California Diner Fun



Hello Friends!



  • Gary
  • and I did some diner drawings this morning!

    Here are my marker observations of two unsuspecting creatures in nearby booths:


    This guy was overall swollen and melting, but his see-through fleshy nose was erect and alive and growing towards the life-giving sun! swoon!


    and this pink one had a constant anticipation/alarmed expression.


    more later! = ) = )

    I can't decide which one is best. And they're both so dynamic, I hope some day I can achieve this and get rid of my usual stiffness.

    Sweet 'coffee-shoppe' sketches!!! Poor bastards didn't know what hit 'em, heh heh.

    mez said...

    Wow, these are swishy! You really like those Chartpak markers.

    I'd like to see you make a BIG caricature with a mop dipped in ink and painted on the floor like they do in Japan.

    Very cool.

    Hammerson said...

    Brilliant stuff, Marlo! Your caricatures have wonderful flow and energy.

    Some guy with a pen said...

    Can i crawl inside of your artistic womb and emerge anew, like some sort of whitty, incredibly talented offspirng of yours? I promise I wouldn't eat much and I'm fully house broken, so I'll go on the paper!
    You are incredible Marlo! I just love your perspective on everyone you see, its completely endearing to see someone who view the world in a light hearted and comical way!
    I love you!!

    Marc Deckter said...

    Wow! Great!

    Marlo Meekins said...
