sketchbook 12/30/08

While drawing the chess pieces, I had Helvetica, the documentary playing and it inspired me to render the names of the chess pieces in this timeless typeface.

sketchbook 12/27/08

Had a Boxing Day dinner at my dad's place with family. Too much good food had the usual effects on everyone and as a result, I caught my brother in-law snoozing and my sister lazing after dinner.

IF: voices

This week's submission for Illustration Friday.

I had three objectives for this drawing. The first being to fulfill the Illustration Friday theme. Second to do a self portrait, because I'm really not good at drawing portraits. (You could see some sketches of self portraits I did in my sketchbook here). Third, to integrate my my pencil drawing with Photoshop rendering techniques. (Not too sure it went smoothly).

sketchbook- 12/23/08

I'm not very good at drawing portraits so I thought I'd practice with my own face. I've been doing one drawing of my face for the last 4 days and not one of them looks like me. It's nice though to see the the different ways I've drawn myself over a four day span.

sketchbook- 12/14/08

A spread from my sketchbook. I really wanted to pack images into this spread.. and perhaps I'll do it for a few more spreads.

1/8 of my bedroom.

Drawn from my bed.
I find whenever I draw with this micron 03 pen, it lends itself to a looser way of drawing. I like the effect that it has on this drawing and also the definitiveness it gives to it.

After years of wearing the same pair of running shoes, each shoe has acquired similar wear characteristics.

IF: balloon(s)

It's been a while since I used watercolour and so I thought it'd be nice to jump back into this medium with this week's IF theme.
