Daily Sketch -- Aquaman

Sing along with me! "Aquaman, the bold and daring, King of the Seven Seas!" I've tried to draw Aquaman a lot over the years, never too successfully. No idea what year this was, though something in the legs makes me think I was studying a Bridgeman book at the time.

Vanilla Fudge - Shotgun

Anticipating Hot Fudge Friday!

Daily Sketch -- Eh, Not Sure

Hmmm, Not sure what to say about this one. It looks like some sort of worm wearing a bowtie. Can't think of what this would have been for, so I would say I was just messing around.


The party of the corporations, by the corporations and only for the corporations. Absolutely sickening.

Daily Sketch -- Orchids

This was done about 2007 when I went through a short period of ink sketches.

Damn, this looks so good. Hope it doesn't disappoint.

Daily Sketch -- Sweet Hitchhiker

Guessing I drew this around 1979, though it could have been much later. I don't remember anything about this one. All I know is she is hitchhiking and it appears to be cold outside.

Vanilla Fudge - Vanilla Fudge [Full Album]

Six days till we see the Fudge live. The anticipation is building.

Daily Sketch -- Batman Again

It looks like this may have been done in 1990, but I can't be sure. Just another doodling sketch of the Caped Crusader.

Daily Sketch -- Madness

It was the 1978 San Diego Comic Convention (as it was called in those days) and Baron Mrkva, Burt Griswold and I were sitting in our booth for our comic book, Mayhem, selling copies and original artwork and just getting our name out there...when the germ of an idea came to me. I think I might have wanted to do a Psycho-like shower scene but as I started to draw, this idea of American Indian spirits came into my head. As I kept laying out this page, the idea grew into a story I would do for Mayhem #3. Of course, there was no Mayhem #3 and the story was never finished, but a few penciled pages and layouts for the whole story were eventually done. But that entire story came out of my desire to draw a woman taking a shower.

Roger Comes to Dinner

Just a scene that may or may not make it into my novel

Roger reached the front door, but didn’t bother to knock; Kat’s favorite, power ballads, were booming out of the living room speakers and she would never have heard his knock over the music. Besides, there just seemed something wrong with having to knock to enter Kat’s house.

He didn’t walk in quietly, but Kat seemed to not have heard him. He found her in the kitchen, her head over a pot of something that smelled delicious and as he moved quietly up behind her, she bent over the pot and started to wiggle her butt suggestively.

“See anything you like?”

“I see everything I like. I didn’t think you knew I was here.”

Kat turned towards him, a big wooden spoon in her hand, “When Kat’s nether regions begin to tingle, she knows who has entered the room.” As she leaned forward and kissed him, a big splotch of red sauce dropped from the spoon, splattering Roger’s shirt.

“Kat! Watch what you’re doing!”

Kat smiled and raised her eyebrows, giving Roger a smoldering look. “Why don’t you take that shirt off and I’ll wash it for you.”

“Is your sloppiness at cooking all a ploy to get me undressed?”

Kat laughed. “I don’t know if I would call it a ploy…” She reached up and pulled Roger’s shirt over his head, her hand running between his pecs, “…but I do like the results.” Kat tossed the shirt onto the floor.

“Hey, that’s a new shirt. Why I ought to…”

“Ought to what? Punish me?” Kat’s smile grew even larger. “I think I need to be punished.” There was a fire in her eyes. “Don’t you?”

She spun around and turned off the stove. Without looking back she started walking towards the bedroom, removing clothes as she went. “I have been such a bad, bad girl.”

Daily Sketch - Girl on a DC-10

Over the years I have found that one of the easiest things to draw is people on planes. They can't go anywhere and they have a very limited range of movement making them perfect subjects for quick sketches.
