Warm-up sketch for the day. I"ve been trying some new things with shapes lately... This is largely because I sit by the talented Scott Gwynn at work and he is obsessed with shapes. It seeps into one's brain. I'm not so fantastic at them, but it's fun to experiment.

Heather and Steve

This is Heather, and her fish purse, Steve. Heather has been one of my best friends since I met her in seventh grade and discovered a mutual love for that great epic, Star Wars (as you can imagine, we were in the minority of middle school girls who could quote Empire Strikes Back and name all the different planets and spaceships... gotta stick together). Among other things, we share a love of beta fish and Gilmore Girls, compulsive cosmetic shopping at Wal-Mart, and a tendency to get lost obsessively in imaginary worlds.

Anyways. Heather is now the queen of Ebay and has a Fahsion Blog to prove it. I thought it would be fun to use has reference. Plus, she has sportingly modeled for quite a number of my illustration projects so I though it about time I do a picture of her.

(Side note: When I'm attempting to draw an expression, I often find myself making that expression. So , yeah... lots of fish face...)

Memory sketch of a girl I saw on TRAX yesterday. Tim Burton tights! Colored hair! Must draw.

And first big snow today (though, in retrospect, non of it really stuck...). This is about how I feel when I have to leave nice comfortable inside for snowy outside:

...But I don't have the puffy coat.

Fanart Friday: Divergent

Tris (or as she came out here... Dystopic Rapunzel):

And her friend Christina:

From today's audiobook, Divergent by Veronica Roth. Doodles occurred. Seems to be inevitable.

I find girl-fighter stories really entertaining... not sure why... I'm a terribly pacifstic person myself (If you've read Divergent- I'm Amity, no question). Can't say I have any desire to pick up a weapon myself. Except maybe a bow and arrow. Cuz those are cool. And once I won the archery contest at girls camp, so I think I have some latent ability.

Bus Stop

I really enjoy riding the bus. I'm not sure I can explain it to you... as I"ll admit it is often not terribly convenient. But I still like it. I always feel semi-adventurous.

The boy next door, from Lola and the Boy Next Door.

That book made me want to go back to San Francisco.
