A doodle at one in the A.M.

Cafe and ROM

Drawings from the last couple of days.






Not the greatest drawings but I don't normally try and study light and shadow.




Love Drawing Dino bones, my favorite thing to do when I am at the ROM. I did a ton of drawings like this over the summer.



cafe drawings at the Eaton Center








cool dude in the subway playing some weird instrument I've never seen before. But very pleasant sounding

done in toon boom. Not my design, I'm finally understanding how to use toon boom, it took me about 4 hours to do this, with little effort, i know it's not that great, it's a big improvment, animation wise, compared to this ---> http://thirdmoon.deviantart.com/art/lucha-with-an-orange-72287613 , i actually tired on that one, no joke. Anyway, more animation to come

Jimbo

Caricature of Jim Graves, Character Design teacher at seneca.



I life draw?

I think this is the first time I have ever posted my life drawings online. I really enjoy life drawing. I'm really lucky that I can do it 5 days a week, for really cheap. I always like to try something different with my drawing, (although looking at these I think I need to experiment and push things even more) but i always try to draw for myself.

I think next time I go to life drawing I'm going to have way more fun.....




Tania, i think that's her name, great model










Uni brow lady, don't know her real name, and she doesn't really have
an uni brow, but she has great posses too





I don't have to many quick poses, i always get to life drawing late


Beefy shoulder guy













Illy lookin frustrated


45 min, longest pose I've done in a while, spent most of the time try to get it lookin correct, and lost track of the time, oh well


every one kept saying she looked like a dead hooker or something

digital WIP

Not the usually thing i do, first it's kinda realistic, still a bit caricatured, it's all digital, and I'm trying for a more realistic rendering. Since i don't normally do this it's not exactly all that great, but whatever. I think the important thing is I'm trying to do something different, working out of my comfort zone. I really want to push myself as an artist.

Royal Winter Fair

Just stuff from the royal winter fair, I always have a blast when I go, next year I have to go more than just one day












So me and 6 other fellow caricature artist went down to North Carolina, Raleigh, to attend the NCN Caricature convention, although in my opinion the word convention doesn't really describe the event all that well, There weren't many people selling anything, other than Stephen Silver and Joe Bluhm,(who are the people you would want to by stuff from anyway) there was also an art store there. No media or anything like that that I saw, roaming about bothering people. No Fat, sweaty, smelly, (although after the 3rd day of everyone sitting, drawing day and night, in the same hall, there developed a funk, but it was a good funk, a "creative Funk") 30 year old men, who still lived in their parents home, spewing their appreciation to their favorite artist.

It was just 200 or so artists, sittin around drawing, laughing, drinking, i.e doing what they loved to do. For 5 days straight, 24 hour access to the hotels dining hall, and man was it ever sweet!!!! Such a creative high. just walking though out the dinner hall and looking at all the art that was being made was very inspiring, you would want to keep walking, but at the same time you would want to get back to your seat and drawing some more. there where many times though out the day when you would hear someone burst out laughing and you knew that somebody had just drawn something really awesome. Another thing that was really great about the "convention" was that some of my favorite artist where there, not only that, they where sitting there, drawing next to me. I definitely tried my hardest not to geek out when Stephen Silver came by and said hi, and commented on one of my drawings, (I'm pretty sure i came across as a fan boy anyway) I could go on about it more but I'll just show some of the drawing I got while I was there......

I am definitely going next year.
