This drawing was for a weekly artist email challenge. The theme for the week was to pick a movie star or stars and put them into a character or movie that they were not in. I chose to place the five main members of the three stooges and place them into the movie Reservoir Dogs. I am very sad if someone does not know who the three stooges are or the movie reservoir dogs. If you are not aware of either please go to blockbuster or your library and check out some movies.
These are a couple of photos of a geisha painting that I did for my wife. It has been something that I had promised to do quite awhile ago for her. I haven't told her that I painting it and thought it would be funny to post pictures and leave clues around the house to see if she discovers it. These photos are stored on her laptop, they are also still stored in our camera, and the painting itself is in a frame underneath our bed. I also have a sketch of the painting laying on one of the art tables in our basement. The painting is 24 x 36 and is acrylic and ink on a thick paper that was given to me by a friend.
This is a drawing for a weekly artist email challenge. The topic was to do a drawing of a favorite artist or musician. I chose Screamin Jay Hawkins. He was a blues musician from the 50's to the 90's who was known for his humorous songs and wild stage show. I had wanted to do a picture of him a long time ago for a class project, but just ended up not choosing him as the subject. So I guess it was a long time overdue. If you have not heard of him before google for more information or go to youtube and check out some videos that are currently up.
I'm getting a little carried away, but its been awhile since posting so I need to get back in the habit. These are pics of a big ass painting that I did. It is around 6 feet long and about 4 feet high. It was hung in a gallery for a Final Friday thing that goes on in Cincinnati at the end of each month. Funny story. Some dude was all about it and wanted to buy it. I had already left but my wife was still there. He kept talking about it but didn't want to pay how much I asked for it. My wife didn't think to at least call me and ask if I wanted to sell it cheaper. So if you see that guy or you are the guy, call me I still have it.
Some nazi sketches done leaing up to doing my comic Comatose. A pinup done for another comic called Zombie Monkey Planet. A drawing I did for a porno book that I did as a joke to piss off the above mentioned artist of Zombie Monkey Planet, I think it worked.
It's been ahwile since I've posted on here so I thought that I'd go ahead and do it. This is an Abe Lincoln drawing that I did for a weekly email string. There is a group of artists in a group email and each week a new subject is drawn. It's been going on for several weeks now and has been a good way to try and keep working on art. I have been fairly busy lately taking graduate classes, so it has been hard to find time to do artwork. If any artist is interested in gettin in on the email string just send a message, the more the merrier.
Here are some more pages from my book without the dialogue and sound effects. They are some of the black and white pages from the section where the main character battles Nazi's within his own dream. I guess i need to explain a little about the process that went into this book being made. I did a group 24 hour comic jam were a group of artists came up with an idea for a story and created the comic within a 24 hour time period. Much like 24 comic day, but altered a little bit to see what would happen when multiple artists were drawing on the same page and within the same panels. I had inked over one artists drawings and found that you just couldn't duplicate his line quality when you inked over his pencil drawings. So i decided with this book, i would cut out the process of pencinling onto the pages and just ink staright onto the pages. So i roughed out the panels on a seperate page and planned everything out, then inked the pages freehand. There were two things i hoped to accomplish; not having to duplicate lines that i had already drawn, and i also wanted any messups and the bleed of the pen to show as i worked through the process on the page. I like the way things turned out and i look forward to working more like this in the future. Please leave any comments about the drawings, even if you hate them- i like that shit just as much as a compliment.
I'm posting some fan hellboy fan art done on July 4th in remembrance of that great american icon Hellboy on his special holiday. the drawings were done by Mike Maydak, J.C. Filer( http://artofdoom.blogspot.com/), Doug Meyer, and myself. The First pic is a little fuzzy cause i just took photos of the page, my scanner is buried under some boxes (dont feeling like explaining any further). It was a pretty wild night that included some drunken wives, cheapo fireworks, and a black penis cake. i'm not really into penis but i do like cake cause i'm a bit of a fatty. i also put up a couple of pics of our table from Chicago that my wife took, i don't normally take pictures at the shows.
This is my very first post on here and there will hopefully be many more to come. I just got back from Wizard comic con in Chicago. I had a small press table with J.C. Filer, Mike Maydak, and Doug Meyer and it was a fun and exhausting time. I sold and traded some copies of my new book called Comatose, and bought a ton of quarter comics. i'm looking forward to reading everything that I picked up from there. i have posted a couple of pages from my book above and will try to get some more drawings up within the week. you can pick the book up at http://www.pauljurczak.etsy.com/
