OddlyEvocative's Profile Picture
Thomas Bernard Howard
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
United States
I'm Tom, self-trained pencil photorealist - realist. I alternate between drawing human form and industrially accurate home designs.
Writing pencil only (that means I painstakingly 'shape out' lighter values-- egad!), but I'm into digital illustration as well.


If you haven't already noticed, I do my own thing. You probably aren't going to find your favorite characters here (probably)... Sorry. :p Though I do take commissions of all sorts.

More info about me (art, music and writing) at my personal website:

This is my primary print shop:…

In (very belated) lieu of the former "Danny" update, in which I shared that the model posted my portrait to his IG page...I want to share that a model, musician, zoologist, and general person I have a lot of respect for, shared my earlier 2k16 portrait of him on his Facebook and Instagram pages, with some very gracious sentiments.

Anyway, the guy's Bryan Hawn.  He's so fab and sparkly, and so very appropriate for this replacement-article.  To view those links in which he shared my post, and learn a little about why I chose to spend months on a meticulous pencil drawing of him immersed in a sea of penguins (apart from the minor detail of his being the booty king), feel free to visit the section I made on my page:…

Thank you so much Steven!! I've really drifted from Deviant Art lately, but I'm making an update today.  I have been well!  How have you been?

I'm good my friend! Just trying to survive the heat here in Virginia. I hope you had an amazing B-Day you old man you! lol. looove the new piece I must go stare at it. hehe It's nice to have you on again, even if it's just for an evening. How's the social network treating you?joy UGHHHH

I realized that after turning 20 I had lost touch with the hip, sociable youngins and their uber-cool trends.  Haha.  Thank you for the birthday wishes, and thank you, also, for still giving me feedback even though my ridiculous absence wasn't very deserving of it.  I'm so happy you enjoy it.  

Glad to hear you're well... Yes, it is very, very hot...even up here in NY.  The heat does not mix well with me, lol.  I hope you have air conditioning...and if not...a frost biome!  
I'll be here again soon-- I'd like to give some of your new stuff some input because I wasn't around for so long, and I've got a couple more updates to make in the coming weeks.  Yay, DA hiatus is over (I think)!

The social networking is....nice? I suppose, haha.  It's definitely more immediate / convenient than DA, but the differences have their pros and cons for sure.  I think what DA lacks in brevity it makes up for in organization.  There are dedicated 'groups' on FB as well, for anything you can imagine really, but they aren't as immaculate or professional in my opinion.  

How are your prints handling themselves on Redbubble?
