beards and bosch

Sorry about the lack of updates once again, I've been working on some really cool and top secret projects that I hope I can share sometime soon. Until then, enjoy more sketchbook pages. More sweat and stubble, and body hair, yuck.
I really enjoy drawing ugly and weird people (big surprise, right?). The old guy on the top part of the right page was inspired by a particularly unpleasant fellow I saw giving someone hell at a grocery store.

On the left page I was inspired by some Hieronymus Bosch characters. Seriously, that guy had an imagination the likes of which this world has never seen before or since. I was also in the mood to draw weird facial hair on the right page, the handlebar moustache is a fashion trend I feel is far overdue in its return. Thanks for lookin' folks!

and we're back!

Well, the wife and I are about 75% moved into the new house. Still have a lot to unpack (including the art table and all my drawing supplies), but I finally got the computer hooked up with internet, so I can bring you awesome folks some new stupid doodles!

Another collection of miserable sweating souls. Perhaps I am subconciously doodling the damned?

I was looking through some old book of Renaissance woodcuts and saw these dudes wearing these funky cone shaped hats. I really liked the look of them and started putting them on my weirdos. A new fashion trend will surely begin soon.

You folks just TRY and find another sketchblog with Batman and Gumby on the same spread!
If any artists out there are interested in doing an art trade with me, please e-mail me at mdaviddegrand@gmail.com to set up the details. I recently did one with the awesome Chris Houghton (check out the art we traded on his blog here:
