Pink Nightmare

August 16, 2011

Here are a few more of my timid attempts at using color. I rigged a small watercolor palette that is portable and fairly easy to use with the idea being that I could do watercolor sketches on the go. Of course I did all three of these in the comfort of my own home. So I guess I am still working up the guts to do those watercolors on the go.

The problem is that I spend a lot of time on, which showcases the work of some pretty dang amazing sketchbook artists from all over the world. Seeing all these new masterpieces pop up everyday is both inspiring and intimidating.


Seven Minutes in Heaven

August 7, 2011

I did these three drawings at Space 55, an awesome little theatre in downtown Phoenix that puts on all kinds of fun shows. Every year they do a series of shows called “Seven Minutes in Heaven” where they let each performer go up on stage and do whatever they want for seven minutes. There are pretty much no rules, and the acts are not pre-screened, so you never know what you’re going to see. Music, improv, and puppetry are pretty common. But there have also been food eating contests, blind poets, and magicians (clothed and unclothed).

This show is a great place to practice quick sketches, because just like the performers, you only have seven minutes.
