A Model Skeleton

Hey, Hey, Hey. How are you all doing today?! Wow, i had a long one. Been working a lot lately… How is the week going for you? Anything exciting happening? The drawing today brings back old memories; i drew this almost 3 years ago in Volume 1 of my Character Sketchbook. I actually don’t have the original drawing of this anymore, I gave to Gemma Ward a year and a half ago when she and Sophie came over. We were sitting going through the Character Sketchbook drawings, which was really fun and interesting cause i love sharing my drawing with my drawing subject-matter! But anyways, she picked this one out as one of her favorites, so i gave it to her. Awe, good times. Shoot, makes me miss my Australian sista Sophie so much ;( Well, my friends, i hope you enjoy this line drawing!

Lily & Gemma Book Drawing 100

Wow! Today went by quicker and longer than i expected. You know those kind of days? Well, i just had one of them. Spent the day drawing and catching up on work and emails. Also, spent a little time looking through some of the NYFW shows i didn’t go to… I have to say, i sure wish i had gone the Rodarte show! I mean, wow! They busted out the sharpie and went to town! haha The Collection is so awesome! It looked like some of the hair and make up was inspired by Tavi’s amazing Borders & Frontiers shirt ;) Well, tonight i present you with Drawing 100 which is the last drawing out of Volume one of “The Character Sketchbook“. It’s a couple years old now… but it’s always fun looking through that book… I really hope you like it! :) P.S. I picked up my artwork from the art show tonight. I was like a kid in a candy store to have all the framed pieces back home.

Back in the Day

Oh wow… boy, do I miss the days back a few years ago when i started the Character Sketchbook. I was going through the old book today, and it brought back so many memories. It was so basic and simple, with so many accidents and freakish mess-up drawings… That strangely enough work… Lately, i’ve been longing to go back to that place, so i think i might! Starting at where i’m at, number #204, i’m going back to simple pen drawings! So, i hope you like #13. It’s what brought me back to my roots today! i’m hoping to do an art show displaying numbers 1-200 in order, within this year… so we will see. i will keep you all posted. Well, good night to you all my friends! Thanks for everything.

Gemma and the Cello

Oh, how the Gemma and the Cello drawing makes me miss my good friend Sophie Ward. This was one of her old favorite paintings out of Volume 1 of the Character Sketchbook. I think it’s both of our goals to be able to play the cello some day. How amazing is the cello? This drawing is number 94 out of Vol. 1. How are you all doing? How are you enjoying all the Fashion Shows? Any of you excited about the NEW A CAMP ALBUM! Nina Persson is one of my all time favorite voices! i’m excited to be home painting tomorrow! Well, sorry for my random commentary! Woot, woot. Night/goodmorning!

I’m glad you like that picture. A lot of you wanted to see the full painting, so i decided to post a link to it.The drawing i posted today is an early drawing out of my Character Sketchbook.

Happy, happy Monday to you all. How was your weekend? Is Christmas approaching making your life a little more hectic? It is for me, but Christmastime is hectic; i guess “It’s the most wonderful kind of hectic of the year” (sung in Andy Williams voice) i have a bigger “to do” list than Santa this year. The only downside is, i don’t get a plate of cookies once it’s done… hah Well, the picture today is out of Volume one of my Character Sketchbook. i hope you like it. It’s an oldie but goodie. I also posted a new picture in my Image Diary. It’s a little out take of some pictures me and my Bro were talking for my new Lookbook account. Oh yea! i have a account! hahah It should be fun. i only have one picture up right now. Oh, and lastly, one of my best friends Mr Jason Jones has a new Blog. Some of you might remember him from when i posted his work a few months ago. He is incredible, so cleaver and fun. He has clothes and accessories for sale. They’re amazing! Please check them out. his blog is Lorem & Ipsum. P.S. Thank you to all who have been ordering prints! Your support has been an amazing Christmas present for me.

Well, my friends, i think i’m off for now. Be back soon enough. I think I’m going to be going into the “experimental stage” soon, which means i might have some new techniques to show you all! :)
