autumn


i haven't posted anything in ages..... but today I went to Central Park and tried to paint. I'm not in love with the result but i think it's better than my last central park painting.

creek

Alisa and I did a little painting in Central Park. We found a secluded little creek and wooden bridge. There was lots of bright green duck weed. I think it's duckweed anyway.

I had a lot of trouble painting this...but i guess it came out ok. I have a lot of trouble painting landscapes without a pen drawing to define things.

christi turned me into a monster


i guess she didn't like me complaining about her loud lesbian music in th morning so she transformed her ink animation into a monstrous me.

recent sketches

haven't posted in a while, so I scanned a few decent drawings from my sketchbook, including the doodle from the day I was mad at InDesign. To be fair, i think it had more to do with the server than anything else, but it was still a bitch to have the software shutdown every 15 minutes or so.

10th Worldwide Sketchcrawl

Yesterday was the 10th Worldwide Sketchcrawl. We met at Bryant Park, and just lazily moved spot to spot to draw and paint.

After dinner we went to Lincoln Center to draw the dancers at Midsummer Night Swing. It was incredibly crowded and impossible to see the dance floor, but people on the sidewalk were dancing too.

There was a wierd crazy guy with white bushy hair and mustache, and bright red pants dancing by himself.
It wasn't the first time we've seen him either. He was tango dancing at the South Street Seaport a couple weeks ago, too.

We ended at the Columbus Circle Starbucks.
Nelson and I were the last to leave...Our sketchcrawl ended at midnight.

Sketching at the Museum of Natural History

Today Alisa, Christi, Meaghan and I went to the American Museum of Natural History to draw. It was air conditioned. I like air conditioning.

We bypassed the dead animals of North America, Africa, etc... and headed to the Hall of Biodiversity. It has dead animals too, including a gross gargantuan pickled lobster, but it's much more interesting than the other animal rooms.

Here's my Page O' Diversity:


Then we looked at american indians in cases...and then made our way to the pacific islanders room, where there were no fake people in cases, just cool artifacts.

the race

This is my fathers day present for my dad...he hasn't gotten it yet, but i wanted to post it on my blog. its sorta an illustration of a stupid joke he used to tell all the time.

It's the end of a big race, and the announcer says, "The Lettuce is ahead, the Tomato is trying to catch up, and the Toilet Paper is wiping up the rear!"

dvd

Sooo, I haven't posted stuff in a while. Not because I haven't been drawing. I have.
It's because my scanner is a useless imbecile.
It started scanning again, but with yellow and red stripes.

This past week I've been working on my demo reel and putting together a professional looking DVD. In the coming weeks I'll get around to posting the new reel on my website, but for now here are my designs for the menu and labelling.

recent sketches

This top pic is the view from the north side of the Harlem Meer in Central Park. It's one of my favorite places to draw.

The other sketches are from my lunch breaks at work.. I liked to spend warm afternoons in Herald Square people watching.

The wierd old lady was...well weird.
Any time I took a late lunch, around 3ish, she would be there, preening and looking about coquettishly.
She clothed her saggy wrinkly skin in minimal clothing, short tight skirt, trendy high heels and shirts with the sleeves pulled down. The sleeves would ride up as she fixed her hair and makeup, so she would tug them down again and again. She seemed very proud of her appearance.

Sketchcrawl!!!


Rainy view from a Starbucks window.
Yesterday was a cold and rainy day for sketching. We had planned to go to Central Park, but it was just to wet and drizzly, so we went to the Metropolitan Museum of Art instead.

It was small group, and people came and left at different times. I met 4 new people who were all very nice..I wish they could've stayed longer, but I'm glad they braved the weather to come.

Other than them, there was Christi, Nelson and myself. Phillipe joined us briefly, then we walked over to Gina's apt. to hang out, eat dinner and draw a little more.
