Drawer; Not Artist

I am always amazed by people who have a natural ability to draw anything from memory. I guess it’s because I do not have the talent. Although I may not possess the ability to create works of art, I forced myself to at least learn how to draw. I am the first to admit that I’m no artist, but I’m decent! (I guess you can call me a drawer!)

***Most of these were created in high school!***

The Original Copies are for sale!

Here are some of my attempts at drawing:

Exhibit A:     The first picture is the Boston Red Sox Logo. I purchase a baseball cap with the Chinese Character, which I assume to be the letter “B,” but I am not familiar with the Chinese language, so it probably means Jackass or something derogatory!

Exhibit B:     This is a photo of the Super Man logo.

Exhibit C:          I adapted the Super Man logo into the first idea for my Pete Teix logo, which evolved into my own creation!

Exhibit D:          Here is another “drawer” rendering of the Pete Teix logo.

Exhibit E:          I’m sure everyone remembers Mr. Joe Camel. In my version, he is a little older and has clearly put on some weight.

Exhibit F:          This is an attempt to recreate the Celtics Logo. I have no idea what is going on with his eye!

Exhibit G:          Some of you may remember this character. I am not sure what his name is, but he was a creation of the Adidas Company. (I honestly don’t remember if this is an accurate depiction!)

Exhibit H:          I drew the Cleveland Indians logo because it was in a magazine and I can only draw by looking at a picture. I do not have the talent to draw from memory. In case anyone is wondering, the Indians Suck!!!

Exhibit I:          This picture of Willy Wonka is from a box of his wonderful candy. I have no idea which candy, but I’m sure it was delicious!

Exhibit J:          In the 90’s, I hated the Wu Tang Clan. My favorite artist was Keith Murray. This piece is called, “Keith Murray putting down the Wu!”

Exhibit K:          In 1998, I discovered the most wonderful music ever created; Cash Money Records. I spent many days arguing that C.M.R. was better than the Wu, and I was often laughed at. Who’s laughing now?

Exhibit L:          I like some of the No Limit songs, but I prefer their cross town rivals. Cash Money is the real army, better yet the Navy! (What a great song!)

Exhibit M:          This is the Seton Hall logo; I did not create this while in high school. In my version, the pirate is a little bit chubbier than the actual logo!

Exhibit N:          This is a random ship that was in a magazine ad. I think I did a pretty good job on this one!

Exhibit O:          My Elroy is a tad bit over weight, but he seems to be jollier!

Exhibit P:          This is Sonic and I think I nailed it!

Exhibit Q:          Yosemite Sam came out great, as well!

Exhibit R:          This is the pecking order of Florida’s big three programs. The Gators are clearly above Florida State, and I have no idea what happened to the little U!

Exhibit S:          This logo belongs to the rap artist Yukmouth. I am not familiar with his work, but I like his logo! I definitely nailed it!

Exhibit T:          I found a picture of former United States President Dwight Eisenhower in one of my books and decided to try and recreate it. I’m no professional, but I think it’s spot on!

Exhibit U:         You didn’t think I would forget to include the greatest football team of all time did you? GO BRONCOS!!!

Exhibit V:         I think this is the funniest picture in the collection. (If this can be called a collection!) *Who knows, maybe when I die, it may be worth a dollar or two!* I attempted to draw Tiger Woods and it turned into a caricature. (Maybe that is where my true talent lies!)

Exhibit W:       I have no idea why I drew this, but I know that I listened to a lot of Ice Cube during my days in high school. (Looks just like him!)

Exhibit X:        This is the first of two Picasso’s. When Michael Jordan returned to the NBA, I was tired of the Bulls dominating and this was my prediction for the finals. (Utah let me down!)

Exhibit Y:        If you are an art world jackass, you will probably try to find the deeper meaning of this picture, but there is none. I simply was bored and created this nonsense!

Exhibit Z:       Every collection has a crown jewel. This picture of Mortal Combat’s Scorpion is my favorite. I honestly didn’t think I would be able to create this. Sadly, I will never be able to create anything better!

     If you’re wondering why I used the word exhibit for each picture, be assured that I am wondering the very same thing. It honestly makes no sense; exhibit is used in a courtroom. OH WELL!

I hope these were enjoyable to look at!

*****If anyone needs a professional to create a work of art, be sure to contact me; I only charge $5000 per piece!*****

  1. You probably won’t believe me since I’m so great at everything else but I’m terrible at drawing. But I think that’s because I don’t enjoy it. I had a teacher in 6th grade who made us draw diagrams of animals for science class and the ones that she thought were the best she would hang up for the entire week, my drawing never made her “wall of greatness”. Actually there was one time that she hung mine up but it was my mom who drew it for me! After that I hated drawing. Adults have no idea how they can scar children!! I could’ve been the next Frida! Damn Ms. Mahoney!!! It seems like you enjoy drawing and that’s why you’re a decent drawer. Good for you!

    • I think the world is missing out on some great art work. Maybe you should give it the old college try. I think my career as an artist is over, before it even began. I sketched out an idea for the cover art for my novel, but my cousin, who has talent, created one that made mine look like crap. I guess it’s good to know our limitations.
