I don't know, you tell me.

Maybe it's a sirrush. Maybe I'm just a big nerd.

the science of 8 limbs

On Tuesday I attended a free screening of Ong Bak 2 at the dashing Somerville Theater.

Little did I know I would discover a newfound love of martial arts movies. Not that I didn't like them before, but it's almost as if I wasn't ready for them. I cite animation as my major influence in drawing and you really can't get more animated than the choreographic tangle of limbs and flying fists showcased in these types of movies. The fights are both elegant and brutal, humorous and cringeworthy. Granted, another great source to look at for pose and gesture is ballet. However, I find ballet sorely lacking in rooftop chases, rope darts, and stuntwork involving elephants. I'm picky like that.

Hungry for a knuckle sandwich.

Sweep and recover.

Thumbnails done on the T.

Um, this one wasn't in the movie.

Quick sketch before the workday pulls me into the void. I need to get my hands on some Legos again.

In the meantime, I'll continue to haunt The Brothers Brick.

dive dive

Thoroughly impractical and purely ornamental dive suit sketch.

I love how some of the early diving suits seemed to be fashioned more from suit of armor aesthetics than scientific ones. I guess that's why steampunk is so visually pleasing.

Quick little sketch of atomic robo while I wait for my coffee to kick in this morning.

Pardon the neglect that has fallen upon the blog. I feel like I forgot to feed the goldfish or somethin'. I'm working away on making things for the new website, so it won't be long now! Eventually, I'll be switching to a new blog there, leaving this one for digiarcheologists to find in the year 3020. 

In the meantime, please don't go belly up on me.
