#351 – A dream reborn!

Could it be?At last, our long national nightmare is over!  It has been over two months of acute mental anguish following the crushing news of December 13th.  But now a glorious new dawn breaks!  Sing sweetly, oh songbirds of love (and multinational brand posturing)!

#350 – Keep on truckin’

Keep on truckin'Pretty great Sunday morning — Kelly and I went for a walk to get some breakfast, then just kinda kept walking.  By the time we got home, six hours had gone by.  Not bad for a pregnant woman!

(Also, I sure hope this visual reference makes sense to people, because if it doesn’t, this must look like a mighty weird drawing!)

#349 – Clenched and ready

SumoWatched a documentary this evening about sumo wrestling, among other things.  So when it came time for the sketch, I figured I’d go with a subject that’s rich in unique visuals.  You’re welcome.

Sketch is based on this great Flickr photo.

#348 – Kebab factory

LambI didn’t know what to draw this evening, so my helpful wife made a suggestion:  why not do something related to our delicious dinner?

#347 – Jacob

JacobIt seems like forever since I’ve done any live figure drawing. This was done in class this evening, based on one of my Art Center classmates.  An interesting guy, as you can no doubt tell.

#346 – Bloodbath (of sorts)

SiegfriedOkay, so back to classwork, and the final installment of the Siegfried story.  After Part 1 and Part 2, the dragon is dead.  Then, as the story goes, the hero bathes in the dragon’s blood to make himself invincible.  That seemed a little much for me, so I went with a somewhat more reserved face-painting.

#345 – Rock hound

MSRI wish I had more time at the moment for personal sketches, but such is life.  This is a little thing for work — I’m doing a motion graphics piece about Mars Sample Return, a proposed robotic mission that would bring back rock samples to Earth for the first time.  These are a few of the simple elements that will become part of that video.  (Actually, it’s a very simplified version of the redacted Sketch #95 from last summer.)

#344 – Hope you enjoy your stay!

Charlie pushed into roomYet another frame from this storyboard assignment.  Sorry, but there are about 50 of these I have to do this week, and I haven’t had much time for other sketches.  Anyway, in the story flow, this one shortly follows Sketch #338.  Our drunk thug suddenly shoves the main character into the darkened motel room, where he promptly trips over the bullet-riddled body of the retired cop.  Nice people doing nice things.

#343 – What gives?

Charlie confusedWell, the weekend can’t last forever.  Back to the storyboard assignments.  This is another excerpt from the crime story from Sketches 337, 338 and 339.  (Early in the story, the family man runs into the drunk in the bar, and the latter starts to walk away in the middle of the conversation.)

#342 – Power up!

PowerupLate tonight I felt like staying up and playing some old 80’s video games — but I still needed a sketch for the day.  First things first.
