My Contribution to Drawing Day 2011

This year's Drawing Day occurred on Saturday, June 4, and I was determined to participate. I called off social engagements, locked myself in my room, and stayed off facebook for an entire weekend. Well, for a few hours at least. As a result of this, I am pleased to introduce to you Mr. Nouveau, a very friendly peacock I drew over the course of a few days, first on plain paper, then on my graphics tablet. I don't get to use that thing nearly enough.

My photo reference was taken at my sister's graduation party a few weeks ago at Grounds for Sculpture in Trenton, NJ. I will post some of the pictures from that day soon as well.

About Drawing Day: One day a year, the world stops to remember that joy we had when we first picked up a pencil and created our first piece of art - that's what Drawing Day is all about. The goal for Drawing Day is simple - to create enough drawings to make some noise worldwide for the sake of art.

Thanks for your comment Richard, glad you liked the drawing. I'm going to post a "making of" video to YouTube soon... video editing takes forever though (I'm sure Alex can attest to that), it was about 4 hours of screen recording that I'm speeding up to 5 minutes or so. I saw your link to Beverly's new site, very cool stuff as well!
