Sketchbook 1

Sketchbook 1, originally uploaded by OneSevenNine.

This is one of my infamous hybrid of ideas; the Germbot Baby Jesus.
This illustration I made into only a handful of paintings. Nothing I still have either which makes me sad. I really need to get into the habit of taking pictures of the paintings I do.

The last one I did was actually Jonah and the Whale. It was a painting of Germbot Jonah coming out a large fish's mouth dancing in the style of Hindu God Ganesh. Very Epic. I think my sister took this painting...

Okay, thanks for stopping by!

Here is the long awaited flier!
This Saturday, artsy farsty will be going down at the local ice cream parlor! You know you want to get down. Bring family and friends, Full Tilt is kid friendly.

Take a look at the Flickr, I have tons of new sketches from the good old days!


Kraftbook 4 :: Omec Inspired Germbots

Kraftbook 4, originally uploaded by OneSevenNine.

Here is another goodie from the Kraftbook I found. This illustration is inspired by the Olmec heads.

"The most recognized aspect of the Olmec civilization are the enormous helmeted heads. As no known pre-Columbian text explains them, these impressive monuments have been the subject of much speculation. Once theorized to be ballplayers, it is now generally accepted that these heads are portraits of rulers, perhaps dressed as ballplayers. Infused with individuality, no two heads are alike and the helmet-like headdresses are adorned with distinctive elements, suggesting to some personal or group symbols." -Wikipedia Online

I really enjoyed this kraft paper and am super excited I found this book. I think the next couple of days are going to be filled with some intense sketching. Take care!

Kraftbook 2

Kraftbook 2, originally uploaded by OneSevenNine.

I'll say all these are Circa 2007ish?
I just uploaded a ton of illustrations and sketches from this period to the Flick so please remember to click the link and check it out.

I remember it being really thoughtful and moody. There are a lot of lists of reminders of things I hoped I would never forget and things I loved and would miss if I did. A lot of ground breaking ideas came from these early drawings and I am proud of the influence it had.

I am also thankful of the people that are listed here like Ego has a sketch in here, Brian from Nomadic Skateboards and Josh from Indecline, Will and Garrett and Elisha and Meli by Girls!

Okay, so I have a show coming up this weekend... You know you want to eat some delicious icecream with me in vegan waffle cones and tour White Center! I will have a flier up shortly. I hope to see you all sooner rather then later.

Ninja Turtles Circa1993

Ninja Turtles Circa1993, originally uploaded by OneSevenNine.

I found these while cleaning my very messy painting section at home. These are gems of the history of my art career. Check the Flickr for more of the Ninja Turtles and my comic heroes of the past.

Good Night!


Sketch :: Fazed, originally uploaded by OneSevenNine.

Things from the sketchbook...
This was all done with an all gray-scale marker set.
My personal favorite.

The theme for this was to do the word FAZED. There are all kinds of things going on here from Good Luck Darumas to capturing the zzzzz's by counting sheep.

I like these exercises since they allow me to go with what I feel and be super silly.

Be sure to stop by the Flick's Sketchbook section. I should be adding more images from past sketchbooks here in the next few days... there will be some truly hilarious things in there!

Just the right price!

Just the right price!, originally uploaded by OneSevenNine.
This is hilarious!
My little friend Alex found this at one of my favorite Seattle grocery stores. It is names and priced at just the right amount. Very funny, THANK YOU ALEX!!

I have been on the grind painting and sharpening my cooking skills for my little family. Tops on my list if the honey, lemon, saffron chicken and potatoes. Pretty win. Handsome man ain't so bad himself, his breakfast the other day was wonderful.

In between cooking and painting I have also been practicing my ukulele. Lofa, if you read this, I am singing you a song when I come and visit so be prepared!

This week, please come to Seattle's Pioneer Square First Thursday Art Walk. I will have a skateboard at Deli and a canvas at Flatcolor Gallery. Thank you Cris and Max, you two are gems.

And if you are wondering, yes, I did make those sugar skulls a few years ago when I was working for the OFH.

Thanks for stopping by the blog!
