BAR CARDS! This is my personal Sketch card series. This series was created for the simple fact, that I go to bars to draw. I find it relaxing to step out of the drawing room away from continuity projects and draw whatever comes to mind. I often give the sketch cards away to people who show interest and as unwanted tips for servers.
These cards are professionally printed on with uncoated (raw) textured surface on front and UV coating on back. The sketches I take home I later ink and color. Here are the variations and process.
The print run was 500 making them recordable and limited.
I plan to post some on eBay soon. I’ll keep things posted as I go.
Thank you for reading.
I went to Cinefamily in Los Angeles California this past Friday with a friend to watch Texas Chainsaw Massacre III: The Saw Is Family. Great show! I wanted to do something fun and promote a little of what I do, so I drew this and made a few homemade trading cards.
Turns out I got a little too hasty and left the “D’ out my website.
hehe well….at least I made them and a few people took’em. The lesson? Proof read your shit and don’t rush.
Completely unrelated (as per my rambles) but here is a Curious Spaceman. I drew a prelim a few years ago. The idea stuck with me, so I decided to finish it on my Jumbo woven sheet collection. Drawn on a Circa Linen company sheet (1985) color: Lamplighter Ivory.
If you don’t get it, You are most likely a curious space person.
I was asked recently to draw a Sasquatch. Wanted to draw something a little different. This was the different. It made me smile.
I contributed to a very interesting project and process from my buddy Nathaniel Osollo at Eye Draugh.
This book is a collection of authentic vintage Photos. With a phone (Aurasma) app using your camera the monster begin to appear!
My contribution is on page 16 to the book above ^
Here is a cheat of the monsters that appear.
Please check the book!
Thanks for reading
More Broken Storybook pages! I was in a zone for a while. I think I’m winding down with these for a while. Inking the last one felt a little less fun (still fun, but less). Printing will commence soon. For now just accumulating.
Here are some images or the Scramble Jam! A local draw meet up we do monthly at Dutch’s Brewhouse in Long Beach.

Here’s how the April Scramble Jam went. Great night! looking forward to next month. There will be exclusive sketch cards printed and talks about a new art show scheduled for July!
This month’s bootleg mascot was the Koolaid Man
Some of the artists at the event
This Month’s Scramble Jam event was really good! Talked with other artists about ideas and got a different perspective on the art game. SKA Brewing company caught wind of the coaster doodles and offered a little love for the next meet up. The meeting was held at Dutch’s Brewhouse . Very happy with how chill things are. I feel as these events continue we will have to expand numbers. I do little promoting. Mostly invite friends. I think now maybe it we should promote a little more.
Also drew on a blank cover. I’m doing less of these as other projects grow and are more demanding. I still think it’s important to have fun with fan art. I do my best on confining it to these covers. Slowly working them down.
I’ll leave with some random current sketchbook draws. Thanks for reading.
