Green Day

I hadn't used my ink pen, color pencils, and drawing on a 2-page spread for a long time, so I thought I should. =)
 I've always liked Green Day and I thought they have very interesting styles(both musics and fashion), and good humor.
Thank you all again for your kind comments, and I am glad Dan and Raena enjoyed my last post as much as I enjoyed their project. Hopefully that served as a good sign of approval to their blog, and that they'll keep producing more beautiful illustration for our viewing pleasure ^^

  9. Im also a fan of Green Day, and this picture is great (I like your pencil work and how you kept it all black but for the name, its a cool contrast with each other).

    Great work!!! And bravo for the Dan & Raena sketch, sure brought out fun topics (just read Dan's post : )

  13. Hi Alex,

    Regarding your comment, as I'm sure you know very well, it can be difficult to work at a job full time and make a lot of art, too.

    Cool Green Day drawing!

  17. My sister was once at a party when they showed up. One of them (I couldn't tell which) asked her to dance. She called me the next day to tell me about it! Wonderful sketch!

  26. Cute new picture. Maybe Dan will draw this one too! Sorry to hear you can't get home to see your sister's new baby. Maybe you can make her first birthday party. That would be fun. She could actually get to know you then too.
