Go Bruins – Go Mike!

Monday, October 31st, 2005

If you missed the UCLA-Stanford game Saturday you missed another incredible white-knuckler. Note to Bruins: yes, we like drama, but waiting until last 9 minutes of the fourth quarter to score 21 points and tie it up at 24-24 is just a little too much excitement for the likes of me. (The score was Stanford [...]

I need more RAM

Saturday, October 22nd, 2005

I need more RAM Not the computer kind. Not Random Access memory. That kind of RAM I’ve got plenty of. I need this kind. The kind with hooves and horns. The kind you catch a glimpse of on a mountainside. I need more days outside before the chill of winter comes. More trips to the [...]

Encountering the Inner Aphrodite

Tuesday, October 18th, 2005

After posting my contour drawing of Perseus a few days ago, an art buddy wrote me a very nice note and suggested that maybe sometime in the future I could draw something a little less scary, like Aphrodite, for example. So here it is, based on the statue of Venus de Milo. Again, this was [...]

First mums

Monday, October 17th, 2005

We’ll go back to drawings tomorrow. In the meantime, I am reveling in the blooming of the first of my chrysanthemums. I took these pictures yesterday after a a bit of light rain. Today, unfortunately, we had a cloudburst and most of the blooms are looking rather bedraggled. I think I have about 30 different [...]

Conquering the Inner Gorgon

Saturday, October 15th, 2005

I’ve been doing a lot of blind contour drawings, prompted mainly by the wonderful group activity instigated by Niff and Sutter over at Inkfinger … and that led naturally to doing some contour drawings with eyes wide open – looking at both the picture and the paper. This one was done in 2-3 minutes in [...]

More drawings from the Simpsons Scoring Session

Thursday, October 13th, 2005

The contrabassoon player. I really liked your Hawaiian shirt. I’m not sure that it had palm fronds and hibiscus but I think most of them do, so I hope you won’t mind that I took liberties with your attire. A trumpet player, sitting fairly far from me. I’m sorry it doesn’t look like you. About [...]

LOST – Illo Friday

Wednesday, October 12th, 2005

I had been thinking about the quake in Pakistan and made an attempt to suggest the size and scale of the recovery process with this experimental imaginary sketch painted in Photoshop. So I just finished posting it here and turned my thoughts to Illustration Friday. I was wondering what to do on the theme of [...]

Drawing at the Simpsons’ Scoring Session

Monday, October 10th, 2005

Yesterday we had the opportunity to be guests at the orchestral scoring session for the annual Simpsons’ “Treehouse of Horror” Halloween show with composer Alf Clausen, orchestrator Dell Hake and a roomful of tremendously gifted performers. We stayed for the entire morning session and loved every eerie, spine-tingling, rip-roaring moment. We were in the booth [...]

Illo Friday – Float

Wednesday, October 5th, 2005

Sometimes life takes mysterious twists and turns and it’s a challenge just to stay afloat. But what a ride.
