Hey new followers! Thanks for following :) 

It’s been a bit crazy because I just moved to Toronto, and I’m currently living out of a suitcase in my nephew’s bedroom. The first week has been a lot of wandering on foot/streetcar/subway and trying not to fall asleep. 

1) Went on a museum run in the city, sat behind the ROM and explored the park behind the UofT Music Faculty. 

2) I’ve been hanging out with a lot of kids lately. And drawing a lot of pokemon for them. 

3) Still in my space phase, early process of a pattern I want to fully render

4 and 5) Sketches  during brunch at the Prohibition Gastrohouse, where they have the best Mac and Cheese 

I’m still apartment hunting, but I’m starting a Graphic Novel course and attending some Life Drawing next week at OCAD. Stay tuned! 

I started a photography blog! I recently purchased the Bonzart Twin Ampel Lens for fun and travel, and will be documenting things over there.
Little fact, I was actually going to major in photography in art school but didn’t like the curriculum so I switched to illustration since it was a brand new program. I didn’t really draw until 2nd year of college. I had no idea what I was doing, but it worked out pretty well!

This week in sketching! 

1) Some early process work of both Sailor Moon/Kenshin prints.

2) Did you know the word freedom, and the flower associated with it is the Water Willow? I snorted my tea, and drew a Haruka. Don’t worry, I’m working on all the boys- unfortunately, there are no abs. 

3) CIRCUS OUTFITS FROM HELL, this one is on the backburner until I’m less stressed out about frills. Holy crap, Yana-sensei. How do you do it. 

4) I got to see the Game of Thrones exhibition this weekend! It was a delight to see all the Red Keep costumes up close, Margarey and Sansa’s wedding gowns were stunning. I did some sketching while my buddies were doing that 4D Night’s Watch adventure, I skipped out cause 4D is just too much D for me. 

don’t go, it’s a mighty long fall
I have no idea how many times I had the song on repeat, but voila! Kenshin movie poster! Bless ONE OK ROCK, and bless Taka’s vocal range. 
I also adore the entire cast because they are all amazingly talented, I’ve been following Takeru since his poofy hair teenage years. Good on him to land a role like this, Kenshin was one of my childhood staples.

This week in sketching! 

Sat for a real long time at the BPL and inked hair for hours with a few radio shows, good practice for the hand, house sketch from Spanish Banks, late-night experiments with an oil pencil and yellow gouache, an early sketch for a Winter Soldier print. 

I’m still watching way too much Digimon, on Season 2 now! 

This week in sketching! I was introduced to a new izakaya down at Kitsilano, and a relaxing Sunday with some pals at Deep Cove this past weekend. 

Starting up a few things rigorously after I pass my roadtest (eee!) These things include: 30 Day Song Challenge, Modcloth Shopping List, a short comic featuring my 12 year old self and my previously fat adolescent baby brother. 

I’ve been gathering references for the past couple of weeks for the comic, it’ll be set at my Gran’s house in front of Brock Park. I use to run a safety wheel bike gang there.
