Long Horn Sheep

They look innocent enough don't they, but I'm pretty sure one of these sheep stole my wallet last night.

My Right Foot

Since taking the time to draw my right foot, my left foot has stopped talking to me. I'm going to have to give it the sock without the whole in it to try to make amends.

Angie at the Museum

I'd done a couple of drawings before turning my attention to Angie. She was the picture of concentration and that always makes for a great subject. I. once again have posted her drawing below. The figure behind Angie is Chad Wallace. To see what he was up to go to links and click can work it out from there.

I'm loving her enthusiam

Night at the Museum

Last night was the drawing class at the Museum of Natural History, every Friday you get a museum drawing, at least for the next few weeks. I didn't take the time to find out what these animals were but what ever they were they looked like this.....ish.

These were done ay the Society of Illustrators on Tuesday night. Angie and I have been going pretty consistantly since my MA program was completed. Life drawing is always a challenge but a night at the Society is always a good time. Angie's drawing is posted below.

Angie's Life Drawing

Angie is really passionate about drawing lately and is making huge strides.

Last Call

Once I'm a few drawings in I allow myself to get more expressive. These drawings are more interesting to me and certainly a direction I want to pursue,

Rained On

Yes folks, summers finaly over. This is a pleasant little weekend scene though. I'm up at Susie ans Ed's cabin stealing wifi. I'm a modern day Bill Sykes.

these were prehistoric deer with enormous antlers that were used to attract the ladies. Isn't nature grand? They used to shed these antlers every year and regrow them. This particular deer coined the phrase "Antler Envy"

Black Finn

Lunch time special, the Black Finn is on 53rd and 3rd. It's the bar I found to replace JD's which was closed down by the health department. I miss JD's, they had the best chilli, the health department didn't agree.

I like these craft fairs and flea markets, they're great for drawing and hey, you never know when your going to stumble on a missing Van Gough.

Johnny Mack's

This is a great place in Park Slope. 8th ave and 12th street. It's what I'd call a real Brooklyn bar but then what would I know, I'm English.

Another drawing session at the Museum of Natural History. This is the skeleton of a small camel.......unfiltered

Clothing Optional

Yesterday was clothing optional day at work. It's supposed to increase productivity but I think I'd have to see the figures on that.

The Tea Lounge

Brooklyn Bridge

I could probably fill a sketch book with drawings of this bridge alone. I sold this bridge to a tourist once, not something I'm proud of but I did give him a good price.

I'm pushing a little bit to change the way I'm drawing so this one really pleased me because I allowed myself to loosen up.

Gils is Angie's cousin which makes her my cousin through marrige once removed and then put back really quickly before anybody noticed

Friday, October 5, 2007


Last night we went to a drawing class at the Museum of Natural History. It was great to be let loose in such a place after hours. We'll be going each week for a while so there will be a few such drawings coming. A great class, I learned a lot. I don't think they feed their dinosaurs enough though.

life Drawing

Back to the Society last night and we took Iain and Gillian with us. Very impressed that Gillian did some drawing and even more impressed with the results (posted below) I think everbody should draw and Gillian, who works in the science field, is a prime example of someone who should keep at it.

Gillian's drawing

She'll do

Norman's Truck

Norman stopped by to see me drawing his truck and a fine truck it is too.

John Deer

Abandoned his bulldozer outside the Stanton house so we hot wired it and took it for a joy ride. It's diceptively quick, we had it up to 95 on the freeway untill we broadsided it and hit a deer, ironicaly called John. What are the chances
