To get my creative juices flowing, I've been listening to Varése Sarabande's 30th Anniversary Celebration: A Chronicle of Great Film Music 2003-2008. You can sample some of the tunes here. When I listen to music at work, it's almost always instrumental--and usually soundtracks. I'm a geek like that.

Medieval Moleskine

Today is the first day of fall. Which has nothing to do with The Dark Ages. But I saw some cool etchings in the BYU Library the other day and had to turn them into medieval cartoon madness.

Kevin had the right address, but there was definitely something strange happening at 1042 West Chestnut.

Crab Cove

I didn't get a chance to work on a Moleskine piece today, so here's a doodle from a different sketchbook. I wouldn't have posted, but I didn't want to ruin Natasha's morning routine*!

*See comment on yesterday's post.

Are You Bored Yet?

Here's some more stuff from my sketchbook w/ digital color added. For those of you getting tired of these Moleskine experiments, I'll try and spice things up with something interesting later in the week.

More stuff from my sketchbook, with a little digital coloring to spruce things up. I think I'm digging this style.

More Moleskinery

Thought this was a pretty cool idea--scanning my own hand with the sketchbook. Got the inspiration from a new site: More to come!

From the Moleskine

Caution: Some art geekery follows.

A spread from my pocket sketchbook. I've been drawing frames and coming up with ways to fill them, without any preliminary pencil lines. I've also attempted to make my pen and ink lines more sketchy. I simply take a trusty Pilot V5 and attack the paper. I realize using a V5 isn't exactly the most artsy way of doing things. I should use my sketching pens or my fountain pen. But I don't. My Pilot is cheaper, I like the way it feels, and I don't have to worry about losing it or having it explode in my pocket. (Yes, I've had fountain pens do that to me. Don't ask why I ever thought to put a fountain pen in my pocket.)

Bernard tried to pay attention in class, but all he could think about was the spelling bee.
