New Art, and Tumblr

By in cats, men, sketches, watercolour, women

I’ve discovered tumblr, which at the moment is where I’m putting a lot of ranting and rambling I’d like to get out of my system. This is good, because it makes me feel more productive in general. No reason I can’t do that here, however. But we’ll see how it goes. I like keeping things […]

Trying to Keep it Together

By in dogs, sketches, women

A page of pen and brush drawings: I’ve set up a tumblr blog. Don’t know why I did that, but I want to make it a little less formal than this blog. Kind of like an expanded twitter. I’d better set things up so they all intersect!

Guitar Man

By in men, sketches

Not much to say today. Trying to do good and useful things. But it’s hot. Would rather be wandering around outdoors.

Hey, I’m Walking Here!

By in ruttan's place, sketches, women

Just having some fun on the computer with this lady I drew and coloured. Should do her reflection in the window!

Why A Fish?

By in sketches, watercolour, women

I don’t know. Fish are fun to paint. So shiny and silvery. Blues and greens work nicely. I’m drawing tons of female figures for a job. These are the ones that don’t quite fit the bill. Still fun. I get better at these things with every job, which is great. Next one should be drawing […]

Typing Paper

By in cats, dogs, men, sketches, watercolour, women

Don’t think I’ve completely mastered the scanner. Have to look at all the options. In the meantime, here’re a bunch of things I’ve been drawing on scrap paper, while drawing stuff for another job I can’t show you at the moment. Mainly front balcony things.

Enter Title Here

By in cats, men, sketches, watercolour, women

I could go on about things, but I think I’m just going to put these up, and leave it at that. Of course, I’ll probably end up making little comments here and there. Above is a gang of sketchbook people, and a happy “War of the Worlds” tripod. I love the old 1910’s version of […]

Some More Sketchbook Pages

By in cats, horses, men, sketches, watercolour, women

‘Cause of my getting a new scanner, I’ve scanned all these pages, which, up until now, were hidden in my sketchbook. Now they’re here, for all of you to enjoy! A couple of the characters here are taken from Barbara Bradley’s book Drawing People: How to portray the clothed figure. Will have to talk about […]

New Scanner Rocks the Black and White

By in men, sketches, women

I’m happy with my new scanner, especially the speed, and lack of power cords to tangle. There’s a lot of black and white stuff I’ve drawn that needs scanning, so here it is. Slovenly walking girls! Assorted dancers! Strange tall women! Guys in suits! I love them all!

Out of my Head…

By in men, sketches, women

I mean FROM my head, of course. More things drawn, because I’m mad about drawing. Women, of course, because the burlesque assignment continues (though that’s often just an excuse). It’s wet today, so no drawing from the balcony. I’m wondering if people think I’m strange, because I’m out there so often. Interested in odd body […]

Old Port

By in men, montreal, sketches, watercolour, women

I enjoyed doing these pictures of the Old Port, painting away while people on wheels and feet sailed past me. I’m the crazy hairy guy with the paint box, which is all right with me. Funny, though, how when you sit down, suddenly 400 school kids on lunch break sit in the same area you […]

Saint Denis and other places…

By in men, sketches, watercolour, women

…such as inside my head. I got out of the apartment around noon, and walked to rue Saint Denis, to sit in a coffee shop and draw passers-by. Unfortunately, the weather, while great for kite-flying, soon got a little sprinkly. So, I only managed the above sketch of a woman, bundled up. This guy below […]

More Burlesque Sketches

By in sketches, women

Though fitfully, I’m still doing drawings for Mlle. Oui Oui and the gang at Blue Light Burlesque. These are some more sketches, according to photos on flickr (I’m going to look these up and try to credit the photographers). Anyhow, I’m not making any money from them… Why has she got a surprised-looking guy half-transparent, […]
