SKETCHBOOK - "Sunday Sketchin' "

Been a while since I've been out and about with my sketchbook. Decided to try something I haven't done since my childhood days...drawing in church when I'm supposed to be listening! I'm sure the church of my youth would have loved for me to put a dollar in for every offering envelope I drew on the back of! Surprisingly, I found it very easy to absorb all that was going on...the music...the was nice. I even met a couple who I wouldn't have, because they wanted to see my drawing. Turns out the husband was an architect (which means he noticed that my perspective was off, I'm sure).

On the drive home, I passed by the Johnson County Community College, and decided to sketch inside the Nerman Museum of Modern Art. It wasn't ready to open when I got there, so I enjoyed sketching the empty cafe by the museum...also closed.
After making the rounds inside the museum, I stopped on the way out to draw the entrance view...and the top of the head of the lonely information-booth guy. A pleasant afternoon.

Got a new animated GIF to show..."SPACE GATOR" blasting with his laser cannon! Again...I'm animating one of my static sculpted pieces using Photoshop and ImageReady. I had taken pics from various camera angles of the sculpture. In Photoshop, I cut the torso out from multiple photos. After I repositioned and "grafted" them onto the legs, I could make him move a bit. (Check out my labels to the right, if you want to see how I sculpted this guy.) Just wanted to post this before I have to take a break for a few family comin' to town for a visit. Later, Space Cadets!
