Day Four-Hundred and Eighty-Three

I took a picture of me from above. It was an odd angle, tough to draw, but I think I did a decent enough job.


Day Four-Hundred and Eighty-Two

Pen caps are happy, right?


Day Four-Hundred and Eighty-One

Why not. Really, go start a fire.


Day Four-Hundred and Eighty

I took this random picture of my head that perfectly cut off the front of my face, looked good, so I drew it.


Day Four-Hundred and Seventy-Nine

I never filled in the details for this one. Looks good without them though. This is the type of drawing I would never happily be able to scan in with my old scanner. New scanner, awesome.


Day Four-Hundred and Seventy-Eight

The Bells is one of my favorite Smashing Pumpkins songs. It was a b-side (back when bands had b-sides) and is just that perfect balance of a slow haunting piano song.


Day Four-Hundred and Seventy-Seven

I like drawing my own hand. There’s a lot more detail in a palm than one would imagine.


Day Four-Hundred and Seventy-Six

This is a drawing I did with no picture or model. Came out pretty good. I’m also gearing up for excitement, Wussy is playing out here in February.


Day Four-Hundred and Seventy-Five

After that image of a shaded circle in my last drawing I wanted to draw this one. It came out pretty good as well.


Day Four-Hundred and Seventy-Four

I had this image of a finger with different things at each tip. And drew up a hand with a few fingers up and a few down. This is another image that took me five minutes or less.


Day Four-Hundred and Seventy-Three

Judy Staring at the Sun is a great song by the Catherine Wheel. I found this picture of a girl leaning against a tree. I drew this in a few minutes, and it came out fantastic.


Day Four-Hundred and Seventy-Two

Sometimes my self portraits come out all wrong, but in a good way. Someone today asked me if I new all about facial symmetry. I told them no, that I didn't really care. For the same reason I never really cared to take and art classes. I like my style, I like evolving on my own. I like how I draw. I like that its mine. Maybe I could be a better artist with some actual instruction, but screw that. I'd rather just be.


Day Four-Hundred and Seventy-One

Sometimes song stick with you long after you stop listening to them. Sometimes it the lyrics. Don't Leave Just Now is one of those songs. Wussy has fantastic lyrics anyways, but this song stands head and shoulders above most of them.


Day Four-Hundred and Seventy

Another quote from Bodies that I was listening to yesterday. Still stuck in my head.


Day Four-Hundred and Sixty-Nine

As I was driving today my iPod was on shuffle. It came to the song Bodies by the Smashing Pumpkins. Such a fantastic song, catchy, and stuck in my head. So I drew to it.


Day Four-Hundred and Sixty-Eight

I am looking forward to February, Wussy comes back to Cleveland for a show. As much as I’ve listened to them over the last year, I still can find no fault with their album. Its perfect. And I can’t wait to see them in concert again.


Day Four-Hundred and Sixty-Seven

So I had no idea what to draw today, and all I listened to was some Bjork. It was the song Army of Me off of the Tank Girl soundtrack (great freaking soundtrack). So this is how it went.


Day Four-Hundred and Sixty-Six

I’ve drawn my hand in this pose more than once, it is hard to hold my hand like this as I draw, but it always come out well I think.


Day Four-Hundred and Sixty-Five

I think it is time to try some more realistic drawing again. So why not start with the eye and nose.


Day Four-Hundred and Sixty-Four

Its a guy looking in the air, for someone, when he knows she isn't there. He's alone, but can't help seeing her everywhere. Seeing things that remind him of her, make him think of her. He wonders if the same is her for him.


Day Four-Hundred and Sixty-Three

I imagined someone tossing and turning in bed (which to my credit, I did all night after drawing this in the afternoon). Just a guy, not comfortable, trying to sleep.


Day Four-Hundred and Sixty-Two

Sometimes I feel like this. Today though its from listening to the song Delicious, by the Catherine Wheel. Its a fantastic song.


Day Four-Hundred and Sixty-One

I really like this new scanner. This drawing came out great.


Day Four-Hundred and Sixty

I'm trying to get back to drawings realisticly again. So I drew my thumb, and added a few stick people. Looks good.


Day Four-Hundred and Fifty-Nine

I still remember watching the Da Funk video in our dorm room, and absolutely loving both the music and the video. I believe Sean first introduced us to Daft Punk. Its was good. No, it was great. Uplifting irresistible music. Fantastic.


Day Four-Hundred and Fifty-Eight

Its true.


Day Four-Hundred and Fifty-Seven

I had this idea of looking down at a guy running with his arms behind him. In the middle the idea changed, and this is the result.


Day Four-Hundred and Fifty-Six

I had about a month of drawing nothing but little stick figure drawings, and I've decided its time to draw some more realistic things. Back to faces and bodies and working on lips this year. This one, the eyes look way off. They look like this person is looking two different directions. But over all, the porportions are right. The eyes are wide, but its what I wanted.


Day Four-Hundred and Fifty-Five

Just a small doodle. I likes it. I was a little blank as far as ideas, but came out well.


Day Four-Hundred and Fifty-Four

I was listening to Death Cab for Cutie. While the song The New Year is not that optimistic, it is a song I associate with New Year's eve. Anyways, this is my drawing today.


Day Four-Hundred and Fifty-Three

I just used my new scanner to scan this in, it picks up much more detail than my old scanner. Christmas was good to me I suppose.
