For your viewing pleasure: Nubile, young lasses.

Still working out the kinks. Especially on the second one.


Been having a lot of fun with this. No thinking, just sitting back, relaxing and letting the shapes guide me.

Monthly Fashion Meetup

Last Sunday, I attended the Monthly Fashion Drawing Meetup hosted by Geoffry Gertz and Christopher Musci. Great experience. Loved the space, model and all the well-considered, fun-to-draw ensembles. I'm pretty darn rusty when it comes to drawing fashion (as you can tell from previous posts, I'm way more enthusiastic about fleshier subjects - oh Aviva! you are missed!) but am hoping that I'll get my mojo back with a little practice.

And while we're on the topic, here's some digital fashion croquis I did for Gap a while back.

30 seconds in HEAVEN

I went to the Pratt Draw-A-Thon a few months back and came to a few realizations:
a. college students look really freakin' young.
b. there is no way I can even begin to pass for one.
c. I am no longer willing to wait on line for a slice of free, cold pizza.
d. kids + booze = vomit
e. (always check for vomit before stepping into an elevator, especially on a college campus)
f. i LOVE LOVE LOVE drawing 30-second poses. Here are a few from that night.

Francie and Budda

You know how you totally can't wait to wash your hair or take a shower when you've gotten a new, exciting bottle of product to try? Well that's how I felt when I drew these after coming home from buying supplies at Pearl this afternoon.

Guide Dog on the 2 Train

I get ├╝ber jazzed whenever I see a dog on the subway. I pretty much have to sit on my hands (or in this case, pick up my sketchbook) to keep from shnuzzling a beast while on the job.

Cute is in the eye of the beholder

I drew these critters while talking down a hysterical, earthquake, tsnami and impending nuclear disaster addled Jro on Skype for hours and freakin' HOURS on end.
I don't find them particularly cute, but Jro loved them when she saw them sitting on my desk.
It's my attempt to forgo neoteny and still make y'all go "AWWWWW".

Drawing in Dumbo

I drew at Studio 514 yesterday. There was just a handful of us in a big, bright studio and the model and setup were both great. The snacks were delicious too. Lavender goat cheese? Genius!
(note to self: NOT genius with kalamata olive tapenade)
Steve and Liam, you totally outdid yourselves.
An exaggerated drawing of the model.
And a slightly more realistic 10-minute sketch. I was listening to the Charlie Sheen Porn Star Beauty Pageant while drawing and it's all I can think of when I look at these. Winning!

Just 'cause I haven't been posting doesn't mean I haven't been drawing.
this lady was awesome! wish i had some watercolors on hand. she was wearing a bright green coat with a yellow patterned scarf and hot pink and black skirt. sounds like a train wreck, but trust me, she was workin' it.

No one usually notices that I'm drawing, but this chick next to me was boring holes into me the entire time I worked on this dude. I just used chick and dude in the same sentence. I really talk like this, don't I?

Wondertwin powers: ACTIVATE!

Jro and I combined our superpowers last week to make some fun things for our friends' bambina, who is due to arrive a few weeks from now.

She crocheted and sewed up the cute clothing and accessories and I designed the art to put on the t-shirts. Can't wait to see them on the wee babe!
