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"

heh

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.

Butterfly


Isn't this just adorably simple? :)

Fairy


No, this isn't phallic at all.

Beta




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

Train

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.

Gargoyle


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.

Dragon


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.
