The reason I don't do portraits ...

... this is supposed to be Bob Dylan. I think it turned into a weird Bob Dylan/Vinnie Barbarino hybrid.

"Ba ba ba, ba ba Bob Dylan"

Comic book art

This is Lucifer from Lady Death.

Looking back at some of the stuff I used to draw (the comic book stuff) I'm realizing that I'm moving in a different direction. Weird.

I have one sketch book that's filled w/nothing but celtic tattoo work. I filled that one in about 2 mths and haven't done much of that type of art since.

Also have a sketch book from quite a few years ago that is nothing but tattoo art.

Not to put too fine of a cheese-head on it (damn Packers) but I'm beginning to wonder if I'm not trying to "find" myself. Drawing ... calms me.

Booty anyone?

Tomb Raider

This one is from a few yrs ago - about the time I really started getting into drawing.

Hard (for me) to believe that I made it to the ripe ol' age of 30 something before I figured out I could draw. Then a few more years to actually believe it. I still look at some of my drawings and think "I can't believe that I drew this".

And to answer (quite) a few inquiries, I'll probably never do anything w/this ability. Just don't have the confidence. I'm weird that way.

This has always been one of my favorites.

Work envelope

Whipped this one out tonight for another driver on his work envelope. Cute n' quick.


Isn't this just adorably simple? :)

No, this isn't phallic at all.


I have to explain to everyone what this is. Not sure what I think about that.

And not the Grammy winning type.

I started drawing this for a friend and disliked the way it was turning out, so this is where it sits.

Time killers ...

I often draw butterflies. Just to kill time when I have a screaming urge to be drawing but don't really have an idea as to what I want to work on.

Mini Me

This is how I have drawn myself. :)

Vargas girl

Vargas used to draw these incredibly hot girls back in the '40's. I love his pictures, but have a hard time drawing them.

She might get finished some day. I believe she is Jan. 1940.


I started coloring in w/some markers and decided I didn't like it so I just left it as is.

"The Losers"

Didja see the movie "The Losers"? If not, do so now, it has some pretty good one-liners in it.

Anyway, these are from the beginning of the movie when they're playing Blind Man's Bluff.

Cougar was my favorite. I like the long-haired quiet ones w/the big guns. :)

Halloween 2010

More Halloween pics from this last year.

Superbowl 2011

I was all right w/this one, until the Steelers lost.

Dita von Teese

Done by Olivia.


I adapted this one from a Chinese restaurant menu.

Cherry Blossom

This will be my next tattoo. Cherry blossoms are my absolute favorite flower and time of year.

I really like how this turned out, even w/out color.

It will be on my left forearm, starting on my inside wrist and wrapping around as it ascends. I'll probably add butterflies or a fairies to it later.

Dark fairy

Added another set of wings to this one.

'64 Impala

Was drawing this for the guys that work on our cabs but never finished. I showed it to the one guy that's in the picture, he said "I look fat!" I told him he wasn't fat, he was "manly".

But I like the car.

Dark fairy

Been working on this one for a few days. Killing time.

My robbery

This young man robbed me a few years back. And another cab. And then another but was never caught.

Also, according to the Ptld PD he had killed some people at the bar where I picked him up just about a week earlier.

He had a big gun.

I heard a lot of "no way he would have done that to me" type of comments from a few of the boy cab drivers. I survived and he only got $15 outta me. Seems like a pretty good conclusion to me.


Pretty obvious. And a very quick draw if I remember correctly.


Drawn on another drivers' work envelope. I see many things wrong w/this one but I like him 'cuz I did this one in pen instead of pencil. First time trying that. Kinda proud of myself. :)


I don't remember the how's or why's of this one. I do like him tho.

Holy ...

... whatever.

Drew this for Christmas this last year.


There isn't much I dislike about this one except maybe the top dude, but the bottom one ... I think he's sexy. Probably the eyes.

Girl w/a snake

This is a Boris Vallejo painting.

I think everything except the hands are sexy on this one.

I get a lot of people in my cab that feel the need to critique my drawings, even after admitting they can't draw a stick. I'm often amused by their criticisms.

Another Boris Vallejo ...

I really like this one, the use of white spaces ... it was fun to do.
