Dave Grohl & Andrew — Fan Portrait

Dave Grohl & Andrew Lawther Illustration

This year, when my friend Jacque’s hubby met his idol, the fantastic Dave Grohl, she knew of the perfect gift for him to honor this exciting moment.

She had seen the black ink drawings I did in preparation for the Afterhours Canvas Battle and commissioned me to help capture this moment in a similar style.

Overall, this 11″x14″ piece took around 6 hours to complete, done entirely in black ink with Micron and Stabilo fineliners with Sharpie and Copic markers on Strathmore smooth bristol paper.

Inktober 2018

Inktober 2018 Postcards

Inktober is a drawing challenge started by illustrator Jake Parker in 2009. My first Inktober was in 2017 and I decided to join in the fun this year, as well!

This year, I did 31 character designs with Copic markers and Micron and Gelly Roll pens on 4″x 6″ cards. Additionally, I did 3 different character illustrations on my Wacom tablet in Photoshop for the AdobeMAX Inktober contest.

If you are looking to grow your audience, get your work seen, and meet new artists across the world, joining in existing social drawing challenges, like Inktober or MerMay, is a great way to increase your impressions (views) and following!

If you’re interested in owning one of these Inktober originals, I’ll be giving them away to Raven-level patrons, so please subscribe to my Patreon.

Tarot Series I — Krystalline Kweens

This first series in my eventual full tarot deck, titled Krystalline Kweens, debuted at the 2018 Chocolate and Art Show in Austin.

Each portrait is inspired by a card from the Rider-Waite tarot deck, as well as the model herself. The crystal growth on each queen aligns with the stones associated with the card.
