Terri

05/27/2013 Providence, RI Coffee Exchange, Wickenden St. Terri sat down next to me and demanded I draw her. I had met her the previous day. She’d sat next to me for hours while I drew and talked to me quite a bit. I don’t want anyone to think of artists drawing in public as unapproachable […]

Pictured: Not a Wizard

TOP: 05/25/2013 Providence, RI Snogi Frozen Yogurt, Atwells Ave. BOTTOM: 05/26/2013 Providence, RI Coffee Exchange, Wickenden St. I probably should have divided this page into two posts. Oh well. The top half of this page is from Snogi over on Atwells Ave. The bottom half is from The Coffee Exchange on the day of Brown […]

Orange haired Tailor

05/25/2013 Providence, RI Food Court, Providence Place Mall I think this was one of the first pages I inked with a Pentel Brush Pens. You can tell I’m still trying to figure out how to use it.   In order to drew the girl with the orange hair I had to look beyond a closer table with […]

Hair

05/25/2013 Providence, RI Coffee Exchange, Wickenden St. I used to hate drawing hair. I hated drawing hair because I sucked at drawing hair. So I started treating hair like ribbons that sprouted out of the top of a person’s head and fell down around them. Then I would go back in and add contour lines, […]

The Dread Captain Cap’n

05/25/2013 Providence, RI Coffee Exchange, Wickenden St. The dude with dreads is a ship’s captain… or, at least, he has a boat. After seeing each other around the Coffee Exchange for months Cap’n came up one day and talked to me. He was very nice. Even invited me out on his boat. Well, sorta. More […]

05/17/2013 Providence, RI Coffee Exchange, Wickenden St. I really like the green girl’s breasts. Got your attention? Good. It would have been easy to just draw them as large. But they weren’t large so much as they were constricted and pushed up by the tight top she was wearing. That’s a subtle difference on paper […]

Planter in DePasquale Square

05/16/2013 Providence, RI DePasquale Square by Venda Ravioli, Atwells Ave. I can draw non figurative work! Well, sorta, I mean, sure, it’s a faux Italian planter covered in figurative reliefs.  But, it’s technically an inanimate object. So, that’s gotta count for something, right?  I drew this late one night as popped collars and stilettos clacked […]

05/14/2013

05/14/2013 Providence, RI Coffee Exchange, Wickenden St. The woman on the left was done without ink. I skipped straight from the under drawing to coloring. I like how this came out; I’ll have to try this more often. Made with: Prismacolor pencils, Pentel 101 Brush Pen, Faber-Castel Pens, Prismacolor and various markers, on Catchet  paper. […]

05/12/2013

05/12/2013 Providence, RI Coffee Exchange, Wickenden St. I don’t draw that many couples. Not out of disinterest, but because it’s hard to draw spontaneous moments of intimacy. Two figures means it takes twice as long to draw. Two figures also means it’s twice as likely that someone will move. Basically, the more people you draw […]
