The Apparition of These Faces in the Crowd…

By in men, sketches, women

…Petals on a wet, black bough. Face sketches I’ve been doing, on the Metro, and at parties. Sometimes from TV!

Not posting much, I’m afraid. But I’m getting into drawing while I’m waiting for the metro, as these sketches suggest. The first one, done a while ago, I don’t think I put up: The second one was just yesterday, after returning home from an event. What great worn out and diverse faces you can find […]

Fun With a Pencil

By in men, sketches, women

Pencil drawings, coloured and otherwise. The title of the post is the title of one of those great old Andy Loomis art technique books. But one I don’t have.

By in men, sketches

This is a pencil drawing in my big book. I was too lazy scan it, and stitch it together, so I snapped it instead. Now I feel to lazy to write anything about it. It’s kind of self-explanatory. All my drawings of women at the moment are going to my burlesque project. But I felt […]

By in cats, men, sketches, women

Bought these pencils at a new art store I saw, that had opened up on Laurier Street near Papineau. There used to be a framing shop which had a smattering of art supplies. Now, I guess they thought they’d move out and expand the art supplies. This is welcome, because there’s a dearth of independent […]

Out the Other Day…

By in sketches, watercolour, women

…in old Montreal. Sketched this reader: a very proper older lady, hair slightly blown by the wind. A hoard of daycare kids thundered by several times in a running exercise, and she never looked up, or moved at all. Below, it’s the terra-cotta pencil. I’m getting more interested in backgrounds to these kinds of things. […]

Drew some nuns this morning, after watching Doubt. Pretty cool film. I liked the backgrounds, which I could have sworn were Montreal, but were carefully shot in the Bronx, New York. The bonnets are a little fantastical.

This Always Happens…

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

I’ve been in a bit of a mood lately, and not posting much. But still drawing things. Some of which are clever, or all right. I’ve actually got 3 comic strips on the go, which I’d like to finish. Those, of course, are all brilliant. We’ll see. In the meantime, because Easter weekend was warm, […]

Cat Violence

By in cats, ruttan's place, sketches

Cats are slime. Little cat this morning woke me up by knocking over books and a fan, as above. I’m sure she thought she was awesome. Below is a rendering of cat violence at its worst, chez Ruttan. The large cat, Mr. Boggedy, thwacks with his eyes closed, which is a little ineffectual. But he’s […]
