Parks: Mothers with kids, men reading the papers, and a traditional horn ceremony?

Took one of my usual walks to the High Line and sketched what I saw. I didn't expect to see three people in traditional dress, carrying a ceremonial horn, followed by a crowd of people. Later I googled it:

Revisiting old characters

These two characters are from an idea for a TV series I thought up along time ago and have thought about recently. The drawings on the end are ones that I drew a year or two ago and the middle drawings are the ones I did today, trying to flesh out my idea of the characters. But I'm still not quite there yet with the character designs. I expect a lot more drafts.

Eventually I want to write a script for a pilot episode and then, maybe, if I feel like it will go any where, I would like to animate it.

Backyard Relaxing

I was visiting my boyfriend, Juno, again and we were chilling on the back porch, sketching. His niece (age 2) came outside to see us.

Me: Hey do you know what I'm drawing?
Niece: Trees!
Me: Yeah!
Juno: Grass isn't pink.
Me: That's the shadows, and that's how it works in my world.

The model that likes to stick his butt in the air...

These sketches are from two drawing nights ago, before I went travelings.

See, this model kept sticking his butt up in the air like a cat and it made me laugh. He also did other poses that were funny and so I added speech bubbles.

Going back in Time!

Here are some thumbnails for paintings. If you look closely you will see the thumbnail for the painting that I just posted earlier today. Hahahaha.

Oh that's right....I have a blog

Yeah, I knew I would forget at one time or another to post my daily works. And I did. But I was really art-ing a lot since last post, really I was! Look a painting I did!

The birds who made me smile.

Artistic schlump: that's what I've been up to

So I disappeared to Enola PA last week to visit family. I had a great time, but I've been feeling not that inspired to create art. But here is what I did anyhow.

Watching America's Next Top Model:

I get so glued to this show some times it scares me. Above is what I drew while watching. I'm not sure that I like it.

Idea Fail:

I thought I had an idea for an awesome short film. Then I wrote it down and didn't like it anymore.

Another card:

I made a card for a baby shower. But I know it's hard too see, I didn't think to take a better picture before I licked the envelope.

Some Practice:

I went to the park when I got back to NYC and did some really quick sketches of the people going to work. I wanted to stay and draw more, but my hands froze from the not-really-yet-spring weather.
