Illustration Friday - "E is for..."

...elephant. I've been working with acrylics lately, painting a couple of vinyl figures. Since the paint tubes were out, I took a stab at putting something down on canvas for this week's IF. Planning to redo this and hopefully to a larger scale, but I've just been playing with colors and searching for a pallette that works. There was a pattern with hills intended for the background, but peach over orange did not turn out too well...I lost the whole thing.

Illustration Friday - "Sea" part4

You guessed it, another napkin sketch, lunch time at Rubio's. Thought I'd sqeeze in one more post for Illustration Friday.

Another thing I missed about Seattle was the aquarium...just blocks from the Art Institute. I ended up visiting so much, it only made sense to purchase a membership. I recall sitting in the atrium one day and and sketching for hours....not realizing it was already 6:00pm? The workers were making thier last round before locking up and just barely saw me sitting there. I still recall the worker saying, "Sir, we've been closed for the past hour..." All I could reply was, "Oops...see ya tomorrow".

Illustration Friday - "Sea" part3

Here's a napkin sketch that was wedged in the pages of an older sketch book. How I miss walking 2-3 blocks from AIS and heading over to Anthony's Seafood Restaurant for some for some lunch and some sketching.

Illustration Friday - "Sea" part2

Just grabbed some tacos at Rubio's this afternoon. Not too busy considering it's "$ 1.00 Taco Tuesday", but managed to find a small table next to thier fish tank of tropical fish. Threw down a quick napkin sketch while waiting for my order. Attempted some colors in Photoshop.

Illustration Friday - "Sea"

Tiburon, Ca. - great place for small shops, boutiques, restaurants and Independent Films...not to mention the view of San Francisco off into the distance.

The sun is out, the parking lot is dry and there's a nice cool breeze outside of our building at work. Grabbed the first drawing supplies in front of me and took a 15 minute break to sketch a guard shack. Cardboard, Sharpie and good old fashion white out.

Sitting in the car while the rain continues to poor and flood Marin county. Messing with the good ol' Tombo brush pen. Hoping to throw some color on this digitally (not any time soon).

Came across these while rumaging through some old sketch books. The top left and bottom right were done back in March 05' while watching the news. The top right and bottom left were from a memory sketch of a waiter at IHOP in downtown San Rafael, Ca.
