Drew Struzan homage

I just found these in a pile of old work I recently dug up. Here are a couple of studies I did of Bram's Drac back in college days.  Obviously hugely inspired by Poster Artist Drew Struzan, and of course nowhere near the level of brilliance of Struzan. He was a huge reason why I chose to become an artist.


A study from a master draughts-man from yesteryear. Herb Dickens.

SKETCHES- be it gouache, digital, inks or something else...

I enjoy doing landscape paintings and studies from observation. I am probably carting gouaches (opaque watercolor medium). Anyway, here are some results.
Travel Town
Streetscenes L.A. & others
Rolling Hills of southern California. (farmers added later)
An '83 Benz...I loved this actor's performance in Kingdom of Heaven!!!
A study of George Washington. I came across a J.C. Leyendecker, which inspired this...
Can't believe a 34 year old Gary Oldman is under there somewhere...Oh wait, I can- 'Cuz he's one of the best character actors ever. Great movie, great actor. Scary stuff!!!

Love me the KUng FU PAN-DA!!!

I have discovered a new app for the Nintendo DS called "Colors!" and yes the title of the app actually has an exclamation mark in it..... Indeed! Hah-haa. It's good practice.
