It's been a while since I've drawn my face in a while...or at least I try to. Some of them I'm not very proud of. But there's a couple that I like. I played around with some of the Photoshop colors. Eventually, I'd like to get my hands on Painter sometime. When I took some of the college drawing classes, we did a bunch of self-portraits. I was never a big fan of drawing myself since I thought it was too narcistic or vein. But now I get to understand a little more about myself. However, I wouldn't draw and paint myself naked like Egon Schielles did. My ego is not big enough to. I don't know. Maybe someday when my work starts getting to the level of Paris Hilton hottness.

Stuff I normally draw.

I try to put some drawing time almost everyday. Like at least 30 minutes. What do I normally draw? Basically whatever I can feel from an illustration or some pictures and photos from magazines I normally stare at. You know. Like that lame ass dude trying to impress that hoochie mama from everyone's favorite late night show "Blind Date". He's all, "I wanna get to know cuz I'm feeling you. Do you feel what I'm feeling? Cuz I'm feeling you..." But on the serious and predictable side, I reference and draw from various magazines and books about skateboarding, fashion, video games, any kind of art, and martial arts. I try to vary my drawing subjects. But hey, everyone's gotta have a hobby. Often, I play around with some styles in my drawings. I hate to think I'm some kind of one trick pony. Recently, I decided to look back at my old sketchbook that I start from August to like early December of last year. It brought back some memories and things that I was experiencing when I did these drawings. Anyways, here's what I liked from my last sketchbook. Enjoy.

A New Year With My First Sketch Blog.

I've been planning to do a sketch/drawing blog for almost all of last. I kept on tellin' my buddy, Scott "The Cereal Killer" Warren about making a sketchblog. So here it is. Yes folks. My very first post.

The only blog I've ever done was a few things on myspace. But I really hate the blogging system. But I've noticed over the past years Blogger's got some really great stuff. Mainly blogs from my favorite artists and animators. I've also got some of my friends on blogger. When I see some of those blogs and posts, I was thinkin', "I wanna be cool just like them!" As lame as it sounds, blogging my sketches and drawings is a good way to express myself and get my drawings out there. As for now, here's a drawing of a bitchin' manitee wrestling with a scuba diver...or whatever you think what they're doin' together...shame on you...

I bet Jacques Cousteau can't break out of this gnarly leg lock
