so I drew two things today. First I spent a bunch of time drawing a group of old friends from highschool because I saw one the other day and another started talking to me on IM tonight. They are all among The Coolest of Dudes. Then I felt really self conscious about showing that on this blog so I drew me with lazer eyes. Now that self consciousness seems silly so I will post them both. If asked, I will take the cool dudes image down, but hopefully it's not THAT off the mark in likeness. or whatever. That's Steve, Chris, and Andrew, by the by.
there's not a whole lot I miss about
highschool, but having those three in the same place was always pretty fun.
the irony of this image is that I drew it mainly to try out a transparent and veined set of tailfins, but I'm pretty sure everyone's attention will instead go to the breasts/eyes/butt/hair/whathaveyou. but I knew that would happen. so yeah!
This is one I'd like to come back to and add more detail.
I thought I'd go back over a recent drawing to put in some detail. it's alright I guess.
this is my 80th post, only 20 more to go and I'll be at my 100th! pretty neat. this is definitely the most updated account with anything that I've ever had. although I'm clipping along with Twitter also. wheee computers.
So this is the second thursday that Canadian Portrait Thursday completely slipped my mind until I was just about done the drawing. This is the second digital drawing since I announced I was going to do some paper drawings for a while.
luckily this is MY BLOG and I can do what I want on here without apologising. ;D
also, this may be an alien. or an alien transvestite. maybe? very fashonable, whatever it is.
Rick Mercer, a very cool dude, who interviews Canadian politicians and goofs his way around national events, is the Canadian portrait this week. At several points in this drawing he was looking dangerously like Tom Hanks, but I think it sort of looks more like him now. not sure how I manage to make people look like other people... very weird.
quite tired now, so goodnight!
Credit for the reference shot goes to this John W. Macdonald person, who's flickr album lies here.
No Canadian portrait tonight, although I do know who I will do. it will have to be tomorrow night though. my dad sent me some info on my grandpa, and I ended up poking around on the internet all night looking up his name and other details about him.... I might share a bit next week about that.
in the meantime, please be satisfied with this awful sketch of me at the computer in the bedroom. (I'm tired!)
I went downtown and I don't really think I was prepared. I'm still a bit off.... I really havent been around people much for the last.... oh, six months or so? still feeling pretty disconnected. Halifax is beautiful though.
Anyway, first panel is me walking down prince street (I think the restaraunt I passed was called the Wooden Monkey). Second is me getting startled by a homeless guy. I'm not used to people on the street talking to me at all. Third is me down by the harbour. it was nice down there.
I think I will take Jill up on the offer to go out for lunch, possibly with Stacy also.
So I'm betting that nobody knew what the heck I was talking about in my last post, since I got no comments at all on it. oh well, haha.
I'm in Halifax now. I'm feeling sort of dazed so I don't think I'm quite appreciating it for what it is, since the weather is beautiful and the city seems quite wonderful but all I want to do is mope around.
that will pass quickly I hope.
anyway, here is a drawing that has little to do with Halifax.
