taking a break from their crime spree:
Goldilocks and the 23rd District November 13, 2009
So the weird 2009 election in Upstate New York’s 23rd District gets weirder. Meanwhile, I’m playing catch-up for three negligent days. So, here’s sketches for Days 9, 10 & 11. Pretty obvious I drew them in one sitting and got more involved/attentive as I drew from right to left. Hoffman, in the middle, was the most fun to draw and is the most Tea Party-tastic of the bunch. Here’s a link to the AP photo from the Washington Post I used as a reference.
I also jammed out to this song on repeat while sketching tonight:
This is yesterday’s. The Tarxien Venus November 12, 2009
I put it in DrawMo at Flickr, but forgot to put it here. Sorry.
Obviously another variation on the Velazquez, but in this case employing motifs from ancient sculpture (the hugely hipped Mother) and my Maltese lycanthropic cycle.

Catching up … once again November 14, 2008
I’m not even going to prendend I did these sketches one day at a time. Hehe. Went to a really inspiring lecture yesterday about Magazine Design, and listen to Art Directors from Real Simple, GQ, Esquire, Wired and W talk, and while they talked I drew them.
This is Niels Bøje Ziegler from Denmark who put together the program of the day, and Eva Spring from Real Simple.
And this is Anton Loukhnovets from Gentlemen’s Quarterly, who drank an enourmous amount of water (from a Vodka bottle) during his speach. I don’t know how he managed to get it all down. Must have been close to a liter in less than one hour. Impressive. (And so was his work.)
Here we have Scott Dadich from Wired. His speach was one of the best of the day I think. Made me want to go out and buy Wired.
This is David Cucurito from Esquire. I admit I probably added a few pounds to his actual weight.
He was the most energetic speaker yesterday, and moved around a lot.
And this is Nathalie Kirsheh from W. She was not moving at all.

The back of Daniel A.’s head, drawn during today’s lecture. Better than last week’s sketch from the same class.

Travelin’ November 19, 2007
I spent part of last week traveling, and discovered that an airline seat is actually a good place for drawing. A few impressions, in no particular order.
What I could see on the flight out.
A traveling companion. I meant to sketch him in different settings during my trip, but failed.
The warning panel over my seat.
A very chatty, very loud, very tall woman spent much of my flight talking to someone in first class. She actually did exist in three dimensions, despite what this drawing might suggest.
