This is an establishing drawing I did for Watergunn Studios. The purpose of this drawing was to show the transport character in action moving a human across a swamp like area. I did this drawing in Macromedia Flash on my laptop in the back seat on a long road trip the day before Thanksgiving.

This is a giant pastel piece I did. I used six 24x36 pages of drawing paper. I had to tape the pages to my wall and stand in a chair as I drew the girl below. This image took a couple (approx 3) days to finish. The main image was done the first day - I had to go back and add subtle changes the following days. This is the largest drawing I have ever done (not including my graffiti).
This is picture of the day I went to pick the image up from the framers.
This another drawing of someone on the bus. Once again this guy had no idea I was drawing him and I had no idea when he was going to get off. That said - the focus was speed, likeness and shading. I was really pleased with this one because it really looks photographically like the guy.
This is a drawing of a lady on the metro bus (public transit). It took about 13-15 mins. I had fun with this one. The biggest challenge was to avoid mistakes because of the rough ride. It seemed the bus had no shocks as I penciled away at this life study. My focus here was to establish realism, volume and to do it all fast - because I had now idea when this lady was going to get off the bus. I eventually showed her the drawing at the end a got a yummy smile from her. HOO HOOOO!
I decided this week to start back drawing with pencil. The change is tremendous. I have been drawing with pen for some months now (as directed by my master John Mahoney). This is a sketch of a little girl that was watching television. I started out with the line then went into the shading. My main focus was to establish realism in a short time period - this took about 15 minutes.

When l got on the bus today there was a women sitting down next to the seat where I always sit in order to have a good view of all the people that I can draw. When I sat down next to her she looked at me (as if I had the nerve to sit in her arena) then got up and sat on the other side of the bus [right across from me]
I got my sketchbook and pen out and began sketching her. She said something in spanish to a lady next to me - the lady looked at my page and looked back at her and said, "si" (yes in spanish). I guess she asked the lady next to me was I drawing her because she immediately got up and went to the back of the bus. By that time it was too late - I had already recorded her likeness. From there I began to decorate the drawing with Jewelry and facial markings...
...I had fun.

This is an image I did of a group of men and women meeting in a church, listening to a speaker. I focused on the transition of light and dark [ the closer the subject is to the camera the darker it's shadows become - the further the lighter] to create the illusion of depth. This images was done from life.

This is a drawing of a model (SARA) at the Pasadena "Castle Green." Fri. Oct. 12, 07 there was a figure drawing session. In this image I focused on my lines to express the features of her face.
This is a sketch done Oct 12,07. My focus lately has been to establish strong likeness in a very short time. Sort of a power speed sketch. This was done on the bus.
