Sleeping Beauty

Hey all, here's one that I drew while I was in Brazil...This is of my wife, Rosana taking a nap. She would take them from time to time and I would sometimes use the opportunity to do some figure drawing :) I just added some colors and some texture to this in Photoshop. Hope you like!

More Airport Studies.

Hey all! These are some sketches I did on my way back from Brazil, in the São Paulo airport where I had a 10 hr layover. It wasn't fun, but I did get a lot of drawing done :) I was mainly drawing comic work while there, but I couldn't resist the opportunity to draw a captive audience while I stayed up all night drinking espresso and eating lots of Pão de Queijo. Anyway, hope you like this!

Red Shoes

Hey everyone! Just did this up in photoshop from a ink/inkwash drawing that I done. You know, doing these more experimental pieces really makes me long to do some illustrations or something where I get to spend more time and really flesh out the different aspects of it. These are generally done without any real plan(as I'm sure is apparent), but during the process I always have some kind of interesting revelation as to how to combine different mediums/textures/etc. I'm enjoying this. Hope you guys are too!

Style Experiment.

Study of a photo by Irving Penn(not sure who the subject is). I wanted to try some different things stylistically with this one...I'm a big fan of Sergio Toppi's work, and I've always wanted to try some of the distortion techniques he uses in his work. I simplified the shapes in this but still tried to keep an element of realism. The color scheme is analogous with a complimentary. Hope you like!

I'm back!

Hey all! Long time no post, but I'm back! Probably not going to do this every day, but I will be doing my best to regularly post on here, maybe a few times a week. Hope you like this one!
