Here are some doodles that I’ve done over a few nights of drinking and drawing. Pretty much all typical motifs for those nights are represented: Superheroes, rockers, barbarians, women and general bad taste… For many of these I picked a theme and stuck with it until the next paper.
Jeez, the site sure is slow today.
Here’s someone I’ve been meaning to do for quite some time and who seems to fascinate me to no end: Glenn Danzig.
A bit of eerie synchronicity going on as well: Going through some biographies I just realized that I finished the image – truly unbeknownst to myself – on his damn birthday, June 23rd. So happy birthday, Glenn…
Fucking metal. Serious business.
Here’s a few sketches that I drew awhile back when we were doing a bit of drinking and drawing before heading out to see some bands. Consider this a little insight into the kind of music that was played that night…
This is what we were listening to first…
… and this is what we listened after that. I was having some trouble drawing the pentagram by that time. The last sketch of the night, heh.
And finally a sketch anticipating the live stuff…
This music business is serious stuff, you know.
While I normally frown at all obnoxiously loud, aggressive and rude lowbrow music like "rock", "metal" or – heaven help me – "punk", I’ve found myself fascinated by the gentle rhythms and touching lyrics of the psycho punkabilly band Mad Sin’s latest album "Dead Moon’s Calling." So much in fact that I felt like doing some obnoxious rock ‘n’ roll art of my own.
So I came up with my own Psychobilly Guitar Slinger that plays faster than Lee Van Cleef draws his Colt – and louder than six Motörheads put together. He doesn’t need a name; he’s so cool that even hell freezes over him – and when he strikes a chord, even fucking angels fall off their clouds and in love with him.
And as a bonus image, here’s a quickie I did long ago. She’s not someone to fuck around with either.
