Markers and Drugs

Like I said, I think I'm figuring out these markers.

Black Stone Cherry

Awesome show at The Great Saltair in Magna, Utah.  Gotta rep for my cousin!

Photos and video on iPhone 4.  If you're not gonna watch both videos below I'd recommend watching the first one.  I LOVED it!

Getting the Hang of This

I think me and my brush pens are starting to get along.

Also, the mail was good to me today.

It's Summer Now!

Hiking the Y and getting some J Dawgs.  Is there any better/more stereotypical way to get a Provo summer started?

p.s.  Photos of the end of the night will be here.
p.p.s. I love taking pictures with my iPhone.

Figure Drawing and Pixie Dust

 Alright sorry guys!  I'm working on a weekly skate update but it's taking me a bit to get it all cut and assembled into something worth watching.  Until then I though I'd keep you up on my latest artistic endeavors (i.e. sketch book experimentation on method).

 Lots of practice simplifying hands while keeping them accurate.

Same with legs and feet and hips.

Then some Tinker Bell and Pixie Dust

Then some Hermione (I loves me some Hermione).

And then some SUPER bored Stake Conference sketches.

All and all I wasn't very pleased with most of my characters that I've done lately (especially those I just posted).  That's what spurred the studies in method.  I really want to tighten drawing and then loosen my style if that makes any sense at all.

New Ward, New Faces

This is one of our counselors.  His kid was SUPER fat.  Also, I love new faces.  I've been in a really backwards place in life recently and I need new people around.

Story Telling

Finals make me incapable of telling stories.  As a result I listen to music and draw what I see.  Does that make sense?  I mean... You know!  Like when you listen to something that totally paints, like, a vivid mental image.  Yeah!  That!

Also, there's a music video coming soon.  Thanks Luc├ís for the iPhone 4 tripod that's getting some mild use!  I'll get it back to you asap. ;)

so it ends

Well I decided that I HATE having hair in my mouth.  What's more, I hate having prickly hairs in my mouth.  It was at that point with my mustache I couldn't bear it any longer.  Here's the before and after.  I know it wasn't very visible but it's all I had.

Still wishing there was more?  Wait for finals to be over and I'll post more.  Until then, let this video that defines "boss" tide you over.  [it's a skate video, that means there's language, you've been warned]

Back To The Basic

It's been a while since I've done any figure studies.  Enjoy.

What Is Love?

I've always loved the story of Ron and Hermione.  Best friends that end up being more in the end.  I've always loved that idea.

I've also love when life deals me some decent cards every now and then.  Today I happened into the mall for some wonderful exploring, talking, and picture taking.
Also... I love Nikes.  This shoe is fantastic.

End Of The Semester

End of an era.

Everyone says this whenever anything big happens. Rephrase that... whenever anything happens. As a matter of fact... let me retract the usage of that phrase, I wanna save it for a real life changing event. Disappointed? Me too. Here's something to make up for it (it's how my American Heritage Professor decided to end the semester):

Still disappointed? Sorry... I got nothin.

Lovely Evening

I was invited to The Parlor on Center Street in Provo to enjoy some absolutely splendid music and company. It started with me sitting alone in my booth and was shortly followed by me having a wonderful evening of conversation with Michael who is semi stranded in Provo.

The music then flowed like milk and honey, following which I met the band (formally, owing as we'd met briefly before) and the new owners of Muse Music. The night was absolutely the perfect break I needed from finals, excepting the fact that I was very much missing some good concert going company.

You can skip ahead as prompted by the annotation if you're too impatient to wait for the goods.

This is Michael, the gentleman with whom I spent the evening chatting about L.A.

At The End Of A Long Day...

.... I like to kick back and appreciate the good things in life.  Unfortunately today didn't have to much of that.  I failed a test (despite having put in twice the time and effort in studying) and realized this is the second paycheck in a row where somebody wants first and last month payment of something.

Good news is, life isn't about that junk.  It's about getting old and appreciating simple things... like dancing.

This WILL be me!

Then I take a moment to laugh at the ridiculous things that alcohol will convince a person to do, and then laugh harder that Provo residents are willing to do those things on the drop of a hat, without alcohol, and without bribes or dares.  This is an odd place in which we live.

I Decended A Dusty Gravel Ridge

..Beneath the Bixby Canyon Bridge.

These two aren't the same.. but this picture is the closest I could find to what I was drawing from.

As a side note, if you haven't read Kerouac, you haven't read.

You Can Help

Drawing 101 had us make a "propaganda style" poster.  Propaganda isn't always a bad thing.

Donate if you can.
