Well Karl was able to provide some pretty cool insight tonight about drawing from you head. Of course doing a ton of drawing from life will inform the things you draw from your head. That is a given. But he also said creating figures from your head will help you to understand what you don't know, which you can then bring to class and focus on. For me, I often struggle with the hips and the weight distribution in the legs. He said for that it helps to have a full  length mirror where you can assume the pose you are trying to draw, and really feel it when you are drawing it.

So off to buy a cheapo mirror this weekend. And in other news I've decided to start boycotting Blick. I think I can get my supplies cheaper elsewhere so why waste my hard earned dough. Plus I've enough paper stockpiled to last me a VERY long time so it doesn't make sense to buy expensive paper. I also think not having the dough to spend on what you would normally fall back on can jolt you out of your normal routine and force you to think how you can get the same or better results with less. Its a welcome challenge.

The brains of the operation

Even though Sly is the main character Anca is the brains of the operation and the character that forces Sly into a transformation and a final moral decision where he must choose between redemption or damnation.

Sidebar, I'm aiming to have the story tied down by memorial day.

Silvio's Smog Check

Here are some of Silvio's needy customers at his Smog Check Test and Repair shop. Harold the neighborhood drunk, a harried single father, and Angel the bootylicious babe.

The Junk Yard

Hey guys, so since part of my story takes place in a junk yard Yuji and I went down to the Pick a part in Monrovia yesterday and I snapped these reference photos. We found out later you're not supposed to take pics there, (luckily the guy did not see my camera) so enjoy..

A lot of it was really surreal. A surreal sun drenched graveyard for cars.

Friends! Great news! I was recently accepted to an Artist in Residency program and will be traveling to Alaska the last week in July. The National park rangers there have commissioned me to make a conservationist comic book, to be delivered after our 9 day kayaking and camping trip through the wilderness.

And below is a random drawing that has nothing to do with Alaska.
