I went to Santa Monica Beach today after the last two days being stuck at home a bit sick and coughing. I was feeling better today, thank god! I have to travel to NYC again tomorrow for the weekend. All this moving and traveling is starting to exhaust me =( Hopefully things will simmer down when I get back next week. I’ve been all over the place even in NYC before I moved out to LA. I’m hoping for a sense of feeling more grounded in one place for once. It was really nice going to the beach today and sitting on the sand and painting! I have a little travel watercolor set and a small watercolor sketchbook from Italy. These sketches I do are fairly small and takes less than an hour, but for me it brings me back to that sense of peace again when I create. Happy =)
Flannel wearing lumberjack hipster with boots! I sketched my coworker today because he’s always so stylish and such a character! People in NYC are definitely a lot more polished and stylish here vs. the West Coast where everyone is always dressed down and wearing a t-shirt. I really appreciate New York fashion with its clean lines and polished looks. I’m not a slave to fashion but I really like it when people look put together, it shows me that they took the time to make themselves presentable and want to make a good impression on the world. After all, sometimes you only get to make one good impression– usually that’s what most people remember anyway.
Its a new year and I told myself I would do more fashion illustration sketches. And just more sketching in general everyday! I have missed out a bit last year being in a fashion drawing group because I was so busy with life, grad school, work work in general. But this year I’m going to get more involved! Excited for what this new year may bring =)
I finally got around to coloring my Joker sketch! The original pen sketch got so many likes on my instagram that I decided to color it and offer it as a print, iPhone case, and t-shirt on my Society 6 Profile. To check it out you can go to http://www.society6.com/dianepascual to check out the various products its offered in.
Hello there. It’s been a while. How are you? Haha. I’ve been handing this card out to everyone and their mom here in NY, it seems to grab some attention. This came out of a conversation I had with a friend in San Francisco about how some people are so Grumpy frumpy! Poopie heads just plain suck, play nice and stay in that positive energy! Party on Wayne! Party on Garth!
Its just me and my wacom tablet tonight! Its definitely challenging drawing on a wacom tablet, I wish I had a cinitq! But practice I suppose makes perfect. I usually use the wacom to digitally color my work and draw by hand, its much easier for me! But who knows, I’m still exploring different ways of doing things!
