Freeze Ray. Tell your friends.




MY DIPLOMA FINALLY CAME IN THE MAIL TODAY! No more F.I.T! In other super news, I saw the new batman movie- the Joker is fantastic, genuinely funny & creepy without being camp- and I have succumbed to the internet phenom Dr Horrible's Sing Along Blog. Will I one day post art that ISN'T fan art? Will I do something useful with my degree? Stayed tuned! Same cal time, same cal blog.

JC Leyendecker in the hizouse!



A few sketches from the JC Leyendecker show thats up at the society of Illustrators. Its awesome to see his work in person- the vibrancy of the colour, the luciousness of his brushwork & surface- and there's much more humour than one would suspect if one is only familiar with his handsome man paintings. Granted, alot of the humour is of the 'its funny cuz she's fat!' variety.

Hellboy


I saw both Hellboy movies recently & really enjoyed them- a good balance of fun characters and really interesting visuals. I think this is the first time I've really inked something in photoshop; still kind of clunky but i guess that's a matter of practice.

Tuesday at the society






I Went to the society session with lizzie tonight & was surprised to see one of the models was kika- she's always wonderful to draw and was an interesting contrast to the other, much softer, model.

Conversations with my younger self.


There's a 'conversations with your younger self' comic meme going around, so this is my attempt at it (meme is internet speak for 'all the cool kids are doing it').

Wall-e


Wall-e was fantastic! I'm trying to draw more directly in photoshop sans the use of an scanned in sketch, but its still a little wobbly at the moment.

Iron Artist!



And here are some examples! This one was 'things you're not allowed to do in the library'; clearly, this includes eating a sandwich while Hermione is looking.



Coleen did this one- there's just something about the lions going 'KNAW KNAW KNAW' that I find really funny :D

Summer at the Movies


My friends made the mistake of letting me watch Enchanted. I think they realized the gravity of their error around about the tenth chorus of 'happy little working song'.


On the complete opposite of the spectrum, I recently saw V for Vendetta, and this is basically what I took away from it. I, for one, would have held that grudge a bit longer.

Cuckoo for rococco puffs





A couple of met sketches and a quick page from the sketchbook :D

So, would anyone be interested in starting up a sketchcrawl group? Sort of the same idea as the documentary class- go somewhere, draw, rinse, repeat- but without that pesky 'I have to be there, or I'll FAIL' obligation. Socializing, leaving your house, and drawing weird looking strangers- you know you want to. ^_^
