A tribute to fellow Thanksgiving weekend travelers

Since I spent a lot of time this past weekend in transit, in airports and on the subway, here are some drawings of all the other exhausted people traveling somewhere last weekend!

Mother/Son Snow Reportage!


My mom and I have been planning for our trip to India this winter, and we've gotten all excited about the idea of doing reportage there, so today we went out and decided to do a little reportage at the beginning of a snowstorm here in Colorado.

We started before going to see Madagascar 2 (adorable) and drawing the Christmas lights our neighbors had just put up (on their eagle sculpture in their front yard).


It was only just beginning to snow when we went into the movie, and 2 hours after we came out the cars were covered in 2 or 3 inches of snow. So after clearing off the car and driving home, we decided to head out and do some "drive-by" reportage around the neighborhood.


By the time we got outside, it had actually just stopped snowing, but the sky was still bizarrely light with the clouds. While we were parked in one location two coyotes ran right in front of the car. You don't get that, drawing in Manhattan!

Equal Rights/Anti-Proposition 8 Rally

On Saturday I went down to the gay rights rally down at City Hall. It was so inspiring to see how many people showed up for the event! The whole thing had a very hopeful, and more importantly, very active energy to it. I hope to see more rallies like this in the months to come, especially with Obama getting into office. It was great, too, because the weather was dismal up until around 1:00 when the rally started and then the sun came out and it was a beautiful fall day.

Musician and some more musicians. And a thingy.

First we have an oil painting of a man playing guitar from my painting class the past two weeks.

Next are some more guitarists who were playing outside the subway station in Union Square. For drawing we were supposed to arrange figures in a space, without
any environment, to try and show space.

Finally, there was this exercise where we copy the shapes of an aerial view of a city and turn it into whatever we want. Mine kind of looks like some Seussical aerial city or something.

Masquerade and Family Primates

First we have a new animatic for a commercial advertising a masquerade ball on Halloween at the MET (and the storyboard).

Next is part 1 of my painting final project, which will be 3 paintings of my family as primates. I had fun with the first one, of me as a gibbon, so now here are 2 bike-riding primates in India!
