Robot - Inspired by Chris Cunningham and Bjork
This is my first project that I have done for the Illustration Friday group. I joined the group quite some time ago, but I have only now learned how to get and use a blog. I was not quite finished with the final touches on this, but I wanted to make the deadline. My drawing is inspired from the Bjork video, All is Full of Love, directed by Chris Cunningham.

Mother and Child
Self Portrait 2
I prefer this self portrait to the other one. It was drawn from a photo taken of me one Halloween, when I painted my face with a Danzig skull. I had some difficulty taking a picture of it, due to it's size. It appears a bit crooked in this photo and seems to have taken on a strange, purple-like hue. It is actually black in color, and was drawn with graphite. The purple border was added later on via paintshop. For comparison, I am including the original photo from which I drew.

Self Portrait - Me and Whitney
I am not crazy about doing self portraits, but in life, you will have art teachers that make you do it, or groups that suggest it, so I guess I must comply. This was taken from a picture of me with my cousin's cat, Whitney. I was sort of hunched over, and snuggling her, but I don't know if I captured that quite right. I think maybe it looks like my upper body is just shortened. Oh well, I tried.
Roots - Ben
This is a drawing from a figure drawing group that I belong to. Usually, I just draw the figure as I see it, but for some reason, this pose just seemed to make me think of a plant or something to that effect, like almost as if his body resembled a pot that would hold a plant. Normally a pot would have a base, but I wanted to show some roots as well.
Another project from a group, to draw a motor vehicle of any kind. I was never very good at drawing cars, but I gave it a shot. I don't think it turned out too bad. What I wouldn't give to own one of these........actually, just to even drive one just one time.....ok, I'll settle for shotgun. I just googled to find a photo of one, and took it from there.
William Fichtner as an Alien
I decided to start a blog so that I may participate in some of the art groups I have joined. It seems most people these days are using this method to share their work. I will start by posting some of the work I have done within the past year or two, and then hopefully, when I get time, I will post new work from group projects.
This drawing here was a Halloween project for a group I belong to, where we had to pick any celebrity and either change them into something else, or draw them in costume. I chose William Fichtner as my celebrity ( a superb actor), and made him into an Alien. The strange part, is that I finished this drawing not long before I found out he was starring in a new TV show called Invasion. I must say, though, he does not look anything like this on that show.
