Textured paper that I water colored for page 3 of my sketchbook:
I have completed the first 2 pages of my sketchbook with the exception of a little round sign on the inside cover that I intend to fill out once my book has been completed and is otherwise ready to mail. May this image bring you as much joy as it does to me:
The Brooklyn Art Library in New York City has a program that I'm proud to say I will be a part of this year: The Sketchbook Project. As part of the project, anyone can purchase a sketchbook from the library and fill it almost any way they desire. The participant then mails the sketchbook back to the library, and the sketchbook becomes part of their permanent collection, travels across the country to art exhibits, and will be catalogued and rotated for viewing at the Brooklyn Art Library as long as it stands.
I have filled my book with patterns and textures. Now for the fun part...
It's a photo day!
Some doodles while playing Power Yahtzee.
I'm really happy with this one - it reminds me of a Rodin sculpture that I saw at Stanford and loved. I think I'm back to good drawing days...
Another sketch. I photographed this one at an extreme angle and I think that I really like the proportions it created.
I colored an existing creature design.
This was an extremely quick sketch that I did just before bed to get an idea down on paper. I had a vision of a creature-version of mother nature where her entire abdomen is shaped like one of those woven, hanging bird nests. I haven't really nailed down the rest of the concept except that her limbs should be somewhat spindly in contrast to the rounded abdomen.
I had an idea for a little creature whose bones got longer as they radiated out from the center of it's body instead of shorter - a creature of backward proportions, so to speak - but it didn't work out quite the way that I planned. This was another poor drawing day. I think that the idea was good, but the execution left a lot to be desired.
I'm not really happy with this one, but it's all I drew this day.
This little alien crashed into the moon. I have plans to revise this drawing so that the crash causes the crescent.
A cactus in honor of leaving Arizona.
Just a little sketch of a little pig.
I made a little game of Pin-the-Tail-on-the-Minecraft-Pig for my nephew's birthday party.
A little dragon in a little sketchbook.
I fleshed out the dragon just a bit.
More work on Nathan's dragon drawing cut-up sketchbook page.
I found the perfect rose.
