Tyler Childers : COUNTRY SQUIRE album art

Tony

It may come as no surprise, but I love stories. I love telling stories, and I love listening to storytellers. And when it comes to music, no genre satisfies my craving for stories like well-crafted Country music. A couple years ago, I discovered the music of fellow Kentuckian, TYLER CHILDERS, and I was hooked. At a concert, I managed to get one of my Li’l Baphomet pins into his hands, and shortly after, he reached out about working on an album cover. After a LOT of spitballing and volleying ideas, we cooked up something that I feel has a nice visual punch, but also has enough conceptual meat on its bones to investigate further. So here it is, my cover for Tyler’s upcoming album, COUNTRY SQUIRE.

Rest in Peace, JACK DAVIS.

Tony

It breaks my heart to know that Jack Davis, last of the EC Comics legends, is gone.

Though our personal interactions were few, they will always be held among my most cherished memories. Jack Davis was THE cartoonist of the 20th century, and even until the end, he remained a consummate professional and southern gentleman. The last time I called a few months back, his wife had told me he may not be up to a conversation because he wasn't feeling well. He happily took my call and though I could tell from his speech he'd recently had a stroke, he didn't rush me off the line and invited me to stay in touch. The few phone conversations we had fundamentally changed my entire outlook on cartooning and life in general.

Mr Davis is the single most influential and inspirational figure to me as an artist. When i was a little kid, probably no more than 4 or 5 years old, he was the first artist i could recognize by style alone from his work in MAD Magazine. He left an indelible mark upon me before i was even old enough to read, let alone understand what was happening in my psyche. Last year, I did my first work for MAD, which was a Davis homage mock "Tales From The Crypt" cover. A lifetime of obsessing over his lines and stealing all my best moves from him had still not prepared me for attempting to enter his headspace as a craftsman, and the entire exercise profoundly deepened my appreciation for what he had done.

While tonight I mourn the loss of perhaps the greatest talent cartooning has ever known, I personally celebrate the depth and magnitude of his work every day.

Sketch of the Day! RAT FINK

Tony

The other day, i did a broadcast where i sketched up a big pile of 5-Minute requests.  This one features Big Daddy Ed Roth's RAT FINK, which i revisited for a couple minutes with the pen for a little extra grunge.

8.5" x 11", inks on card stock.

Sketch of the Day! ABE SAPIEN

Tony

I love HELLBOY, so I thought I'd bust out an ABE SAPIEN head shot for today!

8.5" x 11, inks (w/ Raphael brushes)  on card stock

The original art for this piece can be found over in the STORE.

Sketch of the Day! REN & STIMPY

Tony

REN & STIMPY was one of the most influential cartoons of my generation. All our minds were warped by John K's heightened psychodrama and macro-lens detail shots. Here's my small tribute to their greatness.

9" x 8.5", inks (w/ Raphael brushes) and Copic Marker on chipboard.

The original art for this piece can be found over in the STORE.

Sketch of the Day! PIGPEN

Tony

As a filthy hillbilly child myself, i've always considered Peanuts' PIGPEN a kind of kindred spirit.

This sketch is a actually Bonus Two-Fer, because i accidentally drew it on the back of some life drawing sketches from the Cincy ComiCon Drink & Draw! You can click the additional thumbnails in the STORE entry to see the sketches.

8.5" x 9", inks (w/ Raphael brushes) and Copic Marker on chipboard.
As always, the original art for this piece can be found over in the STORE.

Sketch of the Day! ATTACK ON TITAN

Tony

After nearly a month on the road, I'm back with a new Sketch of the Day!

Today's sketch is based on the manga/anime mega-hit ATTACK ON TITAN. Been itching to get back to the sketches, and far be it from me to not want to draw a skinless giant.

This piece is 6.25" x 10.25", inks and Copic marker on chipboard.
The original art for this piece is up over in the STORE.

Sketch of the Day! THE GRINCH

Tony

i had a lot of fun with my Christmas edition of Sketch of the Day, featuring a triple-decker toadstool and sauerkraut sandwich, with arsenic saaaaauce! This will be my last Sketch until a couple days after Christmas, then I'll resume business as usual, every weekday at noon, except on major holidays.

this one's 7.5" x 8.5", markers on chipboard. The original's in the STORE!
