August 22nd

Well, I went to Philz for coffee again... Today I focused on getting the whole figure into frame so that I can use some of my drawings to pass the portfolio review this fall.  Fingers crossed. It didn't help though that when I walked in and sat down John Clapp was sitting right behind me.  I kind of felt obligated to do better and push myself now that a teacher was there.  Anyways my Philz friend Luis challenged me today with another two still lives; the bowl and cup were first and then he just HAD to give me the bicycle challenge.  It took more concentration from me because drawing bikes have always given me a hard time; but, whadya gonna do.
Some people waiting in line at Philz and underneath them are people lounging out in front of the library.

The bicycle challenge from Luis.

I got lucky and caught some kids playing volleyball out on tower lawn while I was walking back home, I just HAD to stop and draw them.

Coffee Break

Here are a couple of still life's from Philz Coffee in downtown San Jose.  My friend Luis helped me out by pointing them out to me :), thanks Luis!  Each one of these took 30 min to complete.

forgot one...

one more sketch on my san diego trip for my sister going to SDSU.

A little behind...

So I haven't been keeping up lately with my sketches. Bad on my part. But, the ones that I have done since my last post are here now.
Some sketches of my favorite characters from Law and Order: SVU on the the left. On the right are some sketches of random things on a car ride.
These are from a trip down to San Diego my brother and sister took.  Some sketches of people on the beach and some car ride sketches to pass the time on I-5 (that road is torture :/ )
