Another Art Book created from old 78rpm Album: "Rombas'


Here is the other one (so far):  It is the same scenario as the previous post and even the same # of pages!
We really had good fun doing these.  It is great to see these in the bright light of day after being in Dave's C'ville barn for a few years!  The albums are 10.5" tall by 12" wide.  Enjoy!

Art Book created from old 78rpm Album: "My Way" Collaboration with Dave Currier

For the past 6+ years that I've been back n Richmond VA, I've been occasionally driving to C'ville  to make art with my good friend Dave Currier.  I had these old 78 rpm "Albums" that were very popular in their time (1920s-1940s), and they aren't worth anything on ebay. So I trashed the fragile 78 records and we used the cardboard "album" to start art-books (yes there are more than just this one).  Just look through it and enjoy!  We usually worked on our own stuff while sharing Music and other mood altering stuff.  These were worked on with whatever media we were working with on our own work or if you needed to step away from your own work.  Fun and wide open to changing and manipulating each others work.

Some Doodlings I did while at the Richmond Zine Fest Saturday, Oct. 4, 2014.
maybe I will embellish and complete them into full-blown Sketches, or even Drawings.
What's the rule? 
What's the definition of Doodle, Sketch, and DRawing compared to each other?   Is there some sort of standard?
I don't know.  But I know I had fun at the Zine Fest!
Any photo's of me at the Zine fest, let me know. My camera had dead batteries (my usual luck)...

Fancy Storm

New ACEO / Sketch Card.  Ink and  color pencil on beige, acid-free card stock paper.

Remember ACEO is standard trading card size (2.5" x 3.5") or in metric 62mm x 88mm!


(c)2013 Ralf Schulze
This is an older piece that I create last year.  A study in grayscale.  Uses ink and various gray and white color pencil on 4" x 6" (postcard-sized) acid-free gray cardstock paper.
I remember I did it in one or two sittings and I liked it enough to sign it.

{my personal rule is:
 If I sign it, it is done/finished! And I cannot add to it after that}

It sat in a pile of papers for a few months until I recently discovered it.

L - Stages

 As a "painted only" work, this was waiting for me to embellish for a while.
Then it became obvious and i finished it a few days (finished mid February).
Only now getting to post it.
same old 8.5 x 11 acid free colored card-stock paper.
I only used Acrylic paint and Prismacolor pencil to create this(Surprise!  No Ink!).
It is currently framed with a bright red Ikea frame and looks fabulous hanging on my wall in the hall!

Oddly Happy-Blue

I just created this yesterday on some fine thick cardstock with ink and color pencil... signed at an angle because I like it horizontally and vertically...

Small Faces

 I got a nice bunch of cardstock paper scraps recently and some are odd sized and odd colors and textures:
this Dinky Doo here is sharpie on a glittery pink and i added stickers. It's about 1.5" x 3"...                            

      This is on similar sized dark blue card stock with a serious slate-type texture. I just used colored pencil for this...

A goofy sketch on the back of a business card.  Blue and black ink with color pencil...

Audition of the Wrong Bhuda

(c)2014 Ralf Schulze
Started last summer and it finally gelled a few days ago.  Had to trim this baby because I accidentally got grease spots on the piece.  It's too good to trash because of 2 tiny oil stains... if you really need to know look at the top right and bottom just to the right of my signature.
If you still want to buy the original it will cost you $120 unframed.  And of course I still have complete rights to use the image as I wish.
This is 8" x 10" otherwise same old acrylic paint, ink and color pencil on acid-free card stock paper.
