Lil sketch

Post Post

This man was a kindly old Hare Krishna
Not sure they liked this too much
They loved it and I had a crowd behind me really into it.

The bold thing about this drawing is the line I used for the bill of the hat is completely dry. I used a prismacolor marker for it.

Me Again and a Shark

Please don't look at this kid's face. I gave him way too much hair and made countless other mistakes, but that's a funny body, no question.

Political Figures

I'm tryin to get in the swing of drawing celebrities. It's a very different game, drawing from photos and video, but I think we park caricaturists have some fresh ideas to offer the world of editorial illustration. These drawings don't necessarily portray that in full, but there are hints of it. Retail caricature can potentially be a breeding ground for new approaches and ideas for cartooning, as long as artists feel they don't have to be afraid of the customer.

Soul Rebels

These were some of the coolest customers I've ever had. When I show up to work I wait around for a couple hours with no business at all. All the while, fuming inside because I want to draw and nobody wants to sit down, and some people say, "we'll come back" later, and none of those people did. If you're a park caricature artist, you know what I'm talking about. Then these people come up. I can tell they're respectful of art. Look at them. She's got dreads and big earholes. He's got on a soul rebel shirt. And they don't say any of the nonsense about don't draw this or that. A short ways into the picture, the girl was like, "Are you into graffiti or anything." Whataya know, I just started messing with it about a week ago -- putting letters together and such. They were cool, cuz they said the right things. They shut up most the time and didn't appear uncomfortable. They loved the drawing. My firend, Matt McBrien checks out my blog from time to time and told me that I should write more. Well... I just did.

This is my boss and my friend, Manny.

Pencil Sketch

This is my good buddy Manny.

Aaron Phiby Comes Correct For the Most Part

I like this one quite a bit but the eyebrows are to thick and empahsized and angry. Other than that, I really like it.
For these sketches, instead of using a Dixon Markette I used a Prismacolor Marker. The top and bottom sketch were done with a brown marker.

Two Rejects

Yes. The word bubble came after. This lovable punk likes drumming and manatees. I like drawing circular eyes and peanut heads.

I found this reject so fetching I decided to hang it up at the stand in place of the drawing the misguided woman wanted me to precisely replicate. I hope she finds my website and chokes on her crumpetts.

Drawings With Time Restriction

This was done in a coffee shop gig in Findlay OH. The place is called Coffee Amici. They have a website and forum. In the photos section there're some other drawings I've done. Unfortunately, It's just the drawing without a photo of the subject.
I don't think she liked her drawing so much, but I did and she was very cordial.
I had to put two crappy photos together for this one to give you an idea of what they looked like.

Drawings for Friends and Pretty Girls

This is a classy dame by the name of Jordan. She's into cognitive science. If you can't see the likeness, don't fret, I'll draw her agane.

This guy's cool. He's all about video games and stuff.

Convention Caricatures

This is the drawing I was most satisfied with from the Ohio Minicorn.
I kinda liked this one too. I just wish his chin looked more like a chin.
