I've been battling a cold all week. I can't draw for squat when I'm sick. I'm a big fat baby like that. Instead I colored some drawings in one of my sketch books with acrylics. I've been meaning to do this for a while. My kid really like watching the old Charlie Brown cartoon specials. The backgrounds for those are really textured and painterly. I think I've had enough Photo Shop flat coloring for a while.
So, I should really use a better camera to photograph my art if I do more of this kind of hand colored work. I probably won't get to do either for a while.

Hey, Occultist is going on the road pretty soon. So you should do yourself a favor and get to the show on time and check them out. They are for the most part and D-beat punk/metal band. It's got nice mix of blacken darkness, a hint of sludge doom and crust punk influences. They used the term inverted crossover on a t-shirt and I think that best describes the sound.
I did this flier a while ago for this show.
This one below is almost unwatchable but there are so may bad-ass Tonka tough riff in the damn song I just couldn't leave it out. Of course it's also not on the demo either, so your welcome.
Check Occultist out on Band Camp!

Man, how long ago did I start working on Tiger Boss, again? UGH! Well, here are some new drawings, finally. There are even a few other that didn't get finished and(or) scanned yet. Like always Eric Miller did the pencil and I traced 'em with ink. So, you have more Tiger Boss adventures to look forward to, lucky ducks.
Always remember, You are Tiger Boss!

Anvil played in Richmond last week. I did the flier for the show that you can check out, a few posts back. Here is my lazy review of the highlight and events.
The guy who sings for Dragon Ship is the new (a few years now) guitar player for Battlemaster. He's quite good.
Volture was really good. Nick Poulos, one of the guitarist cut off his dreadlocks.
Anvil is a better live band than most of the hot snot album of the year groups playing today.
...and that was the show.
O.K. here are some space ships.

I got home last night form band practice and immediately sat down and stippled in this new environment for Mr. Skull. Most of my drawings have a real weak spot for background design. Normally I just draw a black boarder around whatever is in the drawing and call it a day. From now on I'm going to stop being a lazy bum with composition and think of better background/foreground relationship.
Yeah, how many times do I make these dumb declarations?
Man, I really hope the band likes this....

I got a message from one of the dudes in Blasthrash asking for artwork. Blasthrash is a killer Brazilian speed metal group. I think very highly of them and it was a real thrill to have them want some of my artwork. I did this pencil drawing that very night.
A day or two later I sat down to ink the bastard. I had a bunch of coffee and really went over board of the stippling. It turned a drawing that I could have finished in a couple of hours into a drawing that took me many, many, many hours.
