Dropping a few quick sketches from the book. I've been sick the last few days, which has been quite humbling; not having the energy to do anything is terrible, especially when there's so much to be done this time of year. My family has been weirded out by my lack of enthusiasm. It's nice to know e reminded that you're appreciated for who you are, and missed when you're not quite yourself. It's impossible to spell 'quizzical' in scrabble without a blank letter, by the way (That's my Gramma Helga with her 'thinking' face on).
Happy Holidays!

Oh, here's to Nataly's toe acting normal in the New Year!

Match Point

I made a bunch of match boxes to hand out to friends tonight... but plans fell through and the fun is not happening. So I have this pile of matchboxes sitting in a bag. They were fun to make though, and look neat! Hopefully I'll meet up with some folks before Christmas.
Hope you all avoid severe colds!

Done! Sweet deals.
This is the last piece to officially end the semester. I finally busted out the water-soluble oils and boy, did I have fun! The working theme for the assignment was 'memory'. I decided to comment on past relationships. It's on three 14"x14" wood panels. There were originally three chicks, but I decided I better include myself (Sorry Rebecca!). 15 year-old love doesn't count anyways, does it? Sure it does.

Good Morning

The First (proper) snowfall of the season lay itself across the city last night. I had actually thought old man winter wouldn't really kick us in the pants this year, but he's a crotchety (if not untimely) fellow. Better than freezing rain though!
I found a few scans last night of sketches from some time last year or the year before. So here they are!

P.S.: Give Chauncy my love.

Quick drop, just a few things I've done recently. The portrait is of my friend Brea, from a new sketchbook I've recently begun filling-- it's kind of a Life Drawing book more than anything. I'll throw some stuff from it down in the not too distant future. The damned book seems to be taking precedence over my actual projects! Yeargh.
The fish is a spot illustration of sorts for... well, nothing in particular. It could be applied to growth within markets or shrinking environments etc etcetera.
As a side note, I've had a few discussions recently with Rosemary and friends as to when a dot becomes a circle. I mean, a bingo dauber is pretty fat, like the size of a nickel, but the mark it makes is still considered a dot. If you had a bingo dauber a mile wide and pressed it against a surface (the moon?), would it still be a dot? Dots are defined as small... but how small is small? What constitutes a dot?
