day 8!!! (25% percent through...)

i couldn't justify uploading just one of these, seeing as though they are all sketches and half-baked ideas. i've been enjoying making these little compositons on black.

okay! so... i was just looking at the date on my last post.. july. man. can't believe its been that long.

colored pencil all the way.
also i made some slight tweaks to the layout of this here blog. spiffs it up a bit i think.

3/15/09

mixed up media


more experimentation with different materials. no pencil underdrawing or erasing on these pages.

i found drawing this way to be totally liberating and fun.
and there's definitely more energy in these than usual.

i now know where my leadholder pencil is, but im going to see how long i can go without it.
