Sketchbook Drawings

TOM- So I decided to post some sketchbook drawings
for my first post. Normally my sketchbooks are a very personal
thing for me, and I don't show many people, but i'm trying to become
more open with them so I could get feedback on them and hopefully
some of the pieces can become finished illustrations or comics
later on.

I try to keep my sketchbooks as free-flowing as possible, that is
I don't really know what I'm going to draw when I open the book.
With that being said, I don't know why I tend to draw alot of open
mouths, plantlife growing out of humans, and women eating men.
I guess there is alot of material there to psychoanalyze...


But most of the time I just like drawing hot chics...
And here are some life drawings that i threw in just to make myself look
like somewhat of a serious artist....

aw yeah! the first one kills - the yellow-burst hands and feet make it. looking at your stuff always reminds me to be more loose.

you should list the sizes, i'm curious how big the first two are.

cool stuff Tom. I especially like the plant mouth thing. I'd like to see more exploration of that idea. It kind of reminds me of something Dash Shaw ( http://www.dashshaw.com/ ) would do, but it definitely has the 'Tom signature style' to it. -Jon S.

Tom I love your stuff especially the girl and the line work by her waist and buttox. you like that one, buttox.hehe. You should definitely put more drawings from your sketch book cause you have some great stuff in there. I love when we sit around you and have those grampa sessions.

you should also write the mediums you use cause I like the consistency of your work and I like your fun and loose line work that you have in some of your drawings.

what amazes me is that tom will sit there and tell me he has no idea how to use color.

oh yeah????!

so, during these grandpa sessions, is anyone sitting on your lap? "want some candy little boy"....you're a sick man tom.

Tom, I really like the first one -- I feel the same way, man. The last one looks like you were trying to draw your brother Brian and, after making a mistake, just turned it into a generic blackman.

Thanks fr the comments and the kind words y'all...at certain angles, Brian does sometimes look like a generic black man...
