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.

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.

TWO DRAWINGS OF CHARLES BUKOWSKI.

"The trouble with these people
is that their cities
have never been bombed
and  their mothers have never been told
to shut up.”

—from “Trouble,” from the “Hostage” recording
San Pedro, 1980

WITH THIS DOG, I THEE WED. An “Hour Drawing,” available to purchase here, and the 200+ set of them so far here. Subject suggestion for this one was “Chicago hot dog”. 
I had to figure out what goes in a Chicago hot dog, and it’s crazy. Whole pickle spears, multiple peppers, tomato slices—it’s like a vinegar salad on top of a weiner, loosely held together by an inedibly giant roll. I had one a couple years ago outside the Field Museum—“a real Chicago hot dog!” I thought, excited to be in Chicago and about to look at a bunch of dinosaur skeletons—and then a minute later my face shirt front was covered in hot dog toppings. How many long things with skins are you expected to be able to bite through at once in Chicago? Seven? Eleven? More than eleven?
Here is my perfect hotdog, are you ready? It’s very simple. Take one (1) crummy, cheap, steamed, wrinkled white bread hot dog bun; squirt a smallish amount of mayonnaise THAT’S RIGHT MAYONNAISE into the bun crotch; place one (1) weiner, or “frankfurter” if you speak one of the Germanic languages, into the mayoed bun crotch. The mayo acts as a delicious glue for your dog. On top of your one (1) dog and one (1) bun put a small amount of yellow mustard, twice that amount of ketchup (catsup if you’re a Francophone), a light dusting of white onions, and a little relish to one side. Serve in groups of three; eat as quickly as possible, before your stomach realizes what you’re doing to it and closes up shop. Burp your barbaric yawp all throughout the day; you’ve earned it.
