Thanksgiving Day 2011

November 24, 2011


Above: A page from my Stonehenge kraft paper journal. Pentel Pocket Brush Pen gesture sketch of a resting dog. I went in with acrylic paint and colored the background after I finished the sketch. Then I used some of that decorative translucent Japanese tape, laying it in place and carefully cutting around the drawing (but not into the paper).

I'm fortunate to be able to spend some time with friends and relatatives today. Whatever your take on Thanksgiving Day I hope you're able to do the same.

Plan to get some sketching done, maybe of your family and friends as you chat, or of pets, or well, the zoo is open, that might not be a bad idea.

For my review on the problems I had with the Stonehenge kraft paper please read the post here.

    Enjoy Thanksgiving! I really enjoy your blog although I am a self-taught artist trying to learn to draw. I sweat bullets drawing but am working on making it a daily habit. I am not of a technical or logical mind so all perspective books that I have gotten so far lose me. ANYWAY, I started this note to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving.

    Jessica, thanks for your kind note. I’m glad you find the blog helpful. A daily drawing habit is the best.

    Check out Chelsea’s book on perspective
    I find it is one of the better ones, and it’s presented in an easy to understand fashion because of all the illustrations directed at comics artists.

    Melly, thank you for your kind note. I’m glad that you enjoy the blog and are somewhat entertained by my enthusiasms. Right now I’m having trouble with transition from outdoor biking season so I’m trying to focus, but it’s difficult!
