The dying Gaul actually survived and became a Nonconformist minister in Newcastle. November 2, 2009
Colita / Stubby November 1, 2009
This is a sort of palimpsest, an older work with text upon which I have added new text (the Spanish text), dark lines in marker, a couple of stray blue acrylic marks, and a thickish white acrylic wash.
Today November 26, 2008
In class today we had a visiting speaker from the New York Times who sat while showing us their website. This resulted in some interesting contortions, such as cross-body mousing.
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.
Daniel November 11, 2008
The back of Daniel A.’s head, drawn during today’s lecture. Better than last week’s sketch from the same class.
Hear No Evil November 8, 2008
On Thursday, I left my sketchbook sitting on the scanner at work, so no drawing. Then Friday, I just didn’t get around to drawing. Today, though—sixteen sketches. Albeit small, sloppy ones.
I’m working with three classmates on a video project, and this week we had to draw storyboards for our piece. The guys wrote a script on Thursday, while I had a prior engagement. Today we split the script up into four chunks, and each of us drew the panels for one section. My first four panels are above; the rest are on Flickr: pages 2, 3, 4. The whole storyboard is in this PDF.
The gist of the story is that this guy (ML, aka Male Lead) discovers that his headphones allow him to hear other people’s thoughts—but only negative ones.
Next week, we’re somehow going to try to shoot this thing, in the subway.
Catching up November 7, 2008
Phew! Tried very hard to find something other to draw than people at coffeehouses, but after ending up with my own left hand on wednesdays sketch I was back drinking coffee yesterday. I must take a look around the house and see if I can’t find some objects worth spending time on. Some kitchen utensils perhaps. And next week I’m considering throwing in some colors too. Not making any promises but I will try …
Terrible in-class drawing November 4, 2008
Let’s just pretend that my drawing today looks like this one, instead.
Communications Lab November 3, 2008
The view from where I sit in my Monday night class. Nearly everybody has his or her laptop open in all but one of my classes (fewer people bother in the fourth class, because the Internet access in that room is for shit). This is the only class, though, where probably half of my fellow students spend the 2.5 hours chatting with each other over Gmail. I’ve also seen people playing solitaire, and doing their homework. It’s that much fun.
Sad. And expensive.
I don’t use my laptop in class, because I know it’ll just distract me.
Bonus: I’m also responsible for this beautiful illustration, which I did on DrawMo! Eve.
Late start, but at least a start!
Made two drawings on my way to work today. A good excuse to stop for a nice cup of coffee. Must buy a new sketchbook later today, as the old one only has one page left. As it happens I love to buy art supplies, so I’m not complaining.
