It’s a coloring book page! It’s a poster! It’s wall paper! It’s a hat! It’s a broach! It’s a dessert topping! It’s a floor wax!
This is kind of fun. I’m designing a page for a future coloring book. I’m starting with the original ball point pen sketch, progressing to the re-draw in Photoshop. Since I did each figure on a separate layer, it amuses me to post each figure in isolation. I hope it amuses you as well.
This is a work in progress. I present three stages: 1) The original drawing, done as a masturbation aid in Erotic Sketchbook A, in 1979. 2) The line drawing redraw, completed this morning. 3) My colored version, with which I am not satisfied, but I need to do my daily post.
These are drawings from one of my earliest surviving erotic sketch books. The sketchbook in question was filled in 1978/1979, when I was in my second year of college. These drawings were executed while I was still a virgin, before I had tactilely experienced another man’s body (especially, the bodies of the father figures that were my primary erotic obsession). Lacking first hand experience, I assumed men in their late 40’s, 50’s and early 60’s would have the bodies of men in their 20’s and 30s.
Later, when I started actually getting laid, I discovered this was inaccurate, but it didn’t dissuade me from my preference. Instead I became a connoisseur of drooping flesh, distended abdomens and penises that couldn’t get reliably erect.
To be honest, I find these drawings, done in my late teens, somewhat embarrassing. But Robert Crumb (one of my heroes) has posted his early artwork, so I figure I should as well.
“RED NECKS IN LOVE”
This is a drawing from one of my earliest surviving erotic sketchbooks, from 1979. I had just turned 20 years old around the time of this drawing. I was a closeted virgin. My primary objects of lust were men of my father’s age, red necks, working class. One of my first crushes was on Rod Steiger’s sheriff character in “In The Heat Of The Night”. The pair of guys in this drawing could have been extras in that movie.
This is drawn with ball point pens, in a recent journal sketchbook
Possible character design for some future possible animation or comic book project.
This illustration is based on the taoist “Ying Yang” symbol. It’s called “Ying Yang 2” because it’s the second time I’ve tried to evoke this symbol when depicting a love-making couple. This time, I drew the image entirely using Prismacolor colored pencils.
The title of this piece is “Night Delivery”. I wonder if the customer will tip.
I drew this while watching a dvd of the pilot episode of Twin Peaks, Season 1. There’s no connection with the David Lynch opus other than time proximity.
