Fragments

Two paintings I've banged out recently that are pieces of the puzzles I'm currently working on.

A family affair




I just took a gander at my daily inspiration stop, MeatHaus and saw that the brain trust, Chris McD, posted the doodles my whole family did in his book, Sasquatch's Big Hairy Drawing Book. Not only that but he is giving away free copies right now and it's easy to put your name in the hat by replying to this post.

I have to say that the whole family has really enjoyed working in this one. Including a little boy who is only an occasional drawer and a wife who took a little arm twisting to contribute. It's good times for all and when your done McD and Sasquatch will post your work on the flickr collective page like they did for us. Who wouldn't want that? So if you're a regular here or coming from somewhere else, go check it out. If you've found yourself here because of that post, take a look around and drop a comment if you like.


*Edit* Despite having a link to the Sasquatch flickr page and having some images in the MeatHaus link. I've been given a hard time by certain close relations of mine to post some samples here. Hope said parties are satisfied with these four.


One from my littlest one.


One from my son.


One my beautiful wife and I did together.



A single from me.

Goodbye Joe




After hearing about his passing, I realized out of all the sketches of boxers I've done that I never did one of Frazier. Remedied today.

Dignan



Another Criterion classic film.

A couple of double takes

I haven't posted any boxers in a bit so here's a couple of recent ones.

The Red Balloon


Doing some ramp up paintings to get back in the swing since I've mostly been about inks for a while now. This one kind of falls in the art envy vein. An image from the Criterion/Janus film The Red Balloon.

Just so you know...

I passed on August posting because I merely had more ink sketches to show and wanted to focus on gathering steam for something new. However, I didn't want to miss out on September entirely too. I thought about posting process photos but I never got around to it. Instead, I'll squeeze in a little tease.

That's right. It is a panel. A panel from a comic. One of the comics I've long been threatening no less. It's coming along slower than I'd like due to other obligations and probably in bigger part to my own self consciousness. Regardless, it is coming along at a pretty solid pace.

The real motivator... goodbye, Lucian

Finally, the real reason I got motivated to post. I just found out tonight that the mighty Lucian Freud passed on yesterday. I deeply admire the way he painted it like he saw it and while it may not have always been flattering to the model it was always a beautiful work. I was lucky enough to see a retrospective of his work at the Tate on my last big pre-kids vacation and it was amazing.




A quick one I sketched off the back photo from the book Man with a Blue Scarf by art critic Martin Gayford.

Now I Wanna...




A couple of the more successful sketches from a few I referenced off of I Need More .








Another fistful
