Gig 11/19/08

I haven't taken any gig pics in a while. Here's some from last night:
This guy was drunk. Very drunk.
This gentleman was great. I killed a whole Chartpak on him.

He said he wanted more hair.

Links Spotlight: Sebastian Kruger

On your right, you will see a group of links. These links are reserved for inspiring artists and close friends. From time to time I'm going to feature someone from the links. Today is Mr. Sebastian Kruger.

When it comes to caricature, there is Sebastian Kruger and then there's everyone else. He's a master, plain and simple. I have a signed print of one of his Keith Richards caricatures proudly displayed in my living room.
His current works are of particular interest to me. He did a series of blues musicians. Check out his B.B. King:

Here's John Lee Hooker:

Here's Sebastian and I at the 2003 NCN convention.

Be sure to check out Sebastian's link to the right, and stay tuned for the next Links Spotlight.

Durkinworks Blog: Now with labels.

Just a little blog maintenance; I went through all the posts and labeled each one of them. Now they are organized into different categories. If you click the "label" at the bottom of a post, you will be redirected to other related posts in that category. Have fun!

"Cursed" Jack Sparrow.

My daughter Kathy and I were re-watching Pirates of the Caribbean. We love Jack Sparrow. Here's my version of Jack in his "cursed" form.

Jack and the Beanstalk.

One of my favorite stories as a kid. I would love to illustrate a children's book based on this story.

This is an idea I had while I was drawing at the Wizard World convention in Chicago. I want to do a series of mashups involving animated characters and comic-book characters. Here's Popeye and Wolverine: ...and Fred Flintstone and Hellboy.

What's the story?

Okay, this one started with the old guy on the left. Then I drew the old woman and then the family in the middle. I haven't the slightest clue what is happening in this picture. Maybe you have some ideas?

Look who's back in town.

These are two of my favorite people in the world, my mom and dad. They're visiting with me for a week. This picture was taken when I went up to Wisconsin for Thanksgiving in 2003 (hence the vacation-goatee.) I would expect us to get into some sort of trouble at some point during the visit, maybe even rumble with a rival gang. Don't even THINK about knocking that coffee out of mom's hand.
