A little bit of everything

Sometimes I look at what I’ve been sketching for a while, and there’s a thread that holds it together. This isn’t one of those times. So here’s a post of random sketches from the last couple of weeks.
School is closed this week, so it’s lots of time making and building stuff. This is my son, Nishant , making dinosaurs with his favorite building toy, Zoobs. Graphite and watercolor.

Waterbirds at the Monterey Bay Aquarium, from a weekend trip. I love that the tanks at the Aquarium let you see above and below the water. It is quite surreal to watch the waterbirds swim underwater: they seem to fly through it.

Image
My new favorite creature at the aquarium is the giant octopus. How incredibly fluid his movements are and how quickly he changes shape and form as he moves. It is such a challenge to draw things in motion, to capture them in a single image, yet convey that they are ever-moving.

Image
And one last sketch, this time an old sign from the South Bay: Mr. T’s Liquor Locker. Another sign that I can’t seem to dig up too much information about, other than that it’s “from the 60s”. Know more about it? Let me know.
