FASCINATING RHYTHM.
5” x 7”, ink and watercolor on bristol. Warmup drawing from a sketch of this very straight-backed drummer I saw the other day.

THE NYMPH.
Last week’s figure drawing model was awkward and a little shy, and seemed pretty new to the whole posing thing, but one of the last poses of the session she struck this banal pose—honestly, my favorite kind to draw—and suddenly took on a regal mien. I redrew it out of my sketchbook and added some vegetation to give it the maximum Earth Goddess flavor (my goal at all times.
I think some times about starting a Boring Figure Drawing group. Just regular people, all shapes and sizes, fully clothed, sitting in chairs. Drawing beautiful naked women has gotten pretty boring. I want to draw some fat old men. I want to draw middle-aged women with beak noses wearing clothes with a lot of patterns on them. Dare to dream, Young Artist! 
UPDATE! I forgot to mention that I’m selling this for $100 shipping included. If you want it—email me at dustyATdharbinDOTcom and I’ll tell you how to do it, honey!

I decided not to label this drawing because my conflicting self-images are unhealthy enough. Am I disgusting? Am I fabulous? I don’t even know anymore.

Favorite transformation is them fingazzzz

The Wrath of Shockwave, by M. Dawson

I like Shockwave’s tricky move of sneaking up behind people. Optimus Prime doesn’t know what he’s in for!

Is this the best comic I’ve read all year?!?

MEN DRAWING WOMAN. 
I wish I had put little sweat beads all over all the men’s faces. 5” x 7”, pencil and ink and acrylic ink washes on bristol. Hanging in the new show at Gallery Twenty-Two in Charlotte, classily entitled “Just Another Naked Monday”. If you’re around Charlotte this weekend, come to the opening Saturday night! I have 10 pieces in the show, at least 5 of which I’m VERY proud of. If you guess which one I’m least proud of, I’ll let you buy me a beer.

A small comic I did for the NYT Private Lives blog. This is the probably the first comic I’ve done since I was 5 years old and I’m happy I got to do it for something close to my heart. Many thanks to my AD Sarah Williamson at the Times.

THE FIGURE DRAWERS. 11” x 14”, blue, red, and regular old pencil, pen and ink, and acrylic ink washes on bristol. For the show opening this Saturday at Gallery Twenty-Two in Charlotte. I have around ten pieces in the show, all drawn on site at the weekly figure drawing session, then fiddled with and painted on at home. If you’re anywhere in the area, I’d love to see you there—they have a fantastic selection of beers, so come get tipsy with me!

SPINOSAURUS!
The big one, the egg-layer, brood hen of blood, towering predator of the Cretaceous. I’ve been drawing dinosaurs for months for a project I’m way behind on, but which will be… pretty great once finished. Look for it later this year, around a hundred or more drawings like this, but surrounded by plants and colors and very nice ink and swank paper and two covers and your hands.
