Out Cold...

Sorry for the delay in posting....I'm just recovering from that nasty Cold bug going around. I've been sketching while laying in bed, so hopefully I can post some new drawings. Stay healthy everyone!

One new project I'd like to share...
I just received in the mail to participate in the "100 Artist Moleskine Project". This will be for the Volume II Edition in which the small moleskine book is mailed from artist to artist with the goal to support the Center for Cartoon Studies Scholarship Fund. I'll be sure to give my review and process in the weeks to come. But if you want to get in on the waiting list to participate, please visit the site and mention my name.

Okay, I said I would clean the dust off my sketchbook and instead, I lied and entered another NDS "Colors" Weekly Challenge.

Topic was FUTURE, so here's my tribute to the original Marty McFly film, "Back-To-The-Future". I love that Doc Brown line at the end, "Roads? Where we're going......we don't need roads". When I saw this in the theater, I looked at my dad and said "There's gonna be a part 2?!!!". LOL.

Pocket full of change

I've been fully immersed in using the "Colors" application on my Nintendo DS and decided to enter a small illustration contest on the main site. The deadline was Feb. 27th, but the announcement for the winner has seemed to be forgotten. So I decided to go ahead and share my entry.

The theme was "99". New Zealand artists Greg Broadmore and Christian Pierce held an exhibition where each drew one item....99 times (only using the Colors app on the NDS)! Chris chose hot-rods and Greg chose a woman slipping on a banana peel. Here's a link to the method of their madness. They each released a book showcasing their "99 exhibit: Deadly Slips and Dodgy Sleds". Printing was limited quantity :(

I came up with 5 ideas and narrowed it down to a simplistic subject that everyone could relate to.....loose change. Everyone has loose change in their pockets, purse, backpack....and even between the pillows of your couch. LOL.

I made sure that the change I drew equaled out to 99 cents and I've gone as far to add 1994 and 1996 to a couple coins to keep with the theme. Okay, that was a bit corny :D

Winner will be chosen by Greg and Chis.....So what does the winner get? Actually there will be 2 winners awarded (1 book each). Overall, it was a fun contest and I met a couple artist along the way. As for now, I'll give my DS a break and start giving my sketchbook some TLC again. Have a good weekend!!!

Continuous rain and high winds in the Bay Area. Staying indoors to sketch.
