The Office - Jim and Pam

Yet another couple from the office. In general I definately prefer doing caricatures of individuals. Mostly because of consistancy. The idea of making all subjects equal in degree of exaggeration, likeness, style, and matching scale can be quite frustrating. I think its good practice and force myself to push through it, but they never seem nearly as satisfying as a stand alone piece. Two different pieces of varying qualilty doesnt leave the nagging feeling that an unbalanced piece does. I think Pam needs a bit more work, but here it is for now. Anyways, just my two cents.

Last week the Tabata's organized a fun drawing party at Kunikazu's apartment which was great.Yesterday Tomo and Zengo came to Utsunomiya. We ate some ramen and gyoza, went bowling, played some wii sports, and enjoyed a movie.

Zach Trenholm

Last month, I was lucky enough to be able to trade sketches with Zach Trenholm who used to live and draw in Japan. His work can be seen in Time, the S.F. Chronicle, and many other national publications. I really like his simple and clean style. You can check out more of his great work at http://www.zachtrenholm.com/. Above is my take on him, and below is his take on me.
