Stud Muffin....

Last week the ASIFA life drawing classes started and we had a short well muscled man that obviously loved comic books. At one point he overheard us talking about the ComiCon and then told us that the next few poses where from X,Y,Z comic book. It was fun... he looked like a rockabilly wolverine. it was fun. here are some of the drawings that i did from that day. One is from a couple of 2 minute poses, and the other from a 4 minute pose. Enjoy.

After dinner with a friend the other night, we came upon this as we walked on St Mark's. I had to take pictures, but all i had was my phone. A woman came by as i was doing so and kept trying to convince me that the vines were evil.... like nature taking back it's stolen territory is evil? Living in a concrete "jungle" seeing something as raw and powerful as this was awe inspiring. I need to go back with a proper camera and take better pictures. But i figured it's still nice enough to share with you. Enjoy... and may nature always inspire you.

Coraline and all that it entails...

I went to see Coraline in 3D today. Though the 3D part hurt me somewhat (i need to see it again in regular), i walked away with a feeling of loss.... loss that i didn't try harder a couple of years ago to get on that film. And after a weird conversation today with a friend i also realized that i have to stop sitting on my ass. "Nathalia realizes that she needs to stop saying she wants to do things and just do them" is what my Facebook status says. i came home and thought about animating... but honestly my studio space is a mess. through no ones fault but my own and it'd take me all night to clean. So i popped on the movie that really made me want to go into the animation business in the first place and that was Nightmare. I watched it again and stopped and drew a couple of poses. I've had a couple of whispers of ideas running through my head and i will see them emerge to the light of day. I'm exhausted and need to got to bed, but here are some sketches for you to enjoy.

PS: that will be my motto this year... "Stop trying to hit me and hit me!"

Lotus and Koi

Here is a quick color sketch of 2 things that are on my mind right
now. I started painting again this year, so maybe this'll be my next
subject. Later this week you'll see my first painting '09. Enjoy!
