Sketchbook dump...

My friend Keith and I have recently started giving ourselves weekly sketching projects to keep us motivated to draw. And I tend to draw the same things over and over if I don't give myself a bit of direction. So I was hoping this would help with that as well..I've been posting mine to my facebook account and thought I'd post a few here too. They're just mindless sketchbook doodles.. So don't think you're getting anything of quality. :) This was our first subject.. A Takin.. I did a couple of sketches from photo ref and the quickly veered off into cartoony caricatures..




Then Keith suggested we draw some rhino's. I didn't go as far off into the land of cartoon as I did with the Takin. Just quick little sketches...







Then Keith and I went to Tim Hortons and drew some regulars for a little bit. We only ended up staying for about 10 mins or so because Keith was too into it that day. But here's what I got out of it.. The first page was drawn from memory after I got home..



Our next drawing motivational subject was "evil". We were just going to draw whatever came into our heads when we thought of that word.. Again. I veered off track. As I tend to do. :) So some of these are less evil than they should be...













This one I drew with my daughter Chloe. She made some gestural lines around the page and I made a picture out of it. I think I like it the most:).


And with that I filled the sketchbook. It's been awhile since I've filled a sketchbook. It'll soon be time to figure out next weeks sketching project and start a fresh new sketchbook. Hopefully we can keep this up and I can fill the new one fast. I've got alot of barely started / totally empty sketchbooks that need filling. :)

Yeah I'm back to pencil and paper for a little while now. My cintiq died a couple days ago so I guess I'll be sketching on paper which is probably for the best anyways :P

Hi Jason, I really like your work and hope that this interests you and your readers.

I am attempting to amass a large collection of portraits of Frankenstein's Monster in as many different styles and in as many different media as possible as an ongoing art project. The only stipulation is that the size is 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches (standard artist trading card size) and that each card has name, date, location, title and anything else you care to add on the back.

I welcome cards from both amateur and professional artists.

I will be leaving blank cards with instructions and mailing address in galleries, colleges, art shops, on buses, handing them out in the street and wherever else I can think of.

If you think you can spare the time to produce a little something, please send a portrait to:

A Patchwork Of Flesh
45 Silversea Drive
Westcliff on Sea
Essex
SS0 9XD
United Kingdom

Each card I receive will be uploaded at http://apatchworkofflesh.blogspot.com/ to produce an on-line gallery, I then hope to put on an exhibition of these cards in a gallery.
