New Stuff…

By in cats, men, sketches, watercolour, women

.. but somehow the same. Sigh. If anyone cares, that strange object in the upper right-hand corner is a doodle of an Italian drinking fountain I made to illustrate an anecdote to someone. Coloured it in.

A whole bunch of drawings

By in cats, men, sketches, watercolour, women

Just putting up a lot of things. I’ve been drawing them the past week, scanning. Now they’re backed up a little. So here they are, all at once.

Slightly Random

By in men, sketches, watercolour, women

Busy as of late. I’ve been drawing things in the between times, but not really putting them up. Maybe it will even out, but I wonder. Anyhow, here are some more drawings and paintings. Some are sort of from life, some not. I’ll let you guess. The guy below, in pencil, is roughly inspired by […]

Sketchbook Fun

By in sketches, watercolour, women

More people from my head, and on the street. Along with buying a lot of new sketchbooks at “Back to School” sales at various art stores, I’ve been wrapping up some ones that have been filled up. The problem for me comes when I have to find space to store them in my little apartment. […]

Portrait

By in sketches, watercolour, women

I painted this in about 4 minutes from a photo. Wish all my painting was this easy, but if I just did this all the time, I’d get bored. That’s why I tackle the complex things which are just out of my reach. Later I’ll probably find something wrong with this one, too.

Back to School

By in men, sketches, watercolour, women

One advantage of this time of year for cheap writer/artists is that there are plenty of “back to school” sales on stationery and art supplies. So, I’ve stocked up on cool sketchbooks. The above creeps are from a new hardcover one, which has paper that’s nice for watercolour. But it’s hard to scan, with that […]

Canson “Mix Media” (sic) Sketchbook

By in cats, watercolour, women

This kitty was painted in my book, the make of which is in the title, and about which I was complaining to another artist about because it likes to absorb and lighten dark watercolour paint. I’m too cheap to buy a better book, and frankly, haven’t found one at a reasonable price. It’s not so […]

Page O’ Things

By in sketches, watercolour, women

This isn’t the most recent thing I’ve been working on, but it’s more of that yellow underpainting (or “glazing”) as it’s called. Have a lot of ideas for comic strips, which take a while to do. I hope you’ll see them soon! Working on drawing famous people also, or at least portraits that look like […]

Neighbourhood Lady and Unicorn

By in horses, men, sketches, watercolour, women

I can’t actually claim to have seen this in the parade of people walking by my 2nd-floor balcony, but she was a striking woman, and the dress I gave her inspired me to give her a mythological pal. Too bad about the pumps, which aren’t exactly something Burne-Jones would have added. Below, a more typical […]

More faces and sketchook pages

By in men, sketches, watercolour, women

Been painting a lot of stuff, but want to focus on the comics. That doesn’t mean these will stop, anytime soon. I’m just putting it up!

Cheerful Misanthropy Comic

By in paintings, watercolour

I like children, but have seen a lot of complainers, and put-upon moms. This one wasn’t written as much as it sort of fell out of my subconscious. I’m uncomfortable about it (hence the title), but it’s just paint and paper. Painting comics like this seems to take about as long as drawing them in […]
