Katie K-9

My wife and I occasionally listen to Katie K-9, on FM 107. She gives dog advice. I found a pic of her, and said wow, gotta draw her!

Dogs & sketches

Here are a few sketches from my last sketchbook, that I liked. Also, a preliminary sketch for a commissioned painting of some basset hounds.

Life Drawing

I started attending The Atelier, in Minneapolis. Great opportunity to really study the figure, in the classic sense, with some great one-on-one instruction. We are doing sustained poses, over 4 sessions. Here is my first one.

Memory Marlon and a Joker

Did a sketch from memory of Marlon Brando, after watching his brilliant performance from Apocalypse Now (Redux). I had taken an online course this past summer, with Stephen Silver, and he talks about memory sketching all the time. I think its a great excercize, and I would like to try more of it.

Also, a Heath Joker (marker and colored pencil).
