|December Dr. Sketchy's @ The Wallflower
Missed you guys (if you are, in fact, still around), so I decided to re-post this here. For further updates see my wordpress page: http://jlloydillustration.wordpress.com/
Vancouver's rock n' roll flapper Lola Frost was this month's model, much to our good fort-choon. Haven't done any life drawing in at least a year, so I felt some serious crust on the mojo... but the inspiration provided got it all cooking. The theme of the night was vintage crime noir, something Lola embodied beautifully with her successive choices in wardrobe and dark, smokey elegance.
This is the 1 minute sketch montage. Prismacolour.
Beginning of the 2 minute sessions:( More under the cutCollapse )

|Sketch o' the day
Lady Grimes! From the cover of Ion #79. Can't say I know too much about her tunes, but I'm hoping to catch her this week at the Commodore.

|"But are you sure the dragon doesn't look too emo?"
Just as an addendum to the previous piece: I'm posting this pic to show why I think my art for the pop culture show misses the mark. If you're going to satirize tats on alt babes, you have to go WAYYY out. Any one of these girls could have fit my piece into the end of an angel's nob on her ankle.
Anyways, I lifted this photo from a page called Pinups and Lace http://www.facebook.com/PinupsNLace
. Hope it's considered fair usage. No photo credit as far as I can see.

Met Bobcat Goldthwait on the weekend, ending at least a twenty five year old personal ambition. GREAT guy. He is that searingly funny and smart.
His new film is amazing, too. An anathema to the fatuous ephemeral entertainment currently clogging the theaters, coming in the form of a savage indictment of the spectacle of cruelty masquerading as entertainment in all media.http://www.magnetreleasing.com/godblessamerica/
I caught it's theatrical premiere. A DVD and itunes release is going to follow shortly. SEE it, however you can.

|I wanna wear my smokey bear
While doing image research for a current Chosen Occupation strip I came across a photo of the scenario below. For some reason, it said a lot to me about the the current state of affairs in the grand ol' military machine. Anyways, don't join the army under any circumstances.

The gal in the post below appeared on this stage last Tuesday night. Being five feet from her while she performed one of the most amazing pas de deuxs with an equally imposing, phantasmically statuesque performer was an experience I won't scrape from the retinas anytime soon.
So this was the result of my expected company bailing (well, not technically-- I was given no promises) 'bout an hour before showtime. I decided to study stage design. Pigma Sensei pen .04 with brush. And straight to ink.

|Bunny from a honey from another planet
So if you got nothing to say about my work, feast your surprised eyes on this little baby! A birthday gift from the amazing Rebecca Dart... bestowed upon me near ten years ago now. Not many people give away fully realized masterpieces as a token of friendship, but that is she. Oil on press board, I believe. She's given me many since then but this one has a special place in my heart. Plus it's got a bunny-- in honor of this weekend's holiday nearly no one observes anymore.
Anyways it just happens to be the divine Ms. Dart's birthday tomorrow, and I have little in the way of gifts to bring, parum-puh-pum-pum. But you can all hop over to her tumblr page and wish her the best: http://r-dart.tumblr.com/
Not only will you be treated to more amazing work, but her current post reveals and in-depth look at her working process. Be enlightened by the master!
Love you, T-Dog.

|Is She Not My Girl?
Oh, Sinead. No one else on the planet has churned such mixed emotions in me. You've gone from being a fearless (if guileless) force for public advocacy of personal ethics to the embodiment of excoriating female drama with no off switch... like some endless episode of The View. And you clearly haven't learned a thing with time.
Yet... you were there at the most needed time in my youth, right on the final gasping death of the eighties and my time in high (or low) school. By making your way onto the cd racks in Vernon BC and basic cable, you were one of the eye-openers that saved me from the land of giant perms and miniature ideas-- always paying the full price for doing it.
And at the end of it all there has always been THAT VOICE.
So I wish you luck with the tour and I really want to hear that new album. Maybe you'll find some liberation in song again.
