Sketchings - Secret Dolphins

This is a much older page from the same sketchbook as in my previous post. Some of what you see here is iffy practice in isometric perspective.

One of the dirty little secrets contained in my sketchbooks is that, unfortunately, I still have a serious dolphin-drawing habit lingering on from my childhood. Shh, don't tell anyone.

Today's Sketchings

Well, it's been another long stretch of silence on my poor blog. By the end of this month or early in August, if all goes well, I hope to be launching my new illustration series that's been in development for many months now. In the meantime, I'll be updating more frequently with my least favorite thing in the world to share: raw sketchbook pages. Ick.

Sketchbook 7.18.12

This one is from today. It's a very typical example of what most of my sketchbook pages look like - loosely related thoughts scratched out between stretches of more focused work on other projects. I've always preferred to only share work that's more developed and refined, both technically and conceptually. Now that I've been away from college for some time, I realize that I'm not receiving the kind of critical feedback in the early stages of ideas that can be quite helpful. So I suppose it isn't a completely terrible idea to share some uncensored sketches here...but it still makes me cringe.

Dinosaurs and weather are no strangers to my sketchbooks, but Sputnik suddenly seems to be making a lot of appearances. Interesting.
