Hey look, a post.

Hey folks!

So it's been a quiet summer, art-wise. Life-wise, it's been one of those short, busy, mostly cloudy, what-the-hell-happened-to-my-summer summers, but I'm not complaining. Well I am, kind of. Class? Work? I miss being a kid and having no responsibilities. (You: Shut up, we all do, get to the point.)

So! A friend, I'll call him 'Danny', gave me a sketchbook last Christmas. It's been aging on my shelf since then, so I think it's ripe and ready for use. Goal: to fill it. Started out strong.. made it four pages. But still! I'm leaving it out on my desk (or maybe my floor), with pencils tucked inside, as a reminder. Thinking of adding a post-it that says 'HEY YOU LAZY DRAW SOMETHING' ..yeah, I yell at myself a lot in note form.

Anyway, here it is.

the sketchbook itself (amazing!)



studied grids and typography briefly in my summer class



what happens when I let my brain wander



copied from a Robert Longo drawing - check him out, pretty amazing charcoal work



doodles in preparation for ..something

One other random thing: I designed a logo for the Tumbleweed Wanderers a couple months back. Coming to a t-shirt near you, if you're near one of their shows. Which you should be.


made of real twigs! or rather, photos thereof. so if you saw me scrounging around at Indian Rock.. yeah, there was a reason for that.

Well, school's starting up next week, so I hope to have stuff to post on a more regular basis. And pages from the sketchbook! And maybe a couple of other personal projects that are in progress! We'll see..

Thanks for reading!
