This is a collage made from shiny paper that I had been keeping for years but I'd never known what I was keeping it for. I had also cut this image of spooning skeletons from a National Geographic years ago.

I've never been comfortable thinking of myself as an artist until I created this beauty from the backseat of a rental van in early January.

recent unfinished lifedrawings

My next post I promise to have some more cartoony stuff to put up here. I am supposed to be an animator after all.

I'm chuffed about lifedrawing these days. It helps that I don't have a job and have lots of time for it. I sometimes find that lifedrawing is particularly hard when I'm not well-rested and rest is something I've currently got plenty of. I posted these drawings not because I think they're fantastic but because I felt that this session I learned a few things, albeit really little nuanced things. I'll tell you what I don't like about my lifedrawing - I mismanage my time and never ever finish a drawing before the end of the pose, consequently I neglect hands and feet which are both really tricky to draw and something I need to work on. Also, the lines are not as forceful as I'd like them to be and they appear too timid and soft. Except this one drawing of the woman sort of hanging over the ledge with her head and arms dangling downward - I kind of liked where that one was going. Finally, I don't like how I always start with the ass and then work the drawing outwards from there. Bad habits! Is anyone reading this, oh well it's therapeutic.

the harmonist

(click for animated gif!)
This is an illustration I did for my friend Spike Taylor who's a piano tuner. I may colour it tomorrow. That little finger is supposed to be foreshortened I'm embarassed to say.

This is from a photo of my friend Jody who has a nice profile, I really botched up her chin.
