Zombie Carnival

This year I managed to make the time to create an illustration for the Draw Sucka Draw Zombie exercise. This began as sketches in my moleskin sketchbook. The final image was created in illustrator. I plan to clean it up a bit and possibly add a few more details.

Spooky, One Off

Draw Sucka Draw is now doing One Offs to complement the Draw from a Hat exercises. This One Off theme is Spooky. This is a quick sketch - in keeping with the Draw from a Hat tradition. Drawn on a Molseskin with a Pentel Color Brush. You can see more Draw Sucka Draw activities here... http://www.drawsucka.com

PoGo in Tokyo, with toys

These images were taken in Tokyo Japan. The images on the left were taken in Kiddyland and on the right in Loft. These drawings were started on airplanes but were finished in Cat's Cradle during XXMerge. My favorite part is the small Tofu head creature in the lower left corner.

PoGo in Tokyo

The PoGos were taken in Tokyo Japan. Since I was drawing in airports and on planes I wasn't always in the mood. Most of this was plenty of fun but there were a number of times I opened the book and just stared at the page.

PoGo in Nikko Japan Part Two

These images are also of Nikko Japan. These were drawn over several days. The sketches on the left were done in NY and NJ while the sketches on the right were done in NC. The Tofu head creatures were the most fun. Allowing them to defy gravity and twist, climb, and sit in any direction made this more interesting than the previous pages.

PoGo in Nikko Japan

Images taken in Nikko Japan a few months ago. Nikko is a very reasonable train ride from Tokyo. If you want a place to relax... this is it. I skipped a few pages in the Moleskin to draw around images I was in the mood for at the time.

PoGo meets MOMA

PoGos created from the MOMA over New Years weekend. I get in free at the MOMA but I still purchase a membership each year.

I had a persistent headache when I drew these images and I think somehow that influenced the trippiness.

PoGo Moleskin continued

Mixing together a sketchbook and photos makes sketching in public easier. I can just draw small pieces at a time. It avoids for the most part the moments when you know the drawing you are working on just isn't working and you hope no one notices.

The game shown is Tigris and Euphrates.

Both this post and the previous post were drawn in airports and on airplanes. I am breaking the iphone video habit and trying to utilize the time better.

PoGo Madness

This is the first page of my PoGo Moleskin book. The PoGo is a (fantastically named) portable printer made by Polaroid. PoGO = Polaroid to Go. The printer is inkless... using (the brilliantly named) Zink technology. Zink = Zero Ink. The printer uses heat to create images on perfectly sized mini pages with sticker backing.

The game played is Tigris and Euphrates.
