Sometimes I like to just play with the brushes and markers in photoshop and see where it takes me. No real goal here except to get some ideas out of head and onto paper. Which can really be a challenge considering all the different thoughts floating around in head at any given moment.
My job is military oriented so from time to time, I find myself working on patches for units stationed in Iraq. I'd love to say I came up with the concept for this, but unfortunately it was sent over as a very (very) rough stick figurey skull with a very silly USA helmet of sorts on fabric. I redid the skull and the turbin (turben?) and the rest is up on the screen.
In one of my old figure drawing classes we watched a movie called WIT. It chronicled a college professors battle with cancer and just how de-humanizing the clinical side of medicine can be. Our professor froze certain frames of the movie to draw. This was one of my favorites.
I'm working on a huge family book of sorts to get out by next years end. I figured it was time to celebrate people while they were here. Given that none of us (my family included) can live forever; I'll include sketches of cousins, aunts, uncles, grammas, or who-ever is apart of my big family. Friends too. If I know you, there's a good likely hood there will be a sketch of you.
These were some pictures I drew of my cousins running around after my uncle's memorial last year. A little sketchy, but they caught the mood I think.
