Man UP

Time to get my head back in the game! I've been going crazy these last few months with moving between states, searching jobs, and working on all sorts of commissions and projects in between. Let's pick things back up eh? I really must get some new sketches up here in the Dumpster. But aside from my own sketches, I have so many amazing images I've collected that I'd love to share that always work as inspiration and motivation for me when working, and I'd hope could work for others as well :). So with that idea and attempting to leave this page solely for sketch work, I'd love to begin managing a Tumblr to share all of the amazing art and photos I'm always wasting my time collecting from the web when I'm intentionally unintentionally procrastinating on getting some new work done! It's loads of retro art and advertisements, sexy womens, and a large array of some of the hippest and mind blowing art that's floating around the infrawebs these days. Be sure to keep and eye out for it, eh?
Otherwise, I haven't got much to throw into the Drawing Dumpster right now. The scanner is yet to be set up and holiday festivities have been consuming a good bit of time. But let me try and dig something up here quick....hmmmm....
AHA! Here we go! Here's a preliminary sketch that I'd been working on before deciding it would be a perfect submission for the 'Metal' Show that I was invited to display in at Freedom Gallery & Tattoo in Lancaster, PA earlier this fall. Just kind of worked out well like that I guess. And what an excellent event with so much AMAZING work by local artists! Perhaps more info and pics on that later.

You can see the finished product here, but of course you know I'm one that is always fond of the beginning sketches of my own work just a teeny bit more ;)

Happy Holidays everyone!

Dr. Sketchy's!

Went to Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School at World Cafe Live in Philly just yesterday and had a blast! It's been such a long time since I've done any live model drawing and what an excellent and outrageous experience to get back into it!

There were wonderfully sexy models all dolled up in wonderfully sexy costumes for a 3 hour 'Back to School' themed drawing session complete with 'Back to School' inspired music!

And guess who won an autographed photo of the lovely 'Little Darling' for their sketchy skillz?...

Lovely. Can't wait to go to the next!

Thank you Dr. Sketchy!

Empty Headed

Something from a few years ago probably that I had just dug out of the ol' dumpster recently. Unfortunately fell off the radar...but will probably remain there. It's not a terrible design. Just feels like old news at this point.

Tree people are SOOOOOO 2009 anyway...

Come on mood shift, shift back to good again

Yikes! Has it really been that long since i've posted something here? Sheesh!

Too much happening it seems, but also nothing at the same time. It's been a funky month. But since I threw my back out on the Fourth of July, I guess I've got some time to switch it up. No new sketches, but here's an oldie i found shoved deep down in the ol' hard drive.

I remember doing this one at work a while back while I was still at the framing shop. We'd use the brown craft paper as backing on a lot of finished framing work. I, on the other hand, used it as a distraction from doing my job.

It wasn't the best material for drawing on. It's kind of coarse, inks will bleed, and it has this thin funky kind of wax coating that didn't always take graphite real well and smeared when trying to erase. Still, I take what I can get, and It's always fun to do drawings on a toned surface like this. You can make a sharp lookin final drawing in half the time, and in terms of sketching, helps to quickly and easily play with and define your lighting and light sources. A very beneficial way to work. I really need to look into getting a sketchbook like this.

Now, If only I could buy some motivation and inspiration to actually use it, and not just say I'm gonna. Guess I'll keep checking those Sunday ads. BJ's usually runs a 2-for-1 on inspiration, right?

OK Girls

It's about time I muster up some energy, and concentration to share here. Once again, I've faulted on keeping up to date with this blog as often as I always tell myself I'm going to. My bad. But I'll fall into it sometime I'm sure. I think I'm finally starting to get into a better habit of drawing and sketching so this should aid in facilitating the blogging process.
In fact, my recent fits of insomnia seem to have led me to wasting my life in the infrawebs. Much of that time has been devoted to sifting through profiles on Part boredom, part hoping to haphazardly stumble across my soulmate. But there's some really purdy ladies on there soooo.... I drew a few :P
I've also tried to give some free portraits via, with much less success. Aside from unnappreciation and severe lack of patience displayed by so many people, there's just too many dicks. But I still might try my luck. We'll see.
