Sitting in Capitol Espresso, sketching people as they walk through… Speed sketching.
Like I said, I need practice getting faces and personalities on paper. This is a good way to do it.
Sundays are becoming my favorite day
Time to drink coffee and draw, listen to music, slow down.
Think about life…
Music: The Heist.
Macklemore and Ryan Lewis.
Holy crap, I gotta say its been a long time since a hip-hop album has knocked me on my ass. Think Roots, Danger Doom, and old school shit like Digable Planets, Beasties and De la Soul, this record (can I say that?) is awesome. Relevant American poetry…really, he even references that. Worth checking out if you love good music and are ok with ‘F’ bombs.
Check out ‘wings’ absolutely amazing.
It took me a long time to come up with something tonight. I stared and sketched and stared for a little to long really.
This is how I would start everyday if I didn’t have to work ‘for the man;’ a coffee and something to read. I’d allow my mind to wander, to escape too the place the book takes me. I’d let the news educate me, expand my horizons and open my mind. I’d let the fire of passion burn out of control and into something beautiful.
If I could start my morning that way, ease into the day. The frantic rush in the morning is a terrible standard to set for your day.
So I’m sipping coffee at Jimmy’s and was wondering what it would be like if a T-Rex was drinking coffee… I realized he couldn’t, his arms are to short. What a miserable existence no wonder they were so surly.
Coffee and geometric patterns are kinda the best way my spend a Sunday morning after a late night watching rock and roll. I used a sharpie, a pilot felt pen and a pencil to shade the background. I would have used color but I don’t (currently) have any I’m my little art bag.
