karaoke night at DDSC!



Another fun night with the Drink and Draw Social Club! Turned out to be Karaoke Night last Sunday...! So I had some instant subjects to draw! The top one features none other than 100 Bullets Cover Artist, Dave Johnson!

We also just wrapped up the book and it's on the way to the printer. Should be out by Christmas! Cheers!

I'm waiting for Drink and Draw Fight Club. I'll bring my little friend Mario.

I'm growing tired of your artist growth and breaking new ground. You're almost 40 for God's sake. Find your one style and run it into the ground for the next 30 years. This current attitude is not the path to bitter poverty.

Hi Dan,

Love your drawings, very nice. Thanks for putting the link on the Three Thumbs site (cuz that's how I found yoour blog).

Chris Gardner said...

These are great Dan! You've done it, you've illustrated the whitest-ass shirt on the earth! Where can I get me one a them nuclear white shirts? Nice fun confident stuff as always! Take care man.

aaaokay said...

Wow, those are awesome charactures! The one of Dave is especially good.

Travis Christian said...

Oh my gosh, these is too flamin' funny, Bub!
Dan, thanks for the encouragement on my blog. Always appreciated!

For me the lady was singing "grease", the big man "aint no mountain higher", the strong one "you were always on my mind", the tall one "im a Believer", "total eclipse of the heart" the one with the glasses and finally, the one on top "light my fire". Am I right, Am I right??

RobSchwager said...

Chris is right... that white shirt is fuxxing outta control man.

I think I scorched my retinas.

Marcelo Braga said...

Great sketches, lines and colours. I like a lot the choice of paper.

boob said...

Fantastic stuff! I always dig the white outline/spot-hi-lites/paperbag look. :) Love these characters. I can feel the friendship in these drawings. Very cool.

The barbarian dude in the below post reminds me so much of Jeffery Scott Campbell's work - All those abdominal muscles and curvy lines - I feel like I've seen this style before.

Thanks for getting me through Wednesday! :)

UrbanBarbarian said...

Thanks Guys!

RURALBARBARIAN: Mario? Mario? The guy's a buck forty soaking wet! He'd get demolished! ;)

MICHAEL: Dave says I drew him using Skinny Vision!

MR PAUL: Wait a second... Were you there the other night? How'd you know that!!!?!?!?!

ROB: Visine. I just Fed Ex'd you some. Sorry about that.

MARCELO: Thanks!

BOOB: Thanks! As for the barabarian below, you're not the first person to mention the J. Scott Campbell similarity. I think Lesean Thomas, Joe Mad and and host of other guys sort of ran with that funky anime style. I guess my comic book background is seeping into my work! I've always felt the Japanese really have a feel for the mid sections in their manga and animation work. Just looks cool.

Wow man those are tight! Anything you guys can't draw???

Ray Frenden said...

Glad you liked the Art Fight. Really nice work. Now I'm a-stalking your blog, just so you know.

Haaa! I Love it! Look at those crazy bg's!

I like the one you did of Dave in skinny vision. I think Dave is a lot thinner in person so this skinny vision works! Post the skinny vision one you did of me.

Aww... I wish I was in town for this. I think you should sing at the next one. How 'bout some Hall and Oates? I know they are your favorite group. You can't deny it.

william wray said...

this is a great subject for an artist. I might just show up for the next one.

UrbanBarbarian said...

...actually, that's a perfect Wray Subject! I cringe at what these poor Karaoke Folk might look like! I'd love to see that! Wanna come to the next Sunday experiment?

UrbanBarbarian said...

KRISTEN: Hall and Oates... Y'know, I guess that is right up my alley, sadly...

Would of loved to see what you would of come up with involving these characters!

Come back soon!!!!

Kelsey said...

These are brilliant! I got talked into Karaoke one time and I sung The Devil went down to Georgia, and not very well.

I think the next time will be Billy Jean. :)

oh to be there!

UrbanBarbarian said...

KELSEY: You should hear Dave sing. I was impressed!

BRIAN: Wish you lived out this way! I'm sure you would bang out some great drawings! Let me know if you're ever out this way, we'll make sure we have a Drink and Draw with all the regular culprits!

Penickart said...

These are my new favorites - absolutely fantastic!

UrbanBarbarian said...

You are a kind soul, Mike!

Pipocalavera said...

XD Hilarious!!!.

But these are yours or from Dave J. ?

UrbanBarbarian said...

THanks! These are mine and the first one is supposed to be Dave. But, I was drinking, so the likeness is naturally off... Ooops!

Fabio Lai said...

I don't know how you sing but sure you are a great drawer.
The last two are wonderful.
