Sometimes Busy Weeks Are Good.
Okay, I haven't been ignoring this blog and I definitely haven't taken a break from work. It's good to be busy right now and I have been. Hopefully in a couple of weeks I will be able to give some details about the project I've been working on.
In the meantime I have completed 3 illustrations, two spots for a magazine and a book cover. With the kids getting ready to go back to school those jobs came in at a good time.
Of course there is always the ongoing commitment to paint or draw everyday. On the top left is a drawing I did on the subway. The man was standing a bit of a distance from me and he definitely saw me drawing him. That made him a bit nervous I guess so I did my best to draw him quickly.
When I got back home I used the sketch to create the colored drawing at left in Sketchbook Pro 6. Taking the sketches I made outdoors and working them up at home is fun to do and is good practice.
I also created a video that I posted on YouTube. The video is embedded below. I also include another video underneath that one. A time lapse video of a painting completed in Sketchbook Pro 6 and related to the project I alluded to earlier. I will let out more details about the project in the coming weeks, but hopefully this will look interesting enough to make you curious.
