Aug 10, 2009


Two things in varying stages of progress. The top one was just a sketch I messed around with for far too long. It's not going any further. The bottom one is a piece for a book, but I'm not entirely happy with how it's going, so I'm starting over.

I like how the coloring was coming along, but it started to overpower the drawing -- or rather, the coloring was much better than the drawing, so I have to step that up before I continue. I just sort of feel like I'm going through the motions, especially in these two pieces. I think I need to be spending simultaneously more and LESS time working. More time thinking about what and how I'm drawing and a little less time trying to get the drawings exactly right. There's a looseness and an energy that's absent from the drawings here. I am trying to remedy that.


I forgot that I never posted this. Something that I started towards the end of last semester but never ended up finishing it for whatever reason. Based on High Fidelity by Nick Hornby. Sigh. Another thing I will never finish.
