Vidal Sassoon: The Movie

Recommended Reading

One of my favorite things to do is watch documentaries about creative persons–not like, the ones where they dig up all the person’s dirty laundry, but documentaries that focus on the creative contributions and background of a given creative.

The first one I ever caught–by accident–was the “Iconoclasts” episode with Tony Hawk and John Favreau.

Today at the library I walked by Vidal Sassoon the Movie and couldn’t resist grabbing it. 

It was supergood–upbeat without being fawning, informative, and non-tabloidsy.  Recommended.

Dancing Sketchbook Animals (Bonus! Cocker Spaniels!)

Art

I usually don’t draw birds.  Especially ones that dance or do yoga poses.

More random shapeyness and lettercraft (I hesitate to call it calligraphy).

 

*~~BONUS COCKER SPANIELS~~*

Quite possibly the best drawings I’ve made in years.  Dedicated to the memory of Dayna Ahern, whose dog Honey inspired these.

Shapey Animals

Art

Things I like to do: make random shapes, then fill them into make animals/faces. 

Feline-themed:

Kitty and Frenchie edition:

A graphic gryphon (not a random shape)

Shapey Werewolves made while watching Jim Henson’s Creature Shop Challenge, one of television’s finest programs:

Bob Ross Lion is uncharacteristically grouchy.

Hula Kitties and a Bodyguard

Art

Every week I write out my work schedule and put it up so my folks can look at it when they need to.  I drew these kitties to fill in the empty space on a couple of ’em:

Leikitty wears a lei!  My mom’s favorite kitties are the Exotic Shorthairs (you know, like SnoopyBabe!), so my recent kitties have that flava to them.

Shake dat thang, Hula Cat!

And last but not least, I got around to doing a color mockup of Agent Grenera Pālau, a bodyguard from my novel:

 

I thought vitiligo would look good on her.  Don’t think I’ll keep it for her comb though. This also marks the premiere of Genera’s new redesign, based off the American Pit Bull Terrier…yes, I tried to make a parrot alien look like a pit bull.
