Chimp Sketch of the Week #21

Not an Etching 

I drew this in ink using a nib and brush then added yellow acrylic paint that I smeared into the background using my finger. I will be selling the original drawing on Etsy for $25.  if you are the one to buy it you will get two for the price of one because I drew it on the back of a botched etching.

Cave Painting

This image was done for an article titled The Allure of the Gay Cavemen at Scientific American. I had fun drawing this in charcoal I first stained the paper with Lipton tea then went to a primal place respecting early man and their need for visual communication, in many ways all illustration started with cave paintings and in many ways all of my work is simply another cave painting.

Chimp Sketch of the Week #20

Charcoal sketch # 1

So I have not drawn with charcoal since art school, but I had a few sticks sitting in a draw so I had some fun, drew this and fell in love all over again with the medium. With this sketch I have started a sub series of Chimp Sketch of the Week that I will be putting in up periodically and also selling the originals HERE at a reasonable price
