Some Holiday Punch

A belated happy holidays! To say that these past few weeks have been packed is an understatement. My family has been visiting, which has been fun, although I wish I'd had more time to draw. I snuck a little in, of other tourists. So here you are: happy holidays.

One year ago

We worked it out that I met Enrico just about a year ago, in New York City. These are some photos from that day--Sketchcrawling in the West Village. I met so many great people there, and saw so much cool stuff....! It was a very fun time; I think about New York often.

Sorry for the lack of posts lately, it's been a whirlwind of activity, and I've been stealing each free moment to record Jen's recent trip in my sketchbook. Joann Sfar's seemingly freewheeling process has been a big influence on that.

SF Moma

I guess none of these drawings suggest it, but we went to the SF Moma after tromping through north beach and union square. I kinda wish I had drawn more, looking at these now, but oh well. The day ended, as it began, with coffee.

The Thanksgiving Day Weekend

I'm a little busy with stuff these days, but here are some drawings from the thanksgiving day weekend, where Ric, Talent, Jenny and I went down to the Farmer's Market at the Ferry Building to have some breakfast and do some drawing. Maybe I'll get a SF Moma post ready for tomorrow, hm?

It was a big drawing day, although it seemed like we really didn't do much. We started with some coffee at Sugarlump, a walk to the Castro for the The San Francisco Silent Film Festival's presentation of the Silly Symphonies, and a race out to the Inner Richmond for a Burmese dinner and a beer. We trolled the fabulous Green Apple Bookstore, and a bar full of Santa Clauses and a Russ Meyer movie later, bought some candy for the ride home, and endured some repugnant BART riders; some arrogant yuppies, an intense guitarist, and a wiry, lean, excercising machine wearing fur, buckles and two inches of boots. Quite the day!

*note that the first four pages below were drawn in the dark--and the first and second pages basically without looking!

Wow! Here they are; thanks Grant! Anyone wanna wager any guesses? One of them is Nicki shooting my Energizer Bunny in the face. Another, funnily enough, Jenny thought was Communism.

This, our first American Thanksgiving, was spent with Grant Alexander, where we enjoyed the company of his many friends, lovely family, and much much food.

We played an awesome (but complicated) game of pictionary, boys versus girls. I lost on "FACE", but won on "SCUBA". Jen won on "BLOWHOLE" "BALANCE" "SMOKING SECTION", and the clincher, "CHRISTMAS TREE". Can you figure out the clue in the picture?

Afterwards, during pumpkin pie, I took a look at some of Grant's artwork which was, unsurprisingly, amazing. What a great long weekend it's been! How was yours?
