Lizard Wings: Sketchbook Friday




Today's sketch is another collaboration with Ken Hodgkins. This particular drawing was a simple drawing we both added to in about 5 minutes. I really enjoy the fast creation. Watercolor and pen were used.

Rainbow Cats Do Not Pass Go: Sketchbook Friday




Today's sketch is another collaboration with Ken Hodgkins and this time Liam Bechen and Michael Freely were involved too. This particular drawing went through a few weeks of transformations and slight edits before ending up in with the cat narrative. In fact, when I got this for the final additions I stared at it for a while until the cat materialized. Multiple mediums were used to create this high energy piece. Most of the birght colors were done with watercolors but marker, pen and color pencil was also used to create some of the under layers.

Puffy Smoke: Sketchbook Friday




Drawn on a page of notes comes this week's Sketchbook Friday entry. You can see some inspirations for my PBL ROBOT card game as I tried to invent some cool looking robot armor. I enjoy the warthog looking creature at the bottom. I think he would be fun to chase around. You can also see some odd designs and a few big vessel headed characters at the top. A series of random things my head invents in meetings. See you next week!

Seductive Teddy: Sketchbook Friday



Teddy bear like to dress up in other teddy bears. Teddy Bears like to pose in provocative ways to attract new friends to hug and hold them. I drew it, so that you could see what I mean. Thanks for checking out my sketchbook Friday post!

Star Face: Sketchbook Friday




Today's sketch is another collaboration with Ken Hodgkins. This particular drawing went through a few weeks of transformations and slight edits before ending up in the bright star face composition. Multiple mediums were used to create this high energy piece. Most of the birght colors were done with oil pastels but marker, pen and color pencil was also used to create some of the under layers.

Gender's Game by Orson Scott Card: Sketchbook Friday



This week's sketch was inspired by a band called Speaker for the Dead which is a Big Queer and Allied Brasspunk Clusterfolk! The name of the band was inspired partially by Orson Scott Card's Ender's Game sci-fi novels. Specifically a sequel called Speaker for the Dead.



The purposely ironic thing about naming a queer band after an Orson Scott Card book, is that the author Orson Scott Card himself is openly a homophobic person, you can read about it on-line if you are interested, here is an article to get you started (http://www.salon.com/2013/05/07/sci_fi_icon_orson_scott_card_hates_fan_fiction_the_homosexual_agenda_partner/). Meanwhile, Orson Scott Card's science fiction books are quite good and have been some of my favorite books growing up and I personally was surprised to hear Card's opposition to homosexuals and it did put a sour taste on some of my favorite books. I got to talk with Speaker for the Dead's (the band) lead singer Greg McKillop about this and it made me think about a changing the name of Orson Scott Card's most popular book (and my favorite) Ender's Game to Gender's Game. I thought this was clever.

Speaker for the Dead (the band) is an inspiring group (sometimes over 15 performers at a time) of artists, performers, musicians who always put on an incredible show and worth spreading the word about! Greg McKillop is incredible on vocals, writing songs and playing music. Usually their performances meander with great energy into the streets or take over the alleys, sidewalks and parking lots surrounding the initial venue and it seems like the crowd ends up in the band by the end of the show. The energy is palpable. It should be noted that I have actually never been to one of their shows, but I have heard epic stories first hand and also watched videos and seen pictures. The music and lyrics themselves are also incredible:

Speaker for the Dead available on Bandcamp



All this information and I almost forgot this was a Sketchbook Friday post. I almost forgot to mention Googy Logan. He's quite a character. The breast feeding Sitar player was an early sketch for a modern god of creativity Saraswati. A project that is still in the works. If you look closely you can find Ryback the WWE wrestler in there and an ankle injury being blamed on god. The sketch page was also a vehicle for me to try out some unusual action poses too. But, really, if you are to take anything away from today's post, I think you should go check out Speaker for the Dead (the band).
