... slightly grown up. I finally got a night to make a contribution to the "RE-DRAWN" blog - link to the right! It's totally rushed, but at least I'm updating my blog.



So my friend Marcella and I have each decided to tackle a yearly goal (for me, painting, for her, sewing) and try to put pressure on each other to actually make progress! I'm also going to be posting what I do on my blog, in the hopes that it will keep me feeling as though I'm responsible to someone. The idea is to post something either once a week, or once every two weeks.

Here's my first painting, and it's really just an exercise to get me going. It's a copy of a photograph, since I wanted to make myself start thinking more seriously about value. (I'm not going to tackle color yet - or content.. that comes last.) I think it was reasonably successful, and I look forward to doing something similar next week to improve, because there is plenty of room for improvement.


Here's a pretty random collection of sketches from the last couple of months.

Thunderdome (sketch session): Swimming Pool Monster

Thunderdome (sketch session): Making Inanimate Objects Animate

Some designs for a picture I made for my mom for Xmas. She really wanted a picture for the election race - the final image was an elephant and donkey balloon floating over DC.

Figure drawing at work. Unfortunately our model cancelled for our first session, so we just ended up drawing each other.

Turn around for a short I'm slowly working on. Design's a little flat right now, but I'm considering it a starting point.

I still have no work to share with you, blogging community, but I thought I'd post this trailer anyway.
