Mostly sketches. Occasionally a painting. Nothing political other than caricatures reinforcing the truism "Politics is Show Business for Ugly People".
I love workin' in the (nearly) full figure!Nice stuff!!
Looks great. The bottom rough stuff still showing lots of promise as the future sketchbook contents.Try channeling a little Dave Stevens. Gi to the Morgue. Get some Betty Page, Do a killer study of her and then drape her with your decorative costume notions.Voila, you're an instant fan favorite.
You have such a strong, personal thing going here with your fantasy women drawings Jim. Personally I'd like to hear a little bit about where the inspiration for these drawings comes from.
A "strong,personal thing" Tom? Care to elaborate on what your seeing? Inspiration? Really not sure about that.....looking for my muse perhaps. Maybe I'm just looking for something "New" as opposed to the stereotypical stuff out there now. I really don't know.
Exactly! We've all done a lot of commercial work for the big companies, and it all starts to look alike after a while, doesn't it? Because mostly they are concerned with churning out the most sellable work based on what's in fashion at the time. And it stops being fun doing that kind of work. But now you seem to be calling upon a very personal side to yourself, and someone can look at these drawings and say, "That's a Jim Gorham."
These loose ink drawings are really terrific. They feel a bit more lively and emotional than the highly polished computer work of yours.
