So tomorrow, July 1st, artists from all over the world will be putting pens and pencils to paper together ! Come by the forums to see where the sketching is taking action. Unfortunately Ronnie and I just found out that we will have to work, Pixar calls as we’re in a crunch for a screening … so sadly we won’t be able to join in the group of artists here in San Francisco, but not to worry we’ll try and sketch inbetween storyboard fixes … and...

More Bolhem goodness for you

Amazing work … he gets so much character out of people around him. The first one Bolhem did at SketchCrawl last month, he was telling me how he thought interesting how just making the shape of her feet dark and prominent sells almost automatically her pose and attitude. The other three are from his Paris’ metro sketchbooks, crazy good. 🙂

Wow. What a nice day out saturday was! Ronnie and I met a lot of artists, almost forty brave souls attended. We walked from Fillmore and California all the way to the Palace of fine arts and back, maybe even walked too much … I was sure tired after it, but it was still a lot of fun. Exhaustion is certainly an ingredient of the drawing marathon … 😉 Well, thanks to all of you for coming! It was great to see all your drawings at the meeting back in front of...

His drawings are simply amazing, I can guarantee you will be inspired! He just handed me a stack of sketchbooks yesterday. They are mostly filled with characters sketches from Paris subways. Here is a first taste of...
