Man, beginning of the third week...take it easy Father Time!

So before I got really gross and, for the most part, inappropriate, I did consider a career in Children's Book Illustration, but its a tough place to navigate. Personally, I like to believe all children are minions of evil and shouldn't be given too much credit when it comes to being innocent, but eh, we all have our own ideas on that topic.

Anyway, I'm no longer interested (MAYBE), but I came across an amazing blog for those of you who may still be! Curious Pages explores children's books that straddle the line between safe and controversial; the ones most of us go back to now and have that double take moment... know, like when you first REALLY understood that Spice Girl's song you always sang as a baby.

I felt like I needed to contribute somethingggg

So, I myself enjoy people watching. A lot. These images below are all from my current sketchbook. All of the drawings (individually) are pretty quick direct 45seconds-2min drawings with a ballpoint pen. Yeah I tried to be all fancy and set up lighting for the images, I know I'm retarded. Boobs. Also be kind and text "yele" to 501501 on your cell phones to donate 5 bucks to all those people who are in a crap ton of heartache over in Haiti. They need it. And if your curiouso check out Urban Sketchers (which I am a member of :]) to check out a fund raiser they did using location drawing on a poster to raise awareness.

-P.S. everyone should be reminded the Society of Illustrators student competition deadline is like January 27th so get on it!

Whoo! First post!

I was doing some research on birds for a piece I'm currently working on and came across the work of Andrew Zuckerman. Amazing!

He currently has a book available cataloging just his bird photography, (for those of us who love to keep an interesting library) but all the images are also available on his website!

These photographs are excellent to reference the smallest details of a vast variety of birds!

Another source you all may want to be familiar with if your work references animals a lot is the BBC Wildlife Finder.

Good luck this semester everyone!

Shameless plug: my new blog

new works that i havent posted up yet.

I'm an illustrator but sometimes I just let things out. people ask me 'what does this picture supposed to say?' . Does it always have to say anything? maybe we'll just find out later. When I have an image in my head nowadays, I just paint it. I dont worry about whether if this is gonna look good, or anything like that. So this is what these are mostly about.
Well except the first one and third one.
