PROCESS

Character studies in sketchbook. None of these are meant to be perfect in any way. I like to do loose, quick sketches trying to capture the feel or look of a character. These drawings are more idea based than art based. Finding wardrobes, appearance quirks, etc.

I can’t believe tomorrow is already August, 20th. Where has my summer been? I’m listening to Gil Mantera’s Party Dream right now. “Little synthesizer, you’re my best friend. Little synthesizer your love never ends”. It’s making me think of the only time I went to see them. At the Grog shop in Cleveland. I was so excited. I had heard they did crazy stuff on stage, and put on a REALLY good show. They had no opening bands and we got to the Grog Shop around 9 or 10 PM (I think… it was pretty late is the point I’m trying to make here, we weren’t early to the show) and we waited and waited and waited and waited. I don’t remember around what time we left exactly but it was LATE. They might have not went on til 1 or 2 in the morning if I remember correctly. Either way, I never got to see them. Maybe one day. I would recommend checking them out. I havent’ heard any new material so I’m not sure if it’s good or not but the stuff I own is great.

Long post.
