Sketches

2 sketches from down time at work. Also I took the sketches and photographed them with my phone and used a photo editor to mess with them, leaving me with the last 2 black and white ones.

Drawing at the Mall

While studying figure drawing my instructor would have us go to the nearby mall and draw people. Each time we had a challenge to draw people at the food court, draw people walking, draw people on the first floor (fore shortening was the toughest), draw people on the escalators, etc. This is one of the best ways to practice and get some pencil mileage and study figure drawing.

Oh dear, how the time flies…

I remembered one important point of websites, especially blogs, and that is to always keep the content fresh. I’d like to say that my lack of fresh material was due to my busy time as a designer but alas, being unemployed and looking for work can lead to many distractions. I did finally planned and went on the vacation that I needed to open my eyes and learn more about places other than California and indeed I have. I spent a week in Texas near Dallas catching up with an old middle school friend and an old high school friend who have been making a pretty decent living there for the past decade. My experience has concluded that home is where I can make the best living for myself. I’ve been couped up in California for so long I was blind to give other places a chance. I am now back on the job hunt, stronger than ever, never holding myself back. I remind myself that I am never bound by a place or by people and that I can embrace other places fitting to my living needs and goals.

yes, the real world can be very demanding of people’s time and alas am left with only the time it takes to boot my laptop at work to¬†indulge in my pen-to-paper craft.
