starchy sketches

Quick scribbles and thoughts from the life of pasta.

From Jenny O., Rainy day blues.

Super quick.

It would be fun to develop into something Mucha-esque.  I love how he handled drawing hands, which is what the picture reminded me of (click through).  I should practice more hands.  ;_;

From Street Peeper, Jesse Grey, NYC.

From The Sartorialist, On the Street…Calle del Prado, Madrid.

From Street Peeper, Elena Perminova, Stella Show, Paris.

I’m trying to get better at caricaturing people.  The one on the right is a quick sketch of the same man, but I was trying to exaggerate his proportions more.  Sigh.  I’m working on it.  :)

From Street Peeper, Big Scarf, Big Pants, London.

More watercolors.  I just love these classic pieces.  And the bright socks.

From Homotography, Kilian Martin by Karim Sadli.

Trying out watercolors.

From The Sartorialist, On The Street…Black, White, Red, Florence.

Quick sketch from a photo from Street Etiquette.  Winter is definitely here.

Another sketchbook page from last October.  I was obsessing over different collars and re-discovered Anna Sui’s Fall 2006 RTW collection.

I still love peter pan collars, though for the life of me I can’t find any shirts with them in stores.  Perhaps because I never go shopping.  And I still love that collection.

Sketchbook pages from last October.  I was obsessing over 1940’s dresses, keyhole backs, different necklines, etc.

I still love the military style of 1940’s clothes (especially nurses’ capes), probably due to the military trend that’s still going strong.  But now I’ve come to the realization that you can’t wear a bra while sporting something with a keyhole back, so that’s the end of that obsession.
