Some stuff I found inside a Box

I was cleaning up my office and I found some interesting stuff.
These sketches are kinda old but I think they still deserve some exposure time.
They were not meant to be seen, actually. They're just disorganized studies. I turned the page around trying to fit more than one sketch in. So please, don't mind the composition.
So folks, it's out there! Some old, disorganized stuff.
Thanks for stopping by.

Sketching from Life (Standing up)

Hello folks!
Two sketches done today. The lines are a little shaky because I was standing up.
It's harder to sketch standing up than I thought.
There are some mistakes, some blotches of paint, some smeared ink but it was a fun exercise anyway.
Thanks for your patience and for stopping by.

The Dardos Award

I'm glad to announce that Sarah de Godoy, of KAIROS, has awarded a Premio Dardos (Dardos Award) to this Illustration blog.

"The Dardos Award is given for recognition of cultural, literary, and personal values transmitted in the form of creative and original writing. These stamps were created with the intention of promoting fraternization between bloggers, a way of showing affection and gratitude for work that adds value to the web."

What I had to do after taking a little time to feel good about myself was: to pass the award to another 15 blogs that (in my modest opinion) are "worthy of this acknowledgement".

Based on the definition of the award, after a lot of pondering, I chose the following blogs:

- KAIROS (right back at ya, Sarah)
- Avelino
- Lost Mauro
- Crumbim
- Afterthoughts
- Minuta
- All Alone in Watchtower
- Desenhos de Observação
- Edde Wagner
- Brucke Caribe
- Nevarez
- Sketcheria
- Weberson Santiago
- Today's Inspiration
- O Ornitorrinco Canastrão

For those whom I passed along the Award, congrats! And feel free to follow the directions below:

• First, accept the award by posting it on your blog along with the name of the person that has granted the award and link to her blog.
• Second pass the award to another 15 blogs that are worthy of this acknowledgment, remembering to contact each of them to let them know they have been selected for this award.

Thanks for stopping by, guys. That'll be all for this post.

Fashion Sketch

Hello folks!
As you all (probably) know, I teach Figure Drawing and Foundation Drawing for Fashion students. I started this sketch this afternoon while my students were busy with their drawing assignments.
I had fun doing it.
The colors were added digitally a few minutes ago.
It turned out nice so I decided to post it.
Hope you enjoy it.
Thanks for stopping by.
