Winter Sketch Dump

Subway sketches and exercises from a sketchbook I just finished out. I keep a variety of pens on me and see what each is capable of, or more accurately, what I'm capable of with them. Hope you enjoy.

Baba Yaga doodles

Been shooting around ideas for a Baba Yaga painting. I knew nothing about her or her story aside from being a witch, Russian and living in the forest in a hut on chicken legs. So before doing any research I started going off that to see what happened, then slowly adding more educated images from looking up her folklore.

I figure posting this will get me to actually follow through with the painting in a somewhat timely fashion.

Also, after reading Sam Bosma's blog and seeing how much prelim exploration he does... I feel so damn lazy for doing just these so far.

Ol' women be quiltin color!

I've been busier than my blog would suggest. Stupid, lying blog.

These are some recently finished paintings for a children's story pitch I've been working on. The first two I showed the finished drawings for a while back and forgot to post the finishes. Well, now I'm fixing that problem:

And here are some even more recent images from the same series.

She likes quiltin.

And there is a quickie I did last week for Derick Gonzalez at The Wall Street Journal on blacklisting job applicants.
Because of a busy month of running around for funerals and social events (even a trip to Montreal that I really should write about, but haven't) I'm a little behind on a couple projects. But stay tuned for more nonsense soon.
