This Is What Democracy Looks Like?

For the 2022 midterm elections I spontaneously offered friends on social media to draw the animal of their choice if they voted. It started as a way to keep me from doom scrolling the fate of our democracy but ended up being pretty fun. These are the drawings redone digitally.

The Dancing Prisoner

Here’s some artwork for a story that I’ve put on the back-burner.  The comic would be based around a mysterious old prisoner that spends 23 hours a day in solitary confinement for an unknown crime and then for his one hour of exercise a day, he dances nonstop.  All the drawings were done in pencil […]

Still Life on Fidelity

Ink Drawing on Vellum, 12″x9″ I did this ink drawing a couple of years back to work on my hatching.  I wasn’t very consistent, but the sloppiness adds some character to the overall feel of the piece.  I recently tried re-drawing it with a more uniform hatching look which turned out looking cleaner but a […]

Travel Sketches: St. Petersburg

Posted on Oct 26, 2009 in Art, Sketch

Charcoal on Paper, 8″x10″ I went to St. Petersburg, Russia a couple of years ago on my honeymoon.  We did a lot of tourist stuff (including a marathon tour of the Hermitage) but also had a couple of days to relax and lounge about in our favorite places.   This sketch is of one of the […]

Figure Drawings 7

Posted on Oct 19, 2009 in Art

Pastel on Paper, 18″x 24″ Since so much of cartooning is straight line drawing, I was trying to break my habit of doing mostly line drawings of live figure models.  This style, which I made by smearing my finger with pastel and then smudging the paper accordingly, is sort of the antithesis of line art.  […]

Five Minute Figure Sketches

Posted on Oct 8, 2009 in Art

Pastel on Paper, 18″x24″ Five minute sketches can be a good way of filling the paper without getting too precious.  I have a tendency to dwell on my mistakes which is most often counter-productive.  A short time limit forces me to embrace my errors, and in the immortal words of Tim Gunn, “Make it work!”

Charcoal on Paper, 9″x12″ I recently got back from a fantastic vacation to New Zealand.  While looking through our photos, I was reminded of some of the sketches I did on past vacations.  Last year, I was lucky enough to have a spare hour during a nice Fall day to sit down and sketch a […]
