The Art Institute of San Diego has asked me to host an advanced drawing workshop for it's students and it looks like I'll be doing it May 24th. Don't hold me to that yet. I think it's only open to students but I'm not sure. I know there's a charge for it. I've never done anything like this so I'll make sure to prepare good. It's going to be weird. Hope I draw good that day. I hope it's not like giving a speech in front of class. I hated speech class. I like to teach though, so it should be fine. And like I said, I'll prepare. I've already got a basic game plan. This sketch is related to my next illustration.

Just a sketch for today. I've got an idea for my next illustration in mind and I've just barely begun sketching. Thanks for all the kind words and helpful critiques on my last illustration!

Fagin's Lot

I'm calling it done. My process was less than ideal. I think it could have been more organic and thus faster. I'm estimating this took me five work days from initial sketch to finish. How do I feel about it? It doesn't work like I was hoping. I'm not very happy with my composition. I like the arrangement of elements but the whole shot itself just isn't very interesting to me. I didn't see that in my sketch. Doh! There are elements here and there that work better than the whole to me. What do you think? Time for the next piece ...
