Use the force…

Hello all,

Its literally been light years since our last post.   With the recent formation of a workshop/art studio, I now have some space to reconnect to the work I love.  Last night I was lucky enough to go to my brother Joey’s art show @ Backspace Retail in Sonora, Ca.  Seeing him create beautiful work and share it with friends, family, strangers off the street..gave me that feeling of reconnecting with the art roots inside me.  So naturally I went straight one of my greatest sources of inspiration…star wars and yoda! Check out the step by step process I took to create a few pieces that are now hanging up in the workshop!  Enjoy!

Draw Something!!!

We here at lineweights are addicted to the Draw Something App!

Its been so amazing watching an App that requires good communication and quick sketching skills take off like Draw Something has (what an inspiration! everyone around the world is drawing and props to OMGPOP for turning pictionary into a huge social gaming app)

Anyhow wanted to share some of our own Draw Something sketches (all on the iPhone version)…enjoy and hopefully u can guess what we are sketching!

Felix the Cat

Happy Birthday dad!  My dad sketched this really cute felix the cat that we used to have floating around the house when my brother and I were kids (ill have to try to find it).  I always loved this sketch, because MY DAD drew it and it looked so much like the real Felix!  He always sketched cute little characters like this and im positive that his influence (my moms too) is what lead my brother and I to art.  Felix is a totally under rated cartoon character and influenced other characters from the early days of animation till today!

I sketched these out as a present for my dad for his birthday!  Hope you like it dad!
