To start off, here's some rough sketches of my boy Ezra I drew from a couple of photobooth pics:
Just some dudes:
Ohhh, I don't know what I was thinking here. I was waiting for Andrea as she was in a store and I happened to notice a strange sight in the storefront right in front of me: an outfit with some dark pants on a mannequin. Only the pants legs looked like a pirate's face. Don't ask me why, it just did. So I had to draw it. This then lead me onto a strange tangent of drawing woman as hats. It didn't last long:
What am I waiting for? You'll find out soon enough....
I saw this tall, lanky girl standing at a busstop after dropping Ava off at school. She wasn't alone, but looked lonely:
Like a good boy, I go to church. Sometimes I draw while listening to the sermon. Is that bad?
Just trying some stuff out:
Believe it or not, I can draw all gesture-y when the time calls for it. Afterall, I am an animator -- it's in my blood. Here are some pages of two of my favorite subjects (besides my wife), Ava and Ezra:
Did some sketches while at a local coffeeshop (how very 90's of me) on the one rare occasion we got to go out sans kids:
So there ya go. Have a great New Years Day, people. And don't worry about me -- there'll be plenty of ham, collard greens and black-eyed peas on my plate, that's for sure.
Oh, and one more thing: thank you all for making 2006 such a great year for me here at The Ward-O-Matic. Many thanks for all the great comments, conversations, and connections I've made throughout the year. It's been a wild ride; looking forward to seeing what kind of year 2007 will be. Based on what I know so far, it'll be a doozy.
Happy New Year!
