The Pen is Mightier.

I've been going back to the old standby, ballpoint pen, recently.  It's a beautiful tool of commitment, precision, and lack of smudginess.  All qualities I admire in a medium.

This is a pretty apt interpretation of how I felt right before going onstage for open mic.

And maybe how I felt after?  Dissipating.  
This prompted me to get back more into more detailed life drawings.
I'm really digging drawing musicians lately. 
Challenging, and full of movement.

Various sketches.
This last one spurred something on in my consciousness.
An awareness that different hatchings can co-exist.  
They don't have to stop at each others' borders.
I think I just leveled up, shading-wise.

Some more recent sketches with crappy phone camera.

Uhh... no comment.

An interpretation of a dragon.  I guess.

My interpretation of a meat head.

I saw this experiment done where a person intentionally spills coffee on their paper, and then tries to draw something out of it.  Those people usually came up with more interesting coffee shapes than this, but I think it turned out not too bad, as a first attempt.

Old Comic.

So it turns out I never posted this.  It's a couple years old, but just a goofy comic I made in about a day in photoshop, just to say that I started and finished SOMETHING.
