7″x7″ skull studies

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 4, 2014 by n8vandyke

I was asked to be in a gallery show a little while back and the theme of the show is “Less Is More” with the idea that all of the pieces had to be 12″x12″ or smaller. I thought it’d be a fun excuse to do small skull studies in a variety of mediums. The end result makes for a great collection. The opening is tonight (sorry for the late notice) at 111 Minna in San Francisco and I will be in attendance to support my one dozen dead buddies.

Dr. Jane Goodall

Today marks Dr. Jane Goodall’s 80th birthday. It’d be rude of me not to acknowledge her and all the work she has done for chimps. I wish we could clone people like her.IMG_20140403_125902

Batman turns 75!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on April 2, 2014 by n8vandyke

Batman’s 75th Birthday was yesterday and I wanted to do a quick sketch to honor the old bat. I haven’t posted on this blog as often as I’d like. Hopefully I’ll get together an art dump soon…

Valentine’s Day

This year I thought I’d do a drawing specifically to honor/dishonor the day so many of us begrudgingly participate in in one form or another. Here’s a piece titled “SELF-LOVE”. I drew the left half and then flipped it in Photoshop because this would have been a real bitch to draw twice.

I decided to have a little fun with Back to the Future… and redheads. Sometimes you have to push real work aside and just draw something for no other reason than because it makes you laugh.

Family Portrait

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , on February 2, 2014 by n8vandyke

Here’s a look at a recent commission I did. I was asked to draw a family portrait with the members as their respective animals… two dragons, a mouse and an ox. It was a fun one to noodle with detail. Part of the reason it is designed in such a tight bunch is because the client is also hoping to get it tattooed on his arm with the wings wrapping around his inner bicep. My apologies to the tattoo artist that is given this detailed piece and has to translate it to ink.

Sketch followed by finished piece… click to enlarge.
