LISA HANAWALT RIDING A CAMEL. For the TCAF 10th Anniversary Art Show. TCAF is the best show of its kind in the world, and I’m excited to be a part of this show. Good Lord Willing, I’ll have a few more pieces for it—all of featured guests of the show—depending on how fast I can ink this weekend. If you’re not already familiar with Lisa Hanawalt, then by all means, let me make your day.
MAYNARD FERGUSON, TRUMPETEST. One of the twenty dollar sketches I do; you can buy one here, and see all the ones to date here. Subject suggestion: “Maynard Ferguson”. This one was tough because I wasn’t familiar with Ferguson, a Canadian trumpeter and band leader. And then after familiarizing myself, it wasn’t my cup of tea really—to be honest, I just don’t like trumpet very much, especially in the wild upper registers that big band trumpeters like to squeak into. I struggled with what to draw until I decided to just get rid of the part I didn’t like. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how ideas work.
DHARBMAS. A reminder, considering the day, that I’m having a sale on everything in my shop. All orders $50 or more get 35% off everything, including one-hour drawings, or even drawings like the one above (a $20 “fourth”, in this case featuring the greatest American composer of all time), or even whatever. Just enter discount code DHARBMAS at checkout.
THE SALE will go on through Christmas, but if you want me to draw something for you for receipt *before* Christmas, I suggest buying sooner rather than later. When I get past my ability to reliably fill orders on time—which is not far away—I’ll mark those drawings sold out.
AND IF you’re someone who’s ordered something from me before, or a friend of mine, I’ll stick an extra something in the package for you as a thank you. I have some illo originals, prints given to me by some of my fancy artist friends, odds and ends, or just an extra one of my prints.
AND IN ADVANCE, thank you.
JOHN C. REILLY, STEP BROTHER. For the upcoming Stepbrothers show at Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles. John C. Reilly has a deceptively hard face to draw, like a guy with a mean face that’s all sweet on the inside.
TOM WAITS. The 150th of my “fourth” sketches, which are basically a drawing on 1/4 of a piece of cream cardstock. You can buy one here, and see all the ones to date here. Subject suggestion for this one was—can you guess??—“Tom Waits.”
