It's Fraggin' Time!


Thank you guys for the really cool comments! There are a lot of new bloggers that have stopped by, and I promise to visit your sites! It's really cool to see this whole network of amazing artists out there workin' you know? Pretty sweet. Finished this colored piece last night, in the middle of the dining room, alone, the whole family asleep. (Not a creature was stirring....you get the idea.) It's a pretty introverted process, this whole drawing thing. But I guess most people consider me quite introverted, so I guess it works out. ;) Drawing taps me into my childhood experiences, I guess, closer than anything. It brings me back to memories of me sitting there as a kid in the middle of a dining table coming up with dreams. It's a pretty cool feeling. Anyways, enough of the babbling. Gotta get to work. Here's to more drawings guys! Cheers!

Great pic ;your Lobo has the same homungous built of your sketches of Conan or the Hulk but it conveys a totally different feel ... you captured the essence opf the character and didn't ape Bisley like most guys do when drawing it ...
Bravo !

Marcelo Braga said...

Thanks, man! Your blog is awsome. I like the CONAN and the Hellboy with white highlights! I'll keep checking! :)

Hey Joe,

thanks for the comment man! i fell in love with michael turner's style a while back and have gone on a crazy spree to find all the issues to fathom, i'm almost done getting them all, but he keeps making a new spin-off!

lobo is the bomb!

Shawn Crystal said...

john said...

Nice job Joe. This reminds me of the Lobo hologram I had when I use to collect trading cards.

marcobucci said...

very cool work! I like the structural quality of your stuff, and the portrait of your wife is well done, even if she says the likeness is off. It works for us!

Hello!
Thank you for visiting my blog Joseph.

Kelly Conley said...

Sweet! I love Lobo! Great gun for him. You're so right about drawing being such an introverted pass-time. I feel terrible whenever Im working on a piece and I can just feel my girlfriend staring at the back of my head. But drawing's just so much fun! Keep up the great sketches.

Roberto Zaghi said...

It must be pleasant to sit at the table at night and draw and have such feeling that reminds you when you were a child, dreaming and drawing... I envy you a bit for that!
Great Lobo.
