Little Luna Sketches!

After a fantastic night of drinking and drawing with Little Luna, we’ve got a bunch of sketches to show! While I’d prefer to post the sketches with the photos in one big recap post, it seems kinda wrong to just leave these awesome drawings sitting unseen in our inbox any longer.

Here’s a page full of quick (1-2 minute) sketches from David Newbold:

Here’s a few of Brian Dugan‘s quick sketches:

Brian captured Little Luna’s pixie-like beauty in his 10-minute drawings:

And, for his entry in the two-panel contest, Kurt Aspland was obviously also inspired by it:041409-kurta2

David Newbold was inspired to create a two-panel story of another sort…

041308-davidn2…and was one of the winners of a brand new wood panel and watercolor set from Artist & Craftsman Supply.

He and the other talented winner may have also gotten a small canvas each, actually. I honestly don’t remember now, because Don, our very generous sponsor at A&C, was giving away a shit-ton of free stuff –free (22″ x 30″, maybe?) sheets of Fabriano paper, some smaller sheets of tinted paper… Seriously, folks must have gotten the cover fee back in free art supplies. If you were one of those lucky artists to get in on this, be sure to stop by the store on North Ave. and Howard St. to thank him.

Our next contest was to incorporate mini-Munny into your drawing of Little Luna. The prize, of course, was a mini-Munny from Atomic Books in Hampden (reminder: you have less than two weeks to see their Vinylmore 2: Tiny Town show, right in the store.)

David’s entry for this contest:

And here’s Kurt’s:

And Brian’s (like David’s, imagining mini-Munny and Luna in a King Kong situation):

Leah Bloomfield took home the Munny with her Gulliver’s Travels-inspired drawing:

Our last contest was a bit of an experiment for us. Before the last break, I first showed off our very awesome prize from our newest sponsor, Baby Tattoo Books, which was a copy of Ragnar’s Symptomatica. We then passed out blank cards to the audience and asked them to write a single, random sentence on their card during the break. At the end of the break, we asked everyone to pass their card to the person on their left, then announced the contest: incorporate the sentence given to you into your drawing.

As if we needed any confirmation that our audience is made up of seriously twisted (but talented!) individuals…some of the things people came up with were pretty awesomely bizarre or just straight up wrong. Hopefully, we’ll get more of those to share here, but in the meantime, here’s Brian’s entry:

041309-briand3

And here’s a photo (one of the few we have at the moment) of the winner with his entry and his prize:img_3165-1

I think the sentence was something like, “The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy ketchup.”

And that’s all for now!

Well, almost. Here’s one more–Leah Bloomfield created this lovely finished illustration after the session, using her winning Munny sketch as a reference:

Special thanks to David, Brian, Kurt, and Leah for sharing their fantastic sketches with us! If you have sketches from any of our sessions that you’d like us to include in our blog, send them here.

And, of course, a huuuge thanks to our lovely muse, Little Luna!

Check back in a few days for the photos from this session and details on our next session on April 27.

Sketches from last session with Bambi Galore (and a couple from Lady Vile’s)

Here’s a sampling of some of the sketches from last session with Bambi.  These first couple are from Gene…

The next was for the panel contest to with a wood canvas from Artist & Craftsman Supply (137 W North Ave) . . the contest was to tell a two panel or more story (like a comic) using the poses…

These next two were from the Lady Vile session before Bambi’s…

The next was another contest for a moleskin from Atomic Books with the task being incorporating a chimpanzee attack into your drawing.  This one seriously cracked me up (as did most…for some reason folks went bananas with that one.)

Yes, I just went there.

Blame it on the mimosa.

Back to Bambi’s session, these next couple were done by Annika Romeyn.
