I’m trying to wind myself up for a new project. It involves lots of spacesuits, robots, and ruined, industrial sci-fi settings. Really, everything I love in life… imaginary life.
One of the most-difficult ongoing struggles I face is finding enough time to draw. The last year has been so busy, I’m thinking about not taking on more freelance commissions for the near future, at least until I’ve finished drawing a few things that have been waiting for a while now and are pounding at the door on my conscience.
Enough of that, you came here for the drawing, right? So, here’s a little sketch I cleaned up to get the juices flowing. It’s going to be on the table for that upcoming project. More on that soon…
I’m sick. I hate being sick.
It’s nice to get a day off of work, but it sucks to not being able to do much with it. I have a comfy bed, though, and lots of books that need reading. So, I should be alright.
Drawing is not something I do well when I don’t feel well, but blogging doesn’t require much energy and I do have a little drawing from this weekend that I thought worth sharing.
This is for a friend who broke her arm recently. It’s based off a mascot that she cares a lot about, and I thought she might like a little cyber-zombie treatment to make the bull a little more interesting. I don’t think I can transfer this to a cast (on the arm), but it might make for some good nightmare-fuel while healing.
Living in San Francisco meant I was one of thousands of artists roaming the city, often subtly (or not at all) drawing their fellow citizens, especially on the BART. It’s a little bit harder to sneak in a drawing of someone sitting nearby in Oklahoma City. People tend to notice and get weirded out much faster here. I guess artists aren’t quite as accepted here as they are on the West Coast…
Anyway, this guy was actually dressed quite nicely for work when I made him a quick-study subject at lunch this week. I added the spacesuit because… well, because spacesuits are more-interesting than collared shirts.
It was a New Years goal of mine to draw more and post often. Life has a funny way of getting in the way of even the most honest intentions, though. Things change, circumstances are not always what they appeared to be at first, and new opportunities come about. So… let’s try it again. Here I am, promising myself more work forthcoming.
Here’s a cute little spacesuit to keep one from dying horribly in strange places.
