Busted 8

Now I'm just drawing all the jewelry this display bust is supposed to present. And we have a nose ring, folks (one which even I can wear should I choose, actually)

Back Once More

I think this sketch is finished. It wasn't feeling right where I left it, so I simplified it and just made it about the big pants. Which indeed it is, although I like the juxtaposition of ink in the way it's painted, with the ink on his body. Maybe I should have called it Inky.

Dancing Kitty

My friend Justin asked me to draw an update on my Kitty's Kostume Korner drawing from over 30 years ago, and I haven't gotten to it til now. But I seem to fall asleep at my desk a lot, so this rough is all I can manage right now.


Does this look like a tipsy sway?

I got so drunk yesterday because there was a Spring mixer at work, and we were drinking (cheap) white wine, then I went out to dinner with my boss for even more wine! So while I drew this yesterday, I didn't bother to upload it. How could I? I was plastered, haha. Wine always hits me hard...

The J.Crew menswear director has just parted ways with the company he so ably repped for these past several years, so there were a lot of articles on his leaving. I thought I'd do a caricature of him since it was so clear n my head how to do him.

I don't understand why but it's two hours before I normally sleep, and I was falling asleep—hard!—while trying to draw this. So, Sleepyhead is the title.

Crouchy 3

Just trying to figure out this pose without an actual reference...

Busted 7

Not the best rendering for the pendant, but It's weird now that I've done the figure, to realize that teh technique (crosshatching) won't really work for the featured jewelry that the bust was drawn for!  Ah well, regroup...

Busted 6

It's actual drawing and working on the image, but you won't actually get a sense of it from the sketch versus previously, but anyhow, here it is.

Crouchy 2

While trying to refine the pose, I kept on reworking the face which is starting to look much nicer, I must say.

Thursday, April 20, 2017


I saw a pic on Instagram the other day of a guy grouching, and it occurred to me I might want to learn how to draw that pose. Well, I did save the reference pic, but I didn't even look at it to draw this one, just relied on memory, as well as adjusting the pose based on how I place one element after the other.

Drew the beautiful model Edward at tonight's Queer Salon. He was very model-y, with his deep-set eyes and slightly upturned nose and mouth corners.

Inky Rude Boy

I love a guy who's spread-eagled. Hehe.

Inky Street Scene

This ink brush just keeps on inspiring me to be much looser with my sketches, and to allow for more abstract forms.

Happy Bunny Day

I actually posted this on Instagram on Easter Sunday, and I think I spent so much time getting it ready for there that I totally forgot to post it yesterday. So this is Easter Sunday's (less religious, somewhat inappropriate) drawing.

Inky 2

I kept drawing and sketching in that ink stye borne of the chosen ink brush. It's rather fun. There's a freedom and immediacy it kinda demands.

Friday, April 14, 2017


I picked out a brush from Kyle’s Inkbox and started sketching, and  the American Comics Inker brush kinda determined what I did based on the strokes. Always fun to draw in a style you didn't know you had, but media can do that.

Busted 5

I finally got direction on which jewelry to place, so I'm drawing them in. There's bound to be a level of stylisation in the renderings, but I'll figure it out.

Ripe For The Picking

I found a new clothing resource that isn't very popular, but after receiving an order of three items and liking every singe one (as opposed to returning entire orders like I have been lately), I'm quite surprised and stoked... and trying not to buy everything!

Busted 4

After months I am finally finishing up this sketch for the 'client' (quotes mine since it's a freebie job). Starting out by laying down the foundations of some of the jewelry I have to render on this form.

Ripped Michael

Went to another Drawing new York session tonight, specifically for the mode Michael, who was said to have a phenomenally ripped phsysique—and the rumors were true! Sadly, I was having an off night and did not get the kinds of drawings I thought I would.

White Shirtless

Never mind that I have a gaxillion unfinished drawings I need to resolve, but if I get an idea in my head, I can at least sketch it out as a rough before adding it to my pile of To Dos, right?

Current Mood 11.10.16 part 5

Funny how a few weeks without opening the file, everything looks wrong. I suppose time off is always good, hindsight is 20/20 after all. Rejiggering this guy...

Bright Walkers

Just figuring out croquis, and the right contraposto for a walking figure.

Yellow Ear 5

I really do need to get this done... plus it nearly is anyhow, methinks. I just need to feel it's done.

Blue & Black 2

Funny how a drawing evolves. His face seemed to indicate some sort of edgy stare, so I figured he needed something edgy to wear to go with his hair., i.e. heels, cropped straight legs and a leather apron. We'll see if I even finish this sketch.

Blue & Black

I'm rather into this shade of blue I've been using as 'ink' for the last three days. For whatever reason, it evokes a different kind of feeling in me when I draw with it, as opposed to simple black. That said, all I've done so far is doodle with it, so we'll see...

There's a model making the rounds of the top ecomm websites, and she's got a look that part Jennifer Beals in Flashdance, approachable but young edgy. I started out drawing the villainess Selene from the X-men, but somehow ended up drawing this girl because she's my favorite model on the Shopbop site I've been working on.

Legion (Blue)

Looking forward to seeing the finale of Legion's first season. it's a great quirky show that doesn't necessarily really evoke the original comic book character, but it's damn enjoyable in and of itself. Although Dan Stevens—appealing as he is—lacks David Haller's signature brush cut.
