Magazines and television.

While vacationing at the beach, my kid sis and I watched a lot of late-night television. Some of the sketches above are of characters from Will & Grace and Sex and the City. And Pretty Woman! Richard Gere is all sorts of fantastic.

You'd think I would have drawn more pictures of sand and surf, but oh well.

And ... back to magazines. I soon became more interested in drawing what I wanted to see, rather than faithfully capturing the models' appearances.

What I should be doing: preparing for classes!

Sketchy sketches.

Due to a filing mishap (documents, not fingernails), I found myself with a tragically stitched finger. (This ranks highly among my Very Strange Reasons to Leave Work.) I have finally recovered from the trauma, and am drawing like someone who draws a lot. This is a good thing.

Also, my sister loaned me a charming fashion magazine. Hence: women who look slightly more like women than men (my most glaring Achilles heel)!
