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?
Getting stoked for Season 07 of Game of Thrones! Will it feel like winter in the middle of July? I am sure it will because I am already feeling chillls for this new season! Will you be watching?
Second digital sketch was done to match the posters for Season 07!:
I guess Twin Peaks will never leave our hearts!
The show started in the 90s, there was a movie made after the show, and now this year, there is a new show of Twin Peaks following some of the characters from the town 20-something years later!
The person who hosted the sketch night at the Society of Illustrators and the models created a good interpretation of the show- some of the characters you see here in the sketches: Audrey Horne, Sheriff Harry S Truman, Shelley Johnson, the Log Lady, Bob, even Agent Cooper!
Anybody seen the old show? Anybody watching the 2017 version?
I am excited about the announcement that Star Trek Discovery will premiere September 24!! Now that I have jot that down in my calendar along with other tv premieres I am looking forward to (Game of Thrones July 16; The Defenders August 18) let’s talk a little about the characters here shall we?
This lil fanart is still a work in progress but on the left is Sonequa Martin-Green who will play first officer Michael Burnham in the starship U.S.S. Shenzhou. Right of her is Michelle Yeoh who will play Captain Georgiou of U.S.S. Shenzhou. Possible female leads of the show even tho the show is called ‘Star Trek Discovery’ based on the starship Discovery?? Love!! This should be interesting indeed! I have always loved Captain Janeway from Star Trek Voyager but my fave captain is still Captain Picard. Captain Janeway is still a close second!
A bit late on this but still wanted to create a quick fanart of Adam West Batman since Mr. West passed away last Sunday and I was saddened by the news! Adam West Batman was the first Batman I saw on TV on VHS when I was a kid in the 80s! Then Michael Keaton Batman came along in 1989 and everything became very dark, moody and broody! Still love Batman anyways, even if he’s no longer his campy self! R.I.P Adam West, wish east coast Gotham paid a tribute to you as L.A did!
