I love doing this blog… but making a drawing everyday no matter how simple really takes away from making other things. I plan on getting back into the swing of showing my work at art shows as soon as these 365 days are over. The last two shows I was in were all the way back in August and then October of 2011. I don’t regret a thing though, I am so proud of myself for actually sticking with this and getting as far as I have. I have drawn something new every day for 254 days so far, and I’m almost up to 100 left to go!
For something completely different here is something I started drawing today on a old book binding/cover.
I was originally going to pick some Dinosaur Jr. lyrics for the man to be saying (I’ve been listening to them a lot recently), but now I’m not so sure. I’m trying to figure out exactly what he should be saying and if I should add some white and darker blue to the finished piece. Anyway, when I do finish this I’m sure I’ll post it over at Thecrayonwar.com.
I woke up super early today (5am) and drew this. My brother-in-law is really into the car scene and we went to a car show together last weekend. There was a lot of Rat Fink merchandise at the show. I guess I’ve had Rat Fink on my mind since then and I decided to draw my own personal Rat Fink today. If you don’t know about Rat fink you can read more about him here. I was listening to the band OFF! while I drew this so I put him in an OFF! t-shirt. OFF! is a newer band with Keith Morris on vocals. Keith Morris was the frontman of the punk bands Black Flag and the Circle Jerks. If you liked those bands you will probably love OFF!
Oh yeah… and here is an illustration I completed the other day for an article about Facebook and how it is slowly dying. On top of that I feel like the public’s faith in banks and the stock market continues to fade. At a time like this things like what Mark Zuckerberg pulled are not helping public opinion at all. I posted this on my other page Thecrayonwar.com as well.
This weeks topic over at Illustration Friday was Faded. It works out well because I just finished up an illustration for an article about Facebook and how it is slowly dying. On top of that I feel like the public’s faith in banks and the stock market continues to fade. At a time like this things like what Mark Zuckerberg pulled are not helping public opinion at all.
Today the company Beef Products laid off 650 workers. Although I am glad that there will be less “pink slime” out there in our food supply I still feel horible for all the people who lost their jobs. Here is an article about the lay offs.
Here is what I imagine a truck driver looks like…
I realize that not all truck drivers look like this, but this is what pops into my head when I think of one. This and the truck drivers from the movie The Wizard.
Today I have decided to also post an older illustration of mine that I am quite fond of. I made this about a year ago for the website IllustrationFriday.com, the topic was Swept. I was digging through some of the files on my old computer when I came across this.
