DSC 20 Masato Sakai (edited)

I've been battling colds and neck/back pain this weekend and thus limited output for the last few days. Also spent much of yesterday registering my webcomic (Hexenringe @ with a bunch of websites to try to get some regular readers. 
So this morning I'm jumping back on the horse with this line experiment of Masato Sakai (堺雅人) of 'Mita-San' 'Hanzawa Naoki' and 'Legal High' fame. 

This was drawn with a grey brushpen while on the train. 

I decided to add this shaded version to show my improvements. 
Better, huh?
The ink flow was uneven in this pen so lines would be heavier than I wanted. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!

Face Your Demons Poster

I've retouched an old piece for Illustration Friday not realizing Reflect was last week's theme. Oh well.
On reflecting:
I spent way too much time reflecting and not enough time doing when I was much younger, but I have to admit that the experience hasn't been a total loss.
Experience is still experience even if it's in your head and I'm a lot more prepared to be an active artist, husband, and dad than I ever was before.
If you're going to spend a lot of time being haunted by your demons, might as well get chummy with them. Running away from them doesn't do you or those around you any favors.
And who knows... they might be AWESOME!

Drawn for Illustration Friday. Finally filled another page in my larger moleskine sketchbook.
Was so busy doing this piece, I almost forgot to upload Tomoko's artwork to the Hexenringe webcomic.

DSC Danny Trejo, Coolest Badass Ever

Watching Dead in Tombstone starring Danny Trejo, I was inspired to focus on this drawing more than the movie. Still, I'm glad Señor Trejo gets to be the star these days.
