See below for the post about the drawing that I did for Banci Cartoonist. This is also a Brush & Ink Cartoon (Approx 10" x 15") on Bristol Board. It's the second of the ink drawings that I am working on based on sketchbook drawings.
At some point I will make prints of these, or put them in a book. Send me a message if you are interested in purchasing the original art to this, or any of my previous sketchbook posts that I can remake in Brush & Ink.

Banci Wright aka Banci Cartoonist, is one of my favourite artists working today. He posts a lot of stuff on Facebook, so check him out if you don't know who he is.
Banci did a fantastic cartoon of me & he then sent me the original art, plus a drawing for Rachel! What a guy!
Anyway, weeks later, I drew this brush & ink drawing for him. It's the first brush & ink picture that I've done in a while and also the first time I've used the Dalon brush. But am pleased with this and have started a few more...

I know what you're thinking...
"Why is he pretending to draw?" "He hasn't even taken the cap off that pen! What a rip-off!!" "Is he drunk?" "Did he dress himself?" "Why doesn't he move out of the way, so I can see his comic books?"

Every now and again I'll wake up in the morning and think I have a good idea for a drawing. C'mon, you guys know the feeling, huh? Of course you do.
So, let's get to that drawing board, and get some pens and brushes lined up... Okay. Now lets pick some nice paper to defile. Hey! Where's that pastel paper that I bought the other week? (Sound effect: Opens desk drawer...) Here it is!
Right, let's try inking with the dip-pen... Aaargh! Shit! It's tearing up the paper's surface!! Quick... Switch to brush. That's better... Uhhh... Hang on..! This is like drawing on blotting paper* ... Whatta friggin' mess!
Right. We gotta' salvage this shit somehow... I know! Let's put some paint and ink wash for the background. That'll distract 'em!
*Not kidding! I used nearly half a bottle of ink on this little picture...

Like Dinosaur Jockey, this is another brush & ink drawing. The image size is approx. 8" x 10" drawn on 2-Ply A4 Bristol Board. I'm drawing some of the sketchbook images in ink at around 10" x 15", and this and Dinosaur are trying out the brushes...

There ain't no barrel that we won't scrape, in this "special" sketchbook...
This is a detail, as the full drawing (and several others for some reason) wouldn't upload after I scanned them...
Will add notes/update this when I figure out why I can't upload the others.
To be continued...

Like it says up there in the title bar, here are some, er experiments with marker Brush-Pens. Just throwing the markers around the page to see what "effects" I could get. Banci Cartoonist (Check his stuff out on Facebook) does it much better...
The first one of the morning...
...And here's a first draft for a drawing in my impending collection. Not happy with the Serpent, or Eve (Too "dopey" looking) will re-draw soon!

Here & in the two posts below, are some sketches that I'd usually reject from my regular "Sketchbook" posts. But, here at the Filthy Moods Dugout For Desperate Doodlers, we are not ashamed to scrape the barrel when we are short of shit. So to speak.
So polish yer eyeballs, loosen yer pants and grit those dentures and scroll slowly downwards to see what could could have been funnier or better drawn if only I'd hung in there or sobered up a bit quicker on the day...
Thank you for lowering your standards...

As I've mentioned before on my "Sketchbook" I draw a lot of cartoons in my sketchbooks, and only post up the ones that I think have interesting ideas, good drawing or (most importantly?) are funny.
So what happens to the poor little bastards who don't make the "grade" you ask? You did ask, didn't you? Well, short answer is they go in the trash. But, just for your curiosity, (You are curious, aren't you?) here are a few "rejects" with a last minute reprieve before I take them on that long green mile down to the Shredder...
I was tempted to "save" this one, but... Oh, hell! You be the judge!!
"Gag" idea for my "Eventually It Will Happen" book...
More dinosaur "humour"...
He don't need no stinkin' brain!
More "rejects" below... Mostly "unfinished" sketches.
