A sketch that came together really quick of possibly my favorite band. They're at least in my the top 3. The Clash! Or, more so, Joe Strummer. I can't stress enough how much I'm inspired, empowered and just pure love this band. Microns, brush, black and white ink on bristol. Long live The Clash!

A while back my buddy Marty, did me a favour. Over a beer or four, with Marty asking nicely, I agreed to do a drawing of his dog Gus. He's a monster of a dog, but a total softy. Plus, I wanted to do something nice for helping me out.
That was back in late July. I didn't end up finishing the drawing and giving it to Martin until Oct. 11th.
This is one of many reasons I hate doing any sort of commission work. It takes me forever and knowing it's taking me soo long, makes things worse. Especially when it's a portrait of some sort. It's not that I hate doing the work. I just want it to look right and that's the hard part. People know what their pets, baby, parents, whatever, look like better than I do. Trying to get something down on paper that will satisfy them and myself, drives me nuts. Which leads to mistakes. Not little tiny one's that are easy to fix. Big, bad one's that take forever to blend out.
So, you can ask me to draw your (enter family member or pet here). Chances are, 99.9999 per cent of the time, I'm going to say no! Sorry.
Well, after all that rambling, here's Gus. Brush pen, microns, ink wash, white ink on bristol.

Ash from Evil Dead 2. I love this movie. Actually, I love the whole series. I realize the lighting is all over the place, but I figured by this point in the movie, things get really weird. So, if they can go crazy, I can too. Brush pen, microns, ink wash, water colour (red) on bristol.

This drawing was for my friend Matt Hart, a.k.a. The Russian Futurist. He was going to use it on his new single, but the turn around was really quick. It still may make in there somewhere. Regardless, the song is great and the man is huge talent. Check him out!
Some really good friends of mine own and run a great place, with unreal coffee, called Far Out Coffee Post in Vancouver. I thought it would be fun to do a sketch for them. The only problem was, I never finished it.. until today. So here it is, I'll be sending it to them tonight. I know, I'm a slacker.
Random sketch of me spilling ink, again. Ink on bristol.
