Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin)

There is a blue one who can't accept the green one
For living with a fat one trying to be a skinny one
And different strokes for different folks
And so on and so on and scooby dooby doo-bee
Oh sha sha - we got to live together
I am no better and neither are you

I really love Sly Stone. I admire his courage; his band was in their hey day in not-so-integrated times, but he wasn't afraid to call his mixed band his family. Also, he rocks.

I invented a lot on this one; the original ref photo was of him holding a knife to his face. His hair took forever and I'm not too sure I'm pleased with the end result, but I really do love this sketch.

Take care.

Though my mind wants to cry out loud!

One pill makes you larger, and one pill makes you small
And the ones that mother gives you, don't do anything at all

Go ask Alice, when she's ten feet tall

And if you go chasing rabbits, and you know you're going to fall
Tell 'em a hookah-smoking caterpillar has given you the call

Recall Alice, when she was just small

When the men on the chessboard get up and tell you where to go
And you've just had some kind of mushroom, and your mind is moving low

Go ask Alice, I think she'll know

When logic and proportion have fallen sloppy dead
And the white knight is talking backwards
And the red queen's "Off with her head"
Remember what the dormouse said
Feed your head, feed your head

One of the greatest singers of all time: Grace Slick.

I wanted this one to be free; obviously, I was getting experimental with the colors. I didn't want to take this to a finished stage. I like the sketchiness.

Much to my dismay, she resembles Zooey Deschanel a great deal. I am not a fan of hers.

Take care.

Feed your head.

I'm suffering from a personality crisis!

Personality Crisis you got it while it was hot
Frustration and heartache is all you got, don't you worry
Personality Crisis please don't cry
It's just a Personality Crisis, please don't stop

Sami Yaffa in various states of completion. I know him as the bassist for the reformed New York Dolls, but he's probably better known as the former bassist from Hanoi Rocks.

I'm trying to inject a little bit of age into him, especially around his mouth and eyes. He's not young anymore. Still amazing.

Take care.

He's my Sunshine Superman!

I think my best drawings are on notebook paper, or on the back of some important document. I also think that my most interesting work comes out of my head when I should be doing something important/else. This was yet another doodle done during my tutor training workshops.

Inspired by ELO's Mr. Blue Sky.

It's not the first time I've drawn this fellow; he may make other appearances.


Take care.

Been far too long...

I did all of these during my workshops this morning. I have to go to these training sessions so I can tutor during the school year and earn a little money.

I dunno, some retarded kid.

This is an affectionate self portrait that I've drawn a couple times now. I call her the Al Doll.

Sorry, I was thinking of John Entwhistle. Also, I thought the stitched mouth gave the doll a sort of morbid look, hence a zombie. I WILL ONLY WANT JOHN ENTWHISTLE'S BRAIN! NO ONE ELSE! This is one of my favorite drawings. I think it may be the best I've ever done.

Take care.
