Sunday clouds at dusk

From about 7:45pm to 8:20pm this evening. Very enjoyable and lucid session of sketching. Didn't feel like more then 10 min, though it was at least 35min.



These were done Friday morning around 2am, by streetlights.

"The patterns of the scribbled multitude of twigs and the matching gaps of designated light in sequence to the movement of the limbs were as much a song as mine. This was the earth, its trees in their multitude of beauty, twigs to branches to trunks, brimming with voices about to break into speech. I was in a grip greater than my mother's hand, and tears of laughter leaped out like the presences I expected to see.

One presence was here, I knew, as I turned with my face raised, in the trees and sky, and in the earth that held me as I turned. The presence had put all this in place to instruct me about myself and the complications of the love I felt for Him."

-Larry Woiwode as quoted in Ariel's blog post.

phone booth

I'm working on an animated motion graphics short based on the poem Phone Booth by Andrei Voznesensky (which I found in a book of Richard Wilbur poems, he translated it form Russian). Here are a few stills.

The modeling was done, as usual in anim8or, and the rendering in Bryce, both of which incidentally are free.

Sweet Eugene's Sketches

Fairly successful sketches at Sweet Eugene's last night:

These two guys were ideal to sketch, interesting faces, engaged in their own conversation, and at 90 degrees to me. They didn't seem to notice me, but eventually they moved so I guess they did.

These are in my new moleskine sketchbook I got for Christmas.

Just to think, all this came from a lone acorn.

And some photoshop.

waking life and watching movies

These are sketches of the beautifully filmed and then animated characters of Waking Life, one of my favorite movies. I've seen it many times, but I watched it on Fridays night with my friend Chris. Great movie to sketch too. (put together in photoshop, I still never draw everything the same orientation on the page) I also sketched the room:

This is Johns McCully, Mcwhorter, and Deng (on thurs night) trying to get a laptop to play video on the Ranch (ruf house) TV:
