“Off My Meds”
5″ x 7″ limited edition print on wood, signed and numbered on the back
$50, plus shipping
I drew this using Adobe Ideas for iPad.
I’d get more in depth about this, but I currently have a weak wifi connection and am trying to post something before midnight (which is 10 minutes away) to meet my “blog a day” goal.
Thanks for looking!
These are from Sketchbook #3, my 1998 sketchbook.
With the gallery move last month I found some drawings that have never been framed or even displayed. They’ve just been moved from place to place for years and I would really like to find homes for this stuff.
This one is called “King’s Delight” and I drew it in February 2000. It’s 16″ x 20″ and up for auction now on my Facebook Fan Page.

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.
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.
Sketchbook #2 – 1997-1998
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.
This split lip and split eye thing is a recurring theme throughout my late 90′s sketchbooks.
Colored pencil, what? I don’t know what got into me to use colored pencils.
Hmm…fourteen pages later and I’m back to the colored pencils.
Ah, a Cubist face. At least I lost the colored pencils.
Thanks for looking!
This week I decided to revisit my very first hardbound sketchbook, which I worked on in 1997. Dang, this thing is old.
Just a random made up face.
Doodles of hands.
Another random face.
A very manish girl taking over the city.
It looks like I was trying to be clever.
For this week’s installment of Flashback Friday we are opening up Sketchbook #3, which I worked on from January 1998 – August 1998.
Have a fantastical weekend, homies!
The following doodles are from Sketchbook #7, which I worked on from November 2000 – September 2001.
And that concludes this segment of “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!
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.
There you have it!
Now go have yourself a wonderful weekend.
