Moist Sketchbooks

A couple quick watercolors from my scetchbook.

First up is the Amazon princess...

Next comes Captain Marvel...

And last, but certainly not least, the king of Coropolis.

2nd year student for the first time in four years.

That's right, I've just finished the first week in my last (hopefully) year of post secondary education (why is it called post secondary education? I don't think anybody calls high school secondary school, so they?). After this year I'll be entering the work force which is supper scary, mostly just because I have no idea where I'll end up, geographically speaking. I'm actually pretty excited about it though, I really want to get out there and start doing stuff.

Anyway, it's been forever (3-4 months) since I posted anything so I thought you might want to see a couple new drawings. This is Pumpkin and May from a book I've been reading called May Bird and the Ever After. It's written by Jodi Lynn Anderson and is part one in a series. I'm really diggin' its Beatlejuicesque feel.

Pretty much the only thing I drew this summer.

Evolution....very slow and painfull.

I've got a long ways to go.

p.s. it's Superman and Audrey Hepburn, not Lois.

FACE! (this has nothing to do with music)

Another half decent head sketch I did for that project a couple weeks ago.

I finally finished my layout project. I'm pleased with how it turned out.

"When the gates open Me, Poe and Me rush in, you got that?"

Some non-representational paintings that I did last year. They are acrylic on canvas, and I've learned that canvas doesn't scan particularly well.

"I don't even want to take a wiz on this thing. I used to dream about taking a wiz on this thing!"

some life drawings of myself through a mirror.

they're just sketches, some relatively quick studies, probably no more then 20 minutes each.

the one above has giant eyes. watch out or they'll consume your soul!

and now for the one from last year
one year's difference. quite an improvement I think, but let me know what you think.

Bonzai about Bonsai!

Hello people. so I got a Bonsai Tree today. Hooray! His name is not Gregory, but until I remember the actual name I chose that will do. I think it's a pine.

the Box said that he was already two years old. craziness!

when I first got him he was in one of those little containers that you usually get plants in but I transplanted him to his current home. I hope he takes root properly. his original soil was very dry and I'm a little worried that he might not take. only time will tell though I guess.

I'm very new to Bonsai training, and gardening in general so if anybody who reads has any hints, or links to helpful sites it'd be great.
