This is some recent stuff, mostly from my sketchbook. There's the winged skeleton figure. I went to the Filmore recently and was looking at the posters and decided that I wanted to make one and try to sell it to them. So I did the sketch painting and I liked that a lot, then I did the larger version. Something was lost between the two, but oh well. The content is nothing new or interesting, but I still had fun doing it. I'm trying to get away from drawing really cliche things like skeletons. I just took this awful picture of it, just to post it here, but I need to take it to be professionally photographed. Then we've got these intricate pen drawings. There was a time when I wasn't working very much and I was so bored that I just wanted to do really intricate things to fill my time. So I just tried to come up with some images where I could draw patterns and lots of feathers. In the end they didn't take very long so I was still bored. Same thing with these trees. They were painted over shitty drawings. Lately all I want to draw is trees. They're similar to the pen drawings because I just used them as a means to escape boredom. So I tried to paint every section a slightly different shade of the same color. It took a while. Then there's this mummy. I saw a little thumbnail of a c.d. cover in a magazine recently and it was a mummy's face, it looked cool and inspired me to draw one. Again, wanting to do intricate stuff, I made sure there were lots of wraps to paint. Seeing these all together I notice that I've been using the same colors for a while, that dark green under-painting with black and french grey/blue, then deep portrait pink, I think it looks nice. I've also been very painterly lately and I like where it's going. Maybe I should explain the title of this post. Yesterday Tony Wolf of the fantastic band Greyskull was telling me how he checks my blog daily and wanted to know why I don't update it very often, so there you go. When you get back from tour, this post will be waiting for you! I'm not going to have a job for a good long while so HOPEFULLY you'll be seeing a lot more art work from me. Look for the second Unified School District cover in the next couple weeks. The a couple weeks after that there should be a 12" cover for the band Ed Gein, easily the biggest band I've worked for, I'm very excited, more on that later. Then a cover for the ever so young and passionate band from Reno, Groove Box Replica. Then someday a cover for Greyskull, once they get a permanent drummer and get into the studio. In the spare time I want to work on a comic book, but don't expect that any time soon.
