Geeks Who Draw!

What I love about art is that there is no right or wrong in it. What's beautiful for someone can be hideous for another and they're both right at the same time. Interpretation is as varied as each individual mind and every one's an expert.

Drawer Geeks! is a website in which a group of professional artists who, by invitation, offer works of art based on a single subject that is posted every two weeks. The artists are professional comic book artists, illustrators, designers, and animators. There are almost no rules or guidelines and artists are free to interpret the subject as they please. As the site states, they can spend 10 hours or 10 seconds on it, its all art! You can check out the site below.

I find the whole concept inspiring and would love to take part in it, but as I said, its by invitation only. In my own way of participating in such an awesome concept, every time a new subject is posted up on the site, I'm going to post my own artistic interpretation of it here. Its a fun exercise and hopefully it'll keep me sharp and inspired.

So the first post by yours truly is below.

Subject: Dragon
A quick sketch to get things started!

Where The Wild Things Are

Sometimes I get accused of not growing up and holding onto my childhood past too much. With all the stress and troubles of being an adult, its no wonder why many of us look to the joys and innocence of when we were young.

I've been following this movie for awhile and saw this trailer tonight and couldn't be more happy and pleased with what I've seen so far. Spike Jonze is the director and I think he's brought a beloved and classic childhood story back into life. I couldn't help but be reminded of happier and simpler times when I saw the trailer. Looking forward to it on October 16, 2009.

View the trailer below.

The first group photos of the complete Orchard Heroes. It took a little whlie to get Lemonman onto the team, but I insisted that I get the whole team introduced by the first volume. I haven't shown them all together so here are two shots of the team in its entirety.

And COOL pose!

Name Tag

I got carried away writing my name on a name tag during a presentation. Granted, I don't remember much about the presentation or the content. But loook! Creepy Sun and Moon!

I find old weathered faces fascinating. The creases, wrinkles and that leathery look on older folks adds a lot of character to where they've been and what they've seen. This was done in pencil on cardstock.
