SketchClub January Events!

It's another great year with the Lubbock SketchClub. As we enter our third year we have a lot of our regular goodness, plus some all new awesomeness in store. Here are a few highlites for January!


"Freedom of Expression" Art Show - Local artists showing off their unique styles in one show from 6 - 9 pm, THIS FRIDAY!!! Where: Stray Dog Gallery 1917 Buddy Holly Ave. For more information, please contact Jenn Adkins at bakkacreative AT gmail DOT com


The Sketch Club figure drawing group is back and we will be meeting NEXT Wednesday (Jan 7) at the garden and arts center 6:30 til 9:00. Cost is $7.00 per artist. These sessions consist of several quick warm-up poses, some 5 minute poses, ending in a few longer poses. Also we will be alternating between nude and clothed/costumed models from week to week. If you have any questions please contact Robert Garza super1701b AT gmail DOT com

There's nothing quite like drawing with friends. If its been a while since you've felt inspired or just had fun drawing? Come out to the sketch night and get in on the creativity! It's free! Just bring your sketchbooks, pencils and an attitude of fun! Join us every Saturday from 7-10pm at Freebirds World Burrito at 4930 S. Loop 289!

If you are planning to attend STAPLE in Austin as an exhibitor in March, it is important that you put in your application as soon as possible. Prices go up on the tables January 31st, and it was about this time last year that the tables sold out. So get in now! I've bought a table for myself and Amber, as well as to promote Lubbock's own comic book Expo - coming Saturday May 2nd, 2009!!! If you would like to find out more about STAPLE, visit their website here...


I will be doing a guest artist signing at Premiere Comics in Abilene TX (3458 Catclaw Dr.) Thursday January 22nd. I'll also be hanging out with the Abilene Sketch Club that evening if you're in that area and want to drop by. I hear they have a great group going in Abilene, and I'm looking forward to checking it out. If you've been wanting to give it a try, this will be a great chance for you to get into the mix.

Visit our website for more information!

Keep smiling!

This was my lunchtime sketch today. I was in a flamenco dancer kind of mood. Although the girl in the bottom corner ended up being a belly dancer. These were fun. I love dancers.

Monster sketches

Here's some quick little monsters for you. I got the idea to do these from one of Bobby Chiu's inspirational videos. The first couple ones are his little monsters and then I went on and tried a few of my own. These were a lot of fun and I'll prolly keep doing more of them. Each one took about 10 minutes in photoshop.

Here's the video...

ps. it's really bugging me how blogger doesn't reduce these images down to thumbnails anymore. I think I'm supposed to upgrade or something. I'm working on a new website anyways. You'll see this change in the next couple of weeks. Keep an eye out!

Mike Leach - Mad Scientist Shirt

I have a new shirt out this week from Red Raider Outfitter . Here's hoping he sticks around. I REALLY love how this shirt turned out. This is the first time we've been able to get that airbrush type of screen print to work. Not quite sure how we did it, just that we did. I'm much stronger at Photoshop, so its been frustrating not being able to use that skill. Here's hoping we can do a lot more now. Here's praying also that Leach sticks around.

Demon Cloud digital sketch

One of my absolute favorite artists in this world is a French artist that goes by the name Bengal. I love his colors and I am completely in love with the way he draws women. So much personality!

Anyways, I always told myself when I started getting better at color and digital painting that I would try and reproduce some of his drawings. I just love how eccentric his colors are - So spontaneous and free.

I took a stab at this one, though I don't think it was successful. I like what was going on in her right thigh there, and some of whats going on in her face. But overall I wasn't happy with this. Especially with her hammy feet. I really need to get back to a figure drawing group. I did have fun with this though. I may try a few more Bengal sketches this weekend.

Cat Girl Digital painting

I think I found this photo on Deviant art a few years ago. I really don't have much to say other than that. Its been a challenging couple of weeks and I'm working on getting back into a creative spirit. This painting turned out well I think. It's prolly my best digital painting to date. I'm getting a lot better about softening up on my colors and I'm getting comfortable with using subtleties. Then again I'm talking about a naked girl with bits of fur. How subtle can you get?
