Like Rip van Winkle

Too much has been going on for me to keep up with the posting. I've got plenty of new sketches to put up as well as other goodies so expect them soon. I apologize for the abrupt disappearance but day job + personal work = broke ass Eugene!

On another note: I am available for commissions such as this Old School Iron Man I did about a month ago;

BANG!

This is what i've currently been working on aside from Monstercake.
It's for an upcoming show at the Judy Saslow Gallery in Chicago. I believe its 50 artists each painting a primed skull. There's no deep meaning in this here piece, just me having fun painting on something three dimensional. True, its political, but to all you Republicans I've got one thing to say; you hate me because I am free.

HA!

BANG!

BANG!

The Bush Bang!

The Bush Bang

I've been a little neglectful of everydaysketch lately, what with Monstercake, as well as the obligatory job, and the encroaching deadline for a three dimensional piece for an upcoming show I am participating in.

I'll get my poo together....someday

having fun with the ol' ink pens

Tonight I went crazy with some new ink pens - for whatever reason I like to draw ghouls and goblins and all the typical monsters we all know and love. I started to have this idea in my head for a soap opera with vampires, anyways I had fun with it. Why the fuck i'm up at 3 in the am creating characters for a vampire soap opera is anybody's guess.

Process - vampire

It's been too long since I posted last but I am happy to say I have new things to show. I wanted to show the process into making a tiny illustration. The original size of the work is about 3 by 4 inches.

Here's the initial pencil sketch of the piece.

Phase 2 is a simple flat acrylic wash with watercolour applied to the face and suit.

The final phase is done by applying a thin warm turp wash over the piece and adding some color pencil details to various areas. I also fine tuned the blood with more watercolour washes and added a heavy-body coat of white acrylic to the suit to give it some texture.

Who knows what I was thinking here... I wanted to create a cool tshirt design but something doesn't work right with this one. Maybe it's my lack of experience with ink nibs. I just couldn't get a nice flow with the strokes. Anyone got any pointers?
