WIP- Manly Art Graffiti Tag

WIP- Manly Art Graffiti Tag, originally uploaded by manlyartjpc.

It's a catch up week at the Austin Sketch Squad so I decided to work on the Graffiti Tag challenge. I like where my Manly Art tag is going, so I'll probably clean it up and finish it.

Urban Legend

Jordan has posted the next generation of sketchbooks/notebooks over at Modofly. They have developed their own custom book, and now the covers are in full color! The samples I have seen look really top-notch. I have two designs in this round, so go check 'em out (click on the images to go to their pages). If my stuff isn't your cup of tea, there are fantastic books from the likes of Jason Limon, Dan May, Susan Rudat and many other talented artists.

I woke up to a little surprise this morning. I knew we might get some snow, but I had no idea it would be this much! It definitely makes for a nice cozy Sunday.


Chewie & Pierre

Meet Chewie & Pierre. The newest editions to my family. Lisa picked them up in Grosse Pointe when she went home last weekend. They are a little over 6 weeks old. They're settling in nicely.


Rabbit... Jessica, that is...

This weeks theme for the Austin Sketch Squad is "rabbit". I took a page from Mr. Stovall's book and went the sexy route.

Chewbacca... What a wookie!

Chewbacca... What a wookie!

Here's another mini painting I whipped up this morning. Chewie's hanging out at docking bay 94 looking like his usual bad-ass self.

This one is for an art trade with my buddy < flip.

Greek Chuck

The topic for The Austin Sketch Squad this week was Chuck Norris in Greek Mythology. In this pottery shard, we can clearly see Chuck Norris beheading Medusa with his famous round-house kick. Chuck Norris is so tough he could stare Medusa in the eye and not turn to stone.

This is part of a t-shirt design I'm working on for an Easter pub crawl the Huns RFC is hosting next month in Austin. She'll be leaning on the lettering. I'll post the final once they get the complete bar list to me. (Oh, and for those with eagle eyes, I've added her eyebrow since I scanned the drawing, hence the 'work in progress') :)

Boba Fett

Here's another painting in my Star Wars series. I'm going to try and keep 'em coming. I'll have this, and the others, for sale at Staple! this weekend.

Alright, I'm back on track. Something came up and I had to take a 2 day hiatus from painting. I should get another 2 done before I leave for Austin on Friday. Next up should be Boba Fett.

Once again, I'll be at Staple! this Saturday with all kinds of art goodies. Come on by and say "Hi"!
