. . . . .total insperation,
Check out my sketchbook
kennygeeze: The attached image is actually more of the direction I'm going in. I'm sick of drawing real looking stuff just because I can.
Traveler: I had a lot of fun doing that hair.. Thanks for stopping by
marc_redd: I'm flattered! Thank you so much!
AndreRuben: I'm working on it. I have fun drawing girls and faces.. but I lose the passion as soon as they have to have some purpose. Words, design, and patterns are really what I love.. we'll see where things go!
My scanner does not like yellow highlighter or glitter.. both of which are contained in the original.
Oh my GOSH... Week five of my last year of school ALREADY.. I can't believe I've had this thread up since before I was even accepted into the program... Clearly have no posted enough. I am soon starting a blog to document my thesis exploration. Wow!
So here's some stuff that's been going down in my 'Subconscious Sketchbook' class:
Stuff! Lots of stuff!!!
I took a break from doing observational drawing due to mega frustration... and finally got to the point where I felt like a part of me was missing, so I am finally reintroducing this element. I am so happy.
I like your sketchbook. It is very individualist.
you are defiantly an artist. Reminds me of being in school and getting lost in my sketchbook. Keep it up, I think you have a very unique style.
i really like your style , kinda symbolic and warm environment , your drawings is bests for story books i guess . keep up the good work .
I love your moleskine, must be very interesting to look through. I struggle to attain the immiediacy of your sketches (especially your inks) so kudos on that! Keep on working hard and I'll be back to check this one out - oh and good luck with your 10,000 hours!
Long time no see hope you are still drawing away!
Always skilfully done, lovely stuff!
Can I ask what kind of pens you use? Sorry if you already said.
larchist: What pens DON'T I use? Haha.. I have a serious pen-buying addiction. I cannot walk into an office supply store without buying a pack. My favourite ballpoint is Zebra F-402; I also regularly use an assortment of Bic and Staedtler ballpoints, Staedtler fineliners, Pilot liquid liners, Copic markers, watercolours, Faber-Castell, Crayola, Martha Stewart (believe it or not), Prismacolour, and my new fave Tombo ABT.
So, WHOA! She's back!
I return to my beloved CA with a DEGREE in Illustration! Crazy-ass sh*t!
I will still post here, still on this same sketch thread that has my pre-illy work, still has my portfolio, and I will continue to share my journey now that I am entering "The Real World" dun dun dun...
On my bookshelves and desk there are currently about 8 sketchbooks and journals that range from half-complete to barely begun and I'm going to try to (mostly) put it all aside to start fresh.
I've got one book that is going to accompany me every other Wednesday night when I make the trek out to Toronto to meet up with an amazing group of people for drinks & drawing. I plan to give myself no rules for this book and allow anything to happen, including other's handywork, grocery lists, whatever.
Another, I JUST peeled the cellophane off my last untouched Moleskine sketchbook that was sitting on my shelf (I bought a bunch with coupons over the last year). This one, this is where the good energy is going to flow. It's been so long since I've had a book where I've been proud of almost every page. That's what this is going to be - I'm putting that intention out there.
There is a little part of me that hates how I love the Moleskine so much. I hate how typical it is, but f*ck.. it's like the perfect sketchbook. The ratio of the dimensions, the thick paper that does lovely things to my watercolours, the discreet black cover (that usually ends up covered in stickers), and I have a shelf that fits them perfectly. I also hate the price, but having friends that work at Indigo (discount!) that like to gift me - I guess the world is perfect again.
Sooooooooooo.. here I am! And here's a little I've done in the month since I've been off school.
I like your typo-ideas as well! Keep on posting!
I've absolutely fallen in love with your work! Your sketchbook is incredibly inspiring. I've always loved typography and including words in pieces and I adore the way you execute that and do it in such a personal & poppy style.
Keep up the great work, and congratulations on the Illustration degree!
Thanks surus! Even though I'm not posting much, I'm drawing like crazy!
NestsInElms, you make me blush! I strive to keep it personal, seems to be the best way to connect with the world.
Still working away on the collab book, I went wild after browsing through one of my newest art books, "Naïve" - a collection of folk and vintage inspired illustration and graphic design. Following the type-sesh I filled a bunch of pages with narrative images which is soooooo not me. I've had an incredible few weeks and decided to record the memories with images instead of words.. maybe I'll get the guts to post those some other time. For now, here's a bit more of my foot obsession.
