Saturdays with Seibert: Dan’s Drawings

Local Views of Santa Barbara by Dan Seibert

“Although I’ve been taking photos since I was the yearbook photographer in high school, I started drawing seriously in the late 80’s. Right about the time Reagan left office. By the late 90’s I had a few shows around town and sold a number of drawings. But I never seemed to sell them for what I thought they were worth. At some point I decided to stop selling. I had three favorite subjects, SB landmarks, SB athletes, and the beautiful SB women.

The first few photos are of ones I sold. The drawing of the snow behind the Mission was lost in the Jesusita fire, but thankfully I had a professional take a photo of it and had it scanned. The woman the bought/lost it paid to have another printed on canvass, so it still lives.

This afternoon I opened my closet and started opening boxes of drawings. It was a trip down memory lane. There’s stepladder on my patio and I used it as an easel to photograph everything. Some photos looked washed out but that’s my bad photo technique, they are as bright as ever.” – Dan

    Nice stuff Dan-O. I missed the dirt patch drawing, but I’m still imagining you with a Bob Ross style white boy ‘fro. Ever consider taking up stained glass?

    Pretty good Dan. Pictured Bob Ross too!

  3. I’m impressed. Nice work!
    ( I swear I know/knew that blond woman who seems to be sleeping.)

    Never stop drawing–do it for the love of art, for yourself, doesn’t matter if they sell. You’ve got a real talent.

    I had to look up Bob Ross, I typed in Bob R and the photos popped up. Lol. He makes it look so easy. People say I look more like a short James Woods. One of these days I’ll post photos of my former life with Jan Brewer and John McCain. Honest.

    I hope you know the sleeping woman, that would be Janey, of http://www.maryjaneweddings.com/

    She a great photographer and easy on the eyes.
