Setting Up Shop

Things are taking shape in the cavernous room we have deemed “The Studio”.  In addition to the other work desks, Jake and I adopted a nice behemoth of a work table.  Moving it was like carrying a Dodge Neon up a couple long sets of stairs.  I hope the table likes its new home, cause there is no way we are moving it again.

Not much drawing in this neck of the woods.  Lately my thoughts have been filled with infused liquor recipes and tiny finger sammies for an upcoming home celebration.  No need to fret though – doodling shall commence soon.

Sketchbook: April Drink & Draw

At yesterday’s Drink & Draw, I made my drawings with pencil, then added watercolor this afternoon.  Click on the images to enlarge them to their full-size glory.

If you missed the event, no worries dudes – gift packs are still available, and we’ll bring them to next month’s Drink & Draw.  Hopefully by that time we will be able to sit in the semi-warmth of that glowing ball they call “The Sun”.

We have yet to make the big move, but Jake and I have been steadily dragging things over to the new place.  Check out the studio, it’s redonkulously big!!

It’s all in shambles now, but we are looking forward to making this a full-fledged drawing-and-design factory.

Til next time!

Storefrontin’

Jake and I are excited to announce that we are opening a print shop for our collaboration work, Eagle & Wolf.  Soon you’ll be able to purchase awesomely affordable museum-quality prints!  GAHHHH!  And the world rejoiced.

The first available print will be our collaboration piece, Bukowski.  AND, as a specially-special holiday offer, we will be framing one fine print with the original drawing.  Buddies!  What a great idea for a present!  Arty stuff!

Pricing and availability details coming soon, friends.

Speaking of prints, you may recall my announcement to produce prints of some of my larger drawings.  This was a total bust, left on the side of the road for dead.  After some poking around, I found it very difficult to find a printer that I could trust to not only scan my giant drawings, but also reproduce them at a high quality.  It’s a tough combo.

If anyone has any suggestions, I’d love to hear em.

When I’m not “working” (making people drunk), I’m working.  Usually, Jake & I are back to back in the studio.  Right now, I’m still working on the drawings for my upcoming solo show.  Framing should be finished soon.  More on that process later.

Back to scribbling.

 

 

 

Studio Life

Lately it seems when I’m not working my job, I’m working in the studio.  Yesterday was no exception.

I spent a great deal of time vamping up my portfolio site, adding new content and polishing it up a bit.

The great thing about living with another artist is that when I’m in the studio, chances are, Jake is too.  As we work we can bounce ideas off each other, and I don’t have to feel guilty about sitting at my desk drawing for hours on end.

Yesterday evening I spent an hour on a quick and really fun drawing.

I wanted to experiment with perspective, color, and my new acrylics.  I stuck with my old stand-bys of charcoal, watercolor, and ink by blending it all together.

A step away from the dark and slightly morose drawings I usually make, this bright drawing was a nice venture into new territory.
