January 2021 is off to a good start. I was able to get a few sketches in, including a couple of Birthday Bots. I'm also trying to play around with doing ink washes, hoping to get better at it, but I'm having to learn a whole new level of patience. I'm definitely going to need to work with better paper than my sketch pads.
To start off, I want to share my latest drawing. Taking a little break from #robots, I thought I would try and make a quick rendering of the—Photoshopped, meme-famous—shot of Bernie Sanders @berniesanders taken by Brendan Smialowski @bsmialowski - photojournalist for Agence France-Press (AFP).Here, I’ve placed Bernie nowhere special—just on another page in my sketchbook.
I also did a couple of Birthday Bots. When we sign office birthday cards, I’ve tried to add a little sketch about the person being celebrated. Since COVID-19 and working from home, I haven’t been able to do that. So I decided to bring it back—virtually.
We also celebrated Diane Seimetz Duncan @dseimetz - Creative Director and one of the principal owners of LAUNCH agency @launchagency I’ve worked with Diane since before they started the agency in 2003 and I continue to be inspired by her.
