Mischief Night

A scene from last night, taking place
in a remote desert canyon! This painting
was a gift for a friend.

Figure drawing from last night, and Ben Franklin.

What to Be for Halloween

You're running out of time!
Here are some ideas.

Also, here is a comic that Ben and I made for REPORTER
about a year ago. If you wore any of these costumes, no offense.

Spiders and Morning Glories

A tiny picture--"5 x "7. Based on a sketch from
the beginning of the summer, which was based
on an old doodle from an Art History class two-
or-so years ago. Sometimes things work their
way down the pipes slowly!

Is Drawing like Riding a Bicycle?

Here are some figure drawings. The bad news is, in the Spring
I was doing much better drawings in half the time these took.
I'm out of shape. I'm not even showing you the worst ones.

The good news is, I've found a great place to draw for a
reasonable price. And I get to be around some great artists
who will cause that spark of competition.

The coffee shop guys are not from the session, obviously.
Just fillin' space.

I want a job, and being a resourceful young lad,
I have been brainstorming some new Ways to Get
What I Want!

VMFA and Denis the Menace

The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts is sweet.
It's an easy walk from my place, and admission
is free. I've been there three times in the past
four days, I think.

Great exhibits of american and european painting,
plus really cool indian art, and I haven't even made
it to the pre-colombian section yet.

I was pretty tickled to see this statue of St. Denis in
the Renaissance Art gallery. I'm not gonna lie, I did
a lot of day dreaming and doodling in Art History class,
but that guy's story made me perk up my ears and listen.

Oh, also I'm not really supposed to be using pen or water-
color or whiteout in the museum. Pencils only. But I've found
if I'm really polite to the right security gaurds, or else just
really sneaky, I can get around that.
