Three Hundred and Six!

When you start drawing buildings and allow your pen to just go this is sometimes the result. Initially starting with the clock tower the buildings began to take on influence from Indian Culture. I am probably watching too many shows on Indian food as it is a new obsession. The color is mental but that was due to an orange highlighter. I went a bit crazy with it and naturally as soon as the brush hit those areas the orange leached into whatever color I tried to put near if forcing the image to have an unintended warm glow. Enjoy and see you next time.

Three Hundred and Four!

Another doodle started at work and finished at home. These small-scale city/landscapes are great sanity tools. The small details and disorienting angles suck you in and help you clear your head of the small issues currently clogging up your mind. I really tried to make this image confusing once I brought it home, utilizing color and washes to make it a bit harder to decipher which part belongs to where. I enjoy the play on whether it’s an image of a large house or if it’s a city-scape made of multiple buildings. Enjoy and see you next time!

Three Hundred and Three!

Highlighting stuff is such a fascination. It probably falls more to the accent of neon color but either way I love it! This image is far from a finished piece but like I mentioned in the challenge revision, I do not have time to get caught up in one image. I like the combination of structural and abstract, in particular the hive-like shape. Enjoy and see you next time.

Three Hundred and Two!

Doodles that start at work are sometimes exactly what you need to get ideas flowing. They serve as a mindless drawing and once you tune in may develop into something more. I really enjoy the elements that make up this drawing. The combination of pen, highlighter and paint make for an interesting variation. The colors are of course somewhat limited to what was available but even that serves as a great learning point. Please let me know your thoughts. Enjoy and see you next time!

Two Hundred and Ninety One!

Let’s revert back to the tree like imagery once again…. Not a fan but I am trying to just go with the challenge and not edit what I post. Based partly on the view from my back window, which currently comprises of snow mounds 4 feet high and the tops of fences and shrubbery peaking out from behind it. I will say that I was able to integrate some thoughts which always feels good. I love journaling and this is a way for me to integrate that idea into my works. Enjoy and see you next time!

Two Hundred and Ninety!

It was nice to start this piece, because I grabbed a scrap piece of paper which happened to have a few marks already on it. It gave me a place to start that felt a bit different from the last few. I like that the piece moves across the paper and changes a bit along the way. Enjoy and see you next time!

Two Hundred Seventy-Two!

photo 4

This was an image I finished last night. My heads been crazy recently so I decided to dive into a piece and not stop until I felt it was done. I started Friday night with a basic wash on the paper. I had been cleaning my cubicle at work and saw my notes page and thought it was actually very inspiring. It was lists and doodles which I then worked over with white out and highlighted or scratched out the remaining items on the page. I know it was never meant to be anything but it really flipped a switch in my head. It was like documentation but then the need to hide the information. On Friday night I worked on this image for ages just working off the last line I laid down. In the morning I continued going back in with Gesso to hide some items I felt did not work. By Sunday night I was done. I couldn’t see anywhere I needed to work on. I’ve already moved onto the second piece….. Enjoy and see you next time.

Two Hundred Fifty-Two!

image

This would be considered one of those work doodles I start while reviewing voicemails. Granted they evolve from there, but it seems to be a great starting point. Recently I have been obsessed with doodles because I was listening to some news channel which did a segment on “doodling” and how in a recent stufy people who doodle actual remember more details regarding whatever was going on. It always worked for me so I am a firm believer! Enjoy.

Two Hundred Forty-Eight!

image

So I may have just realized that the last few images have all been rabbit related. I swear that was not intentional, I imagine there is some quality I like about them that makes me want to draw them. Regardless this here rabbit is well a bit more “trippy” I suppose than the others. Welcome to my life, one minute I’m right there with the rest of the world, feet firmly planted on the ground and the next… floating away! On that note, I’m drug free, each to there own but I guess I don’t need them. Enjoy

Two Hundred Forty-One

I love this. Who doesn’t like spending Saturday evenings drawing abstract clusters while watching movies and drinking wine. Needless to say I think I needed a quick break from realistic imagery to get myself back in gear. I was messing with a few different shapes that I like to work with regularly as well as some new. I feel like I want to try this again on paper that might actually hold up and take on more mediums. The sharpie in this image was curling the paper after only a few minutes which irks my OCD. Lets just say that my journal is currently under a number of books to flatten out the pages that are warped from the more saturated mediums. Enjoy and see you next time.
