Slick Vinyl Girls and Cars

I was in a small art sale this past weekend, it was fun to show some art again, and the gallery was great (thanks to 4th Street Studio, Beth and Kyla.) I tried something new, printouts of some vector-drawn pieces in a unique format. I was pleased with the results. Here's the pieces I had in the show.

Mach 1 Girl


I'm in a show this weekend, a charity art sale, so I've been busy.
Here's a sketch that ended up being involved in one of my pieces.

I plan to post some pix of the sale next week....

Santo Strikes

Ugh. Stuck in another pointless Friday meeting. I had to redeem the time somehow! So my loss is your gain:

Apple

A co-worker commented on the shiny apple sitting on my desk. We got into a conversation about the best apples and found out we both only eat Braeburns. I drew this for her to hang in her cube, or possibly tattoo on her shoulder....

Halloween Post


This one is older, I drew it quickly but I like it.
SPOOKY!!!

GI Joe week: Snake Eyes



Here he is, the Wolverine of the GI Joe universe! That is, he's overused and the mystery's gone.
I always preferred the "commando" Snakes to the "ninja" version. Commando, but with the wire-visor and the sword.

GI Joe week: Major Bludd


The mercenary poet. I know--his eyepatch is on the wrong eye, and his mechanical-armored arm should only have 2 fingers...

GI Joe week: Viper



Here's your standard Viper. If you've got a solid faceplate why do you need goggles?

GI Joe week: Roadblock


There's lots of GI Joe stuff happening, including what looks like an abysmal live-action movie. Anyway, I've been a fan since childhood, so here's a week or so of GI Joe sketches. Yeah, nerdly.
So here's an old sketch of everyone's favorite rhyming-chef heavy machine gunner. I'll bet in the movie he'll carry a minigun, cause yeah, we've never seen that in the past 20 years!

Cyborg--138


This is an old one, drew it at some sort of conference or something...

Mystery Drink Girl



There used to be a restaurant in Columbus called the Kahiki, it was an awesome Tiki Bar. While in college I would have my birthday party there. It's decor was on the same level as the Tiki Room at Disney, it put other Tiki bars to shame. You could order the "Mystery Drink" and it was delivered in a large bowl (with dry ice smoking from a volcano in the center!) They had a special waitress who delivered it to your table, she was dressed in a sarong like an island girl. Anyway, they bulldozed it to put up a Walgreens.

Wes Freed Tribute


Cecil Lone-eye. Wes is the guy who does the cover art for the Drive-by Truckers. Fantastic artist, awesome band. My drawing got some kinda grease stain on it--PERFECT!

Another ROM


I don't know why, maybe it's the great shapes or something, but here he is again, and more accurate this time.

Conan


I seem to be stuck on 70's–early 80's comic heroes...

ROM


Another classic comic hero from the 70's: ROM Spaceknight! (Turns out I don't remember how he looked as well as I'd hoped.) Haven't tried to draw chrome in awhile, either.

442 girl

Wow, it's been awhile between posts again! Thing is, I have pages and pages of sketches that I could post, it's just finding the time to do it. I've been busy! Here's a sketch of a girl that goes with a cool old car I'm drawing. I might post the final sometime.

Boxtruck Rat Rod

Hey, it's been awhile. Been working on some cool projects. Here's the latest on my Blue Sky project, it's looking good, I think! I posted two of the sketches back in April, now I'm working toward the final vector image.

Grendel

Not Beowulf's enemy, but Wagner's creation. I've read a few Grendel comics and they're usually pretty good. I'm still not sure about his left foot but I do like the left hand.

scan 34

Hey, here's a favorite of mine; must be, as I've drawn it about 50 times and I even took it to final oil painting at one point, only to return to the sketch stage when I decided it wasn't very good. Anyway, here it is again.

Dylan Art Travels Fast

Looks like my buddy Fred's Dylan website, and subsequently my artwork, got mentioned in a blog from Brazil! It's called gulag, I can't read Portuguese so I don't know what they're saying about it but it's cool all the same. It's the May 9th post.

Dylan


My friend just launched a website, a fun tutorial on how to get into Bob Dylan's music, so I drew some art for him. I think it turned out nicely. If you need artwork for your site drop me an email: bendraws@gmail.com and we can figure it out.
The link to his site is www.howtolistentodylan.com/

for comparison

Found this color drawing in my buddy's backseat while we were carpooling to work, his son drew it. I figured I'd treat the kid to my version of his vision. When I presented my drawing the kid said "huh, your monster only has two legs." Touché.

My friend and I were talking about 80's robots, the pre-anime kind. You know, R2D2, Maximillian, Hector, OLD BOB, Twiki and Dr. Theopolis, Rom Spaceknight, Speak and Spell—The list goes on and on. Anyway, this guy could use more hoses.

Robo-Cowboy final

Yeah, I know, it says "sketches" for this blog, but I took this guy to final, so I'm posting it. Mostly vector, which was great for drawing that arm, but there's a roughness to the color study/sketch that I really like that gets lost when doing the final. Anyway, here it is.
