Only one life to live. Better than YOLO, right? Eh, same thing.
This month’s theme was patches. A doodle of this idea has been sitting in my sketchbook forever.
I forgot to post artwork I made for SJ Magazine’s Best Dentist feature back in April. Crista, the art director, and David Michael Howarth, the photographer, had photo shoots of local dentists and I illustrated giant dentist tools for them to interact with. This one is my favorite but you can see the five others I did here.
I did type design for SJ magazine’s July cover! #late #JulyWasBusyYo
The only drawing I made during my beach visit. Just got too busy sleeping in the sun.
Progress in working. #WIP
July has been vacation month for me—which means a lot of relaxed drawing for fun. I was out in Portland, OR for 10 days hanging with friends and family, but also attending ICON8. And I’m going to the shore tomorrow, so expect more sketches on my personal blog soon.
See ya at the beach!
Experimented today in Portland’s Rose Garden (at International Rose Test Garden)
Cuddling in summer looks like this, especially if your AC’s broken.
So, I wrote up the prompt for this month’s theme but didn’t follow it at all—eh—it’s still an environment, though. I love this one view of my bedroom and wanted to record the weird angles the attic ceiling makes around the stairway. It was a fun chance to experiment with colors and shapes.
Over and out!
I made a thing. This is it.
The members of Quick Draw Collective posted snapshots of our studios. Here’s my super spacious craigslist desk. I keep it hella tidy, but during projects I like to spread everything out so I can look at all my reference and thumbnails at once. And then I clean it up again.
Still don’t have a computer. BUT DAT SKYLIGHT THO.
This month, I have a few lettering projects in progress. (Yes that’s a baby flipping you off.) And I was the second shooter for two weddings this past weekend. I never imagined doing any sort of photography—it’s never interested me. Editing photos and designing layouts is what I prefer. But now, I have a working knowledge of the fancy cameras.
A quick belated birthday drawing for one of my favorite people on the planet. Back when Sayada and I were in college, she used to wrap her tiny body in a blanket when she got cold, just like this.
Sayada, I need you to know this was so frustrating to color with a mouse. (I still don’t have a computer at home and borrowed my work one after hours to color this.)
For my new job, I’ve been editing photos in Light Room. I honestly don’t know how I’ve lived without this program—it’s wonderful! Color correct EVERYTHING!
Speaking of living without… for most of April I haven’t had a personal computer because mine broke down. It’s made my life simpler and honestly I like it (but I would have died if I didn’t have my smartphone). I’ll buy a new one eventually, but for this month’s theme, I plan on going au-natural. AKA, making a real-life, no-photoshop painting. It’ll be the first one in a long time and I’m excited!
So this is what I’ve been up to; sorry, it’s been a while since I’ve updated.
