hey im glad to see somebody going back and digging around. alot of those early drawings were done way before i came to DA. i didnt get alot of attention when i first got going. not that i get that much now but its considerably more than when i started.most of the time i spend a good 8 hrs working on one piece. if i can i do it in 1 day. but generally it spans 2 to 3 days. and ive come to size everything now so it'll fit my scanner. which would be a 9 1/2 " x 11 ". sometimes its 8"x10". ive kinda got a one track mind when it comes to drawing. something will get in my head and it just knaws at me till i get it done :) im always tellin myself " you gotta slow down ".

ya me it takes forever to finish a piece....most of my 9.5 x11's take me anywhere from 2 days to 2 weeks...just depends on what kinda piece im doing....ive only have 1 big piece completed its 16x20 inches i believe...i took me a month to finish it....i try to keep a one track mind...its hard sometimes because ill get a kickass idea for another drawing and want to start on it so bad....but if i do that than ill never finish my current drawing....right now im working on my 2nd big piece...16x20inches....its been 3 weeks and i got 50% done....im slow!!!

dang i sure know the feeling of a good idea and having to wait on it. sometimes i purposly slow down and try not to finish it soo fast. i see in your drawings alot more details so i can see why you spend the time on them. im sad to say not as talented when it comes to drawing " things ". i just throw some lines down, twist em and turn em and thats about the extent of it.

detail can be very tedious at times...recently i tried experimenting with other media's like spraypainting and oil and acrylic painting...defianetly have ALOT to learn if i want to get good at that. but working on my new big piece it just gets sooo tedious at times working line work and filling in with marker...i actually took a break one night and started a new project on a BIG piece of wood with spraypaint but i defianetly made sure i went back to my original project....it was nice to take a break from all the detail and do something more "loose".

everyone has there specialty as far as what they do best.....considering you focus on one time of work you still seem to keep it pretty interesting...

what do you do with your finished pieces ? i have only one of mine hanging up and that was the wifes doing. she thumbtacked it to the wall next to the bed .i think its been there for 10 yrs now. all my others are in a pile awaiting a photo album placement. i do have the cow heads hanging but mostly in the basement for lack of a place to store them. spraypaint on wood sounds interesting, i used to route out nameplates with wood and that was pretty cool then i would handpaint them. i tend to experiment more in the winter months when im not working so many hours.well i better shut up for awhile :)

well i have a box that i got in the mail and it just seemed the perfect size to store art....so when i finish a piece i have these clear scrapbooking sheets and i slip my finished piece into the sheet....to protect it over the years you know? i defianetly want to have all my drawings years from now...so i can look back at them and see how i progressed over the years....plus i think itll be really cool to show my son someday....well not all of them for obvious reasons...but im hoping he will like to draw or create art just like me so it will be cool someday if he's my age and im in my forties and hes really good at art and i can show hime my old pieces from now...i dont have ALL my drawings i ever done but i have a lot...im not 100% sure but i think my oldest piece i have is like from 1997 i think? and i was 12 then...so i have drawings going back 10 years ago....one of my pieces i plan on doing after i finish my current project is a recreation of a drawing i did in like 2000 maybe? so im going to redraw it and compare and see how far ive come...i cant wait until its finished...but it will probably be a while as i have sooooo many ideas i want to do but i cant decide whats next after my current project.....but i guess i should shutup too....haha....i could go on and on and on about art....thats how much of a passion it is for me....

and oh about the spraypaint thing....ya it is alot of fun....to me its opposite of drawing....drawing is so technical with lines and detail and keeping your hand steady....with spraypaint you can kind of loosen up and be more free....its a fun way to wind down from some drawing....with some stencils and practice and your type of art i bet you could make some large(size), killer pieces....and spraypaint is cheap.... .87 cents a can at walmart i believe...and my drawing skills surpass my spraypaint skills....but its still fun...ok i PROMISE im shuting up....haha

your creating family heirlooms. i have several pen drawings that were given to me when my uncle passed away. he is the one that i followed everywhere and watched as he drew things. he was my inspiration. i think i have a dozen or so of his drawings and i still look at them all the time he was so good :). his expertise was the 60s style poster art. concert venues and posts. we lived in marina california which is only a few miles from the monterey county fairgrounds which was where they held the monterey pop festival. hendrix mommas and the pappas the who. i got to see em all. he took me and i was only 10 at the time but it forever changed me. eric burdon even had a song called monterey. i have the original 45 that i bought the next yr when it came out. its all worn out and it plays like crap but im not ever getting rid of it. well now its my turn to shut up. lol. musics always been my thing as you can tell by how i use it in my drawings :)
