Monologuing


It's the Tonight Show, with Jay Leno!! This actually only took a almost 3 hours, which is fast in Kevin time.

Turkey Break is finally over... I had a to-do list for the week, and I don't think I really got to any of it except that calendar pic up there. At least now I can finally cross it off my--... waaaiiit THIS WASN'T EVEN ON MY TO-DO LIST!? WHAT....... Do you realize how unproductive I feel if I can't check this off my todo list!? Where is my sense of accomplishment?? What work, can I say, has been yielded, without the comfort of poking it grey on my iPhone??? IT'S LIKE I DID NOTHING TODAY.

Oh well, 3 more weeks of school before I completely check out! BRING IT AAHHHN

Happy _________ Day!

Possible blank fill ins:

Belated-Thanksgiving
Black Fri
Birth


For example, happy birthday Christina! (My big sis.) I drew that caricature of her, and while I don't think I really nailed the likeness, or really pushed it as far as I could've, this is way better than anything I could've done like a month ago.

Thanks to...

The Mad Art of Caricature, by Tom Richmond (I guess this would be a good time to plug it...)

It's a great book! Nigh, AMAZING in terms of what you can learn from it for caricature. It taught me exactly what I wish I knew, which was how to recognize features of the face. I'm only half way done with the book but I already highly recommend it - not just for caricature artists, but for those who want to learn how to draw great looking faces.

And no, Tom Richmond didn't pay me to type this up (but if he's reading this right now, I decline the declination of any offer.) The personalization in the book didn't sway my opinion at all.


And that is totally authentic! It's not like I requested he put "a super cool person" as part of my name when I was ordering the book online. That would be absurd. And I am anything BUT absurd! In a manner that Young Justice Dick Grayson would butcher words, I am totally bsurd.

Body of proof "fan" art

I was gonna post a 3D model from my Maya class, but I thought... "nah".


I dunno if I consider this fan art, since I've never seen the show. (It's for my parents.) Maybe I'll call it "funart". Yeah alright sure.
