My buddy Joe Bluhm posted a couple sketches recently on his blog that were inspiring to me, also, looked like a lot of fun. So I had to give it a go as well, using recylced paper that almost looks like a paper bag, lot's of fun to sketch on. I did this Kiefer sketch last night while watching last year's season of 24 with my wife. I sketched it from a picture of him that I cut out of an Entertainment Weekly.
This is a real quick way to get your lights and darks, before you even start, you already have your half tone as a base. All you need to do from there is add lights and darks and a little in between, and before you know it, you'll have a nice effect. Lot's of fun, did I mention it was fun?
Ok, so I haven't been posting much lately, hopefully I will get back on track very soon. As some of you know my wife and I are expecting baby girl number two. We could have our new addition to the Seiler family any day now, so as you can imagine I won't be doing too much until things settle down a bit.
Also, I've been doing a lot of editorial work, so I will have new work to share very soon, unfortunately I have to wait until they have been published before I can post them here. My latest was a piece that I did for the magazine "Reform Judaism", it's an illustration of the president of Iran, I won't give away any of the details, but will hopefully post it very soon!
Take care and have a great Holiday!
