This is a tattooed woman with way too many necklaces. I created this sketch with colored pencils, watercolors and markers.
I always have had a fascination with monsters. Monsters allow an illustrator to use their imagination and design skills with an undiminished intensity. They can be whimsical or utterly terrifying; they have a wide range of possibilities. This sketch is one in a series I did for a friend’s project. When I was drawing this monster, I imagined it could squirt poison out of it’s eyes, kind of like the Regal Horned Lizard that squirts blood out of its eye to scare predators.
These two character sketches were drawn at a technology conference I attended for school. I used a cheap ball point pen to make the sketches. The pen was the only thing I had on me at the time. The fellow that looks a little like Santa Claus gave a presentation all about a fun software program called comic life. During the presentation he was very inanimate and never smiled. The fellow with the monkey on his back was the opposite. He was overly animated and kept saying how technology should not be considered a monkey on our backs; hence the monkey on his back.
Hi folks! This here is my first post. The drawing of the diver is from earlier this year based on an old photo from a trip to Washington DC. Using a photo of an old dive suit from the National Air and Space Museum for reference, I created the drawing with ink washes, pen and ink.
