Watch while you work

I've been watching:


while I draw. Whenever I watch it, I'm always amazed at how beautiful and diverse our planet really is...they show some really stunning things on camera, but this guy was definitely my favorite.

As nice as it is to just sit and draw, after a few a few hours I start to feel ...heavier. I feel like all my weight is sinking down and pulling me into the couch.


and I'm sure eventually...



I feel this is a legitimate concern. Art is such a sedentary activity.

Also watched Where the Wild Things Are this week. It had nice cinematography. I liked the look. I liked the kid. Yup.

Did you know that sirens are composed of women and birds (not women and aquatic...creatures)? Ha I didn't

zoo drawing and such

Finally got to go to the LA Zoo for some drawing. Thank goodness it was the day before the summer heat really hit, the animals were still pretty active. Didn't get the ibexes, though C:

Up!



Go watch Up!

I thought it was sweet and lovely and it had me crying in the first 15 minutes. I do think I like the parts more than the sum of the parts, though. There were some little things that bugged me (the "dogfighters" really made the whole thing very surreal), but it was a very enjoyable experience.

at least according to the free translation machines online.
...c'est un buttprint!

yes, this is the visual representation of all the time I'm spending (and will spend, alas) sitting on the couch, working on my portfolio. Long hours in front of the computer + little activity + tendency to snack= well, not good.

yup.



...then I started playing around with the brushes in tvpaint. I am greatly amused by the "hair" brush (hehe. hairbrush.) Might try painting something in there.

Work Doodles

Having some fun during downtime...I can use a nice big tablet here so I can't resist




the guys on Ni Hao have a thing for ibexes.

...it's better not to ask.


I frequently fall victim to the mid-day energy slump. I don't think I'm used to getting up so early.
