Sketchbook Drawings (October 23, 2012)

When I go out on the weekends, I always bring a small sketchpad and mechanical pencil with me to sketch or write down ideas. Very often, I just sketch the people or the musicians that play. The musicians are great because they don’t mind you staring at them for a long period of time and they stay in relatively the same position for a long time. These sketches never get seen by anyone. Even I, rarely ever look back at old sketchbooks. So I decided to look at some of my old sketches and post a few here on the blog. The following are some musicians I have sketched as they played. The last one is an old rare sketch of the old H-Bomb Ferguson – who has already passed away. This was one of his very last performances at R.P.McMurphey’s. 


Vector Paintings (October 4, 2012)

If you have looked on my site of the 2D homepage you will see two images that I call ‘vector paintings’. These are paintings done in Illustrator on a 16/9 aspect ratio. These ‘paintings are vector images, which means that they are resolution independent. They can be scaled up to the size of a billboard as well as scaled down to the size of a postage stamp and still retain their crisp, clean quality.

I want to do some more of them and here is how I start them. I have a very small sketchbook that fits in the back pocket of my jeans and I draw these small sketches in a long horizontal format with a pencil. These are three of the sketches that I want to finish.
