sketches

Water Color warm ups

Some warm up sketches from this week.

I recently learned that Alfie Date passed away. He was a 110 year old guy who knitted awesome sweaters for penguins who had gotten their feathers ruined in an oil spill. So I wanted to draw one of the penguins wearing one of his sweaters.

I also drew the guys from AAAHH! Real Monsters! Anyone else remember that show?

Sideshow freak banners FMP

As I have said before, my final major project is about fake sideshow freaks. Here are a couple of sketches for the banners that are supposed to hang on the sides of the display. I wanted them to be really tall, so I printed them out to be a bit taller than 2 meters each. They looked really good being huge and I am actually kind of pleased with how they look now, so I might not do to many changes to them.

I am currently preparing to go home for Easter vacation. But being that I have so much work to do for the Final Major Project and other projects, I kind of have a feeling that it will be more work than fun and relaxing. Looking forward to get home anyway though 🙂

Antwerp trip

I was in Antwerp with my course a couple of weeks ago. Antwerp was a great place to be, and it was just the break I needed from university. I never really manage to do much drawing on these sort of trips. I guess it is because there is just so much to see and do when you are in a new place for just a few days, that sketching kind of gets forgotten…

Top 5 things I didn’t like about my Antwerp trip.

1. No sleep because of snoring roommate.

2. To short time there.

3. Really difficult to find ATMs.

4. Don’t remember the name of it, but there was one beer that tasted awful. Like a mix between fish and metal…

5. Difficult to read the menus in restaurants.

 

If I get the chance, I will definitely go back there.
