Calender Drawings

These are drawings I did for a client who happens to be a fellow student of mine. As you can see, these aren't particularily clean drawings. I've had a lot of stuff to do lately and so I kinda' ended up doing these over a single weekend. There are two others, but I don't feel they need to be included. I sorta wish I drew the bike better on the first image. Actually, there's a lot I wish I would've done better, but it ain't bad for two days, I suppose.

I'm currently working on my third illustration project which involves a Miata. I haven't posted the second assignment because I haven't gotten it back and, also, because I feel the drawing can be done better. I will post all, sooner or later.

My E30's transmission died. I was hoping it'd merely be the oil, but it wasn't. Oh well. At least I accidently drifted the car getting on the freeway in the rain. The good news -depending on how you look at it- is that I'm going to probably end up getting a blue NA Miata with th 1.8 liter engine and Torsen differential. Life will be better when that happens.

Another Post

Wow, another one in the same day. I'm going to be doing 5 two page spreads using the Miata as the "main character" and so I decided it's probably a good idea to practice drawing cars cause' I ain't that great at it though I'm getting better. The project isn't due for a month so I have time to refine my technique or whatever. Drawing the miata, I really miss pushing through a corner in the canyons with neutral slide which the NA seemed to do so well. I don't even know that there was any skill involved on my part though I like to think there was.

There's something about driving that I love that I still can't get through drawing. See, I enjoy drawing because it requires skill and you can always get better and push yourself to do more and I can't wait to see how good I can get in the following year. The thing is, when you're full of rage or sadness or happiness, I find that nothing serves as a better medium for expressing that emotion than driving some roads in a car that can handle it. My crusty E30 325i, as you may have guessed, can't handle any of it. It makes me want to cry when I'm heartbroken and I can't assuage any of my anguish through driving. I need a MIATA!

I can't believe how bad I am with women. BAD! And I really am trying, too. Anyway, here're some doodles.


Since school has started again, I've found that, for whatever reason, I seem to enjoy pressure. I'm probably going to load up on 15 units next semester cause' right now I don't feel pressured enough. If I end up getting another Miata, I think I'll need to befriend a driver of an S2000 or an Impreza and have them tail me all the way to school just so I can feel pressured.

I drew this kinda' fast for Illustration class. I think my shading needs to be cleaner. There was more to this drawing but I got rid of it cause' it looks stupid. I suppose I'll start posting my school assignments here so that a year from now I can look at it and laugh.
