I spent last night working on Christmas cards for work. Here's the ones I got finished.

While in the Heights yesterday, I did this quick sketch of a bird. Avian anatomy is so hard since the feathers hide most of the limbs and joints, but its fun to try and work it out.
While at the MSquared Gallery it was suggested that my bird looked like some kind of weird baby bird. That discussion led to the below:
The idea that the baby bird has feathered wings, and may be capable of flight, but isn't really ready for it. The cross came out of the pose.
Another cloud sketch. We had an awsome front come through a week or so ago. The clouds were building all around the town that day, and in the evening the lightning started flashing. At first it was all cloud lightning, which really showed of the forms.
This year has just been a sky year in my opinion. Last night was another beautiful sunset.

P is for pyramid. Here is a sketch of a crepe myrtle tree I saw on the street the other day. I started imagining triangles for the basic form. Here I have tried to incorporate the building in the background as well.

Thinking back again to art class, and maybe "How to Draw the Marvel Way", we were taught to build up figures from simpler forms. Well I've decided to explore the forms. Going back to the cubists a bit, I wanted to project the different views of the figure onto the forms. Extra forms are added to increase the number of views.
