2 1/2 Months Later And 3 Beers In....

So... It's been a while hasn't it. What have I been doing the past two months you may ask? Well, the animation project I was working on has been postponed temporarily. I should be able to get back to work on that pending the filming of the last couple scenes for this music video. So while that is on hiatus, I have been splitting my time between work, doing tutorials on, doodling in my sketchbook, drinking tea, watching Star Trek TNG and playing Black Ops 2. I'm certainly not proud of some of the decisions I've made over the past two months, but I'm hoping the shame of the hours logged in on XBox Live are behind me. I intend to spend more time at my desk or in my sketchbook, rather than on the couch or on Reddit. 

So that brings me to the whole reason for this post! This week marks the first solid productive drawing week in two months. I started the week off right by attending Draw Mania! I've mentioned Draw Mania! a couple times before on my blog. It's basically a loose figure drawing workshop in the backroom of a tiki bar in East Village. Then I capped the week with an awesome new drawing experience, NYC Comic Jam. NYC Comic Jam is a cool little event where comics artists of all levels get together and create comics together feeding off each other's creativity. I had a lot of fun and got the chance to meet and hang out with some really cool people. The spirit of the event is collaborative and each month seems to build off the previous month and so on. Unfortunately, I didn't take any pics of my own drawings from the event, but you can check out this cool little sketch one of the other artists drew of the whole group on the group creator's twitter account. I'm the one in the back with the curly hair.

Well, I'm betting everyone has stopped reading by now. So without further ado, here are a couple sketches, the reason anyone ever looks at this blog to begin with.

A couple figure sketches from Draw Mania!

Below is a little preview of my Holiday Card for 2012 for those who haven't seen it yet. I'll be posting the final version soon, once I finally mail my sister's Christmas present... sorry Erica :/

Rough sketches of John and I for the holiday card.
