Holiday Frenzy Mall Sketches!!

Going to the mall is a huge hassle during the holiday season, yes? I agree!! After a few hours of getting my shopping done, I figured the best way to take a break is to take advantage of the gajilliions of people trying to get their holiday shopping done. Naturally, I grabbed a cup of coffee and just sat in a resting area to draw. So many faces to choose from, and you only have about 4-6 seconds to capture what you THINK you see before they walk past you.

Out comes the mini sketchbook (another great reason to carry one around is you dont wanna carry a large letter size sketchbook while you have arms full of shopping bags), and my trusty Micron and away I go.

I think my favourite one is this first one of the lady working at 2nd cup.

Oh what fun it is to draw.

Finally a chance to cafe sketch. love it.

Feels good to draw for myself after a long hiatus. Been so busy lately with animation that I haven't had nearly as much time as I'd like to keep up with this hobby of mine. At first I felt quite rusty but as I loosened up i felt much better and came to realize once again why I love doing this. I have about 3 weeks before I get back into crunch mode, so hopefully i'll have more sketches done by then.

Time Flies Time Out Beijing

So it's been about 3 months since Beijing. Crazy how time flies when you've got piles of work to do, very little sleep, and lots of caffeine. Being in a delirious state can be nice--experience your days in a dream-like state.

Here's December's Time Out Beijing piece. I'm starting to like this 'bland' black outline with no weight on it. Maybe i'll try scratchier, sketchier lines next time. Or maybe not.

only 19 weeks left!
