I just got back from my artist’s residency in Oaxaca, Mexico, which is why there’s been such a gap in my posts. More on that later. For now, here’s a quick little fox drawing I did for ANE Whole Terrain.

Smithsonian Drawings

June 26th, 2012

This weekend I had the opportunity to go to the DC Zoo and the Smithsonian Natural History Museum. Both are fantastic and you should go if you get the chance. While I was there pretending to be 12 again I got to draw some of the skulls and skeletons on display at the museum. It’s one of my favorite things to do. I also took about 200 hundred pictures of animals (both alive and stuffed!) Here’s a sample of some of the sketches. More to follow I’m sure!

I took a trip to Boston

July 27th, 2009

This weekend, I took a 10 hour overnight train ride from Baltimore to Boston, and then back again. It was complete with drunk soccer fans from the one Chelsea game ever to occur in the US, screaming children, and a dining car that closed before 10. Needless the say the actual travelling was not a good time.

Once I got there, however, I got to see my best friend from my childhood get married, go to my college room mate’s graduation party, and see my parents for the first time in 6 months. So, all in all, I think it was worth the 20 hours of agony.

On the trip back, in between working on freelance projects and catching up on back issues of Scientific American from my dad, I managed to do this little sketch of myself from the reflection in the window. Looking forward to doing it all again in a few weeks…

Dr. Sketchy’s Sexy Ladies

March 15th, 2009

Just thought I would post some sketches from a semi-recent visit to Dr. Sketchy’s Anti- Art School open drawing. It’s held at Dionysus in downtown Baltimore. I think they usually get some ladies from a local cabaret show to come and pose for people. It’s a nice relaxed drawing session where eating and, more importantly, drinking are allowed and encouraged. I had forgotten how much I enjoy figure drawing, especially in a relaxed setting like this. Here are some of my best drawings from the most recent session I went to.
