Random visual goodness
I thought I’d put together another post of random artwork from here and there. It’s the kind of artwork that doesn’t really belong anywhere except with a bunch of other random drawings. So here we have some recent works that were done in my sketchbook, as commissions, portraits, an album cover and so on.
We will begin with some sketchbook pages. A lot of times at night I’ll sit on the couch and doodle while watching TV and these are some of those end results.
Here we have a piece that I started drawing while having diner at an Indian restaurant. The tables are covered with large sheets of paper and as is often the case I end up doodling on it. The food showed up long before I could finish the drawing so I decided to cut it out and take it home to polish off. The paper was terrible quality and the pen I was using was absolute junk but I muscled it all into something fun in the end.
Next we have a couple of portraits. Beethoven followed by Thoreau.
These next two are pretty random. Maybe the most random stuff I’ve posted in a while. I have a habit of seeing things everywhere I look. My overly active imagination can instantly push an image into just about everything I see… even if it’s just a stain on the street.
This is a commission I did recently for a fellow polar bear lover. This image is based off of an old photo I have that I’ve always wanted to draw and I figured that this was the perfect opportunity to do so.
This is an album cover for OtotoxiK which I don’t believe has come out yet. The only art direction he gave me was that he liked some of my ornate skull work so I ran with it and this is where it wound up.
Here are a couple examples of pieces I’ve done at the live drawing events here in SF called Sketch Tuesdays which are held once a month at 111 Minna.
I’ll round it off with some color pieces. As much as I like ink as an end result there is a part of me that wants to get my Skittles rainbow on as well.
