Justin Bieber pics!

Low lights from a recently filled sketchbook. The best part of academic classes is all the opportunity they provide for filling sketchbooks. All resemblances to people I know or have known is completely intentional.

Justin Bieber pictures!

I put Justin Bieber in this post twice in hopes that when people google 'Justin Bieber' they get this post as a result and are completely tricked in to looking at my blog.

The Queens greatest hits.

From the "I did this?" file. Don't remember this assignment at all.

From the last workshop I went to last term.

Fall 2010 is looking promising, yeaahhh.

Thunderstorms and neon signs.

Photos? Whhaaaaatt. These started as a class project for Light and Color, but it wound up being entertaining. These are just four from three rolls of film I shot with my jerry-rigged Pentax K1000 turned pinhole camera.

Visited Santa Barbara this last week. Made my first visit to the Santa Barbara Zoo in over two years. A nice little zoo for those not familiar with it, better than the LA zoo even if smaller. Take yourself up there for some lunch and animal drawing, you just might enjoy it.

The Outside.

Because I never used to do anything "pretty".

Walked around the Ventura pier and did these two today, it was slightly overcast. Watercolor on top, sharpies on the bottom.

Head up, shoulders back.

My view of the bowel.

Some crap I doodled today, markers on letraset marker pad because I'll never use it otherwise.

same damn things...

Summer time and livin' is borrring. Bored is kind of a curse
word. There isn't really many good reasons to ever be bored, but I'm giving myself an exception this break from Heck in the summer of shit.

Red Velvet.

Street Sketching. Not exciting but good practice. The top one I did today while I ate after getting a haircut. The bottom ones are from creative perspective. Done mostly at The Lakes and Civics Arts Plaza in Thousand Oaks, my former home away from home. CLICK TO ENLARGE!

The futures uncertain and the end is always near.

Mike Mignola style, cause its cool.

All pain no gain.

Animals are cool. Sun burns are bad.

Don't have to keep playing the lone gunslinger.

A birthday gift for a friend. Also paying homage to Ashley Wood's style. About 12x24" oil on masonite.

Every mile a memory.

Needed to get out, did these two today in Ventura.

An older one I did quite a while ago now... About 3x4" in size.

Viper of Drawing

I've been doing a lot of figure drawing this term and it looks like I'll have even more free time so maybe I'll get good this summer. Who cares.

Yippee-Kay-Yay Mother$%&#^*

The good, the bad, and the cowboy with tiny feet. Gouache and prismacolor on canson paper to be different.

Also you may now become my follower and do exactly as I instruct you. Just like Charles Manson's followers; minus the insanity, murder, weird cult stuff or swastikas on the head.

The Langford double will HOLD!

A redesign of the movie The Prestige in to an animated film. I moved the story in to the 1930's. I was going for a mixture of old Warner Bro's animations and the Max Fleischer Superman cartoons in style. This project was demanding but fun. For Richard Keyes Color and Story class.... and no it wasn't for the Fall.

50% less plastic

Week 14 post! Some quick animals from last break which feels like forever ago. I can't wait to get back out and just draw again. My brain is already on break.

Remembering Norm Schureman

Norm was a really cool guy and someone I could really relate to. We shared similar interests and I really enjoyed the trips we took in his dynamic sketching class, especially the Nethercut where he got us in the private collection tour then our class got a special tour in the restoration area which blew my gear-head mind. Also Planes of Fame, it was great being able to talk to him about the aircraft; something I don't often get to talk about with someone so knowledgeable. Not to mention he helped me improve my drawing.

Goodbye Norm, my life is certainly better for having had the pleasure to be one of your students.

Where are the BRAKES!?!

I'm taking drawing for Illustration this term, aka; drawing with a pen. I enjoy this class but I have a hard time slowing down. 100 mph is the speed I draw.

Come on feel the noise... I mean paper.

Drawing from the last day of Inventive Drawing.

...and another one.

I visited San Luis Obispo this weekend, and Morro Bay. I've been doing a lot of drawing from observation this break and its been a lot of fun. Especially fun at cool locations like Morro Bay with a rad looking power plant just to my right, I have a third eye now.

New Year...

...but this is old now, its from 2009. You know, back when dinosaurs roamed the earth, before there was the iphone... OK, not that old.

These were some Dynamic Sketching redesigns.
