Insomnia is help me wake up twice tonight already, so I figured I would get a drawing or two in before I pass out again. In this case, it's based off of #jazz #Trumpeter @eriktruffaz , whose work I've been a fan of for many years. As of my recent work, this is done with my non-dominant hand and is mostly a blind Contour #drawing, so it's a little rapid and messy. At some point I'm pretty sure I'll add paint to this. #art #sketch

A few hours early for #TBT but whatever. This dates back to 2003 and it's one of the earliest entries in my #devionomicon series (#portraits of members of the #deviantART site, which I was a gallery director at for a few years in the mid aughts. #Art #mixedmedia #drawing #pixlr #prisma

#doodle using non-dominant hand. Well I appear to have mastered gigantic lips and thin judging eyes. #art #dailydoodle #drawing

Current mood. This is from 2007, and is from my #deviantART days. Prints and such are still available on there all of this in its original form, as this has been processed through #Pixlr and #Prisma. It is otherwise #mixedmedia on Bristol, and processed digitally. #art #portrait #illustration #painting

One of the last little experiments I made for myself recently, I wish I could have another one now. @bluebottle and #mishkas of Davis #coffee. (this was a hot coffee drink, but I use the blue bottle as a replacement for cream) , cinnamon, Mexican chocolate and @stgeorgespirits coffee #liqueur. #mixology

Day 4 of #drawing with my non-dominant hand. I'm pretty much resorting to using a light box approach. And what I gained in a little bit of stylistic fidelity, I still lose in that my overall faculties are so lopsided that any attempt to do anything at detail is pretty much guaranteed to go sideways. Still, artists gotta #art. #Pixlr #Prisma #sketches

A mid 2000s #portrait #mixedmedia #illustration of brother watusi no. 2. #art #drawing #fbf

From a few years back, an illustration based off of a sleeve image of #PhilOakey , frontman for the @thehumanleague .…. done in pencil, water soluble colored pencil, and gouache. #art #popart #newwave

Day 3 of m my Excursion into #drawing with my non-dominant hand. Survey says, jury is still out. #art #sketches

A 2005 #drawing from a 1992 photo session, this is the one usable result from that whole day, titled "small affections". #art #tbt #sketches

For many years I had a subscription to the @financialtimes of London, and I would often cut pictures out and kind of remix #paint my own commentary in. And this one just seems kind of appropriate given the recent #taxscambill. #art #popart #goldmansachs

day 2 of drawing with my left hand. this time using a brush pen, it's weird to see how some things stay instinctively in style, while a total loss of other key aspects drives me batty. I'm trying to use this as a longer-term experiment with how I approach #drawing and inevitably painting, by using the wrong arm and hand and it's very humbling and frightening and maddening. #art #doodle #sketching

An Untitled #drawing from 1994 done with no pencils, just straight #rapidograph to paper remixed here with #Pixlr and #Prisma. #art #illustration #birds

I have the strangest boner right now.

A #workinprogress long sitting on the shelf, this is something I had started for a tribute project around #hiphop sound guru #jdilla. #art #dj #rap #drawing #sketch.

day 1 of #drawing with my non-dominant hand. Not sure how I'm going to keep doing this for the next couple of weeks, but let's see what happens. #doodle #art

From a few years back..."chomp the bit" #art #drawing #sketch #handcuffs ...and yes in hindsight I kind of drew the #lips like #howardchaykin

Resurrected the #vinylremix series with "this damn nation by The Godfathers. We'll see where I take this...#itwontbenice #workinprogress #art

#workinprogress ...it has moved forward, but has lots of rough spots. #mixedmedia #painting #abstract #arabesque #art

#wip the pencils were done 11 years ago and digitally cleaned up and colored here: http://ift.tt/2AqqqTB ... Neither have an account on deviantART anymore nor do I know any other way to find them, but I found those original pencils and felt compelled to actually start finishing them using standard materials as I originally intended. #art #drawing #illustration #desenho #dessin #dizzz

#sketch #doodle with some very obscure #geekhumor "it's so Cray, it's a Y-MP" #hpc #supercomputing #lolwhut

In 2007 I did a quick brush pen #drawing of bay area musical journalism staple #benfongtorres (he's written for Parade, Rolling Stone, etc). #art #tbt

This #tbt #sketch goes back to the early 2000s, and I have no idea what the hell it's supposed to be. Only that I liked my own linework. Pencil, processed in #Prisma . #art #drawing

Coercion returns to #DTSJ

#workinprogress #abstract #painting. #wip #art

Current mood. #doodle :|

#vinylremix #mixedmedia #painting from many moons ago, of the #neogeo album from #ryuichisakamoto ...still a fave but never released as a print (which I'll try to fix soon). #art #popart

After getting back from CLE, grabbed dinner and part of a set from @timlinmusic and co during the Sunday #Jazz Jam in #DTSJ #livemusic #sofadistrict

Tis the season, for #Portuguese people to make large batches of linguiça and choriço. #cozinhaportuguesa #foodporn

Yesterday evening I went and did Pub trivia with some #localcolorsj folks at @sofamarketsj by The Fountainhead. As is customary, I draw on anything. #doodle #art

#doodle #sketch from this weekend in CLE. #art #drawing #polkadots

Rest in power #benriley. To be quite honest I never took much note of Riley in as much I knew he was #Thelonious Monks #drummer and was spectacularly suited to him, which I guess is his lasting Legacy as being a pretty top-notch accompanist who never got in the way of anyone he was playing with. #jazz #drawing #sketchoftheday

SFO-->MSP-->CLE

#prisma manipulated #skull #doodle

Because I'm going to see them live again tonight (having traveled across the country to get the 'royal' treatment): An old early part of the Vinyl Remix series that I never completed with any formality but submitted anyway. This is the cleaned up from 2004 version. The VR series is where I take old 12" album covers and use them as canvas to adapt the original image into something often far afield. In this case, Beat which was the 1982 release of @kingcrimsonofficial acrylic paint, acrylic ink, wax, rice paper and various other bits of debris + digital As an aside, the best part of this was later being acknowledged by KC biographer #sidsmith for doing this.

It started as a half blind contour #drawing , then kind of ended up here. #art #sketchoftheday #bryancranston

Morning in #DTSJ

The greatest soup in culinary history. #caldoverde (literal translation = "green broth") which is basically a perfect mix of kale, potato and choriço...my mother makes a mean bowl.

#workinprogress ...mostly.

Among the originals I am putting up for sale, a #mixedmedia #portrait #painting of #basquiat. It's on a 12" SQ. panel.
