If you just don't have enough Bill Carman in your life then here's your chance to have me in your pocket or purse. Another company, izozzi, has put my work on skins. This group is local and does skins for i products; iphone etc.. Just starting with me but there are a few choices. I understand that there will be more soon. So go have a look.

I pound my guys over the head about drawing from life. Draw from life to learn to draw. When you start feeling comfortable about your drawing abilities then you can use cool photos which people send to you to draw from. Actually in a pinch drawing from a photo now and then can help one learn but cannot replace drawing from life. Translation from 3 to 2d is such an important thing to learn and make instinctive. These were all done in different sizes with a ballpoint pen. I wanted to show what the line looks like when it is enlarged. It holds a beautiful texture and personality.

Perhaps add a little color

In a pinch you can make an illustration from your drawings. I just used the "nose bleed" illustration filter in photoshop and this is ready to send off to the client.

Stop the Bears

These bears just seem to keep leaking from my brain. This is on antique paper.

Stuff of Legend

Another drawing. But this drawing goes to someone in trade. You never know, if you have a cool book that I like you too can have an original Bill Carman drawing. Yippeee! If you see this KJ you'll know what a lucky person you are. Seriously, I got a cool book out of the deal. Now if someone can come up with the first or second edition of James Jean's first Process Recess book there's a painting in it for you.

Drawing Some Bears

Just keep trying different things. I'll keep posting them until the world begs me to stop.

Teeny Narwhal

Hate to push my MicoVisions piece down but gotta move on. I've been doing drawings for my show here in September. This one is called: "There's a Teeny Narwhal Stickin' out of Your Head." I've no clue what it means but it must be deep, right?
