...Like Tears In Rain

I watched Blade Runner again last night and decided to do a few sketches of characters from the film. I also sketched out the composition/lighting of one of the opening shots. There are so many great lighting shots through the whole movie that I could practically draw those all night. Next time, perhaps. The characters are always more difficult for me. I am working on getting the shape of the faces down and trying to stylise them a bit.

Camping Morro Bay

A few photos from a recent camping trip Jess and I made to Morro Bay, which is a bit up north near San Luis Obispo...

Some interesting formations an Morro Rock. Another in my series of strange landscape perspectives (see Solvang pics from a couple years ago).

A night shot from our site...

Warming hands at the fire pit...

Tiny caterpillar/larvae on the rain fly...

Taking it Elsewhere

Well, it has been fun while it lasted. I am hereby giving up writing about my 52 books project in this blog...

...and started writing about it in a different blog! Whew- Bet you didn't see that coming!

After a few weeks of posting my write-ups , it became clear to me that the artwork here is being drowned out and lost between the words of my writing. While they are not entirely unrelated, I don't want to overrun what is essentially an art blog with large amounts of text. This is not to say that writing should not happen here, but the format of this project itself almost demands that it be a seperate entity.

And thus it came to be that on this day I hereby RE-introduced "Project: 52 In 52" at the link below:

Please feel free to check it out. I'll also put a new link over on the side for easy access.

View From Pershing Square

Another lunchtime sketch in Downtown. This one looking at the corner of 5th and Hill Street. Really only wanted to spend a few minutes sketching today, but the building proved to be more complicated in the form than expected, so it took about 20. It all worked out though, I think.

Lunch Sketching

It really seems like forever since I went out on my lunch break and sketched. I went topside at the 7th+Fig center downtown and drew for a few minutes before heading back to the office.

Actual boring buildings:

Actual big dude:
