Comics, meeting doodles, & Creative Alliance sketches

First up, here’s the new versions of the first four pages of the comic. Lot of stuff got changed—couple more edits in the text as well.

Page 4 is obviously in progress. Page 3 needs a tie-piece added to the last panel and some wordage to the wine bottle in the first panel.

Next up, some sketches from a Creative Alliance life drawing session. They’re every Saturday at 10, $10 if you’re not a member, $3 if you are.

As usual, the first drawing or two sucked. (Got there at the start of the ten minute poses, 5 minutes into the first pose—it ended before I got too far along.)

Next couple were a little better.

And after that, I was tired/bored, so the last one was crap.

Here’s a tipsy sketch done of a friend while leisurely having a couple beers at the Blarneystone.

BTW, he doesn’t look this rough in real life—I purposefully went that direction since I knew a more nuanced sketch rarely works well in a distracting environment. Oh, and the “light” spots are due to the scanner.

Last up, two doodles from a meeting at work. The first was the usual random junk that gets scribbled during these affairs; the second is an altogether matter. It started as a simple off-hand sketch of a comic-stylized side-view of an eye – and then suddenly the meeting just went on FOREVER. As the meeting dragged on, I absent-mindedly added a detail here, a detail there, and it eventually grew to the point where I ran out of page. I’ll probably put it in Painter sometime this week and see if I can add the bits I wanted to add but couldn’t, since, well, you know, the paper ran out.

By the way, the next Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School Baltimore life-drawing session is next Monday, September 27, 2010 at the Windup Space.

Best damn life-drawing you’ll find in town. If I wasn’t helping run it, I’d be there drawing. BTW, check out this LAZERBITCH video if you want a feel for what they’re like. (The Windup Space is in there at the end too.)

Odds & Ends

Here’s a buch of random doodles from the past couple months or so . . . this was the first of several blue pen sketches done on a notepad during some unit meeting or another.  Basically I was letting the sketch go wherever it wanted, then suddenly realized I had to stop since it was unintentionally starting to look pornographic.  Oops.

So I drew one of the presenters instead.

And some lady talking about stapler safety or something.

A meeting about lawn mower safety . . .

Next up was an itty-bitty drawing for a cocktail menu for Dr. Sketchy’s Baltimore, the burlesque life-drawing class that Alexis and I run.  The drawing was originally done in pencil and then was colored in Photoshop.

And here’s what the menu looked like when it was done.

I think we ended up using the menu once and then tossed it.  Ohs wells.

Speaking of Sketchy related stuff, here’s the one half drawing I did at Sketchycon up in NYC this year.  I got halfway through it and then got distracted talking to other branch heads for the rest of the session.  This happened the year before as well – since it’s the first event of Sketchycon, everyone’s so interested in doing the meet & greet that most of the folks never really end up drawing.  That, and, well, doing shots with Bill and the bartender.

Next up, a crappy doodle I did on a lunch break while thinking about ideas for a Dr. Sketchy’s flyer.

And last (at least Dr. Sketchy’s-wise) was a sketch I did of Nicolette le Faye that was put in the Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School Baltimore’s first ever Art show.

Plug -> If you’re in the Baltimore area and are interested in attending Dr. Sketchy’s, the next one is July 12th with Mourna Handful.

Anyways, here’s two more sketches I doodled during a section meeting…

And a team meeting . . .

…and that’s the end of all the section/unit/team/group/floor/building/block meeting doodles.  Lord.  Anyways, a blog post or two back I said I’ve been teaching myself how to oil paint with Corel Painter.

This was posted before, but it should probably go up again.

Initial sketch . . .

That doodle with the arrow on the right is a note telling me to change the nose so he doesn’t look like Snarf from the Thundercats.

Which, APPARENTLY, I ignored.  Damnit.

Tomorrow I’ll put up the first two pages of the comic book I spent all day today working on.

Dr. Sketchy’s tonight folks!

Yeah, yeah, I know I haven’t put any new stuff up yet, the last week or two has been utter hell, and has no sign of lightening up until at least Thursday.  Maybe I can do some scanning on my lunch break though, who knows….

BUT, busy-busy doesn’t mean bad . . . Dr. Sketchy’s is tonight with LiiLii Lipstick!

7:00 o’clock at Dionysus.  So if you’re looking for something to do on a dreary rainy Monday evening, and drawing the pretty LiiLii while drinking a cold beer sounds like something to do, come join us.

Check the main website for more details….
