Day 8

a personal favorite from this run.


been drawing everyday, just failing to upload here.
enough keeping up with the daily challenge...

will update the blog soon.

dodgy daily pics and scans here.

('here' is a link)




Been challenged by Ashley Wood, so...
taking a detour from weekly to daily.
this is day 5, and easily my favorite.
perfectly timed to be the weekly post.

I'll add the other days drawings when
I eventually go get them all scanned.


gesture drawing

spent a lot of time drawing this week.
everything felt really rigid and stiff.
works for buildings, but felt I needed
to loosen up, so I did some fast gesture
drawing yesterday. for better or worse.

I'll probably show more over the week.


small hotel

I spent a lot of time and effort
on this week's drawing.
unfortunately the scan came out
rather poor. The felt paper I draw
on has a lot of tooth, similar to
coldpress watercolor paper. It's
never easy to scan in the blacks.

Once I have a scanner at home again
this week, I'll be able to spend the
time rather than money to get better
scans of some of these.

more info about this piece will follow...
hopefully sooner than later.


self titled

sometimes you just can't save a drawing.
here's the header image as a replacement.
it's just been that kind of a week. sorry.


1st &...

Another one from a few months
back. Always was a big hit
with the kids. I blame the
seductive allure of spot color.


businesses are open.

Mid-week update.

Did a bunch of life-drawing
over the summer. I tried to
capture the oxidized copper
look of these old things.

Hard to do in black & white.


Waiting to Fall

Week Two. (revision)
The scanner I used leaves
this torn paper look on the
side. I liked it. So I left it.

Le Samourai

Here's one from a while back.
A scene from 1967's French
minimalist crime drama,
Le Samouraï by Melville.

An absolute classic.


Bloom. (ikebana arrangement 1)

This is the first of a new weekly project.

They'll vary each week: between preliminary,
final works and anything in between.

It's very clearly fall now.

The flowers are gone; the leaves are falling
and I'm planting this seed in hope.
