Tuesday warmup

Ooh! Look out!
The suspense is so thick you can cut it with... uh...

...a quasi-futuristic bayonet?

I put 300+ miles on the bike last weekend and there's more in store this Saturday! (Weather permitting)

This is a warmup sketch that went on for far too long:

Dr. Sketchy

I tried out a new life drawing venue on Sunday.

Quote: "Dr. Sketchy's is what happens when burlesque meets art school."


The session started late because the time slot was double-booked, so everybody did one minute warm-up sketches in the parking lot outside. When I showed up and saw artists sketching a burlesque dancer posing on the curb, I had a newfound appreciation for artistic courage.
Once inside, we listened to hobo bluegrass music followed immediately by a Megadeth medley. Not sure if my drawings are better or worse for it.

I was feeling inspired Monday morning so I went cafe sketching.
My skillz are rusty, so I'm going to do at least one of these every weekend.

The family in the background was adorable. I understand why folks enjoy people-watching so much.
But it always bugs when people change their behavior because they know you're drawing them. This guy in the foreground knew exactly what I was up to.
(Maybe I shouldn't have asked him to hold still?)

Who's worried?

I try to do some warmup sketches every morning to shake the bad drawings out of the pencil (penmouse). This one's been ongoing for two days. Figured I'd call it done and put it up!

I think I'll join the Navy...

The Drawing Club's theme last week was "Sailor Girl"
Here's some sketches:

Here's Audrey in a hurry:

And Zorn in a tizzy:
(SOMEBODY had to work all weekend)

Took the bike for a cruise through Griffith Park last night. Guess I've got Ironhorse on the brain.
(But what's new about that?)

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways...

1, 2, ...

I nabbed this monster last week and I've got ALL kinds of schemes lined up for two-wheeled mayhem!

Ah, mayhem. It's been too long.

And I'll toss in this quick sketch of Amber in the throes of musical ecstasy. There's nothing like listening to great songs while you're drawing!

By the way, 2 Starlets pages down... 113 to go. :P
