    Posting Back

    A drawing from my sketchbook dated 8 September 2008. Drawn from a photograph published in National Geographic on Bhutan (if my recollection is correct).

    Graphite drawing on paper processed in Photoshop CS4 (levels adjustment and a bit of sharpening).

    Machine Eggs and the Prince

    Watched Princess Mononoke for maybe the twentieth time yesterday on a wet Saturday afternoon (the arm and head drawings are based on Prince Ashitaka).

    The other drawings are studies for machine eggs (in Japanese, kikai tamago).

    Little crawly things

    Insects are fascinating. Their modular, machine-like bodies always nudge me to think of ways to reinterpret them as in the pen and ink drawing above of an ant's head.

    For more on ants and biodiversity, see the work of one of my science heroes, E.O. Wilson. Dr. Wilson is undoubtably the world's foremost scholar on ants and biology.

    Graphite drawing of my office shoes. Exercise in translating values of black reflective objects onto paper.
