this is from figure drawing class this week. charcoal on newsprint, for an hour and a half. The whole key was not to sahde the figure, yet to out line all the plan changes and shadows. if you click on the picture you can zoom in and see what i am talking about. by the way this is a crappy phone picture, not one from my digital camera

heres at little thankyou from me to you, for all those who check this stupid little thing i do out, i appreciate it, and your interest is the reason i continue to do it. the responses and feed back make it worth doing, and is a constant driving force behind my art.
this is just a funky picture i took of myself tonight, doctored up and then felt like censoring. don't know why really- just seemed right -n8

a good friend

one of my best friends growing up passed away last week, we were co-captains on our hockey team growing up in oregon. justin was one of those rare indivduals that while always trying to be the center of attention, also lite up the room like a roman candle. he was in a boat while taking a day off in the peace corps working in africa, and was electrocuted, or at least thats what i picked up while trying to search on the net. if you get a chance check out his blog website www.justinbrady.net and click on the videos, he did a mtv cribs inspired one that is just hilarious, he was a great friend and will always be close to my heart, and missed greatly .-n8

another page, the last two first classes of the week for me today... went out to my car acrossed the street from my house and the rear passenger side window was bashed in. lame... then on top of that. the only things i have of value in there are my golf clubs, that werent taken, if they would have looked around they woould have seen the ipod- radio trip thingy, or my checkbook was in the center console, or change in the ashtray, or registration in the glove box... all left alone. now don't get me wrong i'm grateful, it's just lame...thanks... and um oh nate, - welcome to the city...

It's been a while...

Originally uploaded by n8_sfs.
sorry i've been so super busy with school, work and trying to slack when i can, school is great/so much fun... it's a pretty awesome feeling to get to go to school to draw. it pretty much amps me up to get up at 5:20 in the morning, and helps me get through till about 8:30 when i get home. my first class is analysis of form, which is sort of a run of the mill basic drawing class, you know, still lifes, drapery studies, vine charcoal..ugh.. but my teach is so awesome and he definatly makes going to class worth it. the other night we went to his gallery opening, it was very sweet. if you get a chance check out his art at www.davidchoonglee.com, its well worth a look... -n8 gee

Flashback Inspiration...

Originally uploaded by n8_sfs.
sometimes i get inspiration from areas such as common everyday life, my disturbed thought process, my wierd compulsive collection of magazines, a trip to the comic-con, seeing friends art, yet sometimes.. i like to dig into my crappy old sketchbooks, and re draw the charaters the way i would draw them now ( taking into account that i have grown, no matter how minute.. and taking a vain thought process that iam a better artist now) you see i saved just about every drawing i've done since i was around 14 years old... this is one of the pieces that i saw that inspired me to redraw these charaters, i will post the re-vamps. -click the pic for a larger view- i'm not totally sure how old this drawing is, i would probably assume it's about2-4 years old...** online stuff that inspires me, check out the links on the right... Forrest's website and blog, ashleywoods blog, gelatometti, adam hughes, jim lee, oliver coipel, frank cho... gud nite- nait jee
