~ War Driving... ~

So this is what I'm having to resort to these days for an internet fix. Even as I type this, I'm up the street pulling posting this blog off of someone else's wireless.

Speaking of war driving:

I remember going on a war driving session with these guys back during 3rd or 4th year at CalArts. Creeping around Valencia one dark and stormy night in a gun-metal grey Astro minivan (I think), laptop in hand and the A-Team soundtrack bumpin through the speakers, looking for any unprotected wireless connections to be had...

I think we ended up talking to Kevin back at Woodglen Apartments through a webcam.

Short scene I've had sitting around for several months. Finally got around to adding color and words:


And another color piece for all you grim reaper fans. Not as dynamic as I'd've liked it to have been:

I love how free your poses and colors feel. All of your drawings have so much movement and interest to them. :)

haha, great stuff man. I love your color sense. It's the real world with just that little twinge of whimsy. It's great that you're an internet pirate, now. It's the American way!

May;


Because she's based after the perfect model, of course - The Mona Lisa 2000 (or rather, the May Anna Lisa). <3


Sara;


Thanks much. I think the movement comes from the fact that I can hardly sit still (or keep my attention span for more than 5 seconds) when drawing/painting.



Austin;


Thanks much man, I've really tried to get the color palette up to par this past year - mostly through negligence and the sudden surge of "Wait! I oughta be working on *that*!" Basically, reliving crunch time for film.
