Headquarters and Portfolios of Mr. Noodle

here are my first sketches of gilby

Alicia says that “I ain’t gots no money” blog posts are stupid and boring. You know, I think I might agree with her. I’ll try not to write one again. Sorry.

Maybe I’ll start writing about politics.

Hey! Hey! I finally did some sketches of Gilby. I had been meaning to for a while but hadn’t got around to it. Drawing your baby is a kick. Getting baby proportions correct is a challenging exercise. That dude’s got a huge head in relation to his body! He doesn’t hold still for very long. I waited for him to fall asleep for these sketches.

I can’t stop here. I must draw hundreds of sketches of the G Noodle.

I have decided that constantly practicing and improving my drawing skills is currently my number one pursuit. Drawing is the most important thing I can be doing creatively right now. Screw web design, video production, graphic design, and novel writing. One could be satisfactory at those endeavors and still be half-assing their output. A strong drawing muscle can’t be denied. I’m going to stop worrying about trying to be good at those other things and focus on trying to be great at drawing.

I need to be filling up sketch books with drawings.

A really great drummer or guitar player has to keep practicing to keep their chops up right?
Drawing is my instrument (or would a pencil be my instrument?) and I need some practice!

I’m going to totally go back to the life drawing sessions Monday nights at Hipbone Studio as soon as I ain’t so broke!
