Old HB makes a great subject

Got home and spent the last working hour of my day drawing Humphrey Bogart. They don't all look like him and you don't get to see all of em, but these are the least terrible. Tonight I plan to enjoy The Big Sleep in honor of my self indulgence. I mean the movie, not that I'm going to die after this post.

New Flightless Buttress album!

I had the privilege of drawing the album cover for the Flightless Buttress album, Balances. It comes out on April first and you can get it online through their website HERE. This is their debut album and it promises to be amazing.

This is the original drawing that had a statue as well. I really like the statues face but it didn't work as a whole.

Flightless Buttress have also printed up some t-shirts featuring some of my work for their release party this Friday in Chinatown (Boston). If you are interested in purchasing one or attending the party, both of which would indicate that you are indeed a sane human being, you will find an address and contact info HERE.

A drawing in Tel Aviv

On my last day in Israel I had a few hours free at my wife's Aunt and Uncles place (my...Aunt and Uncle once removed?) in Tel Aviv. They had a beautiful apartment that overlooked a park. My own apartment doesn't have a porch but I took advantage of theirs.

William Kentridge

I drew this on the plane coming back from Israel yesterday. We had gone to the Jerusalem Museum and seen an exhibition of William Kentridge's work that was really amazing. One piece in particular, from the film "Monument", really struck me and I couldn't help playing with the composition a little. I can't wait to make a big one.

This is the Kentridge drawing I was thinking of.

I like his better.

Still stuck on vacation

Having just moved to LA, nice weather in the winter is still a real novelty. In the future I will long for cold I'm sure. Until then, I get to wear my jacket and freeze only in my imagination. Or on paper. Or if I went into a walk in freezer, that would work too.
