Demon Painter


I did this little ballpoint pen sketch for a friend who sent me a copy of my art book to sign. He's an artist too and I typically draw some kind of artist in the book then. The painting demon is a simple idea but I like it. I don't have to draw in these books but I've told myself I will and I have. The little exercise has given me some nice ideas that I've expanded on later. They're things I wouldn't have come up with had I'd not written the remargue-all-the-books rule for myself. Copies of those drawings are now in their own file and it has gotten pretty thick.

It may be a simple idea, but it was executed well. I really like how he has a slightly humanoid face. Must make it easier to depict concentration.

You're in trouble now! You are going to get 2 dozen books this week requesting personal doodles. Do mine first :)
Love the drawing and the idea. I feel like I look like that when I paint sometimes. Or perhaps I just wish I did.

The problem with anyone sending me a book is that I've got 12 here now to draw in. The turnaround time is 8 to 12 weeks. As you can see from my recent post, I'm now pretty behind on everything. Up until yesterday I couldn't stand to look at a computer screen for more than a few minutes.

Thanks for all the comments. I hope to be somewhat more personable in the near future.
