new stuff

I got bored drawing in pencil so I tried sketching with a ball point pen and really enjoyed it. I think these pages have an antique woodcut or etched look to them. Makes me want to experiment with printmaking again.
Trying to get better with cross-hatching, getting slightly less frustrating.
Just for fun here's my Munny I painted a month or so back. It looks really at home on my toy shelf.
In case anyone is interested, here's the link to my appearance on Fanboy TV:
Look for my name (David DeGrand) under previous episodes and you'll see my interview. If you watch the rest of the segments you'll see me occasionally working on a drawing that they will give away in a future show, you can see the finished piece in the Artist Results section. I'm in the Sub or Flub section as well giving my opinion on various topics. If it's not up on the main page still check out Episode 15 on May 21, 2007 in the archive here:
Thanks guys!

more stupid sketchbook senselessness, and a sticker

A robot, a ghost, a chicken, and a maggot. Seems like I just drew four random things out of a hat and drew them, huh?
There's something about the look on the guy's face that's saying "diggin'" that I find kinda disturbing. But in a good way.
That elephant sure is happy to be dripping snot on that poor whatever-he-is.
A guy with man boobs and a retarded tree stump walked into a bar...
Just on the off chance anyone is interested, this is a sticker that I just got printed up to help promote my little portfolio website thingy. I'll be more than happy to mail one to anybody that requests one on the condition that you display it somewhere where people are sure to ask "Where'd you get that awesome sticker?!?!" E-mail me at mdaviddegrand@gmail.com with your address and I'll get one sent to you ASAP.
