Sunday Sketch - May 29

Attended the weekly sketch session at FSCJ this past weekend. One of our favorite models made for an enjoyable afternoon. I'll post the (4) 30 minute poses I did in my Moleskine. We didn't get to do an hour long pose this week. Don't forget, we have our weekly SketchUp! at the Lakewood Starbucks this evening. Grab a sketchbook and join us from 5:30 til 9:00.

Sneak Peek - Tomorrow's Syndicate toon

This won't post to the syndicate until the morning, but I wanted to make sure it got published "somewhere" today in case there's a yahtzee tomorrow.

Ann Scott's Library Reading Tour 2011

Florida's First Lady, Ann Scott visited our local library last week. She'll be criss-crossing the State on a whirlwind tour over the next few months. Wonder if she'll include these books?

Today's Syndicate cartoon

With Huckabee and now Trump dropping out, the pool of fools is thinning. Still can't believe the syndicate picked this up. I'm happy they did though!

Sunday Figure Sketch Results

Had a great time at our weekly figure drawing session yesterday, with the added bonus of lunch with friends afterwards! I'll post a couple of gestures and a few Moleskine pages. As a little experiment, I purposely exaggerated the form in the last drawing. Lately I've been interested in creating more focus on those areas that define a person's physical personality. What does a thin neck say about that person? Why did that hand fall just there like that? What does the way the hair is pulled back tightly say about the person's mood? One way to do this is through exaggeration. I'm basically using the same formula I use to create a caricature of someone, only now I'm turning the tables and incorporating it into a figure drawing. We'll see where this leads.

Have a great week everyone!

Sunday Figure Sketch

I've never drawn from this model before, so I was looking forward to it. I'll post a few gestures, and the finished montage of (2) 30 minute sketches and an hour long pose from my Moleskine. Hope everyone is having a GREAT weekend. Go hug your Mom.

Thursday's syndicate cartoon

Beyond all of the "Osama was a bad dude and we're really glad he's dead" cartoons, I wanted to do something that spoke to the billions we pour into Pakistan every year. I guess we're not really getting such a good return on our investment when they're harboring public enemy number one. Let me say that one more time: We were PAYING Pakistan to shelter Bin Laden. Your tax dollars at work.
