Man - O - War

(c)2015 Ralf Schulze
Been almost 20 days since I last posted.
I did this maybe 13 or more days ago.  It is an Art Card (2.5" x 3.5") ORIGINAL.
I used a lot of white marker on a thick green card stock. along with color pencil and ink marker.

Happy summertime Art!

Mr. Suburbia Sticker!

Found this recently while digging thru all the crap that I never throw out.
this is only like 1" x 1.25" hand-cut (that sounds: Fancy).
 I am sure the sticky-ness is worn out since 1990 or so.  But still love that copy machine look (which was made by re-copying over a few times).

Blue Art Card Original (?finished?)

(c)2015 Ralf Schulze
this is one where I am just not sure if it is done. 
Being an art card and only 2.5 x 3.5 inches, I might want it to have more going on.  But as an any-sized work, it feels just about ready.
Any input is helpful!

Rudimentary Skull cutouts 2

I worked at a Plastic ThermoForming  company on and off in upstate NY for a few years and the second best take-away from there was a bunch of these 1/4" high plates, 1/8th" thick black cut-outs, in the basic shape of a skull.

I scarfed up a very small load of them then.

I painted white acrylic on them back in 2005 or 2006.
I still have them and here is the 2nd of them.  This the "outside of the plate painting"
Not showing the "haircell" texture.  and more prone to scratches through the years.

Young Art Teacher's Wreck Book 1

1985
sent this to pal who was working as a substitute art teacher in 1985.  They were tough times.  just like these days.
Thanks Bill for sending this back for me to post!

Pure cut and paste / collage style stuff.  A wonderful thing of the past.
Let me know if you find the vintage BattleStar Gallactica sticker hidden in this series!

Dark Matters

(c)2015 Ralf Schulze
 Finished this today. ink markers on Bristol board  5"x 7"  Image size is only 4" x 6".  I signed it at an angle because I like both vertical and horizontal.  When I make most of my drawings I am always rotating it, not really knowing where the top will be.
