100 Sketch Challenge

Hello! I know its been awhile since I've last posted on here, a lot of things have happen since then :3 I relocated to a new town and started working at David and Goliath as a graphic designer. I previously interned with them during the summer of last year and here I am now! I am very thankful to be working here, I have been learning so many cool things and absolutely love the creative team I'm on. With that said, I haven't been doing much personal cafe sketches and I miss it dearly.

This past weekend I did a 100 sketch challenge at my favorite place to draw, Barnes and Noble. I didn't realize when I moved up here, there was one located less than five minutes away (Its meant to be ;P) The purpose of this challenge was to break my previous method of drawing, which was slow and emotionless. I wanted to block people in quickly before they got up and left. I purchased a set of scented highlighter found in the clearance section that proved useful towards the end of the session.

It wasn't my best weekend of drawing but it's a start and I will definitely try this out again. For now I shall do another challenge of 100 noses because I seem to struggle with those a lot, be on the look out for the next blog post to see how they go. I've always wanted to draw a whole bunch of noses, hands, etc. I some how managed to not get those assignments when I was in art school.

Sketches on the go

I must say my favorite thing to do is still drawing people from observation. This weeks sketches came from a recent visit to Barnes and Noble cafe with my good friend. There were so many people, all the options! Sometimes I get caught by the individual I'm drawing, but it absolutely makes my day when my sketches bring a smile upon their face. I've been also getting a kick out of these Crayola colored pencils I found from when I was a kid.

Fictionary WIP

I am currently taking a synergism class taught by Mike Hodges here at Ringling. Here is some work in progress on a project, Fictionary, where we have to use words from one page in the dictionary and come up with a cohesive illustration, can you guess what words I used?

Sea otters!!!

I love sea otters, like LOVE them. Here is an illustration I did for my advance media class. The criteria was to have a man pet and machine executed in pen and ink. In this case, a little lady, otters and an inner tube. I'm looking forward to adding color :)
