Some quick poses from life drawing at work.


Urban sketching

I have found doing quick black and white acrylic sketches is great. Very often I want to paint something but if I’m hanging out with people, I don’t want them to have to wait for hours. I think this is a great compromise,takes very little time and makes good opportunities for study. Also, it goes WAY faster than doing the shading with pencil as I was doing it before. I still prefer oil for its “buttery” quality, but this does the trick in terms of practicality, and I’ve started to really enjoy some dry brush effects.


Fox theater

A quick sketch of the Fox theater in Redwood city. The coolest Fox theater is in Oakland though, will get to that one as well! -Pencil and digital

San Francisco is full of people who have completely lost their minds.


Searle in America

StreetchessHD

My contribution to the “Searle in America” fundraiser auction. Proceeds financed the Ronald Searle exhibition in San Francisco. I chose to represent the crazy street chess players of market street.

Check out some of the work of other amazing contributors HERE.

Vernacular study

BackDress_LD

Study of an anonymous 1930s vernacular photo. It was perfect for studying values, interesting “clamped”, photographic values. I love vernacular photography, there is so much authenticity in them.


Cherry blossom festival

Anual cherry blossom festival in Japantown!

Remorse

whatdidyoudo

I saw this guy in a bar and felt compelled to nail him on paper. I was so intrigued by him, it looked like he had just done something terrible.

Au vieux Chatelêt

BarChatelet

I really miss Paris. It’s been a while since I moved but I still have great memories of sketching with friends over there. This is an old café in the Place de Chatelêt. After drooling over Daumier’s work for so long, I started taking some liberties, pushing and pulling things in and out of the light for staging purposes.

Fosik exhibition

Last year there was a sculpture exhibition by A.J. Fosik in town. The flat geometric shapes were really fun to draw, but this doesn’t do justice to the scultpures at all. Google him and be blown away.

I really enjoy sketching in San Francisco. the city has great character, super eclectic! I still don’t fully understand it, things are so random!
