A bit of creeper and some other stuff

This started out as just some warm ups for a drawing of the Creeper intended to go up for charity auction at Fall Con. It then grew into some character design, and wouldn’t you know it? The Creeper came back out on the other side of things.

Brief Tribute to the King

Elvis is one of those instances where I can’t really express why he’s so captivating, but can’t help to love his work anyway. So today, 37 years after he has passed, I offer up this quick sketch and a link to one of my favorite movie moments.

Got a sketchpad with toned paper for the first time in my life and am trying it out. It’s kinda fun. joel vollmer ballpoint pen sketch 08-08-14

The Checks are in the Mail

When friends spot me money for event tickets I’m not always speedy in repayment. Nothing malicious, just general absent-mindedness. So as a thank you / interest / vig it’s important to decorate the envelope.

drawing a corgi

My friend Peanut sent me a very amusing diagram on how to draw a corgi so figured I’d give it a go. joel vollmer ballpoint pen sketch 06-08-14
