Spent a nice relaxing Memorial Day weekend in the Presidio Area.

On Sunday, I had a chance to visit the Presidio National Cemetary and took a few photos. When you first enter the gate, you immediately see the huge U.S. flags along the side. Looking closer, every grave site was decorated with a minature U.S. Flag.

The next day, I headed towards the Lucas Letterman Digital Center. There, I had a chance to find a nice sunny spot at the park in front of the Letterman building. The landscape is gorgeous and it has just enough space for anyone to enjoy a small picnic, for playing some catch with the kids or just to read a book.

This was a first, but right after I finished this sketch (above) those same "still-life subjects" came by and a friendly art related converstation began. Come to find out, the one in green is a professional photographer, the one in blue (15 years in Graphic Design) designed his site, and the one in white used to play tennis professionally. Just super nice people that get together every weekend for a picnic and to catch up on things.

Grabbed a bite to eat at a Chinese Restaurant in the South Bay.

Such a great selection of food to choose from, we decided to try a delicious dish with cod fish.

Here's a couple sketches from that evening. Trying to adjust to this new brush pen I recently purchased (more control than a Tombo Pen).
Warmed-up with a tree across the street. Then sketched my tiny bowl of rice.

Here's an oldie...my girlfriend and I came across a pottery store in Benicia, Ca. and painted a set of coasters for our apartment back in Jan. 2005. We enjoyed it so much, we decided to reserve a table during the following month for Valentine's Day. My girlfriend, being the graphic designer that she is, painted a serving bowl with fancy patterns (too shy to post) and with Star Wars Episode III just around the corner, I had robots and jedi's on my mind. At the time, I was really stoked about Warren Fu's concept designs for General Grevious and loved how that charater turned out on the Cartoon Network version. I know the design had nothing to do with Valentine's Day, but it was the first thing I threw down on paper.
