Once again I’m moving forward with ballpoint sketches with a “monster” theme (although with this addition we may just have to call it “horror”) and here’s The Shape aka Michael Myers. This classic slasher needs no introduction. I was going to work on a Dracula piece (debating about doing Lee or Lugosi) but ended up with Myers simply because I wanted to fill in a lot of shadow. With drawing, much like horror, it’s about what you don’t see that can get the point across in an even better way.
Continuing some ballpoint sketches with a monster theme (doesn’t every aspect of my entire life have a monster theme?) I conjured up the Gillman from The Creature From The Black Lagoon. Doesn’t quite have that natural look like my Frankie drawing, mostly because the Creech is just so unnatural looking. But for my first drawing of 2020, I am pleased. We only go up from here, folks! Happy New Year!
If there’s a blank page in front of me and a pen in hand, I assure you only 2 things will be drawn: A ninja turtle or a monster. That’s the way it’s been for as long as I remember. Guess what came out today? I scanned it in, touched it up a bit, and here we are. Probably my last drawing for 2019. As we march into 2020, who knows what art, opportunities, and madness it will bring. I’m looking forward to the new decade more than ever!
