Today's drawings are a snapshot in an illustrated life - mine, to be precise! The only seasonings needed are love and humor.
While my first whiteboard cartoon animation is fairly simple, I think the medium has lots of potential. I'll be posting more animations on my Youtube site.
The long and short of it...face types, that is. Because beauty is often found in irregularities.
Just a few of the multi-cultural faces that make up the city I love and call home!
- bleed-proof, wrinkle-free pages which allow you to draw/paint on both sides of each page
- discreet size (perfect for a pocket or purse)
- sewn binding for open-flat access
I’ve discovered that I’m sort of addicted to sketching in public (or, to be more precise, sketching THE public.) I find it immensely appealing and gratifying because it:
- forces you to get faster with your gestures
- puts you in the moment
- makes waiting for the subway/train/plane fun
- gives you lots of free subject matter
- provides a record of your travels
As I flip back through this particular sketchbook I’m transported to our flight to Paris in June and walks along the Seine and in the Jardin du Luxembourg, then back to the cafes along Central Park, then to our hotel room in Saratoga, NY (for lots of TV watching of the Democratic and Republican conventions) and on to a very relaxing week spent in NH at my mom’s cottage. The last few pages are filled with my favorite subject – fellow commuters on the subway as I make my way around NYC.
It's too hot for hats in the Big Apple but not for my fashionistas on paper....
It's girls' night in and I'm watching...
A few of this past week's sketches...
A few of my (imaginary) friends...
This week my sketching focus was more on bodies and on...men! Here are some of the results...
