This is what happens when I can’t sleep and I want to draw something other than a baseball player: daydreams about being Nicki Minaj.
WOW. I just stumbled upon the work of Feg Murray while looking up pictures of Kiki Cuyler on google image search. I am blown away. I was just telling Lei-Leen yesterday about how I wish I was born 80 years earlier so I could have been a newspaper comic artist, which is what I really feel like Every Hall of Famer is at it’s heart. And then today, I find this. Feg was primarily known for his “Seeing Stars” series, which featured Hollywood celebrities in a format similar to Ripley’s Believe It Or Not. I can’t find much more info on these baseball drawings, but I am so inspired right now! I just want to draw for days.
mattias adolfsson. his whole website is full of gems.
This is a piece I did for an art show that never happened.
It is for sale (ronnythebear at gmail dot com). Sold! :)
If today was not a crooked highway,
If tonight was not a crooked trail,
If tomorrow wasn’t such a long time,
Then lonesome would mean nothing to you at all.
stephin-merritt-of-my-heart. a sketchy version as practice for the series of antiheroes i’ve been working on.
30 Drawings Challenge, 24: A favorite childhood memory.
So far behind. Plan to finish this week though, and then we’ll move on to previews of my baseball zine in progress!!
Spent my afternoon trying to draw Kanye West. This one is officially stamped rejected: his hands are too small, his shirt looks weird, and I don’t like the yellow background. But it’s a start.
30 Drawings Challenge, 23: Something in front of me.
This prompt just didn’t inspire me, but I wanted to get it over with. I only have a few more drawings to do before I’m done with this little exercise. I want to finish, but a big part of me is pissed that numbers 24-30 aren’t “Ron Artest, Ron Artest, Ron Artest, Ron Artest, Ron Artest, and Ron Artest.” Oh well.
