Frankie & Nancy

A drawing I did in 2008 from an old 40s movie magazine: it's Frank and Nancy Sinatra! Can't you see?

Boris Karloff & Vincent Price in THE RAVEN

Here's a sketch done after watching Roger Corman's 1963 version of The Raven, which is one of my favorite of his Poe movies. I always preferred Vincent Price's hamminess over Boris Karloff's lispy ways.

This freak of nature chick is losing her batteries at the wrong time.

Blind Willie McTell

Ah Blind Willie! Definitely one of my favorite bluesmen. When my friend Young Sebastian turned me on to this guy, I loved the voice, guitar playing and themes of this dude from the 20s, 30s, 40s and beyond . Sketch from around 2004, while killing time before going out drinking. Which was appropriate.

The Tooth Guy

In 2004, I remember mindlessly sketching this image while waiting for a friend to show up. One year later I colored it.

Ortholock Evil Head

Sketch from Sept 2009. Since the word "ortholock" appears on the page, I guess that means that I drew this at the old workplace.

This is the first oil painting I ever did, and probably the first painting ever! This could be from 2003 or 04.

Bela Lugosi aka Dracula

I drew this, as well as other horror movie icons, for Felino Bytes in 2006 which was exposed at the Centre Culturel Aberdeen in Moncton NB for a week in Nov 2006. Obviously nobody bought it, so I gave the whole collection to my buddy Bruce in Boston, to include in his back yard Horror Shack.

Marijuana Girl

This is a sketch of the chick who experiences "drug-crazed abandon" on the poster of Reefer Madness (1936). I did this one probably while talking to Marlo at the MGL studio in 2004. I had it on my bulletin board for years.

Bad Move Brown

This is taken from a sketchbook page from Sept 2009... bloody Manson guy under the spell, as usual.

The Skull

I'm not sure if this is acrylic or oil, I forget, because it's from 2005. I painted this one night to practice. It was exposed at a tapas bar on St-Denis for a week or so in 2005.

Sunday, November 8, 2009


This was drawn during Astral days (2000)... probably while waiting for a crappy cartoon scene to render and listening to Aldi talk my ear off about his 78rpm record collection.

Coffee idiot

Sketch from around 2004. I think I was loosening up for the Hillbilly BBQ comic.

John Lee Williamson

"Lord have mercy"!
Those were the last words of bluesman Sonny Boy Williamson, who kicked the bucket in 1948 after a mugging in his home town Chicago. On his way home from a show no less! This is a late night 2005 drawing
