Life Sketches


Most of them were done at a coffee shop by UC Berkeley. 
I just remembered I might have done some of these there with Austin, or maybe even Hwang. The others were done while hanging out with Shiyoon at the Glendale Galleria and at SFO while waiting by myself to board a flight to Japan. 

They're probably a bit too much on the realistic side, but I felt like these were the best of what I have in my current sketchbook so far. I guess I still haven't quite figured out what direction I really want to go in with this type of drawing yet, but I think it's good thing to get out there and draw the people and places around you, even if the drawings don't turn out amazing.

Well, I got my cafe sketching post out of the way now for what it's worth. I'm hoping to post some more finished stuff as things move forward here. I was just going through my sketchbook tonight in order to scan in some rough drawings that I'm planning to develop further and I came across these life sketches, so I decided to post them now.

If all goes well I'll post the other stuff I'm working on a little later.

I love the girl on the top page. Does she live here in Berkeley? Yeeow!
I need to put up some classic cafe sketches instead of drawings of other peoples' characters. Sweet stuff man, I'm so glad you have a blog so I don't have to pester you about looking through your sketchbook!

Thanks for the comments everyone. I'm hoping to get more simplified and caricatured with this type of drawing in the future.

It was fun drawing with you guys, Austin and Shiyoon, we should do it more often.

Awesome, these are great man, makes me want to put up some sketches. I agree with austin, it's nice to see your stuff with out having to bug you for it. Looks good man.

Hwang - Yeah? Thanks it's kind of fun so far.

Nate - Thanks man, It's somehow easier for me to show stuff this way because I can edit what I want to show. I'm looking forward to those new sketches you post.
