    Drawings from various projects (new at bottom of thread)

    Lately, I only posted on Internet forums when I wanted to pick up some freelance work...it's been a while since I came around for social reasons. Kind of weird, that; I used to post on forums all the time. Guess I was busy, or something. Anyway, I don't have anything interesting to say, so here are some pictures:

    ...some guy said this toad looks like Jabba the Hutt; I looked him up on Google. Ha, ha; he does.

    ...man, I hate using colours.

    Some goofy sketch I drew one day when I was feeling under the weather:

    Yeah, that's probably enough, eh? Some of them I already posted on DA, and stuff, but a couple were just posted here. Most of them are from a book about how to draw, or from "The Wind in the Willows," I think, drawn in the last 18 months or so. I wanted to post more newer stuff, but have NDAs on my head.

    Does anyone else live in Vancouver, by the way? I used to know a few illustrators from this area, but fell out of touch. Just curious; I won't stalk you if you admit to living here. ;-)

    I really like these. while your take on Toad is a particular fave, all the drawings have a great classical/decadent look to them. I see a little bit of Harry Clarke, a little bit of Edward Gorey. I'm afraid the color one does look a little too accidental, but the spontaneous wash idea I think you were going for has promise.

    More recent drawing (this one was for fun, which is rare for me; there should be more time for that):

    Nice illustrations. It's good to see traditional media out there. You hate using color? Color is a great friend that should be embraced.

    I'm not sure if this is in Vancouver but I've met many talented local artists through meetup.com We have a nice drawing & painting group that gets together a few times a month.

    bmag - No, I am not going to colour them; they are finished pen & ink illustrations, not sketches for paintings (and also, the ink is not waterproof).

    stinky 07 - Well, maybe I shouldn't say I HATE colour...I just hated doing that particular coloured piece. I suddenly got asked to put a coloured piece in an order for several dozen B&W drawings, and spending money on supplies wasn't in the budget. So I dug out some dried-up watercolours from the bottom of my closet, and rubbed them on the paper with my thumb. I felt kind of bad about that, and wasn't overjoyed with the result. Colour itself is not the devil; I just get the feeling of self-loathing from doing sloppy work. (Though, I do prefer to work in B&W--that was why I didn't have any fresher supplies for colouring on hand, or a paintbrush.) Hmm, maybe I shouldn't admit to doing such a thing, in public.... Oh, well. I did. Ha, ha.
