Daily sketches begin

I bought the Artist's Way over the summer and have just, in the last week, sat down to read it and go through the exercises. The one thing I am suppose to do - according to the book - is "artist's pages" which is just a brain dump first thing in the morning, 3 written pages of whatever comes to mind. A way to flush things out and clear my mind. I have also decided to put to use the nice 5.5x8 inch sketchbook my friend Guillermo gave me for Christmas to do another kind of daily log. I call the book "Day in the Life: ordinary object sketches". So that each day I also take time to draw something that happens to be around me.

This is one of my houseplants and my first "ordinary object" sketch.

Walken Situation

I was missing out on being part of an art show this year but was able to squeak by to get into this one. I was a tribute to Christopher Walken and was an awesome show to be a part of at the Pulic Works in SF on Black Friday November 28th.

This is a 16x20 piece stenciled and spray painted with a touch of gouache and cut black glitter paper for his hair.
