Not a Pin-Up

I've gotten tired of pin-up girls on bikes images. Crazy, I know, but there it is. So I decided to do something with a more stand-offish pose to the "girl". And made her a robot. I like the idea that perhaps she once had a skin covering, in the human sense, but the years have worn that away. All that is left is the strip of vanity that is her face...

Monkey on the Right

This image, which you will note I have appropriated for this blog's header, is a beer label for a brew my brother has made for our father's birthday. We decided to name the beer in French to make it sound classy and European, as opposed to ironic and from San Francisco.

Sketches from Figure Drawing Sessions, etc.

Random sketches...

CS Long Beach - another session, I forget when. Some time in 2008.

Drawings of a friend - in two totally very different circumstances. On the left is fishing off Newport pier, and on the right is New Years 2007 in Hollywood...

Cal State Long Beach - This model is by far one of my favorites. Exceptional poses, and during this session we were running late, and he volunteered to skip his break to finish the pose. Respect.

Sketches from the Medusa Lounge

And for my inaugural image post - albeit god knows how many months late - I choose drawings of girls. No big surprise there. These were done at Dr. Sketchy LA's Medusa Lounge session in July. It was my first time attending a Dr. S session, and it was a blast! I mean, how can you go wrong with an open bar, full menu, and table service AS YOU DRAW. In a nifty gothic lounge setting. Very nice. The models were OK, but not great, choosing to use very static poses for the 1 - 2 minute sessions. Guess thats where the beer came in handy to make things more interesting...
