Here a few ink drawings I've done over the last few months.
I've been heavily influenced by several artists lately, mainly Franklin Booth, Audrey Beardsley and Joseph Clement Coll. I really recommend all three of them. I'm still learning and plan on doing plenty of studies from the three of them.
Anyways, thanks for looking. Oh, and let me know if I should make the first one smaller, if it's to crazy large or what such.

chriskot- thanks man. Each of them takes an average of a week or so, depending on how focused I am.
Bigpapraels- the bottom two are 10x16 canvas's and the top one is about the same size. I tried not to impose any actually representation in the top one, so it can hopefully be seen in different ways.
thanks for sharing the link, special K. Folks, this stuff looks awesome... 'specially in person with the HHHimself. I tend to like the ones that are more subjective and less abstract, but they're all really great, and highly detailed. the study / observation of Coll and others is helping ya out bigtime kenneth... keep GO ing, keep GOing
Underneath it all the mexican grime, a bright aqua blue layer from time immemorial
special K>>> gotta hand it to ya that that's a really solid likeness. definitely i think you did a great job too at getting these from 65Lb sketchbook paper into the whole jpg format. boxes straight. levels adjusted. it's a hassle kind of to have good scan-craftsmanship, but worth the effort i'd contend. cheers on the progress man... can't wait for the big show down in macon! take 2 on big prints at some point this week.
i really enjoy what you are doing with the ink and ink wash. do you have a certain process that you approach each work with? Also, with some of the more recent posts, are/were you creating a comic of some sort?
Jigglesmanure- Thanks dudlez. I appreciate the prints.
th-E- Most of my drawings I set up loosely based of photos of mine in pencils, and I use rapidiographs for all the inking. I love me some of them. And yes the last ones are all from a graphics novel I've been working on for awhile.
special K>>> i sent you a txt about this, but yeah, i got your 5' x 7' drawing printed out. had to do a little expirementation / format jamming but yeah it looks awesome. see ya soon hopefully (boozer doodle is tuesday, and beyond that probably gonna get the greasy sunday majesty started up again pretty soon), i hope all the art and other projects are going well. tell tha SCAD-ATL-ites i says "Huzzah."
Still enjoyin' the diversity of ink approaches and that supersize drawing is superbadass but $120 seems a bit low for something that inkredibly intense - a big ass visual field of penmanship. How large is the drawing? How long did it take?
I've been working recently in painting with inks and gouaches. I'm still concentrating on mark making, and these are just studies I've been working on. I've also been handing these out to people I meet, at work or at a restaurant or anything.
