6×11” portrait, original $100
print, 6×11”, 30$
I love Taxi Driver. I’ve watched it so many times.
Finally decided it was time for a Travis Bickle portrait.
In the end scenes of the movie, the film ratings board required the director to desaturate the scenes- the amount of blood was seen as too horrific, and pushed the movie over into an “X” rating. So they desaturated it- toned down all the colors, and darkened the film, so that the blood would have less visual impact.
I wish they hadn’t had to do that- but at the same time, that darkness and uncertainty about what is blood, what is dirt, makes as much of a statement about the character as anything else in the film. I wanted instead to emphasize the blood in this portrait. I feel that the character is very direct, very emphatic about the urge for violence. I wanted to show that.
Prismacolors on 100lb hotpress rag paper.

time flies, 8 1/2×11” print, $25, includes shipping.
[/caption]…and before you know it, it’s all run out.
I watched shawshank redemption, green mile, and miller’s crossing while drawing this.
It’s all colored pencil. This one is slightly smaller, 8 1/2×11″. I almost wore a hole in my fingertip on this one.
I’ve got a few more sketched out, and a few days off from tattooing, so I think I’ll be posting a few more in the next day or two. Off to watch taxi driver, and ice my hand.

Prints of the lolrus are finally up!
11×14″ prints. because he is a big ‘un. he’s a very serious walrus.
All the animals I’ve made are animals I personally adore, and ones whose faces lend themselves to an interesting expression. The walrus, especially, is one of my favorites. They’re always so damned serious!
These are printed at high resolution, on my new epson, with archival pigments. I use heavy (100lb press) rag paper, so it’s acid-free and the print will last a good long time.
This is a limited run of 23, all signed and numbered- if you add it to your cart, it’s $35 including shipping, via paypal.

Some tattoo art and prints, (all originals are framed!) I’m currently using paypal if you buy direct here, it will take you to a cart/checkout at paypal from any of the “add to cart buttons”… if you prefer wepay or google checkout, email me at resonanteye at gmail dot com for an invoice!
I have some other, older pieces that are tattoo-related listed here, if you want to check out more of this stuff.
The originals of some of these I painted as part of a flash set, (10 sheets) that I did a few years ago- others are more recent. I am halfway through another set of flash, when it’s finished I’ll post the originals here as well.
There’s something soothing about finishing a piece like this- I use a round nib pen, and FW inks for the outlines; the color is all watercolor paint. The process itself, working with pen and ink- it’s a kind of meditative state. Some of the sheets are aged paper, burnt and stained to look old.
And some are crisp and perfect. I personally like the look of the aged paper best. Plus it’s a fun process (see this post for a how-to)

some portraits of people I like, admire, or have feel for.
The originals aren’t for sale here yet; click add to cart to buy a print.
(I make all my own prints; I use thick, rag paper (matte, 8 1/2×11″) and epson archival pigments)
I was telling a good friend the other day that Einstein killed more people with his mind than any serial killer ever had with his hands. Not that this should influence your choice to enjoy my portrait of him.
I did the Lucille Bluth portrait on a day when I was in a very skeptical mood; I love the character and plan to do a few more portraits of the characters from arrested development.
But I had to start with my favorite.
I have a few more to add here, finished or nearly so, so check back…
I’ll probably come back to this post and add more as time goes by and I draw more people I find interesting.
You can always suggest someone to me, too, in the comments. I’m always seeking new faces to stare at intently while drawing.
