A New Year, A New Hope

Second post! Just watched the ball drop in Times Square (but on TV!) Being that the latter part of 2016 was lousy, here’s to 2017, a new year, a new hope – like in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and Star Wars: A New Hope!!!! (such good movies!!)

A Christmas Story – the Nutcracker

It’s been a while! This past December have been a whirlwind living with a cold coughing and sneezing, runny nose full of mucus and phelgm; Christmas cards to write; a less than stellar end-of-the-year review at my job; celebrity deaths; death in the family. December and just this latter half of 2016 has been lousy!! Thus, not so many posts. The silver lining – being able to attend sketch nights at the Society of Illustrators including this one of the Nutcracker Ballet!
This was supposed to be a Christmas post!
Sigh

A Chaplin-riffic Sketch Night

Sketch Night at the Society of Illustrators a couple of weeks ago and this one was focused on Charlie Chaplin! So much fun to draw, even if most of the time it was 2-5 minutes long. First image contains the 2-5 minute poses, second image is the 7-10 minutes, although the simple black line drawing I think was 5 minutes. I need to brush up on Charlie Chaplin movies – apparently the one with the corn on cob machine was from Modern Times!

A Season of Thanks

Thanksgiving may be over but I want to extend a thank you to all the subscribers, the readers and the visitors to this sketch blog. It has been inconsistent many times and there were a few wacky posts, but thank you for sticking with me and hopefully you have found one or two posts that were inspirational or had put a smile to your face! 

These handlettered cards with watercolor ink were for close friends who had helped me in the past and with my wedding earlier this year!

Star Trek Inktober 04 Final

The fourth and final set of Inktober centered around Star Trek 50th anniversary and inspired by Jake Parker’s Inktober prompt list!
First two: burn, surprise
Last two: wreck, friend

Star Trek Inktober 03

The third nine set of Inktober centered around Star Trek 50th anniversary and inspired by Jake Parker’s Inktober prompt list!
First three: flight, squeeze, big
Middle three: little, slow, one dozen
Last three: tired, box, creepy
Still trucking with inktober -nearing the home stretch! I am actually all caught up, just have to do the last one for October 31st, the key word ‘friend’. I already have in mind what to do with this one and if you are a Star Trek fan, perhaps you will know as well!
