Quick practice on color/texture stuff. Drawing cars typically doesn’t make sense to me, but I still went for it here. Granted it is only a small glimpse but it’ll do. I kind of went overboard on some of these textures, and the coloring is not something you would normally see from me. Regardless I think where this ended up was a test worthwhile. Mainly trying to keep myself drawing one thing or another over here.

Here’s that page I made up a number of months ago that has been sitting in limbo for a bit. Finally remembered to scan it in and put it up.
I’ve worked through a couple pages after this, and am thinking this page here is a standalone. The other panels are coming out in a different manner and frankly I like the new direction more.
-Also the best hand I’ve drawn. Even if that nail is a little wonky.

Might be reworking this one a bit over the next day or so. Can’t believe how long it’s been since I’ve really done anything like this. Almost like riding a bike, just need to remember where everything is. Nearly 6 months without delving into a project, but damn does it feel good even though it was a little trying. The fire reignited & burning brightly.
Feels great to stay up until 3am working with brushes and trying to figure out new techniques. As the weather continues to get better, I’ll be finding myself inside more with my cats on my lap and a brush in hand.
Oh yeah I used yellow on this, that never happens. Trying to break the standard color palette.

Half way inked, and a new scanner has been ordered. Finally getting things in order over here.
Oh yeah, the show at Now That’s Class was a blast, & I have my first home taxidermy project waiting in the freezer for me.

Here’s a flyer for the first real Hollow Eyes show. A lot of things to get ready before this. Mostly excited to dj & weird people out.

New jammer. Playing with panels & tunes lately. Feels good that everything is falling into place well enough. Bigger & better things always around the corner, now it’s time to take a turn towards them.

Steady work on these panels. Finally got a new fully functional keyboard so my computer is finally of use to me. Things are falling into place and finally making some headway on most projects.

Hollow Eyes - Record Label
Part of these projects I’ve alluded too includes starting a very small “label” to put out my own solo tunes and friends of mine.
It will be nice to establish an identity for the project which I’ve dubbed Hollow Eyes. A secondary creative outlet if you will. Including some larger scale projects down the road. Right now with starting a new job and getting this rolling I hope to have tons of new illustration work to show on top of everything else.

I have been back in Cleveland just over a week now & have enjoyed catching up with buddies and seeing new additions to the city. Also lots of new work waiting to be scanned in and completed, which will be happening within the coming week.
This flyer is a quick exercise seeing as half my keyboard no longer works and using Photoshop is damn near impossible. Lots of new developments and projects in the works right now. All of which will be rolling out in the next few weeks.

As it goes, when I say there will be more updates and projects going full force. I find myself in a situation where all this is put on hold. This being I am now moving back to Cleveland in less than two weeks. Flying my best buddy out to the desert for a three day vacation and a triple debut show at the house. Followed by a two day/36 hour mash back to Cleveland with my brother/two cats & my junk.
Setting up shop and going to plow throw all these projects in my isolation chamber. Trying to finally find & create something that speaks what I may cryptically be broadcasting, but isn’t picked upon by anyone with a normal cranium crank.
Which brings me to this image which is a quick whip-up of a flyer for the send off of madman and the triple debut. My “apparent” music project Dancing Dust will make its first nerve-wracking appearance onto an audience.
Regardless my mind is set on making these ideas a reality, and I’m trying to put myself into a situation where it’s easier on everyone.
