, shut up, and enjoy.

The first drawing is a tattoo idea for a friend of mine, based off a tattoo design I did for another friend who plays in the band The Smashup. The second, retarded, step child, drawing is a quick drawing of one of my favorite comic characters, Tank Girl. Phillip Bond drew her and I still try to steal from him. This isn't even remotely close to being like Phillip Bond.

I thought I told you that we don't stop, I thought I told you that we don't stop.

So I've been gone a few days but I've been doodling while away. Also since one of my co-workers said my blog was proof that I was a hack, you'll notice a difference in the material posted from here on out.

I have 3 pages of doodles and 1 sketch. Enjoy, and comment please.

And here...we...go!

So yea I didn't update yesterday, 'cuz an old friend was trying to help me figure out the business side of the art world. Unfortunately I'm a retard and was barely able to process what she said. Also I'm going away this weekend, I'm gonna try to get it set up so it'll update automatically for me but I'm not sure I can. Anyways, once again I'm struggling with ideas but here are 2 pages of doodles.

Fucking Five

Another day where I drew and had NOTHING in my brain, and was working at the comic shop so I drew more heroes. Unfortunately I still don't have the talent to actually draw heroes, but regardless I plodded along and yelled at both the paper and pencil because it wasn't working right. I can draw, the pen and paper where broken! Yea!

Man I suck.

Anyways, here goes my latest attempt to revive my talent.

Pitiful Page Phore

I apologize for the alliteration in the title of this update. However, as you can see..these drawings are pitiful. But this is what happens when you don't draw superheroes for a long time and then try to draw them in pen. Just be glad I erased the leaping tiger I tried to draw. Goddamn that was bad. Anyways here we go.

An easier Day 3

So this time atleast I had some ideas, though I didn't have the patience to finish one, and the other didn't come out so good. I wanted to make a pathetic looking zombie and a steam punk-esque battle droid because I'm a nerd. I usually hate my filigree but this time I liked it and hated my tech bits. Anyways, here's another 2 pages of me doodling.

Day One

So here I am, adding yet another blog into the internets that is already filthy with them. I won't be writing (much) in here this will be for my daily or almost daily (3 times a week minimum) blog. Without further adieu...
