When I Grow Up, I Wanna be Famous...

I've been doing a lot of drawing lately. I've recently was given a really nice brush pen and it has inspired me to get into my sketchbook more often. It is taking a little to get used to, but I think I'm starting to see some really nice results.

Today I'm bringing you something else. As you may have noticed, these are not done with a brush pen. These are done by an 9(?) year old. These are from a sketchbook of mine from elementary school. I can't take responsibility for the compositions. They've been lifted straight from a pack of Fleer Ultra cards. I recently found this sketchbook and thought it best to share it with the world because of their great significance to me. This is how I got into art. These are the first drawings that I did and really cared about. I've got a ton of these. I'll probably post another few later. Let me know if you like them. Maybe I'll publish the whole book.

And oh yeah, I'll post some of those brush pen drawings soon, too.

Random Works on Paper

A lot of things have been going on, lately. I began my final year of grad school in SVA's MFA in Illustration as Visual Essay two weeks ago. Later there will be a post outlining the thesis that will be dominating my life for the months to come. Also, I been working on building a website for a lighting designer that work on television, fashion, and documentary shows, and also on other events and opening. On top of that, this weekend I ran a race called Reach the Beach in New Hampshire. It was a 208 mile relay, beginning in the mountains and ending at the Atlantic Ocean. It was really a beautiful run. An my team managed to take home a third over all finish (out of 355), second in our division.
These are just some random sketches that have happened over these past few weeks, some related to those events, others, not. Once the website is complete I'll post the link for everyone to check out.

Mr September

Apparently, this is my month of stardom. I've been featured as the Profile of the Month on the Front Runners New York website. Check it out by clicking here.

This comes after being shown running on the History Channel's show EVOLVE, last week. I've also just gotten word that I will be shown again on the series. This past episode was about the evolution of skin and how the human's skin allows humans to be more efficient at running than other creatures. I will also be appearing in a few weeks (still awaiting a date, check back soon) on Speed. So if you missed the last one, here's another chance. Don't miss out!
