I can finally post this painting now that I have given it to my friend George at Hypno Comics as a thank-you for his generosity and all around coolitude.
I put more hours in this thing than I care to admit but it feels great to be moving paint around again. Right moving on now.
4 x 4 inches, acrylic on wood panel.
So far I’ve only be able to create an ink drawing every other day so I think I will stick to that rhytym rather than play catch-up. So here are my first 3. I hope to do lots of experimenting to find what suits me best as I don’t really ink stuff that often.
Neo from the Matrix as a cartoon character. Ink w/brush. #inktober
Skull, Ballpiont pen #inktober
Birdman, ink experiment with different inks and tools. #inktober
I’m working up an idea for a DareDevil portrait for my friend George as a thank you for his generosity. I haven’t decided if this will be finished in acrylics or oils yet.
DD preliminary drawing
Added the background graphic. I need to fix the horns when I transfer the sketch:
almost ready to paint
I got some good feedback so I tried one more sketch to fix some rough spots such as the slightly elongated head.
Okay one more, now I think I’m ready to paint. Funny how the simplest drawings give you the most trouble.
ready to get paintin’
The transfer drawing for a painting I am working on for an upcoming comic convention.
UPDATE: I’ve been having trouble finding the time to get back to this so I thought I’d show a little preview:
the process so far
Well apologies first, I had a very bad cold and cough the last 4 weeks really slowing me down so I kinda rushed this one to make it into a group show based on the four basic elements. This is not my best work but not my worst either, The Koko the clown character has always been a favorite of mine and I thought if I ever painted him it would have to be at least as weird as the old cartoons, so there ya go. I hope I can revisit this later and paint it up right.
Here is the initial sketch:
Time for another Doodle Dump

Oh, excuse me
I assure you I haven’t smashed anything
He’s all geared up
No its not the name of Aunt May’s great grand-daughter, its Star Wars day (que the John Williams fanfare). I have been neglecting my humble sketchblog lately due to a lot of much needed freelance work but I wanted to do some kinda Star Wars doodle for today so here you have it. Its our favorite Who shot first gag, Greedo from the original Star Wars.
Next time more shootin’ and less talkin’
2013 is on its last few hours so it seems like a good time to give these lost scribbles a more permanent home.
This year has been a roller coaster for me so I have high hopes for the next 365 days to come. Thank you for taking a look at my art and I hope you and your families all have a great 2014.

Here are the last few faces I sketched up in 2013. I had a lot of fun drawing my friends and family the last few months but I think its time to take a break for a spell.
