February drawing challenge catch-up

My February drawing challenge ended up, in the end, having no rhyme or reason. I had hoped to sketch every day alongside reading the  Edwards’ book Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain.  But the month got so busy with the usual work & home stuff that it ended up being a practice of sketching here & there on a couple of different apps, messing around with brushes & shading, some freehand some tracing. You can see it’s a hodgepodge of images in various stages.

March came & went without much sketching even though I had a couple of weeks off for vacation. I spent some of that time working on a book for WIC, & the rest of the time was spent outside & on catching up on appointments & seeing family.

The Canción Cannibal Cabaret

Hangin’ out with Juan, Amalia Leticia Ortiz & Kip Austin Hinton—going over the final edits for THE CANCIÓN CANNIBAL CABARET. Happy to be working on this project & can’t wait to see this beautiful book in print.

Amalia Ortiz‘s The Canción Cannibal Cabaret is a collection of post-apocalyptic prose poems and poem songs “cannibalizing” knowledge from before the fall of civilization. In performance, it is a Xicanx punk rock musical—dedicated “To all the revolutionaries…los rasquaches—all those artists who rose from the filthy and un-loved fringes to create their own meaning…”

We’re getting ready to book the fall/spring tour—email Juan Tejeda for more info at editors@aztlanlibrepress.com.
