In the beginning, there was...


This was actually the inaugural sketch of my new sketchbook. I forgot to scan it with the last batch somehow. Just trying to shake the rust off my sketching hand. This drawing was done looking out the window at one of my favorite cafes: Bay Street Coffee in Fremont, CA. Since it was right before the election, the fence across the street was plastered in election posters.

Mental dialogue following the completion of this sketch:
"Hey, organize the values better so your image is legible, yeah?"
"Values? Organization? Whuh?!"

In my defense, it was overcast.

You traveled all the way from FELTON to draw that?

ahhhhh, jokes aren't so cool when the site makes you retype them.

Apparently Livejournal's not feelin' it right now, so you get an aim name I haven't used in months. Congratulations.

Either way, I think my totally sweet Felton reference is more than enough identification.
