Not too happy with this drawing. But I can’t be too hard on myself I did it while I was unable to sleep and watching Breaking Bad. I was testing out a couple of new brushes and techniques and am happy that I did. I have no idea why I decided to doodle Abe though.

I went and saw Death Rides a Horse at the Colonial Theatre in Phoenixville last night. We both drew on the stubs from Return of the living Dead and we decided to do the same this time. My friend Colin and I have decided to make drawing on the ticket stubs part of our movie going experience at that theatre so here are our ticket stubs from the film. We didn’t impose any rules on ourselves so we will have complete freedom each time (for instance for Return of the Living Dead I drew on the ticket in pen and colored it in Photoshop, this time I did all the art in photoshop).
Colin completed his first this morning:

I had been out at thrift stores most of the morning and didn’t get around to working on mine till tonight. Here it is:

An illustration of these two dudes that have been on TV a lot recently. This was an illustration I had made about how both Romney and Obama support the NDAA and Kill List and that because of that they are both bad choices for America. I don’t really know how I personally stand when it comes to this, because I tend to believe that in the interest of national security maybe the government is withholding evidence. Either way though I think this turned out to be a pretty sweet illustration. I drew Barak Obama and Mitt Romney both as devils to illustrate the topic.
Well, it’s November 5th. I’m watching V for Vendetta tonight. I would read the graphic novel instead, but I just re-read it a couple weeks back.

I tagged my friend Colin in the picture when I posted it to Facebook because we had gone together to see the film. Then he sketched something up on his stub as well.

Yeah, I know its been awhile. But I haven’t drawn much with a ballpoint pen since I finished 365 days of drawing with it. I really like drawing with Micron and Faber-Castell pens. But every now and then I suppose I’ll pop back to using a ballpoint. Here is something I sketched up in ballpoint and then finished in Photoshop. I have been watching a ton of horror movies and such recently and Hitchcok stuff is definatly in the rotation. I still plan to write a long “what I learned” piece about my 365 day project, but in the meantime I hope you enjoy this Hitchcock drawing. Also, please please please check out my other illustration page Thecrayonwar.com and you can also check out my DeviantArt page here.
Wow, I have drawn something new every single day for 365 days for this blog. I loved every minute of it, it was a great experience. I must admit though I am super happy to be done. It frees up my time to work on other illustration and artwork.
I now present to you day 365. I kept it simple and did a banner for completing the project. Since I have been feeling very Halloween inspired as of late I kept with that theme.
I wasn’t sure what to do for day 365 and my friend Pat Woods said I should do a self portrait because people who follow this blog probably don’t know what I look like. Well, my wife had also been pestering me for quite awhile to draw her for this site as well. I always avoided drawing her because I didn’t think I would be able to make her look as beautiful as she looks in life. Well, I failed… she looks so much more amazing than the drawing I drew… but anyway here is a drawing of me and my wife. I couldn’t have finished this project without her support!
I am ready to take a break for a little while. I plan on posting about what I learned through doing this project and maybe a couple other things pretty soon. Please, anyone who wants to continue to follow my illustration/craft/artwork that I create can do so over at Thecrayonwar.com. Now that this project is complete I will be posting quite a bit more than I had been over on that site.
Thanks to everyone who has followed my blog over the past year!
Besides that shameless self promotion I also finished the fiend skull I had been working on.
I couldn’t get my scanner to pick it up the way I wanted. I think because I already clear coated it with an acrylic spray.
1 more day to go!
