Painting Red Rocker Sammy Hagar

Strange Brew

 I'm currently working on this oil painting, 18x24, of Sammy Hagar based on a photo by fellow Redhead Pam Neavel. I approached this piece with the idea of making it loose and -style. It's only taken me 2-3 hours and I'm almost done. 

I'll post the finished painting....when it's finished.

Keep On Rockin' (it's an early Sammy Hagar song)

 I've been working on this friggin' drawing for a few months off and on. It's 24"x18" graphite on mounted paper. I haven't drawn solo Sammy Hagar in a while. 

Gotta say...I kinda hate drawing hair. And guitars. And hands. At least there's no guitar in this one.

Full Circle

 I've been working on a LOT of Van Halen artwork since the passing of Eddie Van Halen in 2020, but I've focused on the Sammy Hagar years, because that's my guy.

I've also done multiple drawings and paintings of Sammy Hagar. This is the current oil painting I'm working on, of Sammy's latest band, Sammy Hagar and the Circle featuring Vic Johnson (of the Waboritas and the Busboys), Jason Bonham (from BONHAM, Foreigner and countless other bands), and Michael Anthony (Van Halen and Chickenfoot).

I still have to add Michael Anthony to the painting, but this is what I have so far

Oyl Painting

 I just finished a new Popeye series painting of Olive Oyl. 8x10 canvas. It was a quickie painting. I'll have it for sale in my Etsy shop soon (it'll take a while for shipping: it has to dry).

Take Me Back (Deja Vu)

 I found this drawing I did in my high school art class almost 30 years ago. I drew it sometime between 1992 and 1995. Just graphite pencil on paper. We had to wrap the artwork in plastic, hence the reflections.

Romita tribute

 The other day news broke that comic book legend John Romita Sr passed away at the age of 93. He's famously known as the guy who took over The Amazing Spider-Man comic after original artist Steve Ditko left. Romita was integral to shaping the looks and characteristics of Spider-Man and the other characters in the book. 

I drew a tribute to Mr. Romita, inspired by the famous panel where Peter Parker gave up Spidey in Amazing Spider-Man #50 . This is the issue:

This is the panel that immediately sprung to mind when I thought of a tribute:
This scene was also in the Sam Raimi movie SPIDER-MAN 2

These are the 2 drawings I did (I did the 2nd with the white suit in the trash because some Popeye fans hate the white uniform)

Fair Warning: Van Halen tribute art

 I've been painting a David Lee Roth era Van Halen tribute portrait with the intention to sell. It's very close to done. It's oil on 20x16 canvas. I charge by size for up to 3 subjects. 16x20 drawing or painting is $320 plus shipping and handling. 

I've worked on the painting since this photo was taken. Email me if interested. It would make a great gift for a Van Halen fan.

 I decided to do some art that people might ACTUALLY like, so I painted a watercolor of Taylor Swift. Her name comes up constantly, so I'm guessing she's popular.

I might do some more work on it, I dunno.
