In honor of Jack Kirby–Beware CHILI! The Mad Bean Walks the Earth!

August 29, 2007

If you’re a comic book fan, you may know that the 90th anniversary of Jack Kirby’s birth was August 28. I thought I’d try to do a Kirby-type monster.

This is what I came up with.

My youngest son thought it looked like a walking bean. One of my other boys thought it looked like something from a Looney Toons flick.

I thought it was kind of cute.

Inked with a Windsor-Newton Series 7 #2 brush, and colored in Photoshop.

Happy Birthday Jack!

Sketch of the Day 8/23/07–More Noir

August 23, 2007

I’ve been looking through “The Noir Style” by Alain Silver and James Ursini (ISBN #1-58567-485-0). There are many fine pictures from the noir era of Hollywood.

Here’s an adapted look of one of those photos–Glenn Ford from “In The Money Trap”. I drew the outlines of the main figure first with a Faber Castell PITT Artist Pen (superfine) and also used that pen for some of the finer rain effects. The rest is done with the Pocket Brush Pen.

Some of the details are drawn with a Faber-Castell Pitt Artist Pen, and the rest with the fabulous Pentel Pocket Brush Pen.

Have a great Sunday.

There’s much going on over the next few days, so postings may be light.

Here’s your drawing of the day, again sketched with the lovely Pentel Pocket Brush Pen.
