I did some sketching in my little "YOU'RE NEXT" sketchbook from ICON :) Unfortunately, it was not under the best circumstances, as I sketched my grandpa in the hospital bed and my dad in
the waiting room.



It's nice to try to get documentation of things other than photographs.

More sketchbook updates!

Here are some more sketches that I was doing throughout the summer!

Langham pool again :)

Notes during John Mahoney and Yuku Shimizu's lecture

A quick sketch when I was at the hollywood bowl! 

Notes during Todd Oldham's speech. 

I am not sure if I should be posting some of the pictures I've been taking... but I have been posting them on my other blog, bass-ackwards-blog.blogspot.com

Alice Neel

Here are some studies I did of Alice Neel paintings I was fortunate enough to see when I was in Venice beach at the L.A. Louver Gallery: (edit: ICK, i saw this on another computer and noticed that the colors are all purple and stuff. My scanner sucks :( )

I really love Alice Neel. Her paintings have such an organic quality and ease to them that I really admire.

Sorry for the lack of updates... Summer's been pretty unproductive. However, recently i've been super productive! I think ICON inspired me.

That said, I've just spent the past week volunteering at ICON6: Sunny Side Up in Pasadena! It was a great week, I really had a blast meeting all kinds of people and getting inspired by great illustrators. I just wanted to update with some sketches in my sketchbook that i've been doing this summer!

People lounging by the Langham pool :)

these are just some doodles i did during various speeches - I didn't get to hear every one, but i heard some awesome speeches by Wayne White, Craig Yoe, Thomas Blackshear, Yuku Shimizu (sp?) and many others :)
