Shut up and sketch!

November 13, 2013

I’ve been so busy with GI Joe work lately, that I haven’t had time to do what I keep telling other aspiring artists to do… sketch. For the past few weeks I’ve felt like my figure work has started to get a little formulaic, so to give my work a much needed shot in the arm, I forced myself to go to a session last night to dust off the artistic cobwebs. Too many metaphors? Anyway— the model was decent, although she was a bit fidgety and apparently tired, as she kept yawning, but that’s part of the process so you go with it. One thing I haven’t missed from sessions are people like the guy behind me that, aside from milking the remnants of his 45 year old english accent in a pathetic attempt to woo the young attendant of the gallery, would not stop tapping his foot along with the radio playing, or stop belting out the few lines of the one Eric Clapton song he knew. Despite all that, it was fairly enjoyable, so here you go.

And I’d also like to give my condolences to the family of Nick Cardy (1920-2013) who recently passed away. I never got to speak with the man, but he always seemed good natured at the comic cons we were both at. Most famous for his work on Aquaman, he showed a skill, and a range of styles, that are the envy of myself and anyone who saw it. Rest well.
