Jazz Classics

Another recently uncovered Lost Jazz Classic from the Homeland Label. The Jazz Bats were/are a trio of Transylvanian troubadours that cut their teeth working with famed Jazz legend Django Reinhardt. This record (Nocturne in Jazz Minor) was a free form Jazz odyssey of the highest order.

Dance to the beat of the drum.

Quick lunchtime work up for a drumming Frankenstein's monster.

The Jazz Bats LP Sleeve sketch.

These Jazz cats are 'The Jazz Bats'... This is a sketch for the LP sleeve for their 1958 classic 'Nocturne in Jazz Minor'.

Lost Jazz Classics...

The Mummy's Lament, b/w Torn Bandage Blues.
Released in 1957 on the revered Homeland label.

A lilting Jazz guitar ballad by the 1100 year old Buddy 'Bandages'. Discovered playing in the Jazz cafes of Egypt by the legendary Dave Brubeck, who was on a 18-30's camping holiday with good friends Eric Clapton and Buddy Guy.

Atomic Age Beauty

Another work up from a long lost sketch from a while back. It feels pretty nice to get a little 'closure' on these images (although this one isn't quite finished yet)... It's getting me back into a groove of creativity and I LIKE IT!!!

Full Moon Flight.

The Harvest moon is up tonight... just right for a midnight ride.


Here's a development 'sketch' of the Black Sabbath style gig poster I drew up recently.

Halloween 2014!

It's almost the season of the witch again... HURRAH! As such, I've been inspired to do some drawing (a rarity round these parts!) Here's a real quick Illustrator sketch up..... and I like it!!!

Gig poster

Here's another new piece of art... this time, for (former MISFIT) DOYLE supporting the mighty (former MISFIT) DANZIG at the Hammerstein Ballroom, NY as part of Danzig's LEGACY tour.

Doyle has such a strong visual appearance so it was a great little exercise in simplification, using repeat shapes...

Really pleased with this too!
