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.

OMG pick a winner already!

Owens, Hoffman and Scozzafava

I also jammed out to this song on repeat while sketching tonight:

In my defense, they do keep sitting in my line of sight.

Flicker and...

We had solar panel installed in August on the roof above the family and kitchen. I don’t really think about them except today there was quite a ruckus going on. At first I thought it might be a squirrel running around on the roof. It wasn’t long before I discovered that it was a pair of Flickers. I know during mating season they chase each around – I assume that’s what they were doing. Great, something to worry about, can solar panels be damaged by dancing red-shafted flickers?

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.

I need to update my profile picture, so I thought I’d draw it first. I got the frame proportions wrong, and everything is shortened. That had a sweet effect on my face, so what I had intended as a pure, unidealized copy of my picture ended up quite elsewhere.

The print in the background is one my parents gave me for Christmas last year. It’s of two women with hats in a red room, apparently at tea, one with her eyeglasses on the table. these women are relaxing, and when I try to imagine myself relaxing the way they are, I find it impossible. They fascinate me.


Days 6-10 November 12, 2007

Still behind, but less so. Lessons of the weekend’s drawing: curves are hard to draw well, and objects with both curves and straight lines are really hard to draw well.

Day 6
Generic Battery

Day 7

Day 8

Day 9

Day 10
Kitchen Sink

Time to play catchup.


Trying to make use of everything in my drawing box at least once. Unfortunately, there’s a carton of 4 cheap crayons in my kit (the result of my inability to throw things away). Red, yellow, blue, and green. What to do with them? Well…draw like a child, I guess.

Previous days’ sketches behind the cut, so as not to be a visual hog.  When seen altogether, it’s clear I’m a mixed bag when it comes to style.
