April Sketches

I'm DYING to paint again! I've been color coordinating my heirloom tomatoes and mixing skin tone palettes in my mind when glancing at passing strangers. This evening a very purple man with penciled in orange eyebrows accompanied Justin and I in the elevator. What a tease! I am away from my paints this week so I've settled with graphite. Lately my favorite times to sketch: before bed; during movies- which I watch to brake from the freelance work.  Usually my sketches don't have much rhyme or reason, but most of these do. They were drawn Last night- in bed watching Tombstone.

I've been thinking about doing a personal series on aged children in school type portraits, or children with skin conditions of older age. I like the idea of the challenge in balancing youth with age.

This pore guy has got a bad case of enlarged pores.

This one came from another idea thats been floating around in my head for a year- Thunder Thighs. Female Godzilla- with cottage cheese texture and all. 

And these are just a product of caricature practice for my summer gig at the LA Zoo. The last ones got a little Tombstone 'flavah' to it.

My last sketch of the night. Sometimes I mindlessly google "cat" or "puppy" when I'm running out of steam.

Here's a couple more sketches from earlier this month that i didnt get around to posting: 

Listening to No Age. I don't really know what the singer looks like. Kinda came out like the Mad TV kid.

Watching Amadeus.
