Self-Censorship!!



I'm censoring this drawing because this is a PG blog!!  But just for clarification's sake, the covered part is a penis.  *chuckling*

Enrico - Esque



Whenever I look at a picture of Enrico (Hotel Tuesday), I want to draw him.  Is it because he looks like my muse Jesus?  As usual with my attempts at drawing real people, this sort of looks like Enrico's doppelganger's second cousin twice removed if you are squinting.

Nymph In The Flowers

Dipping my toe back into the water after about 3 months.  I feel rusty!  I'll do one more today, I think...

...And Just For The Sake Of Pure Silliness...

Joe Miller unwittingly awakens a whole new voting bloc, now energized to come out and support Lisa Murkowski's possible switch to the Libertarian Party!  Prostitute Power!!

Catholic Stripper

Marcello (aka Da Eucharist) found that this outfit brought him the most tips at the underground Vatican gay club, Cloisters & Closets.

Inside The Tomb

This is supposed to be after Jesus wakes up, or is resurrected as it were, and he has to tear the wrappings off of his body and face.  Although to hear that shroud tell it, this drawing is all off.  But anyhoo...the orb is an angel/spirit-like thing giving him guidance, or what not.  My mind is not working properly today.  I think I need beer.

Ahoy, Matey

Another sailor, this one sporting a more European style cover and a tank top that is not regulation wear in any nation's branch of any service.  Except maybe Strippervania, which is located right next to Escortonia.

I did a yellowish tint of this drawing that I think I might use for a new t-shirt design for myself.

William - Esque

After watching the 1952 Moulin Rouge over the weekend and falling into my best Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec mood, I decided to attempt a drawing of my current crush object from The Spotlight Bar.  This would be the fantastic William.  I didn't have a photo to base this one on, so it's just from memory (drunken memory at that).

Previous Spotlight Crush Objects MIGUEL and ELLIOT.

Random Bar Sketch...

...in between swigs of beer and off-key singing along with the jukebox, a happy little satyr...

David Gregory Giving NBC Sex Appeal

One of my favorite news guys is David Gregory, who hosts Meet The Press.  I LOVE the prematurely gray look set off against the dark eyebrows.  Here is a silly little clip that I thought up while I was watching him interview McCain this past weekend.

Sujata And Siddhartha

Rachel Zoe gave Siddhartha the once over and sniffed, "Pffft!  I've seen skinnier."

I know less than zero about Buddhism, but I was watching a special on it and got inspired by a skeletal statue of the pre-Buddha Buddha and decided to give it a shot.  It doesn't move me like dead Jesus does, but it was an interesting exercise.

Janelle Monae - Esque

This video by Janelle Monae had me wanting to give her a standing ovation.  I love the James Brown flavor of the song and visually Janelle is an artist's dream.  She's got a look that is very specific to her so you can play around with interpretations and have it still be recognizable as Janelle Monae.   This drawing, however, is just a straightforward sort of portrait.  I can see myself returning to the Janelle-well in the future for something more abstract.

Veronica Wipes Jesus Christ's Face

So, Jesus was lugging his cross to Golgotha when he nearly collapsed and Veronica, thinking she was doing a good deed, wiped his face.  But the thing is, all of his makeup came off on her towel, and Jesus had to get crucified without his face on.  For shame, Veronica, what would Tammy Faye say?

Kalup Linzy - Esque

I spotted artist/performer/video auteur Kalup Linzy in the April Details magazine (I'm finally catching up with my back issues) and totally thought, "Must look up this persona and sketch him."  Here we have one of Kalup's alter egos.  **I won't put my normal disclaimer about the picture not really looking like the subject, but by putting this non-disclaimer, I'm actually putting my normal disclaimer.**

At The Brothel

Gustavo, now chained to a wall in his cell, had to be taught that attempts to escape would be met with the harshest of punishments.

It had been some time since I'd drawn anything, so this one has much more detail.  I was bursting.

Jesus Gets Rigor Mortis


As Angel Allaja carries a rigor mortis stiffened Jesus down from the cross, he grumbled to himself, "Jesus Christ, this dead weight is a bitch to tote."

Stranded Sailor Hitchhikes

Luke missed the last bus and needs a ride to the ship.  He might be a little full of tequila, so no funny business.  No telling what he might be willing to do in that condition.

Oooo, Shiny!!

I'm not really a fan of LGG, but I am a big fan of this song and video.  So while this isn't supposed to actually look like LGG, it is supposed to look like my favorite scene in this clip where the camera does the 360 around her standing in the middle of crystals which appear to be suspended in mid air (starts around the 3 minute mark).  I didn't reference the video while drawing, instead just worked from memory.  Not an exact copy but sort of an "impression of."

All that eye makeup and shiny diamond-like things?  I say yes.

Androgynous Angel

In Progress: Androgynous Angel

At this point I have in my head what I want on paper, but can't quite get it down so I'll leave it for a bit and drink some coffee, have a carrot, watch some Dorian Lord...then come back to it.

Gio: In Progress...


I started working on this after watching THIS VIDEO of Gio Black Peter performing, and thought it was such an iconic look for him.

As usual, due to my own repressed emotions, his face isn't really showing much emotion (a common problem with my drawings).  I'm going to try to work on that, also maybe try to make it actually somewhat LOOK like him.  My neck started aching a bit and my stomach growling, so I'm going to put it aside for tonight and work on it tomorrow. 

**I think hot dogs and Pepsi...**

Matthew Gray Gubler - Esque


Here we have someone who resembles Matthew Gray Gubler from afar if you squint, perhaps his stand-in?

This may have been just an opportunity for me to stare at his picture...you know, for details and the like...

I'm pretty sure I've recycled that "joke" from another drawing I did.

So I'm watching Criminal Minds last night on ION and in this episode, Dr. Reid draws a sketch of someone he thinks might be a suspect and it was actually one of Matthew's drawings.  I recognized it as his work right away.  Funny note:  On one of his older posts on his website about shooting the pilot of Criminal Minds, he said they cut his hair and it looked like Crispin Glover from Back To The Future.  I laughed.  George had a pretty spectacular 'do and I'm pretty sure I was crushing on him also...

Whirling Dervish


Beautiful, awe-inspiring, but creepy as hell.  The trance, the otherworldly look of them...they gives me the slight willies but I still find them intoxicating.  A couple of whirling dervishes.

Nose: Reconstructed...


My whirling dervish had to undergo a nose job, as the original looked entirely jacked up.  So I sat around and stared at it, considered how nostrils are actually shaped and came up with a slightly better version.

Back Alley Bojanek


"2000 crowns is a good deal.  I'm clean and I'm great at what I do," explained Bojanek.

"So, uh, why's that sign in English?" asked the client.

"Unplanned continent shift, I suppose..." replied Bojanek.

"And why aren't we speaking Czech?" asked the client.

"Google Translator is slipshot at best," replied Bojanek.

Magic Marker Crucifixion


Pardon me while I come down from my marker induced high...I can fly!!
