Betty Picture Compare.

haha… So the reason i’m posting this picture again is because i saw that a few of you all out there didn’t feel like i captured Betty’s look, but the picture i drew of her was kind of a different one. And I also thought it would be fun to see the two side by side.

This Wallpaper is one Danny Roberts made for the Siren Project by Paper Castle Press

Harajuku Lovers

Howdy! Here’s my own rendition of an already existing Harajuku Lovers Fragrance ad, i wasn’t commissioned to do this. When i saw the ad, i couldn’t resist drawing it. I mean, how could i? It is way too fun of a picture. How are you all doing today? Any questions for me? Love to answer. Have a great day.

Self Portrait Video

Finally the Video.

Good Morning, Good Morning, i love the Morning. Finally the Video! i promised i would get it to you, and wow, i had to jump through a few hoops to get it done, but i really like how it turned out. The song is by one of my best friends since i was in kindergarten, Mr. Ryan Baxley. He is Brilliant! One of those Musical Genuis’. Yep, yep! That is him singing and playing. Please check his music out by clicking here For those who couldn’t tell what materials i used it was pen, then watered down ink, then colored inks, then Prismacolor pens, colored pencils, then blended them. I really hope you all like the video and i hope it answers some questions. If you haven’t seen the finished Self Portrait from that Video… Click Here to see it.

The Time Machine.

So i’m not much for multitasking…. but here i am working on twenty things at once. Working on this big illustration for a online fashion community in Australia right now. i’ll show you when i’m done. My brain feels really scattered today, so do forgive me if i jump topic a few times. haha. Well, the pictures i posted above are the unfinished version of one of my drawings from the children’s book i’m doing with Sophie Ward. I can’t wait to have it done. Really excited about it. Oh, made some improvements on the site, just on the About me and the Blogger portraits so far. i wrote a little bit about how it came about. On the Prints … Yes, i have international shipping for all you lovely friends all over the world. Thanks for the votes. i used them and am printing the top 4 you all voted for. i’m trying to get the ball rolling for ya. :) On the video on the Self Portrait process, should be up, i hope, in the next few days. wow…. Do any of you have a time machine that i could borrow? Need to figure out how to fit 48 hours in one day. Oh my, that would be so nice. i just get lost in music and my drawing world and hours fly by too fast… How are you all doing today? i hope everything is going amazing for you all! Good day!

This Picture is from Danny Roberts character Sketchbook, Volume: The Lily and Gemma Book.

The Lily and Gemma book

oh the Beginning…

October 30, 2006 It was an overcast day, i was visiting my brother at school with my friends, Ryan and Alice. I was sitting on the ground hanging out when i had the idea to do a sketchbook to monitor my journey of learning how to draw. Two years and 199 drawings later, here i am, one left. I sat down last night and looked through Volume 1 of the Character Sketch book. It was so fun to see the growth. That’s why i posted drawings 3 and 4, so you could see the starting point. :) Thanks for all the name suggestions on the book. It helped so, so, so much. I think that i have decided on the book’s name. i’m running them by my partner in crime, Sophie, and few of my friends. Once it’s 100%, i can’t wait to tell ya! Welp, i hope you’re having a relaxing Sunday. Watching Seinfeld right now! Such a good show. :)

This is Danny Roberts drawing of the musician Sarah Jaffe


Thank God For Saturdays.

My family has a new ritual this year for Saturdays. We spend the morning getting bagels and going to Pete’s for coffee and sit and talk. Then we go home and hang out and watch movies. It’s so so so nice, so therapeutic. Well, the picture i posted is this poster i did a little while back for my friend in Texas Miss Sarah Jaffe. She is one of the most brilliant musicians i’ve heard. She just came out with her first official Ep, “Even Born Again”. I ordered it and it arrived two days ago… and seriously, it’s all i ever want to listen to from now on. She is so smart, clever, with the greatest senses of humor, and her voice is one of my all time favorite voices. Her music is the most sincere sounding music you will hear. It is as though she has lived a hundred life times and seen and experienced everything a person could, and she writes with that kind of knowledge. She can do all this, and she is in her early 20s. i think she is going to be huge! Please check her out and support here music.
