DJ Shadow - Organ Donor

So it's been a minute since I've uploaded anything to my blog... too busy with homework lately. Plus Spring Break has kind of given me some internet laziness.

I would just like to throw it out there that I'm still alive and kickin'.

Not much to talk about today and only a few pieces scanned from my sketchbook.


Title:  Rebellion
Date: March 26, 2013
Medium: Ink
Scale: Original is approx. 8.5" x 11"

Notes:  This is literally a quote from my fiancee. She is such a clever lady, that one. 

Punk is Dead

Title:  Punk is Dead
Date: March 23, 2013
Medium: Ink

Notes:  Simplified version of an image that I saw not too long ago. I thought it would look awesome simplified in comic form!

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

Title:  Girls Just Wanna Have Fun
Date: March 18?, 2013
Medium: Ink
Scale: Original is 11" x 14"

Notes:  A cropped version of another ink drawing that I did recently. It is a sort of complex version of the simplification method that I've been using lately. I think it's interesting how it looks like not only a girl with a coat, but she sort of looks like she is part bug or floating in water or with a cloak.

The Spring Break came and went... and I felt for the first time completely relaxed and calm. I pretty much just lazed around for a whole week. About the only thing that I intended to do that I didn't was to take pictures of my sketchbook pieces for you online folks. I've been filling sketchbook pages with ink drawings that look like some crazy comic book stuff. I blame Zak Smith entirely. I've been on a kick of his work lately. It's like this awesome mixture of dark and cyberpunk with some comic book style thrown in there and even some abstracty craziness for kicks.

So because of the looseness of his work, it has sort of started to rub off on me in that way. I have a few pages of sketchbook goodness that I really want to post, so I'll have to get on to that whole 'take pictures and post them' thing some time soon. But for now just a few snippets of them arts.

As of right now these are so rough that I don't even know if they need a caption below them... I'm going to just keep chugging along and if they get more refined I think I'll label them.

Smell ya later folks!
