Now that my collegiate career is finally over, I'm taking advantage of the down time to work on sketchbook paintings and such. My gawd, do I need practice. It's jarring just how stunted my traditional skills are since I've been focusing on digital skill development; but at the same time, it's good to get back in the swing of things.

Went with Tony, Derek, Charlene, Jamie and a few others down to San Juan Bautista to chill and paint. Here are a couple of the images that came out... decent.

I have a habit of acquiring numerous sketchbooks before I fill up the current ones that I already have. As a result, I have a lot of started-sketchbooks, but few finished-sketchbooks. One of the books I dug out to use for drawing/painting down in San Juan Bautista happened to be a sketchbook I started using for Barron Storey's 'Conceptual Illustration' class. Heh. I found one of the early collage assignments we did in his class...

Anywhoo, that's all for now. Will be posting a lot more frequently now that I have the time. Stay tuned!!!

That was fun! I'm down, any time!

I used to have that problem with sketchbooks but I started forcing myself to finish a little over a year ago. I seriously need to finish up my current one... I'm still on my Paris sketchbook. o_0 Just 5 more pages to go.

in that last sketch, is that Alex in the middle of the one on the right?
