          Never forget the importance of drawing from real life.  That is as much a reminder to you as it is to myself.  There will never be a point when I am "done" drawing things in a sketchbook while I watch them happen.  So, here's two cute ladies that caught my eye.

          This was off of a 50's style metal advertising sign for Camel cigarettes.  So I guess it's not from LIFE life, but I wanted to sketch it anyway.

         I saw this girl working at the coffee shop on the corner.  Such an adorable outfit and a bright attitude for someone in the middle of a shift, I had to take note.

Brushpen 3000

          Just got a new brushpen and started testing it out during one of my sci-fi nights.  This is what came out.  I know it isn't perfectly accurate but...

Sketch Punks

          So today I started sketching to try to figure out some designs for a business card illustration, and it just evolved into ohmygosh, mohawks are great.  Well, now I know what subject matter I'm going to do, I just have to come up with some good compositions.  Here's the page of rough ideas I came up with.

          Hello followers!  I adore you all for sticking around, despite my absence.  I promise I did not forget you.  In the in-between time from my last post, I have graduated from SCAD and moved to San Francisco!  Exciting stuff. Within the move though, I have lost my digital camera (booooooo.)  Soon I will have another, and updates will continue as usual, including the thrilling conclusion to my Life Drawing series.
          I have been doing a lot of non-art related work recently, mostly trying to beef up my resume for some new applications.  If you are a fellow artist, I suggest you do the same, right now, don't wait.  It can be an annoying process, but it's important to be able to look professional as well as produce art.  In that vein, I've created a brandyourself profile, check it out here.  I've only just started using it, but it seems like a useful tool to bump up the amount of people who will find you through search results.  Thank you, internet!
