Digital Sketch

I don’t do much that I’d label a digital drawing but this is an experiment with the Brushes app. This one I did on my iPhone.

Urban Bison

Bison a sketch by husdant on Flickr.

Some quick sketches of bison I made on my lunch break. It was too nice a day not to go outside.

I’m counting this one as an urban sketch because these bison live at an office park on the edge of town. Close enough.

Saturday morning on campus

The day started out sunny and mild but by the time we left the house it was gray and a damp breeze was picking up. We stopped to do one quick sketch outside before spending the rest of our expedition in the natural history museum.  I sketched the facade of the engineering building.

More Little Bastard sketches…

I was playing with ways to automate converting scans to reasonable web images. These are the results of that effort.

They’re fairly old and were done over the course of a few years. Mostly they represent a different time in my life and in my approach to drawing.

Small Moleskine 1

I have way too many sketchbooks going. I carry a couple-three in my coat pocket (during the winter). These are from a small Moleskine sketchbook (cardstock).

Little Bastards

I have a bunch of these. They’re drawings from an old sketchbook–mostly made in coffee shops I think. They were (and still are) sketches and ideas for assemblages.

I’ll post more as the mood takes me.

They assume that, because it has a warm glow, it is a devine presence–but it’s just a vacuum tube.
