Mitch tagged me for a six word memoir. Took a little thought and this is what I came up with. We Want You! come back tomorrow...

2. Post it on your blog and include a visual illustration if you’d like.
3. Link to the person who tagged you in your post and to this original post , if possible, so we can track it as it travels across the blogosphere.

Recent Sketches

These are some recent sketches I did. The dog, Sidney, is my neighbor's. I pet sat her not too long ago. She was very mopey the first couple of days but she cheered up after a bit. The rest are out of my small sketchbook. I drew these while waiting at work at CFA. None of the subjects knew they were being drawn.

I thought I'd put up a little design, it took long enough. I really like art nouveau design and a lot of the architecture. I like art nouveau drawings on a completely superficial level. The simplicity of line that is very organic combining over and over makes for some cool drawings. I drew this from a design I found on the internet. I learned a lot from copying it. The stick man wasn't in the original.

My first ever political cartoon. Not a fan of Gene Nichols firing by the BOV.

I drew a sketch of a man that I always see in the library. He has a very interesting body, he is obese and fairly short, has an interesting beard and greasy slicked back hair. I see him a lot but this time he was sleeping in one of the chairs. He was there long enough for me to make a sketch in my small sketchbook. This is a quick painting in Painter over the scanned sketch I did. I am fascinated by strange, unique and interesting bodies and faces. Eventually I want to ask the guy to pose for me for a larger oil painting or something. Sometime...

Mika commented on an earlier post and I thought I would give it a try. It was a good idea, thanks! This is the result. Also, the post I put up earlier today was supposed to be titled Feb 8th not Jan 9th. I'm an idiot.

Jan 9

I just got back from a trip to Providence to visit a school that I am thinking about attending. The New School of Classical Art is what its called and can been investigated here: Anyway, I got to take the morning class with the other students. It was a life drawing class and she had me use sight-size method. Here is the result of the three hour class.
