 N.C. Wyeth
 Beers at the bar.
 Concert at Waterplace Park
Some shmuck.
 Some broad.
 Worktime musings.
 More of that.
 Brain vomit while watching Kick Ass.
 Americano break at Mirasols.
 As a vehicle passenger.
 If Sherlock Holmes were a trainwreck.

Field notes of Manhattan for crazy people.

Decided to hop on a bus sometime around the beginning of June and head to New York for some thinking, viewing, and walking. These are a few pages of whatever was happening in my brain at the time.

Figure Drawing

 I don't think I've ever posted anything from while attending figure drawing. I go to this neat little artist dive in Providence for it (not as often as I should.) I'm not sure what happened to some of the shorter drawings from this particular session, but I have others from some different sessions that I will post in the future. As you will notice, I have a tendency to get distracted. I stay focused while in figure drawing classes, but something about the environment of the space at this place makes me antsy. Two 20 minute drawings are on the bottom, while the top items are mostly just lazily, distracted scribbles of this guy's face. Oh, and a torso with a duck. Did I mention I get distracted?


Finally got around to scanning some more doodles. I should probably say stuff, but I'm not going to. Ciao.

Things and Stuff.

 I have finally decided to start toying with effort and not place all of my images in a horrendously vertical line. Instead I have chosen to place them in a horrendously ineffective hodgepodge. I am pleased. The images in this cluster are from meandering around the RISD Museum.

These doodles are from one of the few 3.5x5.5 softcover Moleskine books I started carrying around relatively recently. I half heartedly purchased a three pack of them about a month ago and have fallen wildly emotional over them. They are surprisingly durable for being jostled around by the likes of me. They are sort of disposable in appearance which I think sort of goes with the theme of making casual sketches in them. I do keep all of my sketchbooks but that atmosphere appeals to me regardless.

I also feel accomplished when I fill one of the books, and because they aren't very big it's a fairly simple thing to do. Silly? Yes. I'm okay with that.

Speaking of purchasing sketchbooks that I don't actually need but enjoy having, I also purchased two watercolor Moleskines. I have tubed watercolors that I seldom use and aren't very good to travel with so I picked up a small, portable watercolor set too. I don't really know what I'm doing with the watercolor but I'm not all too concerned by it. I have proceeded to create some sort of uncomfortable, kitschy illustrations (see incomplete cat cluster.) I do really like the watercolors a lot but it is slightly less accessible than the usual sketchbook stuff while drawing away from home.

Other than that here are some other various things from the softcover Moleskine (minus the character head. That's in a large sketchbook.) The bird sketches are of my mother's African Grey, Duncan. He's an asshole but drawing him while he's preening makes up for it (kind of.)

 The whole entire two people who venture over to my blog from time to time may notice that this is the first time I decided to make words. I might not do this much because it definitely requires much more time than I should be spending on this (often because I tend to be procrastinating doing something while I'm posting.) and because I might not like reading my own words after the fact. We'll see where it goes. Also, pardon the obvious schmutz that must be living on my scanner. I would fix it but it's too far gone. Yar!
