It’s been a while since I have posted! Whew! I am happy to say that I have done a bit of drawing each and every day since but I have let the posting duties completely fall by the wayside. And I’ve waited so long that the act of posting has snowballed into a much larger task. In fact I tried to get this long post up a week ago but it took so long to gather and write that time ran out on me and I was back to being too busy to allot the time.
Nevertheless, it’s not a habit that I would like to get used too, yet at times it is inevitable. So, now I am going to attempt to lay it all down and remember the past 21 days. Perhaps it doesn’t matter really. Sometimes there’s not much to write about in regards to a drawing. It’s practice. Though, I sometimes like to describe the day and my thoughts on it. Things I think are worth a share. So anyway.
DRAWING 128 – Digging Out
This first drawing above is Drawing 128. It was drawn at 4am in the morning so technically it was drawn on the 11th but I hadn’t been to bed yet so I consider it the 10th. It was a friday and my co-worker Nathan and I were hoping to get a rough cut of a Muppets Sizzle to the client that day. Unfortunately, it needed quite a bit of work still, so we stayed there, working on it non-stop until about 3am in the morning. We both had Mothers day plans and we needed to get this done to a place that we felt good about it.
It was a good day despite the work because I believe by the end of the day we had a piece that was hitting the jokes pretty well and musically was feeling right. Anyways, 4am on my sofa, just before bed, I drew this. I think sitting here now putting together this epic post, it seems apropos that he’s pulling himself out of a hole.
DRAWING 129 – Body Shapes
This was a Saturday that I spent with the family. I had a bit of time to draw in the afternoon so I decided to work on some body shapes.
DRAWING 130 – Generic Face And Other Stuff
Mothers Day sunday. A beautiful day! Jenny and I took the little one to the tide pools and we had a wonderful day out. I think I doodled these while watching TV with Jenny.
DRAWING 131 – Roping Down
Woke up ass-crack early to get back to work on the Muppet sizzle. Nathan and I continued working on it until we finally sent it at 6pm. I had to work late because I had other projects that needed attention and this week was going to be crazy with the shoots. I drew this before leaving the office to go home.
DRAWING 132 – Cowboy Face
DRAWING 133 – Weirdo
DRAWING 134 – Fish Face
DRAWING 136 – Jet Pack
I remember I wanted to draw something with a setting this evening. I like the way it initially has turned out. So far it is all drawn with a 2H pencil. I would like to go back and add some 2B.
DRAWING 137 – Mandolin
I drew this at a birthday get together for my friends Wendy and Nicole. They are both artists and they inspired a table full of people to start drawing. It was a good time! Wendy and Nicole are having an art opening this June 7th at The Hibbleton/Magoski Art Colony in Fullerton for the Artwalk. Come out for it!
DRAWING 138 – Bow And Arrow/Junie At The Beach
DRAWING 139 – Axe Murderer
DRAWING 140 – Messing Around
DRAWING 141 – African American Dude And Female Ray Liotta
DRAWING 142 – Dragon Dude
I always tend to sketch things roughly when I draw. I remember when I drew this dragon guy I was trying to keep my lines clean and singular.
DRAWING 143 – Lineman
DRAWING 144 – Chameleon And Stuff
DRAWING 145 – Cats
DRAWING 146 – Droopy Dude
Kind of looks like the dude that works at the U-Haul down the street from me.
DRAWING 147 – Tobias
It is not easy to draw and watch Arrested Development at the same time.
DRAWING 148 – Shark Bait
DRAWING 149 – Walking
Practicing walking shapes.
Whew! Now maybe I can get back into posting these things daily!
