inktober

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.

Koko el Mental

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.

Orphaned Sketches & Lost Doodles

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.

Mini Epiphany and Sketch Dump

Last night I sat down to create a drawing for the upcoming art show at the Stoneworks gallery in Ventura for the First Friday event. The theme this time is “Beard and Mustache”. I don’t know why but as much as I wanted to do a really special piece I just didn’t have it in me. I have been very blue and scattered these past months especially since my move but I did manage to scratch this out of my pencil:

col-erase pencil, sketch, god, man

God + man

 

I didn’t know what to think of this doodle but I felt it wasn’t working so I “dropped the needle” on my web browser bookmarks for inspiration and opened up this page: http://grillomation.blogspot.com/
Paydirt! what cool and amazing drawings by Oscar Grillo -so I grabbed my fountain pens and  just started drawing for the joy of it and let my mind wander. Here is what poured out of my pen. I hope this is the beginning of my getting back into my own skin again. I hope you like ’em as much as I did doodlin’ ’em.
