Music Monday: Radiohead

Why heavens Andy, why does that young lass have a head shaped of a radio. Well I'm glad you asked because today's piece comes from Radiohead. Been blasting In Rainbows as I art away and as a warm up, I jammed out this lady in my art memory book. Sadly some colors washed away in the scan, oh well.

Drac & Lilly

Dropping in for a couple of quick notes, been talking a bit about working on things that I can't really announce due to contractual obligations but one thing that I can mention is the long awaited Monster/Ladies collaboration art book David Olivarez Jr. and I are working on. We are fully driven to accomplish this book this year and are about half way through it. The love tale book will see the light of day at this years Frank N'Con. The image above is at stage two, capturing O' Drac and Lilly just loving each others company. Romance is Grand.

On a side bar, I want to thank everyone that came out to support the Art Social show last night, the super rad folks at Monsterland Tattoos and Sun City Tattoos for letting me play in a palette filled with talent and Lindy of Cat As Trophy fame for lending a hand in my participation.

Above is a pic of the progression and finished version of a piece I created for the "Art Social" art show I'll be a part off this Saturday. Mainly used inks to give this ghostly lady some life. I wish I could say that I was in this place of blah and I reached to the darkest area of more blah to blast out the emotions of more blah blah but really I wanted to do a red piece. Nothing more, nothing less. Just a ghostly gal fashioning her mask in her red dress. Simple, right?

Music Monday: 99 Luft (red) Ballons

This weeks addition to Music Monday comes from the very contagious 99 luftballoons track made worldly popular by Nena. Although as anybody that knows me would tell you, I have a very low tolerance for balloons so it is odd that I have such a gravitational pull to this song. Hey its catchy and I dare anyone to say that they don't even hum along to it as it fills their background sound. Oh and yes there are 99 red balloons in this image.

Itching to get my hands on Erica Ambis's character for quite some time now. Hope I did it justice. Want to see what it looks like with a dab of glitter, click over to the facebook page and SMILE!

Music Mondays: The Distillers

So this weeks suggestion came from my ghettoblaster, which I may say has a soft spot for The Distillers. One thing I've learned from the past is not to challenge the blaster and with the setting at random it demanded it! The piece was inspired by the band's front lady Brody Dalle, who I'll say has the looks to charm and the attitude to boot. She could easily be the official poster child for GRRL Power. So with a stroke of some bold red and some influential pink, we have this weeks submission to Music Monday. Viva La Punk!

Music Mondays: Gorillaz

Music Mondays. What??! Yes, in an effort to post more and create more I decided to have a theme for Mondays in which I will create something that was inspired, linked to, influenced or anything by music. Might just have the music in the background and the piece flows or maybe a piece to tribute a band/artist that influenced me at the time. Possibilities are endless.

This week I went with the Gorillaz for no other than it feels good. Always liked the character portrayals of the band and the music is one end to the other from album to album and even song to song. In relation to what I am going to try to achieve with the "Music Mondays", I too will try and go from one extreme to another. Have a suggestion for Music Mondays? Head on over to the fan page @ Facebook and drop the suggestion. You never know, it might just make sense that week.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

Out with the '10 and on to the '11, here is hoping that everyone has a good one! As many do, I've made a few resolutions this year and one of them was to create more art. It may have not seemed that way because I didn't post enough, but the reasons were combination's of both busy on deadlines or creating things that I could not speak about until its release date. All in all it was a good year and I got to meet a ton a rad folks. Will try to share more this year! WORD!

While out on location I snagged a couple of Prisma's, a Sharpie & random ink pens and jammed the New Years Jack on my poor dusty & neglected sketch book. What other way can we have fun this holiday season then with the Pumpkin King!
