Here's a sketch I did with Tria markers of someone I saw on the street 2 days ago, done from memory. I almost prefer to draw from memory than from life. I find when I draw from memory the picture comes out transformed and pretty close to what I felt the person looked like and I'm not hamstrung by working out the anatomy like a math problem, which is how I sometimes approach the technical aspects of drawing. Also, I've been enjoying working with markers and am thinking about the possibilities with comics.
Early tomorrow, Julie, Henry my mom and I are off to Montreal for a few days. I'll be posting from the road. I have a deadline looming so today I'm going to shop for a small portfolio and bring my work with me.
