It is nice and sunny outside, for once, and instead of soaking up the rays, I am going to be spending a much needed day in the studio.
Going for two weeks without a real drawing session feels much like an athlete would after not working out for that long – my drawing muscle needs a good warm up to get going again.
Peonies are in season right now, and I am obsessed with them. They are just so fluffy and delicious looking!
Choosing floral subjects for a warm up (or trees, or what have you) is perfect for me – the lines are purely organic and curvilinear, so I can work much more freely. I have a couple projects I need to work on, so it’s good to have this piece to come back to when my drawing hand is feeling a little cold.
Fellow rider Shawn Kilmer has commissioned a custom drawing from me. Shawn took this awesome photograph:
and has this website: www.shawnkilmer.com.
Here is the rough draft for the piece I will be drawing for him:
I am excited to work on the final drawing, and also to get back to work on the Book.
I was very fond of this color scheme used for a clothing display at Buffalo Exchange.
This photo of Jake was taken at local store Vintage Pink. This store is rad! Their giant showroom has a huge selection of great vintage furniture – I may have to give Lounge Lizard a second thought the next time I go vintage shopping.
Also, I got a new drawing buddy. His name is Theo.
Off to the studio!
