Birthday drawings

Here's a couple of birthday drawings for some of my co-workers. I used the Pentel Tradio and Pocket brush pens for the main parts of the drawings and a Pentel Black Color Brush pen for dry brush effects on Canson BFK Rives cream paper. As always, click on the images for a closer look.

R.E.M.'s bassist Mike Mills for Kim last month, 5"x7" (

A fun/weird drawing of heavy metal vocalist King Diamond and Korean pop star PSY (dancing in Gangnam Style) for my friend Avaryl, 8"x10" (

'Til next!
