Here are some drawings that are less focused on technique and more relaxed in my conscious decisions- I'm allowing my emotional instinct to take over a bit more. I think these make for evocative drawings, even if they aren't as well executed..

These are more Illustrative styles, where I'm much more focused on gesture and the characterization of my subject. This is my "comfort zone" of drawing, the style I developed naturally without any hard discipline.

Here we have some portraits..done in a variety of temperments. Some are trying to be disciplined, others I'm more illustrative, and the one of the little girl is copied from a really nice old photograph (I think that one was taken by Lewis Carroll, but not sure- sorry, dead person)..

Figure Studies

Here are some figure drawing studies I've done, which are focused on implementing traditional techniques of line and value. Successful or not, with these I was trying VERY HARD to be disciplined and conscious in where I put my lines and values, instead of just having some kind of eyes-partially-unfocused/intuitive emotional spew on the paper. Wow, that's like a metaphor of my life, maaaaan

Bedlam: Victorian Bloodbath

Bedlam was a great event that used to happen in an old warehouse in downtown LA on Tuesday nights. Up to 7 models would pose at a time in a given theme, with a dj and a bar (of sorts), and anywhere from 50-200 artists would assemble to draw them. It was underground, burlesque, and full of inspiring people.
