A long time ago, in a teenage bedroom far,far away, I would spend hours upon hours drawing an imaginative rock n' roll group I came up with. Each member of the band was essentially a knock off of an already existing rock star. I had my lead singer-who was a cross between Paul Stanley,Alice Cooper,David Lee Roth & Freddie Mercury. A guitarist that was a leather clad version of Ted Nugent. A female member that was a disco version of Ann Wilson from Heart. Another guitarist(who played more of the classical guitar stuff) that looked like Punky Meadows from Angel, and another Angel influenced keyboardist that looked like a cross between Greg Guiffria & Todd Rundgren. There was also a bass player that was basically Phil Lynott in a clown suit, with a dash of Rick Nielsen from Cheap Trick,and on and on and on. I literally drew thousands and thousands of drawings of them, I even made up fake record covers, stage plans, fake interviews, posters etc. That went on until the time I actually had a band, and even then, and after it all, I still resurrect some of the characters and place them in new stories-Here's just a few of those drawings I did as a teenager----

So, I decided to update one of the characters,the PhIl Lynott clown dressed bass player, to what he would look like now-as a 50-Something washed up bassist.

Which led to a few quicky sketches of old glam rockers. I call them The Glam Rawk Grandpas. Pass the gold lame depends!!

Last Sunday was another fun Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School session in Anaheim. Not sure if I'll be able to make it to the next one,I'll be in Vegas for a few days. But here's what sketchies I came up with from last Sundays. Enjoy!

Some recent color works-

I took an old sketch I did of The Cat In The Hat and colored him up in Photoshop. He looks extra irritated that way!

Another update of an older drawing,colored up in Photoshop for extra effect!

A drawing I initially did in colored pencils,but wanted it to appear a little more "fuzzy" for maximum creepiness. So, into Photoshop it went!

I had some left over paint from another painting I'm working on,so instead of letting it go to waste I did up a quicky Shadowgirl with it.

And colored up a quick pen sketch of some random woman.

There's ya go!

I always enjoy seeing the creative processes of others,so I thought I'd share some of mine. In this case, I'm working out ideas and concepts for an original character I have called THE CRITTERWITCH. The story and the character is still being fleshed out. Not only does this character go through changes visually, but also her story changes dramatically from the beginning to the end. It's not only a horror story, but almost takes on a dark fairy tale kind of twist. It's sad,creepy,violent and also whimsical.
Eventually, I want it to be fully developed before I take on the final version,which I hope to self publish as a one shot comic book. I have a long way to go with it yet, but I wanted to share some of the sketches and workings out of the character. Also, it was the subject of my final piece for a horror comic correspondence course I've been taking. This is not, by far, the final version of the story, but just the beginnings of a fun venture I hope to bring to fruition eventually. So join me on this creative process,won't you?

Much more to come as it develops!
