Sometimes ya just feel doing something nice for someone, and in this case, a complete stranger. This was my last couple I drew at RI comicCon last November. As Saturday’s tend to be at cons, they’re crazy busy and this year I booked a gig on top of working the show that weekend ... so I was hurting Saturday come 4pm.. but gotta draw the faces.. these 2 were a riot and talked nerd and Disney movies for so long they turned the lights off cause the show ended (while I was drawing them!!!) So, sometimes I go above and beyond for people. Not looking for a likes, or whatever just a simple “pay it forward” attitude... that weekend went so well if I had to hang it all up, I would from shows. So happy holidays all! Do something nice for someone and dump some good karma into the world... .. .. #designsbydennis #caricature #caricatures #illustration #art #artwork #sketch #draw #doodle #instart #instartist #instasketch #artistoninstagram #artoftheday #disney #aladdin #jasmine #genie #copic #marker #pencil #artstix #prismacolor #getDrawn #myArt #cartoon #makeArt

Sorry for the lack of “new” art... between balancing commissions, new projects, and a new job my time is all over the place. So, I dusted off this piece in honor of #ralphbreakstheinternet .. I love Wreck it Ralph (probably my 1A favorite film after Zootopia). Doodled this up 5yrs ago... caaaaaannnot wait to see the movie!.. might need to give this piece a face lift after I see the movie! .. .. #designsbydennis #caricature #caricatures #illustration #art #artwork #oldArt #instart #instartist #artistoninstagram #artoftheday #instasketch #johncreilly #ralph #fixitfelix #disney #wreckitralph #animation #movies #getDrawn #holidays #badguyIsNotaBadguy #videogames #arcade #sugarrush

Some time to burn before heading to work (wow, that just sounds weird saying out loud..). Can’t get to deep into commissions so I’ll tighten up some pencils on De Jesus from the Big Lebowski which I started last weekend at RI Comic Con. Been wanted to add to my Lebowski art/family for a while, and john turturro is ALWAYS asked for, so you’re gonna get de Jesus... cause nobody f*cks with de Jesus, mehn... .. .. #designsbydennis #caricature #caricatures #illustration #art #artwork #jesus #johnturturro #biglebowski #bowling #abides #saturday #doodle #sketch #pencil #layout #instart #instartist #instasketch #artoftheday #artistoninstagram #makeArt #draw #drawing #nobodyfuckswiththejesus

A very warm thank you to those that attended Rhode Island Comic Con this past weekend. The masses showed up and brought some of the most positive, upbeat, happy, amazing vibes I’ve ever seen at a show. The people heard the call, and boy did they respond. I couldn’t be more happy with how the fans were this weekend. Utterly amazing when something like this happens because it just domino effects down throughout the entire show and weekend... .. .. For everyone that GotDrawn, ordered a commissions, snagged a print, or just wanted to talk some good ol’ fashion comic/geek/nerd with yours truly, THANK YOU. This cave painter is gonna be busy for a while... thank you thank you thank you. Having your faith restored in people is the greatest “get” from this past weekend. Always pay it forward... .. .. see you soon folks. .. .. #designsbydennis #caricature #caricatures #illustration #art #artwork #comicCon #ricc #rhodeislandcomiccon #riComicCon #show #gratitude #thankyou #fans #support #believe #faithRestored #comics #geek #nerd #awesome #payitforward #instagood #instagreat #instart #instartist #artistsoninstagram #getDrawn #artistAlley

Decided to work on an old doodle that’s actually turning into something my pee brain thought of... I’ll be work on “the Incredible Grohl” this weekend at #ricomiccon ..

Quick B&W doodle of Count Dracula as he appears in #castlevania good lord that series is fantastic. Really deep on story and character development. Glad it’s coming back for a season3. If you’re not watching it, start! Short seasons. 30min episodes each. Just enough to leave you wanting more.. thx #netflix .. .. .. #designsbydennis #doodle #sketch #pencil #draw #drawing #vampire #nintendo #videogames #belmont #undead #nosferatu #konami #trevorbelmont #ink #inker #instart #instartist #artistsoninstagram #artistsofinstagram #artoftheday #getDrawn #instasketch #horror #dracula #fanArt #myArt
It’s always a dice roll as to what the customer will like vs. not like. I’ve been doing this for close to 10 years now, so I’ve got a pretty decent idea what works vs. what doesn’t work when it comes to (caricature) commissions that I draw up personally. I’ll always root for the more dynamic/action oriented pieces. To me they just tell more of story. Especially when I draw faces. On the left (b&w) was unfortunately a reject/redo the customer wasn’t pleased with. So, back to the drawing board I go.. the right is the color redo.. a little more tamer (as you can only do so much when the request is “draw them shopping...”). I’m always thankful for any and all work that people request of me... but sometimes, I scratch my hard when I get a “nope, doesn’t work”.. .. .. #designsbydennis #caricature #caricatures #illustration #art #artwork #drawing #doodle #sketch #artistRant #confused #redo #instart #instartist #instasketch #artistoninstagram #artistofinstagram #artoftheday #copic #pencil #prismacolor #marker #artistproblems #notcomplaining #instashare #instagood #myArt #getDrawn
Kept this one cute and cuddly for the customer. Was tough to keep a straight face the whole time doodling it up. Really enjoy drawing ones that are truly unique.

Finished up a commissions today and wanted to keep doodling... been slacking on my #inktober so here’s a gem of cartoon from long ago, Ed, Edd, n Eddy.

Surprisingly more difficult than I expected.. only 5 attempts until I liked the layout for Ledgers iconic portrayal of the clown prince of crime, The Joker! Color should make this as scary as his performance (and yes, that’s a high bar I’m setting for myself)... .. .. #designsbydennis #illustration #art #artwork #joker #heathledger #batman #thedarkknight #dccomics #villain #anarchy #jail #ink #inking #inktober #inktober2018 #draw #sketch #doodle #comics #comicCon #clownprinceofcrime #whysoserious #instart #instartist #artoftheday #artistoninstagram #getDrawn #commission
Wrapping up commissions and going thru unfinished pieces/doodles. Wondering if I should put some color on my (the) Police sketch.... So, I’ll take a fan vote!

Always late to the “art party”. Since it’s #inktober I may as well contribute in my own way. So here’s first doodle, Mr. Freeze. Figured since it the months of scares and creepy things, I’m gonna stick with that as my theme. Hopefully I can bust out quick pieces every day throughout the month... .. .. #designsbydennis #ink #inking #art #artwork #pentelbrushpen #brushPen #sketch #doodle #draw #drawing #instart #instartist #artist #artoftheday #artistoninstagram #instaink #mrFreeze #victorFreeze #dccomics #batman #halloween #october #scary #monsters #villains
