Copy of an old National Geographic cover.

Found this drawing I did some time ago and decided to touch it up a bit. It's based on the cover of the October 1998 cover of National Geographic magazine, which always has good stuff. The story was about the growing human population of the planet and issues related to migration.

Brick study.

My friend James says it looks kind of like meat. Ironic considering my dietary habits over the last year or so.

Today Battlestar Galactica ends.

One of the best Sci-fi dramas I think I've ever seen. Very topical and very relevant.

"So say we all!!!"

Hand studies in pen.

I'm trying to draw more hands and feet. Also trying to get better at drawing in pen.

Not directly related to my artwork but...

As anyone who knows me well can tell you one of the issues I'm really passionate about it raising awareness of the ongoing genocide in Darfur.

Well the international criminal court has just issued an arrest warrant for the president of Sudan. This is potentially a huge step towards ending this crime against humanity. Read more about it here.

Zoo trip.

I had a productive sketching trip to the zoo this weekend.

Truth be told, as I delve deeper into Vegetarian/vegan thinking I'm having more and more mixed feelings about zoos. Animal shows like the circus I totally disagree with, but I really feel like zoo's do some good. Yet you can argue that they exploit their residents. Anyway, got some thinking to do.
