Back, with marker pens!

I haven't posted to this blog in about  9 months.  I've to decided to use this "Howard Salmon, artist" primarily to as a black white collected of drawings and drawings. Briefly, my cancer diagnosis has improved (in somewhat) so for some of you are primarily interested my health chronicles, please check on those blogs.  This stuff is just about drawings.  Check this stuff whenever you're interested into what I'm up to with sketchbook stuff (that other thematic issues such as how my life is going)  For those are interest in those more personal drawing books please checks those other please collections of those drawings.  So, here's a drawing I did earlier did today.

Hello 2014 so far, I'm still here...(marker on paper) (2014 by Howard Salmon)

The Symbiotic Art Cancer Culture Ball

So we finally meet!
Well, I'm blogging about my dire cancer diagnosis, and going all out literary and artistic, to explain to the webworld what's going through my mind. I'll be postings via Facebook, and my various blogs (on Google's "blogger" platform)

My main blog will be


...this is where I'll post all of the latest opinions, artwork, journal entries related to my sudden reaquaintance with a creature called "stage 4 brain tumor". I've got a negotiating strategy. I'm going "in" to "bond" with the tumor...wish me luck.

Room Service in the Astral Plane, #2

Holy cow, what's going on here??  Some freaky bald dude flips his wig while considering the room service menu in some unknown hotel.  A slice of cheesecake manifests instelf into a swirling blur, as the shadow of a tourist looks for something to eat. Crumbs of cake, bread, and chicken wings swirl together as if Food Network did a show on the Cosmos. So what's on the menu? Well, is that "menu" with a small "m" or a big "M"? Will the tourist eat? Will he assert himself and actually order something? At this point, it's still a mystery...

Room Service in the Astral Plane

Welcome to the start of an online graphic novel/webcomic which starts in the middle (somewhere) and works it's way out, backwards to front (simultaneously) until somehow, a story appears.... The first installment of a story that is out of order... A journey in search of a story, a structure, characters....you get the idea...

Bedside Bric-A-Brac

Here's a new sketch of stuff by my bedside: an Ott lamp, a bottle of water, a roll of packing tape, some books.... I'm thinking of getting back to straight drawing. Just drawing objects in front of me. Any artist worth his salt has got to have basic drawing skills.  Oddball experimental work is all fine and nice, and I love creating it...but some of my favorite work of my are my drawings from life: straight from pen to paper, without any preparatory planning or sketching.

The Bald Truth

Nine different views of a bald head floating in a surreal desert landscape. Drawn as a comic strip. With faux gold in the gutters. It just speaks to me... (size: 14" x 17", mixed media on paper)
