Pareidolia: Cloudscape series latest drawing (February 8, 2018)

Here is my latest drawing in the Pareidolia: Cloudscape Series.


Sketches from Wednesday Night Urban Sketch at karate practice. (January 28, 2018)

I got there late just before 8:00 and was flummoxed at first on how to sketch because these guys were moving so fast. You can see my first sketches at the very bottom – they are a lot stiffer and less responsive.
You may wonder how I got details on the poses.
I quickly figured out that they repeat the same routine (series of moves) about 6,7 or 8 times in a row. So I focused on one individual and then chose one of the strike poses that I liked – laid down some minimal lines then waited until he got into that same pose again in the routine and filled it out a little more. And so on, until he completely finished with that routine. Then afterwards I went back and modeled the feet the hands and some of the drapery folds from my memory.

Merry Christmas (December 22, 2017)

I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas.
Below I bought a coloring book from Daryll Collins. I learned about the Youngstown tune-up from Daryll and Bruce Chrislip at the Illustrators Christmas party. I applied my new found knowledge to the first page I decided to color below.

If you are unsure of what a Youngstown tune-up is – google it.

Font Found in Empty Classroom (December 6, 2017)

I had to snap this photo when I went into an empty classroom and saw these marks on the blackboard. At the time I thought, “Hmmm interesting marks – it might be a good basis for a font. ” and I snapped the photo thinking that I might turn it into a font. The more I looked at the marks – the more I saw – it already IS a font. Can you read it? (Clue the last word is rabbit).
