Sequential Exercise

A week or two ago in class we were given 50 minutes to create a sequential image based on a list of opposites we could choose from...for example: red to green, up to down, square to round, small to big, etc. I chose to do a sequence from small to big. I think I spent 40 minutes thinking and thumb nailing and only 5 or 10 minutes actually drawing. Here is what I came up with:

The first page
The second and third pages.

A close up of the second page.

Ta Daaa!!

The end.

Lots and Lots of sketches.

Hi Blog World.
Yes, I'm still alive.
If I have been silent,
it is because I am working...

This is just a sample of what I've been doing.

Hamburger Flashlight

"I dreamed I had a hamburger shaped flashlight."
In my dream, I was walking at dusk down Main Street with my Mom. Sitting in the gutter was a plastic flashlight shaped like a hamburger. I picked it up and turned it on. Mom thought the flashlight was stupid. I bet it belongs to the Hamburglar.

Isn't she so cute!!

Dear Megan and Doug,

Last night I dreamed I pushed Meg. She caught herself before she actually fell. But your baby didn't like being jostled around, and she was feeling cramped inside mommy's tummy, so she angerly poked her head out of Meg's belly button to find out what was happening. That is one little princess I'm going to keep my distance from! Don't worry, all newborns are ugly. She will grow out of it. I think she looks like Doug. Sorry I pushed you Meg.

Shhh! Don't Wake Grandpa.

My grandpa is in the hospital recovering from surgery. I went to visit him today. He was feeling a little better and started telling me all these stories about his life. He told about how when he was 13 years old, he and his best friend would write notes for each other to give to the teachers and they would cut class. They would go caddy at the golf course to earn money so they could go to the movies. Grandpa also talked about growing up during the depression and eating anything they could find...raccoon, rabbit, turtles, etc. He talked about the german shepherd he own when he was a boy. I love Grandpa's stories. All that talking wore Grandpa out and he fell asleep mid sentence. I took the opportunity to sketch him. ;)
