incautious media-intake has curious effects on my sketchbook.

for a change, sketches of live animals, rather than live music. from hanging around this weekend at the Music City Futurity, my mother's annual charity horse show.

later august!



helloooo september.



i've been meaning to do a big post about my sketchbooks and sketchbook habits for a while now. this isn't that post, but it's related to the the underlying principle that my sketchbook is basically my brain's external hard drive. i have a smart phone that i'm a little obsessed with, but my sketchbook has always been (and continues to be) my real PDA, day planner, assignment book, etc. etc. it's the one thing that's pretty much guaranteed to be where i am, regardless of how frantic i was when i was packing my purse. i lose track of my sketchbook far and away less often than my wallet or my phone or my car keys.

i never used a calendar or planner much in school, but since i've graduated and started working a hodgepodge of comically-random freelance jobs, i've become much more dependent on actually writing things down in order to keep myself organized and on schedule (for certain values of both). one result is that i've started keeping monthly calendars in my sketchbook-of-the-moment.

a quick sketchbook spread from an in-store performance at Grimey's yesterday (colored in after the fact). i really like this band. their new album, The Disaster, kept me motivated during my mad blind popup quest a few weeks back-- and for those who didn't preorder it off pledgemusic, it was just released on itunes and at bandcamp.com yesterday!

my view wasn't awesome, and i wish i'd been quick enough to catch a sketch of the trombone and maracas, but oh well; that's how on-site sketching goes. =)

last night i went to Dr. Sketchy's Nashville, a monthly event wherein burlesque models (in awesome costumes!) model for figure drawing sessions (in a bar!). it's super fun, and a good opportunity to practice drawing from life (while drinking beer!). this month's theme was 'Spring,' and featured Red Hot Annie down from Chicago. =)
