I'm trying to draw more and be less inhibited while doing so, and trying to get more people drawing.
I've been traveling occasionally down to the LA area for work recently and met some truly cool individuals. I was actually able to encourage (i.e. hound) one to come out to do a little public drawing. It was hard not to be distracted by the chess club that had taken over the coffee shop.
I drew the lid sort of blind contour style, at least the outline, then filled in some of the details a bit. Quick and fun with a red micron (I've only ever drawn in black - I'm so uptight).

I haven't drawn much in a while - laid off, ruptured achilles, new job, etc. Well, no more excuses. In trying to rally others to draw and explaining how little time it takes (just 5 minutes a day) I realized what a hypocrite I was being. So here's something new.
We took my mom out for dinner for her birthday. I liked the shiny green olive oil bottle, especially the crazy distorted view from the top. I tried to exaggerate that a bit, but it didn't really work out that great. I still like how the drawing turned out though.

I was finally inspired to draw, its been a while. Here's my birthday/christmas gift from my family - DJ Hero. Its the coolest....seriously.
Shout out to A-dizzle Wizzle for letting me pretend to be a DJ behind real turntables (which is way harder than DJ hero) - in the real LBC (home of Snoop Dog, you KNOW) no less.

Well, I haven't really done anything creative for a while. It's been even longer since I have posted something. But I was finally inspired to sit down today and carve a few new stamps. Some were experiments.
The gears were inspired by the work at Comfortable Shoes Studio one of which was created using a gear-shaped mask.
I like the idea of stamps that can be used to create repeating patterns or overlapped for cool effects.
The last one I've been wanting to do for a while - a Wii remote to go with the classic Atari 2600 joystick I created a while back.
