This will be a double-update week because last week was a no-update week on account of my having the flu and then having to go out of town.
Last weekend I participated in the 30th Worldwide SketchCrawl in San Francisco. It was the most beautiful spring day you could ever hope to find in the middle of winter. I had hoped to get in a few painted sketches but wound up with a bunch of regular sketches because I wanted to walk around more.

Below: Most of these drawings were done at the airport this weekend. I've been focusing a lot more on gestures and body language this year, as opposed to likenesses.

Or if you would prefer...
Month One of 2011 is going well, as far as resolutions go. Updating this blog weekly is a reasonable and admirable goal, I think. And I have to say it's going a lot better than my resolution to start washing my breakfast bowl right after I'm done eating every morning so that my oatmeal doesn't dry on hard like paper mache.
Above: The woman on the top left page is my friend/coworker, Sabrina, animator extraordinaire. She's decided to join me in my resolution to do a blog post every week. She's putting her work up on her aptly titled Sabrina's Weekly Update.

A few weeks ago I saw a massive increase in hits on my blog, most of which came through Google searches on my name. Curious, I did a little research and apparently there is a character in Mark Wahlberg's new movie, "The Fighter" who has my exact name. While I'm stoked to be getting more traffic, I am not the person this character is based on. She is played by Amy Adams, who doesn't look like me either. This is me:
So if you're here by mistake... glad to have you here. Stay as long as you'd like. Take a look through my sketchbook. However, I'm not the person you were looking for. But welcome!
