15 CLEARANCE PRINTS for $5 EA!

Today I listed 15 older prints in my NEW WEB STORE for just $5 EACH!  There's only a handful of each one left and they will not be reprinted in the future so this is the last chance to score one! 
Also, if you read the front page of my store, you'll see I'm also including one discontinued print with EACH ORDER for FREE!!!  These prints are NOT included in the Clearance prints listed here- you can only get one by placing an order.  So yeah, essentially you can get two prints for 5 bucks while supplies last (or pick up an original drawing if you wanna splurge!!!)

Here are ALL the prints on sale...

Melania Trump's New Movie Poster!

Meme's are a great spur-of-the-moment expression in our new digital age and come to define just about any visual parody we create.  Now that so many folks have visual editing tools at their disposal and right in their hand via smartphones, it's a great way to communicate and get a laugh. I don't always share meme's I create here on DREGstudios.com but this one was pretty fun this morning and did require a little bit of work.  Over coffee this morning, my wife showed me a video comparing Michelle Obama's 2008 DNC speech to Melania Trump's last night at the '16 RNC.  She had a great idea of making a parody poster of he movie Face/Off.  I thought it was a funny idea and ran with it- here's the results!

JULY ART JAM


It's been long overdue for the gang to get together and sling some paint.  Collaborative sessions are always a ton of fun and we never know what artwork will come out of the experience!  Charles "Wolfman" Bennett hosted myself, Jeff Bertrand, Abby Coppage and Joe Melanson for an all-day jam session yesterday.  We worked on several paintings together and had some great fun clowning around in the process.  A bit of rain had us running in and out of the garage but also gave us some cool patterns on our paintings!  Here are a few shots I got along with some of the other artists...

20 RECENT COLOR STUDIES

I spent the majority of last month working on markers studies of pop culture subjects for the Comic Cons I have coming up  I wanted to work on a quicker drawing style aside from my usual illustrations.  A big part of working a Con is drawing on the spot and my process takes far too long for that.  I don't ever really sketch much other than laying down the groundwork for a finished piece.  I also didn't like the idea of just doing pencil drawings for folks when I'm known for popping colors.  I set out to over the course of a few weeks to practice creating quick studies with a short range of markers.  I ended up with over 60 studies to take to FanBoy Expo in Knoxville a few weeks back where I was able to confidently draw live for three days to keep myself busy!  All the studies I have left are up for grabs in the NEW DREGstudios Store!  Here is a sampling of 20 of my favorites...

TOP 10 MOVIES which Made Me Fall In Love (with Film)

"Topsy-Turvy: Wagger" (Inks on Paper / 2006)
In another life, I'm obsessing over camera angles and voice inflection rather than line weight and how many shades of blue I can fit into a sky.  Since I was a child, I've been consumed with the wonderment I've found through the world of cinema.  You may have noticed many of my Top 10 lists focus on the very subject.  Speaking with a friend recently, I acknowledged the impossibility of naming my own Top 10 favorite movies.  I find myself breaking things down into genres in such conversations.  Its been a while since I made a new list so I thought this would be a good place to start.  Today, I was thinking about which films really pulled me into this devoted love of movies and began jotting down titles.  I suppose this will be the closest I come to a general Top 10 Favorite Movies.  The considerable factor here in choosing is what influence the film had on me when I first viewed it.  I could compose a dissertation on each I'll try to keep it short.  Here are the Top 10 Movies which made me fall in love with film...
