blast from the past

Here's another page from my sketchbook. I'm trying to do the one sketchbook/month thing, which is... difficult...with 120 pages to fill. I figure I can kill some of that with some inking practice--hence, random drawings of random things.

I was seriously into Pokémon when I was younger, though. I spent many a day being anti-social and obsessively playing it on my Gameboy Color. Here's a picture I drew a while back (and then forgot), but I figure it's appropriate for this post. This is a fairly accurate portrait of me in late elementary/junior high school:

If we take a closer look... 

A: I used to spend my whole day on my gameboy. I think I beat Pokémon Yellow/Pikachu edition like..15 times.
B: I had reaaaaaalllly bad skin when I was younger. And I had braces for six years.There's a whole period of my life that is completely undocumented because I refused to be in pictures. I also learned that bangs are an absolute necessity.
C: My standard outfit (year-round) was an oversize hoodie, ill-fitting mom jeans, and ugly sneakers. I boiled in the summer.
D: I had a roller backpack. There are times in your life when you have to weigh health benefits (better posture?) against coolness. Choose coolness.
E: My socks showed, guys. It was not good.

 I'm so glad that time is over.

sketchy wonder woman!

Some Wonder Women! (woman's? wimmins?). I'm trying to do more personal art/get more pencil mileage in, and so far I'm kind of liking late-night art sessions! :)

Also, as a reward for myself for powering through three crazy weeks I went to Swain's and gorged on art supplies. I've been hearing so many good things about Chartpak markers that I ended up buying a couple sets, and I already love 'em! They're notoriously stinky, though...unfortunately no one told me about the slight time-delay before the odor really hits you....
