Another Meeting, Another Doodle


This is the result of a six-hour meeting on Saturday. Someone there tried to steal it from me, but I'm lightning fast, baby. I scanned it larger than the others so if you click on it you'll see it in more detail.

Just a few of the things I can see in it:
a cabin; Mario(a friend of mine swears it's the bat signal); a mummy; a girl leaning against a tree looking down; a rose, an alien skeleton, a bus, a woman in a skirt taking off her jacket (this one's very subtle); a drawing compass wearing gym shorts; an old haunted house with a lot of junk in front of it; a jeep; a low rider; an upside-down mountain lion; a nose-diving goose; a star; upside-down hearts; an amtrak train; a barn; the dog/reindeer from the Grinch; an olive branch; a scale; a harp; a bust of some guy; a pot of gold; two safety pins; a stratocaster; and lots of other things.

I see almost everything you see...but my question is...do you just start drawing withouth anything in mind or you start for exapmle with a specific object...like a tree...

No, I don't start out with anything in mind. I've tried that and it limits me too much--too much pressure to make it look like what I'm trying to draw. I just start out with lines and curves and they usually start to suggest an object and I complete that object. In this case, I really liked the bricks and the tree on the last one I did (the 2nd one in the previous post) so I did drew those things. But the rest just comes out spontaneously.

Okay. I'm jealous. My drawings look like stick figures next to yours. Have you any idea how amazing your work is? Sheez, man.

That is great I think it makes your work even more special...
