Flashback Friday #30

I haven’t done one of these flashbacks since the end of April. I was going pretty strong seeing as how I posted 29 weeks in a row. My lack of flashbacking has nothing to do with a lack of material because I have lots of sketchbooks from the days of old. Perhaps I got lazy? Anyway, this Friday I’m back at it.

These drawings are from Sketchbook #8, which I drew in from Sept. 2001 – June 2002.

Enjoy!

Flashback Friday

I haven’t posted anything from my mini sketchbook since December. I worked on this book throughout 2000. That’s right, it’s eleven years old.

So you know, I had to cut my nails for a couple of these photos. I refuse to get photographed with long dirty nails. Gross.

Flashback Friday

This set of drawings is from Sketchbook #4, which I drew in from August 1998 – April 1999. As you can see these are from a phase I went through in which I would fill every empty space. I still do that to this day on some of my pieces. It’s always been hard for me to leave empty space. That’s probably why I’m such a pack rat.

I was also going through some sort of perversion phase. Look again. On close inspection you’ll find all sorts of dirty stuff going on.

Enjoy!

Sketchbook #2 – 1997-1998



(page 11)
This is a little drawing I did of one of my teachers. I almost want to say that maybe I should have been taking notes, but now I’m a fancy artist so I’m probably better off having not taken those notes.


(page 12)
This split lip and split eye thing is a recurring theme throughout my late 90’s sketchbooks.


(page 14)
Colored pencil, what? I don’t know what got into me to use colored pencils.


(page 28)
Hmm…fourteen pages later and I’m back to the colored pencils.


(page 56)
Ah, a Cubist face. At least I lost the colored pencils.

Thanks for looking!

Flashback Friday

This week I decided to revisit my very first hardbound sketchbook, which I worked on in 1997. Dang, this thing is old.


(page 54)
Just a random made up face.


(page 70)
Doodles of hands.


(page 76)
Another random face.

A very manish girl taking over the city.

It looks like I was trying to be clever.

Flashback Friday

For this week’s installment of Flashback Friday we are opening up Sketchbook #3, which I worked on from January 1998 – August 1998.

Flashback Friday

This week you get to watch a video of Sketchbook #9. It’s been a super hectic week setting up for the $100 And Under show. In fact, the big party for the opening starts in about an hour and here I am writing a blog post when I should be cutting my nails and taking a shower.

Enjoy the video!

Flashback Friday

Dang! I’ve actually done this “Flashback Friday” thing 22 weeks in a row. It’s safe to say that it has now become a habit. This week we’re flipping through the pages of Sketchbook #8, which I worked on from September 2001 – June 2002.


For some reason I started doing this thing where I would draw a set of little lips inside of the big lips. And no, it wasn’t out of perversion. In fact, I didn’t even realize that it could be a reference to the female body until just now as I was typing. Hmm…what’s that say about how the subconscience mind works.


I always liked this hand. Like the previous drawing I just realized something I didn’t notice 10 years ago when I drew this. I didn’t finish the eye on the right side. It’s just a circle. Normally, I would draw a line through that and then make an eyeball. This is especially funny to me because I used this image as a sticker design, which means somewhere* out in the world there are stickers of my unfinished drawing. In fact, you know what, I bet I can dig one up for you.


* As it turns out, that “somewhere” turned out to be an old shoebox. I actually postponed this blog so I could go home and find this sticker that I had assumed could be found somewhere.


I guess these are little shark characters. If you look closely you can see that they actually started out as a set of eyes. Let’s face it, I draw a lot of faces. Well, back then I always started with the eyes. With this drawing I did the eyes and then realized the shapes looked like sharks, so then I just drew sharks instead. This is why I encourage people to throw away all their pencils. When you draw with a pen you can’t erase and you allow the element of chance to enter your creations. This opens the door for possibility and puts you in a place where you can create something you had never intended to create in the first place. And that’s a beautiful thing.


I liked eating at this place.


Kind of abstract, but there are a few faces hiding in there.

That concludes this episode of “Flashback Friday”.
Thanks for tuning in!

Flashback Friday

I know I know…Friday is almost over, but let me tell you, it’s been a busy day. I won’t get into the details because that’s a whole post of it’s own, but I will say this. It was good being busy. I had a great night.

For today we are going through Sketchbook #9, which I drew in from June 2002 – May 2003.
