Pen under a urinal

I have a terrible habit of touching things i shouldn't. I also have a terrible(though, quite useful) habit of picking up any potential drawing tool i can find.

I didn't end up picking up the pen.

Here's the second finished page of the mini comic I'm working on. Its about a depressing thing i wrote five or so years ago when i was lonely, depressed and doing drugs consistently. its fun to dig up these memories when you're so far past them.

I'm happier with this one than the last but there's still a bunch of room for improvement. Its actually really exciting to be making a ton of mistakes and trying to come up with solutions for them.

Back to the life drawing board

30 sec gesture

10 min

1 min gesture

Just a couple sketches from today. I like doing quick gestures the most, like the top one, the energy is fun. Though, I think I lose it in the longer poses because my weaknesses really shine through. I need to understand how the body fits together better to really be able to make nice drawings.

I say it every semester, this being the last, i think i should make the effort to go to life drawing more often.

Beginning of an ending

I'm sure this is incoherent to anyone who is not me, or does not know me very well. So, apologies! anyways...

I've started officially working on a mini comic. This is the first completed page, though, i have a couple more started and thumbnails of a few more. The mini will be a bunch of very short autobiographical stories probably no longer than one or two pages that will hopefully make some sort of cohesive sense when put together. The point is to capture life as it happens. to capture the inane day to day moments and musings that make up our lives. that's what really interests me.

In preparation for the cooking zine that my girlfriend Lisa and I are in the process of making we have decided to take up bookbinding. We’re starting off pretty simple, doing passport sized blank notebooks (or sketchbooks for us artist types). We’ve been using printer paper for the insides and card stock for the cover.

Once you have the right tools and a little practice it’s insanely addictive and fun. The night we started I was so stoked about learning how to do it that I took some Jim Flora Album cover prints and made a small pile of mini sketchbooks (as seen above) which I intend to give out to a couple of friends.

Already I’ve started thinking about binding larger books. I want to take some old vintage books that are on their last legs and recycle them in to one of a kind sketchbooks that I will hopefully actually use.

Yeah. Fun fun.
