Studies: Observing the Subject Over and Over

Studies are something all visual artists do, pretty much every day.  Studies are about cementing the observation of a subject into a visual approach you can apply to your paper or canvas. But studies don’t always happen before you make a more finished piece. On this page spread, which is in a Canson 180 Sketchbook […]

In Context: Bedtime Rituals Part 2

Sometimes at the end of the day I like to watch “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” and sketch Ryan Stiles. There is something refreshing and healing about having a good laugh at the end of the day. I guess this means that in my philosophy Ryan Stiles’ work is as essential as puppies. (See previous […]

Bob Newhart: Television Comedy

Spoiler Alert, I am going to give something important away. I’m sorry in advance. I cannot help myself. If you’ve ever been nearby when I talk TV you’ll know how much this thing I’m going to mention means to me and the art of writing for TV. So just know this: if you haven’t watched […]

Working with Analogous Colors

Late at night, relaxing and watching British comedy shows I simply have to sketch. This sketch from December 2019 is an analogous color sketch of Johnny Vegas when guesting on “QI.” Everyone needs to watch “QI.” It’s vastly fun, entertaining, and sometimes you even learn something.

Things Our Journals Tell Us

If you look at my journal from January and February 2020 you learn a lot about me.  You learn that I like to use my lunch break to watch a little bit of TV and sketch. You’ll learn that I became fascinated with the young James Corden in “Gaven & Stacey.” You’ll also learn that […]
