I get über 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. (photo courtesy of Jro)
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".
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!
