selected drawings from the sketchbooks because i feel slightly bad for the lack of updates, but being off the internet feels good. lately, i’ve only been using it for the radio. i’m also very bad at piecing together bigger-than-the-scanner drawings, sorry.
Trying to work out my feelings in a…positive way.
Millefeuiles, ink wash and watercolor on paper, 6 7/8”x10 3/4”
typically, when i see the name “Wayne Thiebaud”, i expect an overflow of candy-colored rainbows. his sugary quirkiness shines through even in monochrome. i swear to god, i get cravings after i browse through his art book.
The Islands, pre-1991, graphite and ink on paper
i admire the simplicity and fluidity of his drawings.
Can you appreciate that this is an animated drawing of someone drawing and it’s fucking perfect.
watching people draw is always mesmerizing.
studio space out of control with hair and charcoal
and tears of failures! i feel like my sinuses are turning black (never snort charcoal powder, hurrr…). follow the link for more musing and ranting.
proof that i still draw for fun despite neglecting my sketchbook blog. trust me, the actual sketch looks better than this artsy-fartsy-instagram-wannabe image. also, those flowers with the hanya mask aren’t cherry blossoms. what’s your guess?
