Cyclops!

Here’s another one of those posters I did with Marks-A-Lot to advertise the movies we showed the kids at the recreation center. The black ink is faded and the poster board is yellowing and stained.

It Came From Beneath The Sea!

Sunday, June 4th, 2017

Back in my previous life we would show movies to the kids at the recreation center. This was before tapes and DVDs. Before Blockbuster, Netflix, etc. We’d use a biggo projector and actual 16mm film and show them on the wall until we built a homemade canvas screen. The kids would sit on tumbling mats we spread around on the floor.

I would make posters to let them know what movie was coming up. I managed to save a couple of them. Here’s one. The colors have faded and the poster board is turning yellow.

Looking At You

Here’s a really, really old drawing I did with a Marks-a-Lot (felt tip marker). You may have to actually get up out of your chair, and look at this from a distance to recognize it. I did it while looking through a magnifying glass. You can now easily do the same thing on a computer.

Mod Bod 2016 and 1970

I don’t usually post nudes on this site but I’m making an exception for this one. While moving things around in my studio I came across a very old drawing that I had done way back in 1970. It was done with Marks-a-Lot on poster board. It actually won a first place ribbon at the State Fair of Texas.
Not surprisingly, it hasn’t held up very well. I decided to re-draw it on the computer. Here it is (scroll down to see the original):

Here is the original. The colors are quite faded and the background has turned yellow. In some ways that makes it more interesting.

Abstract #2

Monday, January 12th, 2015

Wow, this is an old one:
A study in design for art class way back in college. Since it was done with Marks-a-Lot the ink has faded over the decades. It was titled “Abstract #2.” I wonder whatever happened to #1.
