I've Just Seen A Face...

So this weekend I spent much of my time drawing. I got some nifty new pens,
and couldn't really wait to use them. I knew I wanted to draw some portraits,
but I wasn't sure who I wanted to draw.

John Lennon was the first portrait I started. I didn't initially think I was going to do
the rest of the band members, but once I finished John's portrait I figured why not?

This is a close up of the drawing. I decided to try doing a drawing made out of scribbles again. It's hard to get a picture of the detail, but you can kinda get the picture.

Paul was the second one I did. After I finished the portrait,
how could I not do the other two.

I really like using this technique with pens.
The mistakes don't seem so big when I use it.

I liked how they all came out. I think it would be
cool to do draw other bands, maybe.

I definitely want to do more portraits in this style.

If you would like a similar drawing of a different band or
artist, send a message my way. We could work something out.

I put these portraits up for sale on my Etsy.
Check them out if you'd like.

High School Dayz, Bad Stencils Edition

After my recent stencil craze, I decided to take a break from spray paint this weekend. I have been drawing and painting pretty much the whole weekend. Expect some new stuff this coming week. I'm not giving up on making more stencils, but I have to remember to balance everything. Holidays are coming up, so my work load is about to grow.

These are some stencils I did of movies I liked back in high school. Even know I still enjoy these movies. These were the first stencils I tried doing. I think they're alright, for a first attempt.

This was my first attempt at a multi layered stencil. Can you guess the movie?

This was done mostly as a joke....a really creepy joke...

Mr. Dylan.

So instead of trying to finish the paintings I have already started, I've been too busy starting new stencils. Spray paint is a medium I definitely want to improve on. I watched some documentaries about Mr. Dylan on netflix, so when I thought about what I should do a stencil of next...it seemed a little obvious.

I bought a bunch of spray paints and fooled around with the backgrounds a bit. I tried using different techniques when I was painting the backgrounds. I also practiced doing some drips, before I sprayed the actual stencil.

I decided to do three different stencils, like the Prince stencil,
in three different background colors.

I really enjoy making stencils and using spray paint. I think I'm going to keep going and make more. I'm now sure who or what I'm going to make a stencil of next. Suggestions are welcomed. If you would like to purchase any of these, I have them up for sale on my Etsy page.

Ain't No Party Like A Polka Party

I bought a bunch of records today. I want to start making more stencils and straying them onto the records. If they turn out nice I post some pictures...maybe. Hopefully they bring me a few pennies my way.

Oh...and also! ....Спасибо всем людям из России, которые смотрят на моем блоге.
