i'm finally getting some small projects finished up, so i thought i would put the ukulele away for a couple of hours and sit down and draw something fun... just for me. i would like to improve upon my pen and ink, portraiture, and crosshatching/shading skills, and this was a good way to practice all three.
jack kerouac was one of my favorite writers in high school, and i just think he is dreamy as a young man. there are some things i don't like about the portrait, it's kind of heavy handed, but a good start, and i think i learned quite a bit from it. pigma micron and india ink in sketchbook.
wow, i really haven't posted here in a long time. with my drawing class this spring and other things going on, i lost focus, but i'm going to try harder... i was just messing around last night, copying some drawings of the avett brothers (well, bob and seth...)
i have still been posting every week at smilepolitely.com though. my new entries go up on wednesdays now. (it used to be fridays)
i have been working on some really exciting stuff for nic and heather of the band you & yourn... hope to be able to share it soon!
my friends nic and heather of the band casados, along with some of their other friends, have started a group called the shadowboxer collective. every month or so, the collective will organize a concert at a local joint that is focused on mellow, low-fi music. it should be really great... i'm looking forward to them! in the meantime, nic has asked me to do some of the artwork.... here is my first-ever concert poster!:
