Some New Yorkers

Now that I spend all day, 5 days a week at a computer drawing, I find that more and more of my personal drawing happens away from a screen. This equals more enjoyment for me but more obstacles to placing work online. This morning I discovered that I could scan files at work into the computer to post so hopefully we'll get more regular posts!

I've always been frustrated to improve my gesture/ observational drawings but lately found the work of Matt Jones, who showed me how much fun it is to use your imagination when sketching! The following are attempts at infusing real people with my own brain juices. It's a lot of fun and a great way to refresh creatively! Try it!

NOTE: Sometimes people are doing such interesting things that you don't actually have to use your imagination. Case in point? Top right guy holding a coffee between his teeth while he texted. New Yorkers sure LOVE their mobiles (remember when we called them mobiles?)
Also, Matt Jones does a great job of pushing his gestures and storytelling!

Thanks for dropping by again! Let me know if you give this a try and come up with fun results!
