Forgetful Me.

Well, I'm sitting in my studio watching an old Bob Ross video and it occurred to me that I scanned in a doodle I did at open life drawing the other night. This was drawn with Prismacolor Col-erase pencils. Had I known it was going to be a long pose I would have brought actual colored pencils or maybe watercolors. Never the less, the col-erase pencils worked great.

Bye Week Makes Me Sad :(

This past Sunday the Packers had a bye so in lieu of football watchin' I thought I'd do a painting of Clay Matthews. It just so happens that Dexter (a show that had me hooked after the very first episode) is on Sundays. It was clear to me that I must conflate the two.

Coming to Term, a Mini Comic

Here's a little project I just finished up. I had the intention of drawing a multipanel editorial cartoon, but as I started two write down gags and a "script," I quickly had a bit that was 700 words long. Perhaps I should have just cut a lot of the text out. That would have been the smart thing to do, but I figured I'd just make a mini comic out of it.

Election Day Life Drawing

I spent the day live sketching the election day, something I've never done before. It was a lot of fun. While the campaigns provided a plethora of material to keep me drawing all day, I surprised myself that I did in fact draw cartoons all day (I'll post those tomorrow). But about the time that the polls were closing here in Wisconsin, I wandered down to the open life drawing on campus for a little r & r. I took my wacom and did some digital painting and sketching.

And by the time I got home, I had enough time to check the election results and of course Obama came out on top.
