The culmination of beers, metal, and some wicked new headphones.

On it

Thank you Simms for these great gloves so I can draw a permit in my freezing basement

I was planning on doing some drawing today, but it kcked into higher gear when I saw this.

I’m a fan of Surly.  I know those guys.  I’ve been pining to pen some bottle/can art for them for the last 2,000 years.  I now have my chance. I make no assumptions, just going to put my work out there and see if it gets in where it fits in.

So, a couple sketches this morning, a nod to the old Creator/Destroyer in the basement, and finishing off a Permit drawing while rocking my Simms gloves.

God damn.  Making art is awesome.

Have a good one amigos!

The second finished piece in the Necromancer series goes out to Pile Cast – a wicked cool fly fishing blog by a wicked cool guy.   I’ve received a good deal of support from him, so in a way, this drawing is a way to say “thanks”.

At large, there is an underlying theme to the Necromancer series developing; I could pick any subject, personal or unknown, to base these images on.  So far, I’ve chosen to pick people/subjects that have had an influence on my life as a fly fisherman.  I think that personal connection helps drive these pieces, it helps generate motivation and inspiration. 

I also pick scenes that say “Heavy Metal” while they say “Fly Fishing” – I mean, why the hell would I draw anything else right?

Horns up.

 

 

Friday nights

Deadlines at work, a lot of unfinished drawings, and the to-do list never ends – I feel bloated.  Need to get some of these projects d.o.n.e.

All in good time.

It’s Friday night, and this husband and father just came off a 50 hour work week.  Not complaining, just relishing a Friday night in the basement with my drawings and what-nots.

Drinking some German Craft Beer, and some of that new shizz from my peeps at Summit.  Strollin’ down memory lane, appreciating those good times.

Hope you’ve got a cold one and feeling of accomplishment tonight.  Cheers amigos.
