Nothing Serious

Like most creative people, sometimes I struggle with artist’s block. Group assignments are a great way to fight this not so serious ailment. The following works took no longer than forty five minutes to create. They are in response to specific themes assigned daily by Reddit’s Sketch Daily Club.

Painting of my favorite word: Sparrow

Drawing of my favorite villain: Samara

They aren’t masterpieces, just fun little exercises. Sometimes, it’s nice to make art without serious intentions.

Sketchbook Splash

It’s Sketchbook Saturday and, as you can see, my sketchbook has gained a lot more color lately.

The following was doodled while watching Peter S. Beagle’s The Last Unicorn.

Steampunk Sketchy’s

It has been a while since I attended a Dr. Sketchy‘s Anti Art School in Philadelphia. And what an event it was today! The costumes were gorgeous at the steam punk themed Dr. Sketchy’s. Our lovely models were Lulu Lollipop and Ginger Leigh of the burlesque Peek-A-Boo Revue, with special guest posings by Count Scotchula.

Remember Sketchbook Saturday?

I never do.

Below is a drawing from my sketchbook made during a Hammonton Arts Center board meeting. My skecthbook and I are still inseperable. Unfortunately, Twitpic seems to see more of its contents than this blog does.

Sketchbook Caturday!

Here is a page of quick cat studies from my sketchbook. Ink on paper.

Sushi for Lunch

This was drawn  at a local Japenese restaurant. I ate the sushi-for-one, option C.

Everybody now!

Join in sketchbook Saturday!

For over a year, I have been posting a drawing from my sketchbook almost every Saturday. This habit helps motivate me to keep a sketchbook. It also encourages understanding of the fact that not every drawing needs to be a masterpiece. I’ve found, as an artist, sometimes there is more of myself in a quick scribble than in a completed painting.

My goal this year is to involve more people in Sketchbook Saturday. If you should decide to participate, please link to your sketch in the comment section below. If you have a Twitter account, label your weekly sketch as #sketchbooksaturday. I will look at everyone’s sketches and retweet a few a week. It is an ambitious New Years resolution, but one I plan to try. Lets make 2010 more artistic than any year before it!

Maybe this will catch on, maybe it won’t. I plan on keeping up the habit either way. It has improved my art and my enjoyment of life.

Today’s sketch is “Parts of a Party”. Ink on paper.

Snowed In

This week, I have no excuse not to participate in Sketchbook Saturday. The snow has trapped me in my home.

Here is a drawing of an old sneaker overlapping the box for Left 4 Dead 2. It is drawn with ball point pen on Stonehenge paper in my lovely Parkside Harmony sketchbook.

Happy Saturday

Here is a sketch.

Red pen. Black pen. A view into my bedroom.
