The 10 Minute Sketch

Hello Friends! Did you all have a great day with your Mother’s yesterday? I sure did. It was such a nice relaxing day. We hung out, watched Arrested Development & then later watched the old classic “South Pacific”, which was my first time seeing it, and i loved it. i don’t think they made any bad movies back then, it’s so amazing. Well, later last night i decided to make an extremely Quick Video for you all. I gave myself 10 minutes to begin and end the drawing, mostly because my camera can only record in 5 minute slots and also cause my chip was full at 10 minutes… haha But the drawing i did was of this great picture of Alix of the blog The Cherry Blossom Girl. For the sketch I drew with a sharpie on glass, and then painted with Acrylic after. I think i will be redrawing that picture in a few days on normal paper, not glass… so i will keep you posted. The Video is real simple; i hope you like it :)

  1. Jesus I’m an idiot, i thought you were drawing on some high tech artists pad that was transparent and had all this cool digital numbers on it! Clearly I have a super duper brain

  2. That was awesome. I love how you can see the clock reflecting off the glass. Or that is what I think it was. lol I always love your vids. Even the “ordinary” ones are extraordinary.

  5. You are just SO talented. Every time I visit your site, I am amazed again and again. I’m such a fan. I would be thrilled if someday I have half of your talent.

  6. If only I could draw so easily! It’s a much slower process for me! No one would want to watch me draw or paint for that matter! It’s a joy to watch you work! You are very talented!

    I look forward to more!

  7. I think I lost my comment, so I repeat…hopefully not twice on this post!

    You are so talented! It takes me so much longer to create a work of art! You make it look so easy! It’s a pleasure to watch!

    I look forward to more!

    I like how it looked when you were painting her skin in. It just looked cool.

    Oh, and HI DANNY’s MOM! That was cute that you posted on your awesome artist-dude’s blog… Happy Day-After-Mother’s-Day!

  10. my goodness, danny, that is amazing! Ah i dont know if youve seen lagerfeld confidential (if not, do it!) but theres this bit in there where he is filmed sketching and i have watched it so many times because i love watching people create things… and i really admire you as an artist so I’m so glad you did this! It’s amazing.

  11. Wow, this is great.

    It’s nice to see such existence! Your video leaves me wanting to watch more, almost like voyeurism into your life. It’s so wrong! I’m sorry.

    I hope you continue to make movies, perhaps short films. Just a suggestion!

    So peaceful…

  12. all aspects of this were incredible (even the part about the fact that you love arrested development!). i’ve been toying with the idea of doing a video post on my blog…i’m curious which program you used.
