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.
I found her somewhere in the depths of San Bernardino. She caught the corner of my eye. With a look like that she quickly became the focus. What struck me as odd aside from the obvious, were these neon green rolling papers she slings out. Naturally, I thought she was getting ready to inhale the devil’s grass. That was until I seen her crouch down to pick up three smashed cigarette butts from the front of the liquor store where I was picking up my daily amenities.
She tore out what little tobacco was left in those lipstick stained butts, stuffed them into her papers and rolled ’em up. It was gross, unsanitary, yet resourceful and mildly romantic.
I asked how she was doing. “I’m smoking butts, how the fuck you think I’m doing?” I apologized. “Sorry, I asked too early. I’ll ask again after the first drag” She broke character and smiled a very short smile.
Being the gentleman I am, I lit her makeshift cancer stick with Irma, my lucky torch.
“What’s your name? I’m Dave” I say reaching out my claw. Staying in character she smiles a wide smile “Fuck off”
She walks off into the setting sun like a fading sunburned polaroid. The biggest kick I get is only knowing her as Fuck Off.
I suppose it’s time to crawl out of my cave and start setting up at shows and conventions. Collecting some last bits of products and promotion materials then I’m waving this 8 ft banner up to declare my presence. Allen did a great job coloring this CMYK blast to the face!
Posting a few things from my art folder folder up on Ebay this week. These are smaller drawings I create when I’m working on bigger projects. These drawings contain all the anger, frustration and shame I have to vent in order to keep a level head pushing through the difficult jobs. These appear to be drawings, but I assure you these pieces have a spark of energy in them, mostly negative though. Not a good sales pitch, but the honest truth. Haunting memories I am more than happy to unload.
Here are a few of the 21 items.
Thanks for looking!
