Some Pages from my Sketchbook

March 25, 2008

These were done in an exhibit of artifacts from the Phoenicians in the Institut du Monde Arabe in Paris. If you should ever go there, please be sure to have a meal in the restaurant – it was wonderful!

These were scribbled in the dark mostly, and don’t always look like what I was drawing, but I’ve grown attached to them.  I didn’t add pen lines to these, but left my original pencil sketches and just added a bit of color.  Luckily, Laura drew the griffin-head pitcher as well, because I’d forgotten the color and made it terra-cotta.  When I saw hers, I realized the error of my ways.

    This series is sort of like a hypnotism show; look at the right hand figure in the 3rd pic: “Your eye lids are getting heavy… you are feeling sleepy….”, and all the others are in a hypnotic coma (normal when you’re a sarcophagus!)

    I am laughing so hard at Claire’s comment!! I miss her!!!! I miss you, too, of course ;D, but, unless you’re drawing fancy boy horses, you don’t make me laugh quite so much as she does. OK, the bulgy eyed guy made me laugh pretty hard once I went back to see what Claire was talking about! As for the color—the color is whatever the Caseyean eye thinks it should be, right? I love your color sense. Mine is much less juicy.

    These a fun, I lke the loose lines and the colors. Gawd, if I was trying to draw in the dark none of my lines would match up; I’d have noses and eyes floating all over the page (fi you could tell what they were LOL)…

    Lovely use of colour and line – I especially like the goggle-eyed fellow too. What a fine time you all had – thank you for sharing with us.
