Packing up some old sketchbooks while getting ready for another move so I figured I'd grab some scans for a quick sketchdump. No real rhyme or reason just flipped to a page and if I liked it I scanned it.

Since I'm moving from Singapore back to California, my computer/scanner will be on a boat for a while and I won't be able to post much art here. However, I will be posting art through my twitter which you can find here:

A coffee shop sketch (and a dash of Photoshop) that turned into Shaggy from Scooby Doo. Somebody commented that it looked like he had to put Scooby down but I definitely wasn't going that dark with this. I do wish I'd thought of that, though.

Here's the process for a piece I put together for the Dark Horse's "Draw the Goon" contest. I found out about the contest a few hours before the deadline and had to knock this out pretty quickly. 

Step 1: Quick sketch in my sketchbook that I scan, blow up and print out in blueline. Time permitting, I would have played around a bit at this stage to get a few more ideas out and on the paper.

Step 2: Loose pencils. 

Step 3: Final inks. I don't generally pencil very tightly and do most of my actual drawing in ink but in this case, I wish I'd done a bit more of the prep work in pencil.

I may go back and add some tones in Photoshop to punch it up but overall I kind of like it.

Rollerskate Skinny

A warm up sketch that I got carried away with. Brought to you by the Old 97's Rollerskate Skinny.

Twitter Sketches

Some sketches from the Twitter. The monkey was a result of mixing jetlag with cold medicine, the preppy guy is from the sheer amount of dudes here in Singapore that pop their collars (it's like an island full of 80's movie villains) and the westside just happened. Also, I tend to update that more frequently since it's a bit easier to do. You can check it out here:

Sydney Travel Sketches

Some sketches from our trip to Sydney a couple weeks back. I usually just had my moleskin sketchbook and a pencil on me so there wasn't a chance to ink them, hope they show up OK. Australia was awesome by the way, I can't wait to get back there again.

Vietnam Travel Sketches

Some sketches from our trip to Ho Chi Minh City/Saigon and Hoi An last weekend. I don't often get a chance to sit down and draw on our trips so it was nice to squeeze these in.

Twitter sketches

 I've been posting sketches to my Twitter since my computer and scanner have been in storage.  I've always considered myself a pretty traditional artist, however, 4 months of just having a sketchbook and some pens has been a bit frustrating.  But the computer and scanner have been delivered so here's a collection of said twitter sketches along with a couple photoshop sketches for good measure.

 This guy was sketched up while listening to the Gaslight Anthem's Say I Won't (Recogize) listen here

Well, I sold my soul to the devil that is twitter.!/TonyBrescini

With my move back stateside I won't have my workstation set up for another 2 months (our stuff is drifting back via boat through what is apparently all 7 seas) and this should be the best way for me to continue posting art.  

So, if you'd like to see more of my drawings or if you just want to hear me blather on about my Lakers, Bruce Springsteen and the Wire you can follow me here:  Here

Thanks in advance for checking it out!
