Ballpoint Sketchbook 3

That's David Thomas singer for AvantPunk act Pere Ubu on the left above the, er, heiny, and on the right a tribute to Wally Wood one of my favorite comic artists, who, alas, came to a very sad end. The other page is yet another drawing of Nina Hagen looking adorable on a TV performance of her first single "Du Hast den Farbfilm vergessen"  That's on youTube if you're curious to see it...but be forewarned, it's totally a corny novelty thing if you're allergic to that kind of stuff.


  1. Thanks, Brian! Thanks for stopping by!

  2. ahhhhhhhhrrrrg!!!! so cool.... i love your line paper art!!!

  3. It's fun to do, and it's something I've been doing since I was in junior high, but it does take a long time to draw these. I was thinking about if this could be taken to a finished style, but I think it's too labor intensive. There's a a lot of cool ball point work out there though, it's even got a name -"Biro Art".
    Anyway thanks for generous comments!
