I’ve been scanning and showing you all my different sketchbooks. There are still a few more.
There’s still the “Old Sketch Book” which i should be posting soon, and my “Book of Figure Drawing” which… well i’m not sure if i will ever post that! haha. But the Book I’m posting from today is my weird book. I created this book in 2004, and i think i pretty much did it in one day. i was in a weird mood and i just started doodling and doodling and this book was the product of it.
For those who have been the Italian restaurant “Di Buca Di Beppo” you know that every square inch of the place is covered in old photo’s. And basically old 20’s-30’s photo’s are on of my favorite things in the world. So Last year i went there with a bunch of friends and they sat us in this big booth, and gave us crayons and paper menus. To me when that happens my body can’t resist the pull or the longing… it’s like the greatest formula for the most terribly fun experience. Crayons and old pictures! yea i’m getting excited just thinking about it right now. so needless to say the drawings above are the result of the incredible night.
A few years a ago i started a journal… and i’m not one who sits and journals much, i usually sit and think. I wasn’t really sure what the point of writing my thoughts down was. Any ways, so i thought instead of starting a journal i would make a book of “love”. And instead of writing it to myself i would write it for my ” true love ” whoever that may be. Haha ok now i’m feeling a little too sappy. Hahah…
but any ways here are some drawings out of it. some of it has been blacked out cause it’s private, sorry about that.
hello friends. this sketch is one i did last year.
it’s from a vogue cover. I thought i would take a picture of it as well as posting a scan,
so you could see the size. sorry the pictures out of focus. i’m home alone working, so set the camera on my tv and set the timer…
haha and my lens is only manual focus…haha made it tough. yea kinda busy working right now. but can’t wait to show you this illustration i’m working on. it’s a 5 figure illustration 4 girls and one guy. got the concept sketch done now just redrafting and figuring out which models i’m going to use. :) i hope everyone is having a wonderful day!
Well… i start this painting/illustration like 4-5 months ago. but than i started the book and haven’t been able to work on it.she is my long lost picture. the girl in the pictures name is Josette, she is from this book series i’ve been dying to write. it will consist of about eight books. but yea i thought i would introduce you all to my little josette. Oh yea i designed the dress based of old persian patterns and architecture.
well Hilde, asked to see this drawing cause it’s in the backround of the picture with Little Miette. so here it is. It;s from my “Lily and Gemma Book” thus the page number. oh for thoses who are confused…. i know i’ve called this book a couple of names,”The Lily and Gemma Book” and also “The Character Sketchbook” , but there’s a reason for the two names. The original name of the book was “The Lily and Gemma Book” because when i started the book it i only drew Lily Cole and Gemma ward in it in order to cut down on variables and monitor my drawing progress and evolution. but as the book went on and as my drawings started improving i ended up adding a few others lovely individuals like Sophie Ward, and Heather Marks to name a few. but now i’m not sure what the new name of the book should be… my first thought was character Sketchbook, but i’m definately not sold on the name… any sugestions i would love some. To see more from Volume 1 and Volume 2
In honor of the end of the V Magazine Modeling Competition Ending today i did theses Pictures of Laurel Stovall. if you haven’t voted for her please Vote! Oh also the second picture up here was my first attemp at painting. i know it’s kinda raw…. but i guess it’s a step. it my goal to get good at painting… so expect to see so Raw Paintings, cause it will probably take me a while to get it down. hope yawl are having a great day.
P.s. Stacy Dupree Sent me the first 5 song demos for up our coming Siren Project … needless to say this is all i’ve been listening to. the songs are Brilliant! if you guys aren’t familiar with the band that stacy is in, Eisley, check them out! but yea i’m really excited. i can’t wait till this project is done and you all get to hear the music ready the story and see the art…. i hope i haven’t given too much away… hahah
