Downtime

Posted Dec 2008

Guess what movie I watched tonight. Mindlessly drawing pics while watching a movie. What else would a person do when she finally gets some downtime?

It was The Bone Collector. I drew rough ideas of Angelina Jolie and Denzel Washington:

After Eureka

Posted Dec 2008

Still trying to move my old site to this new address. It makes me revisit past posts very often. And I see my old pictures with my new eyes. How high the bar? How many times can I leap higher?

Today I revisited my post of August 3, 2008 - just about a half-year-ago. Yet there's so much growth since then. So I redrew one of the pictures that I had been so pleased with. Because I thought the exaggeration didn't quite keep the likeness.

Here's my new rendition. I think it keeps the likeness and emotion better:

Community Center

Posted Dec 2008

I am so glad that I take photos of the people who I draw, the people who pass through my life. So I can remember them. It's not only the significant others in our lives who can affect us intensely - It could be anyone. Who knows if we say or do something that's taken to heart. If we say or do something that a person acts on, that affects the totality of her life.

Might even....be....the Purpose of My life.

And even on a simpler scale, it's good to remember people who were pleasant. Alive. Just a peaceful, appreciated part of my life. Here are some pictures that I drew at a Long Island Community Center. They've hired me at least 2 years in a row now. And I'd want to remember them when/if they call me back again next year. Since I draw at 3-5 parties each week, the photos help me remember the nice individuals who I appreciate - who keep me able to earn my living pleasantly. Which is, actually, quite monumental. If I couldn't earn a living, I could die.

FAO Schwarz

Posted Dec 2008

Here are a few simple pictures that I drew for FAO Schwarz. That's an amazing Toy Store! I was set up right next to the Giant Piano.
