Lazy Bonez

The Sketchaholic theme was "Lazy Bones". These two just wasted away playing their NES.

practicing with tom waits

Tom Waits, blue col-erase pencil

A picture of Tom Waits I drew in my sketchbook using a photo reference I grabbed online, just practicing my portrait drawing.

Listen to a couple sad Tom Waits songs I've been playing the past few days after the jump, they both have sort of a blue feeling/theme which is fitting...

can I keep it?

"Can I Keep It?", Mixed Media, 2010

The Sketchaholic theme this week is "The Family Dog".

Your post-apocalypse/dog themed song after the jump.

the girl from south tacoma way

Music is a huge influence on the stuff I make. I post a lot of hip hop on here, and know a lot about it as well but I listen to all genres. Last night while practicing my portraiture drawing I was listening to Neko Case, who I think is one of the best female vocalists of the past while. I was trying to pick my next subject to practice my portrait drawing on "so why not draw Ms. Case" I thought. So here she is....

The Girl From South Tacoma Way, mixed media, 2010

I referenced a press photo for her. The wispy fox things are inspired by her album title "Fox Confessor Brings The Flood", one of the great albums of the 2000's in my opinion.

Continue reading to hear the new Jay-Z song. Just kidding! Two of my favorite Neko Case songs after the jump.
