FRIDAY ART: Bigote Brown

Friday, October 23rd, 2009

My buddy Randy Muñiz, who I’ve written about before, asked me if I wanted to make a skull for a mural project that he, and his friend James, are putting together at the Mexic-arte museum. I said, “sure” and then I drew this.

I was pleased with this drawing and proceeded to Ink it up and make it clean, but it was losing all it’s magic. I’ve mentioned before that I am a fan of pencil sketches over the finished black lined drawings. There is something so honest about pencil drawings. So, what I did was just blow up my sketch to 3 feet and painted right over the black and white copy. Here is what that looks like.

Here is a picture of my daughter standing next to Bigote Brown.

Bigote Brown will be wheatpasted on the side of the museum next to the skulls of 6 other artists. Come out to the Viva La Vida Fest, celebrating dia de los muertos, tomorrow in Downtown Austin to check it all out.

FRIDAY ART: Take that television!!

Friday, May 29th, 2009

I made this comic strip today. To make it look like I wasn’t showing you guys ANOTHER undeveloped sketch I gave it this sweet old vignette look. Did I fool ya? I may just develop this and submit it to some comic strip jury somewhere… or… I may just forget.

Make more, consume less.

Also, I’ve been pretty busy but have finished a few more sheets of letters I’ll post them when I get a chance. For now check out my buddy Ramsey’s sweet lettering here. If that’s not enough check out this sweet pinstripe lettering action by House Industries. THAT is how lettering is done. Happy Friday!!

Friday, May 22nd, 2009
