Dance


I found this drawing, from about 1977 (I think), in my garage. It is too large to submit the whole thing. I am too busy for a new drawing so I submit this as my Illustration Friday drawing of the week.

I agree, the style is reminiscent of the comics of the 30's... early Batman, Spectre, that sort of thing.

I have to admit, though, that the first thing I thought of was "Al Cabong!!!!!"

Tim said...

Penelope; IT IS!

Marci-thanks

Joe-Here I am almost thirty years later trying to master the ink and brush technique. Talk about a slow learner!

Woo! That's a fun piece! Do you have more stuff from 1977?

Tim said...

CSC-Unfortunately, most of my stuff from then was destroyed in a flood. That was the only one that I could salvage. I guess I'll just have to draw more!

You have more patience than I do. I have been told I have the talent but I do not have the attention span and patience to actually draw complex drawings. I kind of envy your discipline.

Tim said...

SR- No disipline involved, it just flows off the fingers. I do sometimes throw away several preliminary sketches before I capture the image in rough form. Occasionally, I'll screw up a drawing while applying the ink (Inking, in comics parlance). Keep trying on your artwork! Stop immediately if you feel that you are forcing it because then it is no longer fun, and that (to me) is what drawing is all about!

The dude looks angry, man!

Hey, Tim, Asshead is back - Your buddy from the Belgian Congo! He left a couple choice comments including one at my "Do You K now This Woman" post. ;o)>

Hong Fu here agains

Many thinks I feel when look at drewling of hat man. Is anger? Is daring? Not of fear, more cunning and fight. Make for excite Hong Fu.

Regard less is handsom man. VERY handsom. Stuning even. Make Hong Fu loins stir. And not gay even!

Wonder what is under picture? Is tight buttock clenching in anger? Or fear? Is muscles in legs clench like snake of about strike?

This draw of man is same as see with eyes poetry. Glad post to interwebs and make same.
