Wow, I have totally forgot about this blog thing. I guess I have been spending too much time with my skateboard. Strange thing for a 33 year old to be doing, eh? Seems a lot of us that skated in the 70's, 80's and 90's are rediscovering the joy we had from rolling around on a skateboard. That and the increase in the amount of concrete wonderlands called skate parks popping up everywhere. It helps that a high school friend is still a pro skateboarder who is very encouraging. :) I have been meeting people older than me, and some a little younger that have recently picked up the skateboard again after a number of years.

Well, I guess I better start producing some more sketches and such.

Screen Cap Sketch

Even though I see a few things wrong, as far as faithful reproduction of the screen cap, I like this image. It could be stronger, but that is why we sketch sketch sketch, right? To find out the what, how, and why something works, or doesn't work.

Just a quick sketch (with a little photo ref) to try out my new Tombow 6B pencil. I already draw with their 4B pencil. Love them both. I have watched part of the Vilppu video on gesture drawing, and thought about what he said about feeling the curves of the model you are drawing with your pencil. It felt a little more alive to me as I was drawing. Not sure the result bears that out.

Test! Test! Is this thing on?

I've had this blog thing for a few years now. I got it at first to just be able to comment on a few blogs I read. Now I almost feel like I have something to say. I hope to use this blog to keep track of what I am doing artistically, and maybe post up what I am doing with my website. At this very moment, I am going to hop into bed and sleep.
