Thor Ragnarok premiered last week ushering a new blockbuster movie season besides the usual summer one (Justice League will be coming out as well as Coco, Murder on the Orient Express, etc!) I still haven’t watched it yet but in anticipation of the film, I drew some of the core characters for my Inktober last month. I’ll be catching it hopefully on Wednesday after Election Day! So stoked! Have you seen the film yet?
Time really flies, it felt like only a month ago I was watching Game of Thrones season 07 when it was really 3 months ago!
I have been working on Inktober posts on Instagram for the whole month of October as well as entering competitions, adding items to my online shops, sprucing up portfolio – it’s been kinda non-stop since late September!
I will be posting some of the Inktober posts here as well but in the meantime, if you are curious, you can see the quick video of all the drawings I did for Inktober, all 31 (plus one additional which I ended up redoing!) here!
But for today, as promised (a while back!) part 02 of the creative weekend back in late September! From Steven Broadway’s fashion sketch session. Some 4 minute, 7 minute to 10 minute drawings.
With 2-day Risograph workshop!
With Dare2Draw event!
With Steven Broadway Fashion Sketch Session!
It was a very fun back-to-back creative activities over the weekend. First time using Risograph machine and riso printing, which yielded some interesting results (top first 3 images).
Dare2draw event back to its original format though now you can view the entire video on their website/youtube channel. Oddly, I won first prize in their QuickDraw contest that evening! I haven’t won first prize in five years for the Quickdraw contest and funny enough the person leading the risograph workshop was one of the guests and judge of the Quickdraw five years ago. The guests and judges this time were the creative team from comic book series ‘Black’. Their story and talk was quite inspirational! Image on bottom right features some 2 minute sketches, signed copy of Black final issue and my prizes- Wacom Intuos Pro 5 refurbished; $100 gift certificate to Jerrys Artarama!
Sunday was a return to risograph where we as a group finished a group zine and completed our own personal projects. To cap the creative weekend, fashion sketch session with Steven Broadway! I will post those drawings sometime during the week. Maybe create some riso prints of some of my fashion drawings. Who knows!
I am thinking of giving away those booklets on top right corner if ever I start a patreon page. Thoughts on that one? The booklets fold out to the ‘Donut Tempt Me’ poster.
I am still alive! I thought I posted this back in August but I didn’t! While watching Game of Thrones, I was able to watch Westworld Season 01 and I was hooked! Disturbed but hooked!
I guess why I find the show more disturbing than even Game of Thrones or any tv show (although Netflix’s Black Mirror comes a close second!) is because how close it is to becoming a reality. That perhaps it can exist in our near future where people can pay a whole lotta money to produce violent acts on AI that are made to look human for their own pleasure and entertainment. The show, the story is so gripping, I ended up watching the two movies that came before the HBO tv show with Yul Brenner. Quite freaky, quite bordering uncanny valley.
I have been working on Westworld fanart but it have been proving to be difficult. So here are some fashion sketches a while back that looks very Westworld inspired! @reignglobal looking very much like Maeve with her partner in crime, Hector.
I am working on several projects as well as updating my website at the same time. Meanwhile for more current updates, you can check out my IG account: @dittofunkysketch123!
Any thoughts on Westworld, GoT Season 07?
I guess Twin Peaks will never leave our hearts!
