I did Jake Parker’s INKtober thing with a ton of other people last month, and I had a blast. I learned a lot about myself and how I draw things. Can’t complain about that!
Here are all 32 drawings I did (I thought I was one short) in one set.
Finished this an hour or two after Labour Day for the good folks at Bike Winnipeg. That’s a pretty top-notch lineup right there!
My hat’s off to anyone that draws bikes on the regular. They’re hella hard, and I’m not afraid to admit that. I haven’t drawn one since grade school, I’m pretty sure of that.
…additional recognition goes out to Mr, Steve St. Louis, who took this photo of the Art City van, which I’m sure was in the back of my mind when I made that Grand Analog poster. Props, homie.
New poster! The Grand Analog logo is by my good homie Mark Remoquillo, by the way. Mark has handled the packaging/liner note design for all of GA’s releases, including the new one (Modern Thunder!), and that’s how I got the color scheme for it.
I was asked to do this by my man Nestor Wynrush and pretty much had to turn it around in a week. To play it safe, I decided to revisit a previous theme, and changed it to a truck for two reasons: 1) I wanted to draw one (spurred on by this dope photo), and 2) food trucks are kinda in vogue, so why not?
The reference can be found right here, and the final drawing comes directly from how I drew the original sketch. I drew the front kinda elongated, and rolled with it. It kinda looks like a food/mail truck.
LOCALS! AND ANYONE NOT DOING ANYTHING TONIGHT AT 11 P.M. CST!
Just finished a poster for the slide guitar demon known as Bob Log III. I’ve been lucky enough to see him on three occasions, and he tore the house down each time. If you’re in town that night, come on down to the Windsor! You won’t regret it, my friends.
And yes, that’s a phone receiver, which is attached to a helmet. How else is he gonna sing to you while playing the guitar, bass drum, and cymbals simultaneously?
Pictured above is my man Rob Crooks, the homie Sam Thompson, and me being goofy. Rob and Sam are the hosts of Witchpolice Radio (other host Jon Askholm was AWOL), and I was a guest! It was a blast! We played music based on the randomly-generated theme of “paranoia”, and went madly off in all directions, discussion-wise. Give it a listen!
