One sketchbook done, another started, and a couple of watercolour sketches (sorry bout the recent lack of posts; been kinda busy)...

It seems to be a recurring motif with me to get extremely depressed every winter around the holiday season, and each year it gets worse and worse. This time around it was an exceptionally ugly winter in the city, lots of mud and dirt, and not a whole lot of snow. At times like that I start spending a lot more time writing in my journal, or reading books, and not doing much drawing at all. But I just came back from two weeks up north, and got my yearly snow needs all covered, so I think my mental state is finally recuperating. ...In the mean time, this is a random collecdtion of some of the drawings that I've done since around December...

This was done about the time I was leaving Core. The idea came to me one day while listening to Pink Floyd at work. I wanna do a larger version of it in oils, just need to find a proper model... This one is guache over watercolour.


One day I was taking the GO bus on the 404, it was a pretty windy day and grey and hazy outside. Out of the corner of my eye I saw this tree bending in the wind. And for some reason I immediately thought that it would be quite awesome if there were a naked girl standing there next to it in the wind. Donno why, but the idea just seemed very cinematic to me. So when I got home I painted this sketch...
I wanted to send this to Lucia, but when I took the paper out from the watercolour pad it got torn on the bottom. Sorry Lu, I'll send you something else then...


Just sitting in the librarry one day, thinking about 23...





I love drawing people when they move a lot!

after... :)









These are from the new sketchbook:

Wouldnt it be neat if people could levitate like that? i think it would be quite awesome...

Hey Andrew,

As you guessed, It's crazy busy at school at this time with me involving in two productions.
I really look forward to the internship at HOC to work with you guys and hopefully we can go painting landscape and figure on our free time.
