I like to draw stuff that puts a big smile on the front of your head.
I specialize in cartoons, comics, digital art, doodles, illustration, mixed media art, pencil, sketchbook.
Today was a day to go crazy in my Moleskine and then continue it on my iPadPro. It was so much fun to just let my brain take me for a ride and was pure therapy on a day where a lot of crap was coming from many directions.
Just some random doodling in my Moleskine. It never gets old.
Summertime. Who doesn’t love crabs?
TBT. Yes, time totally rots. And posting a throw back Thursday on a Wednesday evening is my meager attempt to mess with it.
Ice Dream. There’s some strange references going on in this one. If I don’t explain it won’t come together. Back in my day the Europe 72 3 record Dead live album had a crazy kid on the back cover smashing a cone on his head. Later an ice cream truck company called Weaser ripped off that art and would visit my mid Jersey neighborhood daily. Google it if you care. Flash forward to 2019. The ice cream truck that hits my neighborhood EVERY DAYS has a loud obnoxious song and no Greatful Dead connections. It drives me out of my mind so here is the result. I always try to turn my pain into gain. What a long strange explanation it’s been.
Morning sketch. So I was waiting for a go ahead on a 20 illo project. One of the illustrations in the project is a pair of “Chucks” so in the meantime I did a much crazier than they will be wanting version. Sometimes you just have to please yourself without all the boundaries.
The Toast of the Town. Too bad the weather had to turn just when things were heating up.
This was done on a heavy day. On days like this, I like to doodle whatever is inside my head to lighten things up. My therapy. Almost everything in here means something.
Sandy is a dreamer. Her favorite dream is the beach. Doodling on iPadPro with Procreate.
There are some things I’m so grateful for in 2018 and then there was a lot of stuff that I would love to go away. So this is my farewell art. There’s nothing random in this doodle but I’ll keep most of it to myself. Let’s hope for a way better 19.
Grungy doodle of the day. I felt inspired to do something smudgy and decorative and colorful.
Here's a floppy disk I recently painted. I love bringing old, discarded and forgotten stuff back to life.
Some crazy Moleskine doodles for the day. I haven’t been doing enough of these and really need to kick my butt harder. Not sure why because it’s so dang enjoyable.
Man, I’ve been random lately. I think my mind’s eye sees stuff that normal people don’t. That might make me abnormal. I’m kinda comfortable with that. Guess who’s going to be watching some Clint Eastwood tonight?
Stream of consciousness drawing and doodling is always therapeutic. I love starting down a trail and not knowing where I will end up.
Doodles and notes I started at a regional NJ chapter of SCBWI conference this past weekend. Then just kept adding stuff to the page this week. I learned a lot and met some great people. Looking forward to June!
To do list. I usually hate them but this one was kind of fun.
"What's the Buzz"?
Bringing old, discarded and forgotten stuff back to life!
Custom Vans Sk8-Hi sneakers Vincent Michael Gallery "Sneaker Show" in Philadelphia. (note: gallery since closed down)
The new Hasselblads are so dang out of my range! I can't even swing a used one. This is the first time using the oil brush in @procreate on a final illustration. I have to admit i didn’t want it to end.
Mixed media. Acrylic, pencil, digital. This is a piece from the book “Mail Me Art - Medium Without A Message” by @littlechimpsociety. I think it was the second call for entries/book.There are now 4 books filled with awesome art drawn and painted on outsides of envelopes and packages by artists all over the world who then mailed them to the UK totally exposed to the postal service. The original was all analog. I brought this into Procreate and reworked it. I may do more when I get a chance but I’m pretty satisfied with it now.
