Sketchbook Ronnie James Dio



Another straight-up b&w drawing on cheap paper...this time of Ronnie James Dio, whom I always considered a frontrunner for the Ugliest Man in Rock and Roll Award.  As a teen, I knew metal heads and I knew dungeons and dragons nerds...and both of them made peace over Dio, the hobbit wizard of metal.

I have no one to thank for suggesting this one, I just always knew I'd draw a picture of Dio one day.

I miss that little devil. Strongest voice in metal, weirdest lyrics of all time.

One of my all time favorite humans. Thanks for this, made me happy to see it. He was my hero, for reals.
