Inktober 2021

I did the drawing exercise Inktober again this year. Working from a prompt list, the idea is to draw every day for the month of October.

My rules this year were:

  • Everything in nib pens and india ink
  • Colouring digitally is okay

It was a good run. Here are the drawings! (also on Instagram @swizzlestudio)

Sleeve Art

Tattoo of CH3's The Bellwether album cover. Based on artwork by Rob Elliott/Swizzle Studio

Last year I designed cover for legendary California punk band CH3’s record The Bellwether.

CH3’s singer/guitarist Mike Magrann just sent me a photo of fan Rev. Paul Bearer’s new tattoo featuring the artwork. Great ink job by Tony Becker from Skin City!

Here’s some CH3 for your rock ‘n’ roll enjoyment!

Tiki party paintings

Our friends John and Momo threw a surprise tiki-themed birthday party for our pal Sven. I painted a bunch of decorations on newsprint to help take their bungalow to the tropics.

Here’s a sample (warning for slight nudity):
