Something Stupid Every Day

I post a lot of rough sketches here. All "finished" work is cross-posted to:
» my main blog (art)
» thinking in public (writing)

Other stuff: » @coleott on twitter » inspiration/reblog blog » shop

Didn’t have access to my tablet tonight, so I “finalized” a spare doodle w/ mouse & polygonal lasso tool.

I once made two band posters like this, for Caveman & Headless Horseman.

My favorite poses from tonight’s Sketch Night at Society of Illustrators. Figure drawing still feels new and difficult and like something I should’ve started doing regularly years ago, but I do think I’m making progress.

I’ve been drawing in grayscale a bit recently. I often get so distracted by color that I overlook value, so it’s nice to focus on it sometimes.

drew some cereal mascots today with Heather Penn (her tumblr, her twitter). and Amy Liu (her tumblr, her twitter).

You should see Amy’s honey-barfing Buzz (the honey nut cheerio bee).
