some more sketches from Game X

Here's a rare example of my sketchbook as is, no editing of drawings from one page to another.

Happy Turkey Day!

It's especially happy for them if you don't eat one! :)

Sketchcrawl # 25- Chelsea Market

An ink and watercolor sketch at the Chelsea Market.

A group of about 25 met up and we had a great day drawing there and at the Highline Park. I have a photo set here.

Pushing the pose

Two drawings from a 4 minute pose last week. I like trying to get the gesture down quickly so sometimes 4 minutes is too long. In this case, I did the bottom drawing first and then realized I could push it further. Upon further analysis, I realized the model was actually jutting her head out much more than I'd drawn. I suddenly remembered Walt Stanchfield's notes and his observation that most people tend to "straighten up" the pose. Guilty as charged. I've got to finish reading through his books.

Sketchcrawl #25

A little painting I did in the car ride back from Philly a few weeks ago in my 3.5 x 5.5 sketchbook.

Speaking of which, if you like sketching you should come to Sketchcrawl this coming Saturday November 21st. If you're in NYC we're meeting in front of the Chelsea Wine Vault at the Chelsea Market at 11 am.

King Con was great!

Thanks to everyone who stopped by our table!

Here's a little post con write-up I did if you're interested.

I'm going to be changing up my blog posting schedule a bit starting next week. I'll still be posting sketches twice a week, but moving them to Monday and Friday mornings. I've also been working on a little essay on freelance animation that I'll be posting each Wednesday until it's finished.

Last week my friends Amy and Kazu became new parents!

King Con is this Saturday and Sunday at the Brooklyn Lyceum. No word on table assignments at the moment, but Allan and I will be in the directory. In addition to Urban Nomad 2, I'll have copies of Urban Nomad 1, Counter Attack 1 & 2, sets of circus bookmarks, Darjeeling Limited mini postcards and packs of 3 Holiday card designs. Hope to see you there!
