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!
I was finally able to jump back into some painting this week! I decided to keep with my classic Universal Monster theme but with a more delicate approach with the Bride of Frankenstein. I’m not crazy with the composition or color, but I will say I was able to progress on her likeness quite quickly. Here’s to some more painting and improvement this year!
Boy oh boy. Remember a year ago when I said my goal for 2017 was to get better at painting? Of course you don’t remember but I said it. I did 4 or 5 digital paintings and by March I slipped back into my comfortable style. Well I’m starting up again. One of my favorite artists has to be Basil Gogos of Famous Monsters of Filmland fame. We lost him last year, so think of this as a tribute and learning experience.
