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.
Siena 1949: E`Acceso!
Originally created as a guide to the city Siena printed in Italian 1949.
I’ve taken it upon myself to draw over the pages and re-title it as my new drawing project!
This series will follow my previous line travel drawing project “Broken Storybook” which has enough content to for a two issue mini book (as of now)
I’m going to share a little piece of city trivia of Siena with each post of the project.
But first, the drawing!
The city is universally known for its immense historical, artistic, landscaping heritage and its substantial stylistic unity of medieval urban furnishings as well as the famous Palio .
In 1995 its historic center was incorporated by UNESCO into the WorldHeritage Site .
The city is home to the Banca Monte dei Paschi di Siena , founded in 1472and therefore the oldest bank in activity as well as the longest in the world.
Oh, and a Chewbacca sketch cover!
Thanks for reading!
Been a while since I drew a blank cover. What better way to shake the cobwebs off than with Hawkeye as an old man?!
I also had a badly damaged LOW comic published by image comics. I seen a couple of empty pages with really cool colors on them, So….I torn them out and had the great idea to draw on them one day (horder style).
Cleaning up other loose ideas I had. I have to throw out things weekly. Things I thought were great ideas but didn’t get around to. I do this to avoid too much clutter. Sometimes I think I have a great idea. If I don’t begin them within two weeks, most likely it was not that good of an idea.
I didn’t do them for any reason than to draw on something different. I have them for sale. I do very little to promote my small shop, but at least things are up for sale. Here is the link (zarstar studios store)
I have been known to be a little over dramatic about my feelings. This is case in point. Heavy thoughts yo. Once the chemicals balance out I can see how silly things are. Yet at the time it seems so fucking dire. This is one of my few attempts of these over embellished thought. It’s a slow building theme. It’s hurt a lot making it, which kinda makes me smile. I can be so full of shit sometimes.
My little buddy Zeke sends draw requests from time to time. Always fan art requests of pop culture characters. It drives me crazy finding reference and drawing accurate. So much I asked him to only drawing things he imagines (hoping to deter the requests)
Not so much the case. He imagined some things. Two teams to be exact. I don’t know the story or origins. He refused to tell me incase I thought to steal his idea. Kidding, he just didn’t tell me. I know for sure he has already thought it out.
Anywho, here is 9 year old Zeke character concept of the Zen-X Disease
Here is my interpretation of the team
This is the other team called the Infection
This is my interpretation
It was pretty fun using the loose reference to illustrate.
Next week I’ll talk coasters, SKA, beer and bars!
At the time feel
New Alien Baby submissions based on my current skewed ideals. Just adding to the pot.
Dryspell from my current “Team Justice” Sketchbook
A shy goblin from my current sketchbook “Team Justice”
The last two are newly inked sketchbook entries. These two were penciled loosely a few months ago,. decided to ink them with ball point pen. Done in a sketch book titled Team Justice. Every sketchbook I use has a name. Some for reasons, some for no reason. I’ll go more into the sketchbook on another post.
Some ink I did over Dan’s original pe
Dan’s Original pencils work on an old torn out page from a book
I can’t remember exactly when I met Dan to be honest. I think it was in 2007. I really dug his work and asked if he had a sketchbook I could purchase. He said he didn’t. I offered to make one for him. At the time I was steady making zines and sketchbooks of my own. He took me up on the offer. I gathered some images he had on line. Sent two copies out to him along with the file. I asked if he would signed one of the copies and send it out to me. He did and included the pencil sketch above.
It wasn’t until recently I had the nerve to try and ink it.
Dan has been real supportive with some of my creative ideas. Maniac Cop being one. That project is a little bit of a long story to go into right now though.
He has also helped with a horror project I shelved before I began my SHE project. The plan is to later bring it into SHE.
I really appreciate Dan’s help and encouragement. So much I thought to post it. To whom ever reads this, check out his work. It really is amazing!
