Mostly sketches. Occasionally a painting. Nothing political other than caricatures reinforcing the truism "Politics is Show Business for Ugly People".
I like...did you do that today?
Yes. Struck by inspiration this A.M. getting my coffee. Had to see it thru.
Kicking butt Marty. This is a calling. I guess you've floated it as the BrushPen web presence. With just a teensy bit more focus and purpose, the exact same work, you have a heavy traffic blog.
Eli, tell me what the focus is that you are thinking of--theme, or style?It all still looks too Jack Davis/Mort Drucker, doesn't it? Must seem like I am just trying to ape those dudes--but I swear it's my style. Seriously!
It IS your style, and a mighty fine style it is too. The speed at which you can whip out these incredible drawings is astonishing.
Marty, you just need some wider exposure, like Playboy, Mad Magazine or The New Yorker could give you. Next Comic Con you should give Doug Sneyd some samples. I'll bet he could put you in contact with the right people, if you feel like you WANT to do that kind of work.
Tommy! Thank you for the kind words!I'd love to do some of that sort of thing (Playboy, New Yorker, etc.)...but then, I wonder if that market still "exists" as a viable employment opportunity? However, I am assembling a portfolio for it....And I love that you think I'm fast. I am getting faster!
I'm thinking exactly what you've been doing only that the caricatures and notions all come from some pop culture shared experience vs the first hand studies at the coffee shop.Still do the coffee shop studies and publish them in the same place but make the point of the main studies something that "reviews" things we all have an access to.That's the gist of my idea.
Old Marty. I was actually looking for the shot of TAG with Kirby. Found this instead. The shot that Beata posted is a broke link. From The FB fan club for Shel Dorf. I''ll find it.
