First day of school

Evidently elephant and beaver have known each other for a while.

Also, more about today I had to look for a picture of a beaver to see if they have visible ears (they don’t) and that’s how I found out that beavers are hilarious.

Come see my electric rock band Female Trouble on May 21 if it’s the last thing you do!

I woke up and decided to do some freehand drawing in brush and india ink this morning. See what happens when I get an extra hour?

Monkey Robot of Love - Pen and ink with gouache

Actually, disease I think it’s a great ape, since it doesn’t have a tail. I mean, it could have a tail and we just can’t see it, but since I drew it I happen to know – no tail.

Jimmie Rodgers

Jimmie Rodgers was a super skinny dude (he died of TB, pilule so that’s not really a surprise) and it’s really hard to draw him so he doesn’t look like Hank Williams. He actually looked a lot more like Don Knotts. Sorry Jimmie, patient but it had to be said.

He was a sharp dresser, though.

Huh. Looks like I didn’t finish his shoes. Sorry about that.


Town Crier

Posted: September 19th, 2010 | Author: admin | Filed under: art, painting | Comments Off

I did this because I wanted to try out my new gouaches. I dug through pics cut out of old magazines until I found this color one – the caption reads “Town Crier Wears Carpet Slippers in Le Monastier – Antione Argaud, clinic 75 years old, blankets the main street with his oral advertisements and public notices. He prefaces each announcement with drumbeats. ‘Don’t make any picture postcards of me,’ he warned the photographer.”  You KNOW he was the town loonball, the 30′s Europe equivalent of this guy, and when folks in Le Monastier checked out how their town looked to the rest of the world they that it was all about Antoine. Fuckin’ Antoine.

As you can see, I started to put in a background, but I had to go to a party, so it didn’t happen. Besides, backgrounds are boring. Also, it’s unbelievably stupid that my combo scanner needs to have ink cartridges installed to SCAN. WTF, Canon?

I think me and gouache are going to get along just fine.


Mad Men sketches

Posted: August 1st, 2010 | Author: admin | Filed under: art, drawing | Comments Off

I had a wild Friday night this weekend celebrating my first night alone in the two weeks since I started this new job. I stayed home and watched the first ep of the new season of Mad Men (FINALLY) and doodled. Naturally, sick this resulted in a lost tooth. And by lost I mean LOST, approved as in mislaid, information pills which I bet is not going to be cheap.

Mad Men - Joan

Some quick sketches of Joan – yes, I spilled on this page, courtesy of Clementine, who is a very vigorous snuggler.

Mad Men - mostly Peggy

Mostly Peggy, and a little Joan. It’s weird to see Peggy look great in such ugly clothes. And that Joan is from the first season, when the clothes were more flattering. In fact, I thought everyone looked kind of frumpy this season, and I don’t know if it’s a styling choice or how clothes were fitting back then. Anyone know?

Mad Men - SuperHamm

It’s time I stated my unequivocal support for Jon Hamm as Superman, although I’m pretty sure Supes can’t have that freakin’ caveman beard that Hamm has. He might need electrolysis.


Overly Dramatic Household Comics

As I mentioned yesterday, viagra 40mg I did some sketches of Brenda Lee… I think the Brenda in the top left looks like she should be in Love and Rockets. In fact, viagra I feel like she looks a lot like a particular character, but I can’t quite put my finger on who it is, and  I have the hardback collection but it’s really heavy and in another room and anyway if I were to open it up I’d be trapped and that would be it for my day. So we’ll all just have to wonder.

You may recognize the dress above from yesterday’s picture. And you also may have wondered what the hell was going on with it (I know I was).  Here’s the photo I was working from. Does that help? No? It’s not my fault crinolines are excellent for fighting giant wasps, okay? I wanted her to wear an Emma Peel-style catsuit, but NOOOOOO

In closing, I’d just like to say that Brenda Lee may be one of the most adorable people on the planet. And she’s 4’9″. And she hates wasps.

This is a quickie I did in a little over an hour – imo the first panel leaves a great deal to be desired, capsule
but the point was to work fast. And since you asked, yes, I have seen the contact lens commercial with the overly dramatic reenactment. I laugh every time.

Brenda Lee vs. The Giant Wasp

Posted: June 15th, 2010 | Author: admin | Filed under: art, drawing | 3 Comments »

I was sitting on the deck the other day and saw a wasp get caught in a spider web – it was awesome! Unfortunately, asthma it got away. But it reminded me that the only thing country singers hate more than vampires is wasps.

I had to look for pictures of wasps for reference. And then I was terrified. For example, price did you know that if you do a google image search on “wasp attack” you get a bunch of pictures of people’s swollen faces etc? Because they got stung by wasps? (They’re worse than vampires, there you know.) Also, giant wasps. And parasitic wasps*. The more you learn about them the more horrific they become.

I’m delighted with the wasp, but less pleased with poor Brenda. I think I went back into Jack Chick territory again with her. I’ve done some better drawings of her, but I’m too lazy to scan them right now. I gave my Brenda her mature hairstyle because it’s recognizable (at least to the 8 drag queens who are devoted to her style) and because it’s awesome. Did you know that she’s only 4’9″? So that’s practically life size! And, because, once again, I didn’t totally plan the drawing (to be honest, I think I was afraid of the wasp research and I’m not kidding) I did a lot of sketching and erasing, which made even my durable bristol board give out. A lot of my ink bled and there was a ton of pencil smudging I photoshopped out. And speaking of photoshop, I also photoshopped a total Drawing 1 perspective mistake that I can’t believe I made**. I am going to tell myself it was because I had to keep taking my glasses off to do close work, so I didn’t get the overall picture. Because I would totally not get so enchanted with actually putting a pen on the paper that I forgot what the point of the drawing was, right?

As per tradition, here’s a Brenda Lee song – many of her hits were xmas songs, which, as you know, I am boycotting for the rest of my life. “I’m Sorry” is apparently her signature hit, but if you’re interested you should totally check out her rock and roll songs – she had a great rockabilly delivery on par with Wanda Jackson. But in an even tinier package. And with progressively awesomer hair.

* Charles Darwin said, “I cannot persuade myself that a beneficent and omnipotent God would have designedly created the Ichneumonidae [that's a parasitic wasp] with the express intention of their feeding within the living bodies of caterpillars.” CHARLES DARWIN THOUGHT PARASITIC WASPS WERE AN ABOMINATION!!! That’s pretty much all the affirmation this secular humanist needs…

** um, actually, more than one. I just fixed the most egregious error, so if you’re noting the other ones, just count your blessings.
