2 Fistfuls of Cheeks

I got both volumes of Sean Galloways new sketchbooks- hes one of my favorites, great shapes and colors and everything just looks cool and pop culture-y. 25 bucks each- nice printing job with hard covers- Ill scan in some selected images soon. If you like his drawing and want hard copies of the work Id say support the kid and get one or two of his books- more info can be found in the "More Goods" link section of this blog under Mr. Sean Galloway-

Freedom To Teach Impulse Buy

My Anatomical man came this week and its really cool. Actually, its really big. Was kinda weird and creepy at first, but over the past few days its really grown on me- makes studying anatomy easy- just cause its so much fun to look at it. I hope they keep making more of these.
Theres a couple versions and although I think the flat gray one is more practical cause you can see the masses easier- the colored one, even though a bit distracting is fun to look at- and I realize the benefit of being able to see the seperation from bone to fascia to muscle. Id say just treat yourself and get the colored.

4-17-07 lunch in Novato

Havent painted landscape in a while- kinda lost sight of why I was doing it- but yesterday I realized doing these little simple problem solving exercises really helps solve some of the bigger problems I have throughout the day.
The colors up here in Marin have definitely shifted with the season...goodbye luscious green fields...

Legion of Honor

About a week ago we went and saw this jewelry show at the Legion. I was rather surprised at how much I enjoyed it- there were some fantastic design by the French artists Lalique and Fouqet, and a few others Im forgeting. Really nice classic Art Nouveau . The jewelry itself was amazing as well- old Cartier cigarette cases and clocks. And lots of diamonds. Good show. Recommended.
