Presidential Debates 2012

Well, I've never done a political drawing before, and they wouldn't be moving too much for 90 minutes, so, I figured they'd be ideal subjects. ya go!

The Conan O'Brien Bobble Hair doll

So, a couple of months ago, my friend Nathan asked me to create a Bobble HAIR doll of Conan O'Brien...where only his HAIR would bobble! So, seeing as how this had never been done before, to my knowledge, and the idea seemed especially ridiculous, I HAD to figure out how this could be done...

So, after calling my brother Alan's years of mold making experience, I followed his advice that there was no way I'd get a mold done fast enough in the time frame I had allotted, so I decided to make this as a one-off, with the idea that if I could get this in front of Conan himself somehow, one would be all I would need anyway. And so I began...

After trying various different avenues, I went to the very excellent Douglass and Sturgess  in downtown San Francisco. There, I discovered the materials with which I would create my Talisman.

What you see here is the second phase of production, before painting....more to come on this...

to see the final result, as it appeared on the Conan O'Brien show, go here to see the monologue, and here to see the whole show!

World Series 2010 Game #2. GIANTS MADNESS!!

Went down to AT&T Park to check out the madness, and drew this little ditty in the midst of it all. Then made my way up to Jillian's for the insanity of Game #2.

Jerk Steak gluttony for dinner, many shots of you-name-it, and the destruction of my voice box. Well worth it. Bring on game #3!

Halloween World Series Week in SF

As many of you know, Not only are the San Francisco Giants going to the World Series this week (can I get a WOO HOO?) , but it is also Halloween. That's what we call a double in honor of both, my icon/logo, Halloween 2010 edition...

So...sometimes I ask my friends sometimes for a topic to draw. Usually, it's something ridiculous I would have never thought of myself. And so, we have Tony's request for a Sharktopus. Granted, he may have heard of this from the sci-fi channel, which would explain its' nonsensical nature.

In any it goes..the ah...sharktopus. One ugly sucker.

Just Screwin' Around - The Midnight People

Sometimes I like to sit around and sketch stuff after midnight, just for warmups, just to stay loose. My brother Al dubbed these the Midnight People.

I call this guy "The Mirage"...

...and I'll just call her "space lady."

Just screwin' around.

10.10.10 North Beach and Fleet Week

Yesterday, I had planned to tour the city and draw 10 landmarks, in participation of the One Day on Earth project being coordinated by Eyestorm Productions. As it happens, the night before brought a surprise birthday party, Fleet week, and the Italian Heritage Day in North Beach during Columbus Day weekend. Which in turn brought a very late start, crowds, and mayhem.

I figured I could at least get one done. This drawing began as a clever view through some awnings to the Transamerica Pyramid beyond. Before I could finish the Pyramid, though, the awning had been extended, which, of course, covered my view. Whaddya gonna do? Ya win some, ya lose some!

My 40th Birthday

When we were kids, my brothers and I would sit at the kitchen table and draw variations of the same thing on the same sheet of paper. For my birthday, I thought it'd be cool if we did it again.

And so we did. And here you go.
