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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
