Life Drawing...sort of!

Post-graduation life has been busy and great and full of a lot of changes. I moved home for a bit to save on rent and I've been working full time as an in-house illustrator/designer at a party supply company. I've been learning so much about package and product design. It's unbelievable sometimes riding the train home from work covered in glitter from mocking-up birthday banners; but I'm learning that's the life of an artist sometimes - unbelievable! And fun :-)

Speaking of riding the train home.....that brings me to the topic of this update: life drawing...unofficially. To pass the time on my commute, consisting of two trains and a bus, I people watch/sketch. It's also nice to start and end my day with a bit of pen to paper since I spend a lot of time working digitally during the day.

**And I will readily admit that this post was inspired by another - far more talented and incredible blogger - Peter de Séve, who posted a blog with his drawings from New York's underground HERE and HERE; which I think are my favorite of his posts. If you don't already know who he is, you'll recognize his work when you see it - countless New Yorker covers have featured his art; he's also one of the character designing mastermind behind movies like Kung Fu Panda and the Ice Age series, among many other animations!

Anyway, here are some of my "life drawings" from the past few weeks

Sometimes I get tired of people....
