An unexpected human pause for Earth Day’s 50th anniversary is giving us a view we don’t often see.
A sketch from a discreet location – the Palace Theater at The Speakeasy in San Francisco.
This is the last batch of sketches from a sketchbook I carried with me (theme: Undefined Variables).
I took suggestions from various artgoers about compound words that could be made from other words.
Much like my first notebook (Object Oriented) I started running out of ink at about the 3/4 mark, right near the end of these.
This evening had a first-time model, Katherine, whom the organizer had spotted at a steampunk convention and invited to model.
Here’s the full set of vinyl toys & musician portraits I made for the Hues/Muse artist takeover at Chromatic Coffee last month.
Next batch of the sketches in the Undefined Variables sketchbook I carry around.
Gadget testing time – here’s some sketches I made with Adobe’s hardware/software offering for tablets, the Ink stylus and Adobe Sketch app.
Inktober is done, and here’s the last batch of sketches: this time it’s George, age 76.
This week in Inktober is Maddie, age 31.
For this week of Inktober I’ve been sketching Michael, 23 years old.
For this little black book I wanted a different theme, ideally playing off of another computer science term. Hence: Undefined Variables.
I’m participating in Inktober, an annual event since 2009 that’s an excuse to practice inking. I decided to practice facial expressions as a counterpoint to my Statement series of paintings.
This was one of those “what the heck do I draw?” moments.
Content warning! Life drawing == nudity. I’m seeking out opportunities to do life drawing so I can get a bit more attuned to gesture and anatomy. I’d ultimately like to get better at representing facial expression and body language.
A brief update: here are the rest of the sketches from my little Object Oriented sketchbook.
My pen began to run dry, so I switched to a new one partway through this batch.
It’s been a few months, and I have fourteen more Object Oriented sketches to show for it.
I found these funky little 3″ x 3″ leather-bound books at Cost Plus World Market a little over a year ago, and decided it’d be just the right size to carry around.
