Update

I've been balancing my production between personal work for upcoming group shows, illustration and fiction writing. Balance is hard to achieve, especially when you get seduced by one particular project. This week is was short stories. I finished two that were, sort of, almost there. I might drop one here, to celebrate the first anniversary... Continue Reading →

Antipodes Project

Hot off the drawing table, a new ink drawing for the Antipodes Project originally started by artist Ben Tolman. Visit Joe MacGown's blog for a good background on the project. I really enjoy creating these intensely packed drawings. I should also mention that my drawing Hypnos is on display this weekend at Copro Gallery as... Continue Reading →

Walking Backwards 2003

Every now and then on this blog I surface a drawing from the depths of my hard drive. This one, from 2003, was done at a time when I was playing with the idea of doing comics, or a comic anyway. Other things came along and the idea was abandoned, partially for the sake of... Continue Reading →

Symphonist 5

Symphonist No.5 is a silverpoint miniature (4"x3"). It's one of an ongoing series. Silverpoint lends itself beautifully to miniature work due to the precision you can get with the silver stylus. Over time, this drawing will darken as the particles of silver trapped by the ground begin to tarnish.

Water Column & Forager

This is a new drawing called WATER COLUMN. It is available for sale on my webstore. WATER COLUMN is an original pen and ink pointillism drawing by Richard. It was created with .18 & .25 Rotring pens on 200 G Cranson Watercolour Paper. The page size is 8.5" x 11." This piece, FORAGER, is also... Continue Reading →

Nightdress

I did this new piece as a break between illustrations. Sometimes I just get images that I have to get out of my head. This was one. It is conceptually similar to a watercolour that I did earlier in the year called HUNGER. This one is a bit darker in tone. When I get a... Continue Reading →

Pale Agent

This is a new drawing called Pale Agent - evolved to peer through knotholes. I'm currently working on illustrations for a new book, which this has nothing to do with. Later in October I will be at a local event called Art O' Con, with some new prints. For those that might be interested, Pale... Continue Reading →

A Grotesque

Dictionary.com defines grotesque as fantastic in the shaping and combination of forms,as in decorative work combining incongruous human and animal figures with scrolls,foliage,etc. This new piece is the first of many I'm doing on a beautiful block of 140lb Arches coldpress paper. My go-to paper is their hotpress, but the texture of the coldpress is... Continue Reading →

Ink Drawings

I'm busy creating new drawings. I just finished the top one, Wingless, today. I'll be posting it in my webstore this weekend along with my drawing Prong - see earlier post. The other drawing Irridis was done for a friend. Richard.

This is a new drawing just finished today. I've had this creature in my head for the last couple of weeks and needed to let it out. What interested me about this subject was the questions between the main figure and the weird cyclopean pupa thing on its back. Is it a child of the... Continue Reading →
