This looks like one of those pages done on an energy drink buzz. I really need to lay off of those, I'm afraid my heart is just going to turn into maple syrup soon.
Lacking inspiration I flipped through a book of nothing but images of devils and started doing my takes on some of them (left side). I really like the one with the trunk and feathery eye thingies at the top of the left page.
Thanks to everyone that came to the art show at Kettle, and especially to those awesome folks that bought my art! I sold about half of my work, so that rocks. I wish I could say that the money will go to good use, but in reality it will be used to feed my insatiable toy and book habit. It's worse than drugs.

Gallery hours are Thursday through Saturday, 7:00-10:00 pm and by appointment-214 573-7622. Frank Campagna, the Artistic Director, is a really awesome guy and I would love for as many people that can to go by the gallery. They have a ton of great shows that people should really go check out.
More sketchbook pages coming soon, thanks!

I'm thinking about actually trademarking sweaty heads so that I'm the only one allowed to draw them. Maybe just trademarking ugly would work as well.
Charlie Brown is covering up probably the stupidest and most embarrasing thing I've ever drawn. Seriously, it was one of those drawings that made me question if I should keep drawing anymore at all. But as long as it's not visible it doesn't exist.
More random ugliness and weirdness, I promise not to take 2 months until my next post. Thanks guys!

Your eyes aren't playing tricks on you, I did indeed use a blue pen on this page. I think this was done after working a 10 hour day and just needed to unwind.
More blue! I must have just gone crazy with the colors here. Comments welcome, thanks folks!!

Don't even ask about the man in the bra, I have no answer.
These two finished pieces are for an art show based on Saturday morning cartoons. I was a complete Ghostbuster nut as a kid so I did this watercolor of the boys chasing an oblivious Casper who thinks he's found some friends. Poor ol' Casper!
I also loved Inspector Gadget so I did this one of him using some rather violent gadgets on a burgler. If these pieces don't sell at the show them look for the on my website at http://www.degrandland.com/, I'll make them available to purchase then. Thanks everyone!

Man, sometimes my artwork is too bizarre even for me. I frankly have no idea what to say about these pages. I've been so mentally fried lately that I think I'll just let the drawings speak for themselves this time.
I had fun with the page on the left, I just tried to draw as many weird facial expressions as I could come up with. I'll probably do some more of these sometime. The heads on the right page are designs for some T-shirts and buttons I'd like to have done someday.
I was watching a really weird Betty Boop cartoon that had these hillbilly characters with these strange saggy cheeks, so naturally I had to see if I could draw one. He's the one on the left page saying "Hoo Doggies!"
More random characters from the deepest regions of my subconscience. Scary ain't it?
