Itsy bitsy teensy weensy drawings

So recently I've gotten very interested in some experimenting..
Taking myself a little tiny bit out of my normal comfort zone..and some really fun things have come out of it.
I've been trying my hand at making these really small, detailed, line drawings by just using a micron, with no preliminary pencil sketch first.
Most of the microns have been .005 or like .03.
The other new developement has been gouache.
I used to use gouache every once and a while...but basically had a pretty negative experience with it at school. (While I was still in the illustration department...)
But now trying it again in my own time.. I seem to be having more fun with it..
So anyway, here's some new fun drawings!

ps: gouache is used in the paintings that are more opaque, and the ones that are more translucent are watercolor. And if you'd like a more detailed look, click the pictures for a bigger version!)

Yes that's a starbucks cup.

Here's a super sketch dump for yall.... so sorry I'm so neglectful!
The following skeleton drawings were from a life drawing session.. I know what you're thinking..It's a skeleton..how can it be from life...
Well, this guy, Mister Rousche, makes these awesome monster masks, and posed for us playing his guitar...
So voila..
From life.
Most were done with water color, ink and tria markers!

These are just some random drawings... watercolor, ink

This is the South Street Diner. Watercolor, ink and gouache.

I'm not sure why it's doing this...but if you click on the drawings, you're supposed to get a bigger version..
However it comes up with a garble page of computer jargo...
But I figured out, if you just refresh your page (the larger picture page), it'll show you the bigger drawing, and get rid of the computer barf...

Just refresh the page if it does that..


New watercolor sketchbook!

So this weekend I went to MoCCa in NYC, in SoHo, for the comic art fest...
It was a lot of fun..I got to drop my book off at a few publishers, like Top Shelf, the people that publish Flight...Meat Haus
And a few artists...
It was really fun...a little overwhelming..but great.
I got to meet a lot of my favorite artists.. including Farel Dalrymple... whom I really admire.
I was so totally awkward when I met him...but he did a drawing in my sketchbook!
So it was worth it.

Anyhoo- if any of you want a copy of Malarkey, our comic anthology, get intouch with me!
More old doodles-es.

Me inspecting my belly button...

Some old lady from my b-b-b-b-brain.

These drawings didn't scan so well... I have a moleskin with creamy off-white pages...and even with tweaking my levels in photoshop... my pencil lines get a little lost. And in the last drawing especially... I was goofing around with a photo sensitive blue pencil...and of course, that, when I scanned... mostly disappeared...
