Merry Christmas everyone!!!!! (This blog still has no followers). I felt like putting up a new post today. Sadley though I'm at my home in Cincinnati and don't have any new art here to put up. So I went to my Deviant art page (damn that terrible site) and Jacked a bunch of my old artwork off of it to put up here.
So these are some old sketches I did 2-3 years ago. Sadley I don't draw like this anymore. I used to draw in pen all the damn time. In fact it was about the only thing I would use. The first line I would put down would be the last line I put down.
There are 2 ways you can look at drawing. One way is that there is a right and a wrong. Either you got the drawing right, or it's wrong! "It's terrible the legs are too long, the bodies too short, or whatever." Thats where I am now. Animation put me there, you've got to stay on model, otherwise it looks like crap.
The other way is that every line you put down is true, and beautiful ,and is an expression of the allmighty scribbed through your blessed hand. I guess thats where I was, whether I thought that at the time or not. It's too bad because I miss the sketchy rough style i didn't realize I could loose. Well whatever, I rule and merry Christmas.

Well this is exciting. I felt like I had to put up some artwork, so here some is. This is a flyer I made for my band Johnny and the Snakes. Yes I realize I spelled Johnny "Johny" on the image. My bad, what can I say, I don't know how to spell my own bands name.
It was fun working on this because this is the closest thing I've done to an illustration in a about a year. Not to mention it looks a lot better than any illustration I did, when I did.
I pulled in real textures for the backgrounds, and gave the characters flat solid colors. This was a new idea for me but I think it turned out pretty sweet. I think I'm gonna try this technique again soon but I want to get even weirder with it. I think things could get pretty psychedelic real quick.
Any way thats post #1 expect more soon.
