I keep thinking about how when Lj becomes dead enough, I will just be able to throw nudes right up here without bothering to put them behind a cut. But count yourself lucky, for now.Collapse )

This was a sketch on BART in mechanical pencil I liked, and then put through some photoshop filters. Yes, filters. I know, it's not very dignified.

High Hawk Season off the new Mountain Goats album is quite to my fancy. (And I see now the linked video features a bonus appearance at the end by Red Lobster.) I just wanted to tell the world this, but I feel bad posting without including artwork, so here's a sketch from BART:

Totally worth it. The youtube link above cuts off just as it's getting good, but if you want an approximation of the experience, this might work.

Opening act Megan Washington, appearing here with random audience member:

I keep forgetting her name is pronounced "cackey" rather than "kah-key". This is a problem with discovering artists soley via the printed word.
Collected selection of sketches collaged:

I'll forbear cross-posting, and just note that there are some of my drawings here.

I also did some bar-sketching friday in addition to regular life-drawing, and went to an all-day drawing marathon Sunday. Maybe I will scan some later. Here, have this instead:
