baby steps into water color

the subtleties of water color brush evade me, but water color pencil gets similar effect without the mess. Combined with black ink, the effect is pretty nice.

Here's some early experiments.

markers and pencil

went through a bit of a phase of flow of consciousness cartoons, just making lines to the music until stuff forms. Strange results from brush-tip marker and colored pencil. Lots of drawing over old pencil sketches.

enjoyable explorations of a strange subconscious

Saturday, February 26, 2011


finally got my ass back to lifedrawing for a sunday gesture session, and lucky me one of my favorite models was posing!


Based on some sketches from zeds dead, this is the first in what will be a series of increasingly disturbing psychedelic paintings as I focus on projecting the bizarre contents of my subconscious

Zeds Dead at Fortune sound lounge

This was a whole other level of concert. I've been to some sweet shows, but I was overwhelmed by Zeds Dead. Fucking inspiring.

new years eve sketches

I've never liked new years eve parties. The end of a year makes me reflective and introspective, not particularly charged to party. Despite my angsty musings over .... nothing ... Jenn hosted an awesome party. My sketchbook was calling to me, so I grabbed a fat marker with a broad felt tip and got to doodling.

kid koala at biltmore

I'd seen Kid Koala nearly a year prior to this show, his style has made some really cool progress since then. He seems to be drawing more influence from the bassy warble of dubstep, and works it into his style nicely, keeping that jazzy feel with lots of obscure spoken audio from forgotten albums.

Unfortunately it was so packed I didn't have room to stand to get many sketches
