Archives For how to draw

First Hi to everyone that still visits my blog. I want to really focus some time on revamping and doing some new and fresh art for all my supporters. In the last few years since I have been working full time again I have kind of let things go and I have not been producing many final pieces of art. As you can see in my instagram feed I am still sketching a lot but no finished pieces. When i was producing final pieces I was traveling to hot rod shows and I always needed something fresh. Now I think it is is time to shake off the dust and get back at it. My first goal is to finish the Hot Rod Car Themed Card Deck called the Burner Deck. If you haven’t seen me working on it I am hand inking each piece for a card deck I am going to produce and all the proceeds will be going to a Charity by the name of Redeeming Love. They are an organization that helps victims from the Human Trafficking trade here in the US.  So I am very energized to get that thing launched. Then after that I have a few things I would like to do but I need to give it some thought and time to see what is next. In the mean time check out my instagram feed to see more updates just look for that link in the upper right hand corner.  Here are a couple images from the card deck project below. Talk soon

It is loosely based on an old salt flat car and the front end is narrowed dramatically. So a little bit of my technique on  Continue Reading…
