taking a break from their crime spree:

Day 11: Ampersketch
Ampersand from across the room

Day 12: Mr. Dignity
Interro shamelessly offering his belly up for rubbing

Day 13: Three-armed cat
Ampersand moved around while I sketched, resulting in a third arm


I don’t want your strange cake from Brooklyn! November 14, 2009

YES! Finishing Week 2 all caught up!

The title of this post is a quote from Gabourey Sidibe and is taken from the AV Club’s interview with Lee Daniels and Gabby. I haven’t seen Precious (the last movie I saw in a theater was Up—now out on DVD!), but I keep coming across Gabby’s interviews and enjoying the hell out of them. Monique is in Precious as well, and I got the reference for her sketch from the same New York Times Magazine article, but she came out looking a little Fembot-ish. Doesn’t do the Robert Maxwell photo justice at all. I drew Jessica Valenti of Feministing from a higher-res picture and larger on the page, which is probably the way to go.

In fact, I have a big ol’ 11 in. × 14 in. pad I should probably have the gonads to use now that we’re halfway through DrawMo!

Drawing at work November 14, 2008

This little drawing was made here at work. We have this series of books where I have ended up making the tiny vignette on the cover. It hasn’t been approved yet, so the colors and stuff might change a bit on the final version, but I thought it might be fun to se what it is (more or less) going to look like when finished.

The previous books can be seen here.

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.

seat 9B

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.

been busy as trying to set up an ebay shop, so while I’ve done my drawings I haven’t made time to post them (tsk tsk). They’re all on flickr, but I’ll just post a couple that I don’t hate here.





Drawing #13: Carmen

Filed under: .Cindy,Day 13 — Cynthia Closkey @ 12:34 am

Carmen, originally uploaded by cynthiacloskey.

Drawn from a photo of my brother’s dog. The photo had been scanned into a computer and made monochrome, then printed. Somewhere along the way it picked up a blue tint in some of the shadows.

Carmen wasn’t the world’s smartest dog, but she was a sweetie.

Boy, is it easier to draw looking at a photo! Nothing in the image moves and confuses me.


Joining Drawmo Terribly Late November 16, 2007

I’ve been lurking in the background of Drawmo, sending drawings to the Flickr group as I post drawings for Nablopomo.   And I’ve been giving the drawings away as postcard art.

Here’s the latest free postcard art– our leftover coconut cake is lucky number thirteen. Enter by commenting on the post in my blog and emailing a delivery address, just like it says here.
