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 […]

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!

“Girls” and Crumb

Using different watercolour paper here, and a wet technique. R. Crumb and Sheena, Queen of the Jungle. Watching the DVD of the documentary movie again.

Extreme Norosity, and other things.

By in cats, men, sketches, watercolour, women

Nora was looking cute the other night. So I painted her. Was she THIS cute? Still, pretty darn cute. More of the usual thing. A pilot woman, in front of a Battle-Star Galactica kind of thing. One of my usual sketchbook pages. Including Garlic Heads.

Painting Away the Blues

By in cats, men, paintings, ruttan's place, sketches, women

Painting and drawing stuff makes me feel better. here’s are some things from yesterday and this morning! Above is Bamako the Black Cat, whom I’m taking care of for the moment, and an Evil Skwirl. Below, some sketches from my balcony I drew with a ballpoint pen I just bought. Can’t resist trying out a […]

People Sitting

By in men, sketches, watercolour, women

Still doing pinup girls, though this one is kind of rubbery. Bear with me, please! Also, a sitting guy.

Pleistocene Panic

By in Uncategorized

I was freaking out over current events, and looking at a candle flame in my Swedish Lantern. Thought of this story, and drew it all in one night. I wonder if this argument actually took place long ago? Here’s a bonus Rachel Maddow:

More Ballpoint Rambling

By in horses, men, sketches

Ballpoint pens are fun, and you can kind of get some nice tones happening. Not very archival, I imagine.

Fillin’ in pages

By in men, sketches, women

This is my black and white book, which doesn’t take colour all that well (except when it’s all I’ve got!). Still, it’s fun to draw in black and white with the brush pen, and various roller pens. Not as elite as the dip pen, however. But still pleasant to scratch back and forth, making those […]

The Apparition of These Faces in the Crowd…

By in men, sketches, women

…Petals on a wet, black bough. Face sketches I’ve been doing, on the Metro, and at parties. Sometimes from TV!

Teen Car

By in ruttan's place, sketches

Watching Gran Torino with an old Clint Eastwood put me in mind of my teen car. Much less impressive. Built a scale model of it, which I’ve kept on a shelf, and you can see on my tumblr space here. It was a 1974 Mercury Bobcat, not a Pinto. That’s about all I want to […]
