Some more scribbles

Here are some really rough sketches done in my hard cover sketchbooks with ball point pen and brush markers. When I sketch this way I try not to spend too much time on the sketches. Just a few minutes a piece. I don't concentrate on making anything accurate or pretty, but instead just let my pen flow and move on to the next sketch. Some are done while out on the road, some while watching movies and others are sketches from fashion magazines. the point is to keep yourself drawing daily and getting ideas down quickly.
These first couple are from imagination, memory, and magazines...

DAVE STEVENS (1955 - 2008)

I just found out that artist Dave Stevens has passed away a few days ago from complications of leukemia at the age of 52. Dave was a friend, mentor and huge inspiration to many artist the world over. Below is a tattoo I did on a fellow fan of Dave's art. This happens to be one of my favorite Betty Page pin-ups that Dave drew. As you can see, I did not do it justice. The art world lost one of it's best. My deepest condolences to all his family and friends. You will be missed greatly - Rest in Peace my friend. http://www.davestevens.com/
