So...my wife and I got to go to a private VIP event at the Hardrock Hotel in Chicago today, to see our son (Andrew Belle) play at a BMI event, and guess who we met? Aaron Paul who plays Jesse Pinkman on the hit show BREAKING BAD!!
He currently follows me on Twitter
It was a great time!! Free food, drinks, gift bags, etc. I think I had me about 10 Red Bulls! LOL
If you have NOT YET seen Breaking Bad, I HIGHLY recommend it! It's being called the best show on TV now. It is my FAVORITE SHOW right now!! Check it out here: [link] and here: [link]
This is Luis Moncada with the drawing I sent him. He has been on Dexter, The Fast & Furious, etc, but is maybe best most known for his role as Marcus Salamanca, one of Tuco Salamanca's cousins (twin Cartel Killer) on Breaking Bad - Season 3 - episodes 1 - 6

NOTHING...and I mean NOTHING inspires me more to draw than outstanding photos!!! Have you been in a rut on what to draw? Look through these! I believe that a drawing can only be as great as the photo you try to duplicate. Boring photo = Boring drawing? Awesome photo CAN = Awesome drawing? I have to boastfully say that I've gotten pretty good at choosing a good photo, which is one of the ingredients to a good drawing!!!
I have created a Google Picasa photo album with ALL of my reference photos for FUTURE Drawings, and thought I would share them with everyone. I hunted them down on the web using Google Images, saved them cropped them and adjusted their contrast, so what you see in what I will draw 99% of the time. They should ALL be large enough to see details, and like me, print them as large as I draw them. Feel free to share and download them, draw them etc. It will be growing as I add more to it. Again, it is for my FUTURE drawings.
I also plan to create another with ALL of my PAST reference photos I used in past drawings. Hope it helps you?
NEW to DA and have not seen my DRAWING TIP GUIDE? Here you go... Also, you may want to follow me on Twitter? I often post WIPs of new drawings and random TIPS I do not post on DA [link]
So...I recently decided to mail my original Walter White mug shot drawing to Vince Gilligan, via my contact at the Br Ba office, his scrip coordinator PA writer, and this arrived by Fed Ex today as a thank you!
This is the drawing I sent him, which is being framed to hang along side a couple others I gave them, in the entry hall of the Breaking Bad headquarters. I am sooo friggin proud of that one!! I'm told she will get a photo of Vince Gilligan standing next to my work soon, which I will post
