This came from a sketch I did of the great Stacy Walker dressed as a vampire hunter. (the candelabra was made out of cardboard!) I wanted to take it to a more finished piece, sort of a Hammer Films horror poster from the 60's. Stacy battles the undead in the bowels of the catacombs.Punch those lurid colors! Thanks again, Stacy!

Here are a few from the last 3 weeks.John Tucker returns as Black Bart, but I was bored with trying to capture reality, so went to the cartoony side. I don't know why it's so hard for me to exaggerate when drawing from life. The ladies of course are NOT cartoony. Peggy Moore does her great sassy western barmaid, and Daniella did a very sophisticated Downton Abbey set. Thanks to all.

Here are a few from workshops over the last month or so, Daniella as a Mod girl, Stacy Walker as the vampire hunter, Sara figure model, and Marissa as Bettie Page.15 minutes to an hour pose on most of these.

Here are a couple sample pieces I've been working on in spare moments. We have a '60s blockbuster movie style poster, "Sword of the Valkyrie". Sword wielding vixens versus evil WW1 style robots! Also a sample for a nonexistent book, "Texas Cowgirls". Hmmm. Maybe a coffee table book!

Here are some sketches from the last 2 months or so. A torch singer, a rock and roll girl, and a bikini costume that I was never quite clear on. Doesn't matter if the poses are great, which they were. Many thanks to our great models!

Here are a couple of pieces I've been dabbing at for a while, Bride of the Vampire, and Very Cherry.Similar in presentation (reclined figure) but very different in tone. Photoshop/digital paint combos, a lot of fun to see how different I can make them.

The leader of our bi weekly drawing night here at work, Bob Kato, has a great new book out based on his main weekly workshop here in L.A., The Drawing Club. Open to all for a modest admission, Bob provides a night of fantastic character models, beautifully lit and propped out complete with themed soundtrack. Highly recommended if you're in the area. Or you can buy his book which covers a lot of info on drawing characters from life and is packed with drawings ( a few of my pieces are included, thanks Bob!) Only $19 bucks or so on Amazon,support the arts and get a great instruction book as well. Congrats Bob, I hope the book does well!

We bid a fond farewell to a great model, Tiffany Chin, as she moves on to voice-over work. Someone else will have to take on the Tank Girl character in drawing workshops. Best of luck to you!
