The First 11 Pages

About 5 days into the New Year I finished the first Fabriano sketchbook. 192 drawings on 7" X 9" paper - I think about three were scrapped and cut out of the book and two pages were just used for testing media. You can read a little about the first book in the third post in this blog.

, these are the first 11 drawings in the new book.

#1 Frontice
#2 Curtain Up At The Bloor,
#3 copy from Daumier.
#4 same
#5 Parking Lot At Loblaws.
#6 North York Centre
#7 The Tall Guy In Front, Bloor Cinema
#8 Elizabeth Street, (this is where I wait for deirdre when I go to pick her up after work.
#9 Elizabeth Street Parking Meter,
#10 Supper At Te Drake. (Waiting for
my order to come.)
#11 North York Centre Tower (De Chirico Comes To North York)

A Label Gallery Show

Flyer looks pretty good.

Possibly, Perhaps.

What I need to do is post some of the stuff from the cartooning class Deirdre and I are taking.

Some Images

-- Taken with my Olympus D-540 point-and-shoot digital camera, at night - illuminated by street lights or predawn ligh. Camere settings on "bright sunlight", max optical zoom, while moving the camera.
Corel Photo Paint filters applied.
#1, China Town, Dundas and Elizabeth Street, from Elizabeth Street, across from Japango, looking north towards the bus terminal.
#2, 16th Ave. west of Warden. This was a van turning the corner with the reflections of passing cars
#3, 16th and Hwy. 404, the northbound on-ramp and the light poles in the median.
I should provide Google Earth links to the exact locations each image is from. It really doesn't matter where the photos were taken since there is little or no resemblance between the image and it's location. Or, it is a resemblance that is difficult to glean as the elements of time and motion have been added.
