Yay! It’s one of my favorite times of the year, Inktober. A fun little month long thing where people post and share ink drawings they’ve done each day. I’m not gonna get into any of the rants I’ve seen from some artists about how it’s just for ego-gratifying or what have you. I think it’s fun, and provides a good bit of motivation to get something done every day, even if you’re busy already.

So without further ado…this was yesterday’s piece. I’ll be posting today’s later. 14568151_1275311215834642_6240491106710837540_n.jpg

I promise I’m not dead.

 

Really.

 

 

So yeah, I got featured on the front page of the Horror Sleaze Trash! website! They included several of my paintings, and some of my comic strip work. Go check it out!

Many thanks to founder/editor/poet Ben John Smith for the shoutout. You can find his poetry, photography, and even some drawings on the site. While you’re there, make sure to grab a copy of each of his books, they’re fantastic.

His newest book, White White White, can be purchased here as well. Show some support!

Anywho, that’s about it. Just working on some paintings and mainlining coffee.

Til next time kids!

A new day

So, I spent most of yesterday getting this blog all updated and cleaned up, and writing an artist bio for a website that I’m going to be featured in. Then, I watched Straight Outta Compton and did a wicked pen and ink drawing of Ice Cube.

Today, I think I need to knock out some more paintings for the Square. I have a few more Lips paintings in the works, along with a few more nudes. So it’s time to crank up some moody new wave/90s goth/punk/whatever and rock out.

…at blogging, at least.

Yikes, sorry about the long gap of no posts. Once I got back on the Square, I started selling pretty well, and most of my time went into making more paintings. And fucking around on the interwebs when I wasn’t doing that. So I apologize.

Quick recap.

Got back out on Jackson Square.

Painted what the hell I liked.

Sold them.

Got super lazy as far as taking care of my health and exercise.

Made enough to pretty much skirt through the summer, and stay at home in the A/C.

Realized that I’ve gotten fat and soft.

Lately, I’ve switched to a vegetarian lifestyle, and started biking 5-10 miles a day to start getting back in shape.

I also have started taking courses in comic-making from this awesome book, Drawing Words & Writing Pictures, by Jessica Abel and Matt Madden. They give lots of exercises and tips that I’ve never seen anywhere else, and it’s been helping me get off my ass and get to work.

So yeah. That’s the Cliff’s Notes version. Let’s see if I can start keeping this baby a little more recent.

Oh, and here’s some of the most recent paintings I’ve made. Ooh pictures…Unwind Swank I Want To (break free) Purple Dreams

Back on the Square

Today marks the first time out on Jackson Square since we’ve been back. I’d write more but I don’t want to kill my phone battery. So instead, here’s some pictures.
