Just messin' around in the ol' sketchbook. Here's a gouache painting of a random alien that I came up with. And yes he has no arms. I don't know how this species will last that long.

A "Basterd"

I've been hearing a lot of good things about Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds. Here's a quick sketch I did of Brad Pitt and a stylized version of that sketch. I think the sketch turned out better than the colored version but what can one do? Oh well, time to watch the movie!

A Late Night Painting

Here's a quick gouache painting before I go to bed. No one in particular, just a character I drew up.

Gouache Test

I like trying different mediums just because each one has there own different look. I've tried most of the wet mediums except for gouache. I've been inspired by many artists who have used gouache in there landscape studies that I wanted to try it out myself. I plan on taking my gouache kit out to do some landscape paintings but first I thought I'd try it out just so I know what to expect. Here's a quick study of a Toucan image that came with my computer.

Free Caricatures at Cannery Row 4.0

Me and my friends, Virgil and Rob returned to Cannery Row on Friday to do more caricatures. It was going to be our last time doing it there as we plan to do future caricaturing at a new place. It started off REALLY slow due to it being on the same day as a car show and the county fair. A few hours later things picked up pretty fast.

All the sessions we've had in Monterey have been a blast. The bar has been set for the next city. I can only hope that the people are as cool and nice as the people in Monterey.

Brazilian Fruits

Here's some stuff from the Berimbau Short Film that I'm working on with fellow school mates. I'm doing prop designs, particularly Brazilian Foods for the film. I have to do two versions, one rendered and one in cutout versions. Here's a sample of what I've been working on.

Walt Kowalski

After seeing Gran Torino in theaters I always wanted to do piece with Clint Eastwood as Walt. Here's a sketch of Clint Eastwood so far.

FREE Caricatures at Cannery Row 3.0

Third times the charm! I found myself working a little bit faster than the previous two sessions and I liked the results more this time around. Let me just say, it really does help when your model stays in one place. I really should have done that the last two times we've done this. Anyway, I was a little nervous coming in this time just because we didn't have the usual group of friends with us to help lessen the load for each artist and to get the sketches out faster. It was just my friend Virgil and me taking on the masses.

After I got the first couple drawings out of my system I started to get settled in. We were pretty much busy right from the start and never really had a break until we left. That was actually a good thing because it put us in a groove instead of taking breaks and then trying to get back into things.

Thanks to all who came out. Happy People. Interesting Stories. Good Times!
