Woody Allen

I finally watched Annie Hall; the movie was so great!
There were so many great quotes and moments on how people interact. Woody Allen sure is a genius at capturing human nature and life. One of my favorite scene is when Woody Allen and Dianne Keaton (Annie Hall) are waiting in the line to purchase a movie ticket, and the guy in front of them is critiquing a particular movie on and on, and Allen is annoyed by the way the guy talks with fancy words without much of a point. Allen breaks the 3rd wall and points out to the viewer how obnoxious the guy is.
"What I wouldn't give for a large sock with horse manure in it. ...What do you do when you get stuck in a movie line with a guy like this behind you? It's just maddening." Hilarious.

This is a portrait of Woody Allen from the first monologue:



Congrats to Ravens!!! I am so excited to be living in this city filled with so much excitement.
To honor the Ravens and my pride for the team, I painted Ray Lewis in my sketchbook.
Wishing them great luck and amazing victory for the Superbowl!

(Sorry for the bad quality - I really should get a scanner so I don't have to update my illustrations using Photobooth).


Testing dollar items

Yesterday I went to a Japanese dollar store called Daiso.

They have amazing stuff there! And I found some brushes, watercolor, and air dry clay.

This is me testing out the clay.

Pretty snazzy.
Can't wait til I get to paint 'em!

I only got the black ink, but they turned out pretty cool!

That page was my last page for my sketchbook. Gotta find a new one.
Until then, I'll be drawing in paper napkins and such. You know, the usual art people paper.


Dana Scully

I've been waiting for so long, and now that I've had the chance, I totally forgot to show you the final drawing of Dana Scully!
Last week was the opening reception for the Light Grey Gallery; it's too bad I couldn't make it because from the pictures on flickr the reception seemed like such an amazing event!
Here's some information about the gallery I had the opportunity to contribute in:
"Curated by Light Grey Art Lab's own Lindsay Nohl, Francesca Buchko, Chris Hajny and Jenny Bookler, Girls: Fact + Fiction is a spectacular new exhibition that celebrates women from history, literature, film, music, culture, politics... and everything else!"

Persephone #2

I forgot to upload this! But I redrew Persephone with a whole new concept.

This is it ladies and gentlemen, Persephone:

Quote #1

This isn't a quote, but today I witnessed a 6th grade boy take a plastic knife and started cutting into the milk carton.
Must be drawn.
Here it is folks:

Another excuse I have for not uploading drawings is the fact that I haven't connected my scanner.

This is a drawing of Ghostface, Julianna Brion's cat. It's mostly from memory, which may explain the odd body shape.


School Days

I have to be honest; I haven't drawn at all like I originally planned, and I keep blaming it on school, but truthfully, I'm enjoying my life right now. Maybe it'll take the whole year to settle, but I want to make a promise to keep up the drawing.

So starting today I'll do tiny doodles just to get my days going.

There are quotes I want to remember students say to me or in class. That will be the basis of my drawings. We'll see what exciting, lovely messages students can inspire me today!

Stay tuned.
