JUST ADDED: “Spring Storm”
This is a drawing I performed using charcoal and carbon. It was my first attempt at drawing clouds. The old manure spreader in the foreground is a familiar landmark that can be found within my local farming community. The drawing is a combination of two pictures I took and simply put them together to create the drawing below.
SIZE: 14″ x 17″ charcoal and carbon on Strathmore smooth bristol board.

Additional images below showing original oil painting of Frank Frazetta which was used as the reference and some close-up shots showing some of the detail and how it started out. Also, as almost everyone who has seen this in person, the photographs don’t do justice to this drawing. Thanks for looking.
#2 Praying Hands (artistic tribute to Albrecht Durer)
Charcoal and carbon mixture of Albrecht Durer’s famous piece Praying Hands. This piece was drawn on Strathmore vellum bristol board. If interested please send an email. My address can be found under the CONTACT tab at the top of the page.
Size is 14″ x 17″
#3 The Deed Is Done (Molley Hatchet album cover by Ezra Tucker)
Charcoal and some carbon was used in this drawing. Unfortunately, after completing the piece, I decided to spray it with a fixative (which I’m not fond of using) and sadly, it caused the paper around the image to yellow. So, I attempted to put in a mixed background of charcoals to help offset the yellowing. The image is still good and has not been affected by the fixative. Nevertheless, I’m discounting this one big time for this very reason.
Drawn on Arches 140 hot press watercolor paper, this item is a one-of-a-kind drawing paying tribute to artist, Ezra Tucker. Completed nearly five years ago, I altered the axe, the sword, the buckle, and eliminated the busy background that was part of the original oil painting. I’ve provided a couple of close-ups from during the construction process.
Size: 22″ wide x 30″ high
