Went to do some life drawing at the Spring Street Studio. In many ways I prefer the studio over the Art Student League, where I went last November. My main gripe against the life drawing classes at the league were the amount of long poses. Any pose over ten minutes long, to me, is a … Read More
Found this video on CartoonBrew. Thought I’d share it on my blog because I liked it. I’m only posting the making of video, because it inspires me to try my hand at animating. The artist / animator is Fran Krause.
These are sketches I drew 1 to 2 years ago in various doctors’ waiting rooms . The third image is a combination of waiting room and subway. Drawing on location is a bit tricky because things never stay still. The moment I start drawing a person, said person moves even though he was staying still … Read More
My submission for this week’s suggestion…inspired from life. I call it “The babysitter surrenders”. I may work on it a bit more later on.

I wanted to just get this illustration done as quickly as possible…sometimes I overthink things, so here I decided to not think at all. This week’s suggestion was “chicken”.
I’ll be reviewing the book “Drawings of Mucha: 70 works by Alphone Maria Mucha, including 9 in full color” from Dover Publications. It’s a bit tricky to review a book containing mostly art..especially when the book title gives it away. Either you like the drawings, or you don’t and that’s that. You can’t really argue … Read More
This is a question I’ve been wondering since I’ve received an email from Communication Arts reminding me of their illustration competition. For the record I entered their competition last year, I also entered American Illustration, 3×3, and Society of Illustrators. I’ve “lost” all of them. I could just assume that I’m not as good as … Read More
