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 …


Late start, but at least a start! November 3, 2008

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.

Green Fluevog

I work a block away from a Fluevog store, and I’ve been eyeing these pumps for months. Every time there’s a sale, I go in to check the price. This style never goes on sale. So today I finally bit the bullet, tried them on, and bought them.

The polka dots belong to a Douglas Coupland coffee table that’s at the office where I do some of my freelance work. The white on the left is my sketchbook, open on my knee.

I used a mix of pen and colored pencil, because I needed brown. My mini-pen set doesn’t contain any browns, as I’ve complained many times, but the pencil set at the office had two.

Ice cream eaters - sketch 1 - cropped

Because I am a lousy art director, I had to do a couple of drawings for work this weekend. I’m not happy with them, but I certainly did draw them. Over and over and over . . .

The final version of the one above is at Flickr, along with two intermediate steps and another lousy piece.

It’s much easier to just hire someone else to do it. I wish I could remember that for more than five minutes.

I love the Christmas flavors at Starbucks. Today was a gingerbread soy latte, no foam, thank you very much.
