More sketching

For the past...two days, after class, I've been traveling around the Ringling campus with my friend John Carvajal. We visit any place that has interesting subjects (you can call them people if you'd like) and just draw them. Tonight we visited FEWS which is a figure drawing workshop held every....well I'm not exactly sure when it's held. I think it's every day or week?....idk, but I should attend it more often. We both got to draw a model, which is nice because we don't have any figure studio classes at the moment. Most importantly I get to work in my sketchbook. The sketchbook to me has been something of a companion lately, as it should've been along time ago. I'm really trying to develop my skills as an observer while trying to work on things that are purely imaginative. Drawing from life helps me to draw what I want out of my mind. It expands my visual library so that I have more information to pull from when sketching something. Here's what I did today.

Sketch dump!

Here are a bunch of pages from this current sketchbook. The first image was created last semester at some point. The last one was created today so it's ordered chronologically. The real abstract one and the one after that we're a fun experiment. The weird line one is abstract shapes and lines i saw in my mind or on the inside of my eye lids. the second one I wanted to see if I could draw my surroundings with my eyes closed. So it's kind of a memory exercise only I intentionally didn't give myself enough time to take in every object. Also, I mostly only drew my legs cuz I was anxious to see the results. Next time I will try it again. Enjoy!

Mega update!

So it's been quite a while since my last update so I apologize for that. However, I have been busy with things. Here are some sketchbook pages along with the progress for a piece I'm working on inspired by the game Superbrothers: Sword and Sworcery (first image). A well spent five dollars on the App Store. Check it out. It also has a badass soundtrack by Jim Guthrie, I also purchased that. I will resume my regular posting cycle from now on. See you soon.
Oh and the last image is a drawing I did on the game DrawSomething. Just thought I would post that for fun.

I love monotypes! Here's a few I've made in the past week. The two similar ones are part of a triptych that will be for sale, so if you're interested comment or email me. The middle one will also be for sale and it's actually one of my favorites that I've made. I will be posting more monotypes in the very near future.

Senior Self Portrait

Here is my senior self portrait. I had something similar yet almost completely different in my mind when starting this one but I'm happy with where it is now.

The mountain-side people of Joobah Doobeh
lived on the terrain of the old riverbed
they prodded and poked at all things unknown
till they came across one that would poke in their homes
a giant of sorts with such monstrous hands
with teeth large enough to chew up a mini-van
his feet were ginormous and smelly at that
at least he looked stylish in his giant red hat.

A piece I made for my thesis. It's part of a children's book I'm working on.

Update 1

Painted at a fundraiser. Auction two paintings (one of which is showed below). Made some monotypes (doughnuts) and found a crab. More updates soon.
