Happy Friday

Here are a few drawings I've recently drawn in my sketchbook or scrap pieces of paper. I really like the look of the first pic. I took some pictures of myself making this goofy face and used it as reference. The second and third pics look weird because I was drawing in the dark using a tiny little flash light to help me see. Didn't want to disturb my wife's sleep. The fourth pic I was playing with some red ink. Then the pic of the gorilla looking thing is suppose to be Chewbacca but I didn't really like the way it was turning out but I still like it.

I recently got this book called "In the Studio: Visits With Contemporary Cartoonists" by Todd Hignite. It features interviews with nine cartoonist like R. crumb, Charles Burns, Seth, and Art Spiegelman to name a few. I've read a bit of it so far and I like it but I especially like how they show the work of other artists who have influence them. Very Awesome.

  2. yeah, chewie is awesome... i also spy MF DOOM on that sketchpad! "HOLD IT DOWN LIKE SHATNER DO SPOCK... IT'S NO JOKE LIKE KNOCK KNOCK!"
