Monster time! I've always liked (though this does not resemble them) the Ed "Big Daddy Roth" school of monsterology. Remember those trading cards? And those foul people you'd see on the Wacky Packs cards? Again, this guy doesn't look like them, so why am I even mentioning it?

My good pal Jimboni of the beautiful http://jimfeeley.blogspot.com/ art blog had a link to his favorite art blog, which in turn got into my head and spilled out two days later as this. In other words, this was influenced by what I had seen at that other blog. The color treatment below, however, was influenced by nothin' but net. Now get out there and win one for the team!

I've been reading the Harvey Comics Classics Vol. 1 of CASPER THE FRIENDLY GHOST. I've always loved the designs of Casper and Hot Stuff, especially when drawn by some of the better artists. So here's to Casper, the big-headed white kid!

Batman does return again and agian in my drawing life. Maybe I should one day learn what his costume really looks like. This of course is the weather-beaten homeless version of Batman, uselessly hanging his over-long left arm out to the side, just like the dude way down on day 004 or whatever.

Another sketch suffering from features placed incorrectly on the head. I always find satisfaction out of such errors, but they should be avoided in polite company. This was done while looking at a small photograph some 8 feet away.

Things can go awry when you draw directly with the brush pen. Poor Chris Bennett suffers here from features that are not properly placed on the head. Still, I feel like it kind of captures his likeness, and I even enjoy the fact that his eyes and nose and mouth are kind of pulled to the left... it makes the whole thing less boring.
I adapted a pose of some dancer lady for this pencil sketch... I wish I had shaded in her ear area. I drew and erased her face (not based on the afore-mentioned dancer) several times , but it doesn't seem like her features are particularly interesting.
The inaugural drawing of 2008. A boxing brute, stemming perhaps from my mindset that in able to do my 365 drawings, I'll have to be disciplined and conditioned like a boxer. Kind of makes drawing/sketching sound sooooo hard. Wahhhhh. I used a Pentel refillable brush pen I got from Little Tokyo (while on jury duty). I think it only costed about $13. Did I mention that the jury DID NOT rule in favor of the "trip and stumble" plaintiff?
