Weekend drawing of some butterflies fluttering around a mushroom patch. I used the butterfly wings as a place to experiment with patterns and found drawing all the little circles to be very meditative. This is practice for an upcoming book about butterflies I'll be illustrating later this year.
Exploring the possibilities of a single tear drop. My process started with a couple dozen thumbnail sketches. My teardrop is kind of all over the place. It appears sideways as a blindfold and upside down as a hot air balloon. As I refine my drawings I eliminated any oddly positioned teardrops and got down to my best set. My favorite by far is the footprint.
Saturday I visited the Camera Obscura at the Cliff House in San Franscisco. Based on a 15th century design by Leonardo da Vinvi, it projects a 360 degree view of Seal Rock coast onto a table inside.
Today was my first stab at pixel art. I'm pretty sure there is a better method than how I made this in Illustrator.
A poster for Slow Lode's show at The Stork Club. It was my first attempt at stippling and all I knew about it was making a bunch of dots. As expected, my first draft of the poster was pretty rough(bottom-left). Lucky for me this actually fit in with the bands sound but I wanted to give it another try. After I re-drew the artwork, I started stippling a lot more slowly and tried to have some patience. You can see a huge improvement in my work from the first to second draft. This drawing was eventually scanned and used as a poster for Slow Lode.
