HELLO, HOW ARE YOU?
This is part of a book proposal I’ve been noodling with for a while now, this particular bit being inspired by something I wrote last year about drawing horses and how nothing bad happens when you make a bad drawing. Nobody will die if your horse drawing looks stupid. The worst thing that happens is you get a little better at drawing horses. Just put your fun hat on and draw that dang horse or motorcycle or whatever it is you’re afraid to draw.

I hadn’t been to a life drawing session in a long time, so a friend and I recently decided to try to get into the habit of doing that regularly. These were all drawn from life, directly in ink. I love having fun with the ink, embracing the mistakes, intentionally stretching things out and squishing them.
I should note to the young artists reading this that I only got to a point where I felt like I could REALLY let loose and confidently play around with the human form after seven or eight years of drawing live models almost every week (or several times a week when I was in college). I don’t claim to be a master or anything, but every art teacher on Planet Earth will tell you that you can only break the rules once you’ve actually learned how to follow them. Or something like that.
Whatever, just draw stuff and have fun. But it’s good to build a strong foundation for yourself too! And that can only happen through years of hard work.

Here’s a little video from the 90’s Nickelodeon show I was in recently at the iam8bit gallery in LA. I was there, somewhere. My painting is the last thing they show in the video, right around 4:16.

Hello friends, I’ve uploaded a new little comic for you to look at right over here. This is just one of many comics that will be in my book, CRYING IN FRONT OF YOUR DOG AND OTHER STORIES, which was sent to the printer last week.
Thanks, I love you.
