The painting below was never used for anything....

Below: Earache Records', Thrashing Like a Maniac, a new school thrash compilation. It's not great but not bad considering that I taught myself how to use PhotoShop as I worked on it. Some jerk from Terrorizer Magazine called it, "just crap", that stung a bit....

Above: demo art for Fatal, Born to Thrash.
I really wanted to draw the little baby dick.

Above: T-shirt art for Battlemaster

Look up for: record cover for No Way Records' Compilation No Bull Shit #2

The great folks who did this comp also run a amazing record store called Vinyl Conflict located in the illustrious Oragon Hill neighboorhood. If you're in Richmond, you must visit!

At 12 o'clock you will see flier art for a Municipal Waste show. I worked so hard on this, and it still ended up awful.

Above: cover art for Cannabis Corpse's Blunted at Birth. I took a day off from work to do the inks for this one. I draw too slowly...
Above: T-shirt for Homicidal Threat. I think that they broke up before they ever printed the shirt. I also think they paid me in one dollar bills and quarters.

Above: T-shirt and Cover art for River Freshney

Above: T-shirt for Final Attack

Above: This never was used for anything...

I came up with the psudonym Inkwolf, because I was hunting for a "real job" and I didn't want the Cannibis Corpse album cover to pop up in a Google search on my name. I got the idea for the name from the movie Wild Zero. It stars the Japanese rock band Guitar Wolf, whose members are Guitar Wolf, Bass Wolf, and Drum Wolf. I figured I'd be Inkwolf.

Great story, right?....

Well, how about more art next time.

A drunk friend of mine asked to see my portfolio the other night. She wanted me to design her tattoo in the way drunk people I talk to at parties often do. It gave me an idea. I figured this would be a good time to post my old wares. It will offers people who haven't seen much of my art before a better notion of the caliber of lowlife I am. It also presents me an opportunity to post lots of content because I'm not finishing drawings as fast as I was a few months ago. Enjoy!

Up, t-shirt for Raw Sewage, I think they broke up...http://www.myspace.com/rawsewage

Painting for Municipal Waste t-shirt. You can look up this band on your own.

"Who or what is INKWOLF?", you keep asking. What dose this strange name have to do with drawings, heavy metal and t-shirts? The questions begin to multiply in you head and you are unable to stop them. Is Inkwolf among us in flesh or is it an ever present conviction, a theme, that haunts the darker corners of our minds? Did Inkwolf do stuff for Cannabis Corpse? Did I drunkenly ask Inkwolf to design a tattoo for me that I never got? I will try answer those stupid questions in the next installment of Old Drawings. Thanks for playing, yal.

Street Pizza and Fan Male

Here is some more art work I did for the band Street Pizza's new album, Cancerous Planet. The drawing below is taken from a really old sketch book. I didn't have much time and we needed another image. It just goes to show that you should never throw anything out, RECYCLE!

I got this helpful e-mail from a FAN the other day. It was a reply to a quote I gave him Tuesday March 2 of last year. Better late than never or in this case much better never.

Hello, I was the guy looking for the (Zombie on a Skate board)
to be used as a tattoo. Just for a 5x5 black drawing I was thinking more like $20. That is what most designs go for if I buy them for a tattoo from various sites. (He gives me links to two sites that show artwork, thanks,) $80 seems a bit high. If you are firm on that, it is o.k. I just won't be purchasing it from you at this time.

Maybe I'm being bitchy, you know, "Don't look a gift pig in the mouth, just take it to bed and shut up..." This guy want to give me money for my art right. Yeah, just like 7-11 or something.

and now the print is really big, i wonder if it will look like this in the blog...I have no idea how that happened, really.wacky.
