Sketch o’the Week- Better Call Saul!

October 18th, 2017 | Posted in Sketch O'The Week

I’m still traveling abroad so this week’s Sketch o’the Week are some very quick digital sketches of three of the stars of the TV show “Better Call Saul”: Bob Odenkirk, Rhea Seehorn and Michael Mando. These were done as class warmups at one of my workshops. What I do is ask the class for a show or film as our warm up subject, then I do a websearch for some of the actors on the show and we do quick warmup drawings, so no one knows what’s coming. 5-10 minutes max. I’ve included the references we drew from: READ MORE

Sketch o’the Week- Donald Trump!

October 11th, 2017 | Posted in Sketch O'The Week

I’ve gotten a number of inquiries as to when I will do a caricature of the 45th President to update my president’s poster: Well this is it, but it was not for the poster. I’ve actually licensed several of these individual images since I did them for various purposes. A publisher from the northwest recently licensed all of the them for an educational book about the U.S. Presidents, but they needed them in color and of course they needed Trump. So, I did the above sketch in the same style and colored all of them in. They are printing fairly small so the color is… READ MORE

Sketch o’the Week- Tom Petty!

October 4th, 2017 | Posted in Classic Rock Sketch Series

I was sad to hear of the sudden death of Tom Petty this past Monday. He was one of those rockers who had a bigger impact on music than you think at first glance. When I heard he had passed away I initially thought “that’s too bad” but I didn’t consider myself much of a fan. Then I got thinking about his music and how much of it I really liked. He was one of the early major players on Mtv back when Mtv actually played music videos. “Damn the Torpedoes” was one of the biggest albums of the early 80’s. He ghad hit after… READ MORE

Sketch o’the Week- Jim Parsons!

September 20th, 2017 | Posted in Sketch O'The Week

This week’s SotW is from my inking demo at my workshop last weekend. One of the things I do at these workshops is demonstrate my inking and color techniques I use for MAD and other clients. This caricature of “The Big Bang Theory” star Jim Parsons was drawn and inked on the spot (in fact I asked the class to suggest a subject and then Googled up an image as reference) using Pelikan’s Drawing Ink A, a Hunt 102 and a #2 red sable brush. The straight lines was me demonstrating how to ink straight lines using a brush or pen nib/Crow quill. Speaking of… READ MORE
