Return to the ID Room…where it all began…

It’s always so nice to step into the old studio where you:  spent days and nights sketching and cad’d it up in, drowned yourselves in rockstar drinks, almost OD and die on redline, crashed out on the couch or table and woke with magoo all up in your face, got yelled at for bringing foam into, glued gi joes to the ceiling, discovered goatse and tubgirl (do not ask), puked all over the tables after a rough night of drinking, etc….

….Dom and I broke back into the room where it all started for us this past weekend (the old ID Studio @ SJSU) and were so happy to see sketches on the walls, messy tables, new couches (thank god), and the biggest time waster-the dart board…

Here are a few of the sketches on the walls…you guys make us so proud and keep on sketching…and thanks ID Room for all the memories!!!

Smokin!

Been really inspired by Brian Viveros lately, I definitely want to own some of his art one of these days! Took about 5 underlays to get this one right, its still to heavy in line work, but the body pose feels right. Done on trace paper with razor point, chartpack and a bit of prisma.

Dynamic Figures

Hey Guys,

I’ve been super inspired by Spencer Nugent’s Sketch-A-Day and I’ve taken it upon myself to do the same thing! So here is the first one I copied some stuff from Burne Hogarths Book “Dynamic Figure Drawing” Used a pilot razor point 2 on trace.

bart and conference scribbles

Took Bart yesterday (thankfully no strike went down) and sketched on the way to a conference/event by PeclersParis for trend/design/cultural stuff…here are some scribbles from the Bart ride and at the event…i like scribbling on the ride since it gets rough and forces you lose control and is unpredicatable as people are coming and going, sleeping and moving…good exercises…

taking bart to the battle of the bay

Last week,  Dom and I went to the Battle of the Bay, A’s vs Giants…and as luck turned out its the 20th Anniversary of the Earthquake Series.

Being Eighties Kids, with Dom a Giants fan and myself an A’s fan…we had a blast, recalling  memories of 80’s baseball in the Bay and growing up on opposing ends.

I also took Bart this time to the game…it had been awhile,  so of course i got overwhelmed with all the people and had to draw them all, and when i got to the coliseum i went insane…i love how diverse and beautiful the people of the Bay are, just so many faces and stories to tell…here are some that i caught…

A’s win! take that Dom…oh yeah, the Giants did take this series in the end last week…

SF Zoo Sketch Crawl- Review

We wanted to share with everyone the wonderful work that everyone that came out on June 14 @ the SF Zoo.   Sketching animals that are moving around, at a pretty good distance can be quite a challenge…but so many people did such fantastic work! Also, check out the photos that our 2 wonderful photographers shot all throughout the day!  Thanks again all, and please share it with every person on this big happy planet you know!

Oh, before I forget….would anyone be interested in getting this work in a MINI BOOK form?

Who didnt get a copy of our first SKETCH BOOK?  Hit us up, we will hook you up with one!  They turned out awesome Jon!
