Post Apocalyptic Pirelli Calendar

Hello folks, felt like sketching today.
This sketch originated from the "EDs" series. I was thinking about sketching them but something better happened. One of those happy accidents.
I liked this sketch. So much so that I'll be painting it digitally (this time is for real).
Yay for nonsense!!!
Thanks for looking.

Figure Drawing Class

Hello folks, the images shown in this post are from my figure drawing class.
The first one is a 3 minute sketch done with ink wash on Bristol paper.
The second one shows some theory and quick tips I gave to the students in class. Chalk on Chalkboard.
It's kinda hard to draw on chalkboard, it's hard to keep the correct proportions.
Thanks for stopping by.

Early XMas Sketch and Tv Sketches

Hello folks, how are you doing?
I watched some DVDs this weekend and decided to sketch a little. For those who follow the show - yes, the sketches on the left page are from Comedy Central's "RENO911". I just bought the 5th season. Funny stuff, man. Funny stuff.
On the right side, there's a XMAS sketch (I know it's a bit early for that). Maybe I'll paint it digitally and send out as a XMAS Card.
Thanks for stopping by and for putting up with all the nonsense.

Ed - Woodcut version

Hello folks, this was my first attempt with woodcut printing. It's kinda hard to work with the tools, it takes a bit getting used to.
I know I'm gonna have to practice a whole lot! It was fun, though.
Hope you'll enjoy it.
Thanks for stopping by.

Quick Acrylics study - Kevin's Plush toys

Hello folks, this is a quick study done yesterday night, while watching Tv. I used acrylics and some pastels.
The objects' colors and composition caught my eye, I tried to set aside my will to detail it, focusing my attention on capturing the mood and emphasizing the colors.
It was done fast - impulsive and fun. Hope you enjoy it.
I also posted this sketch at another blog called "Desenhos de Observação". Feel free to check it out, there's a lot of good artists posting their artwork there.
Thanks for stopping by.

And.. of course... (sigh) Ed.
Thanks for stopping by.

Some Nonsense

Hello everyone.
Say hi to my little friends, Ed, Ned, Ted and Fred. I tried to set my mind on "empty" and that's what happened.
It's not supposed to have any meaning. Just some doodles.
Done this morning while teaching.
Thanks for stopping by.

In the meantime I hope you enjoy the studies.
Thanks for stopping by.

Hello folks, it's been a while...
These sketches are either from Tv or photographs. I tried to exaggerate the features and shapes a bit.
Thanks for looking.
