Drawing people draws people

My new drawings from my classes, trip, bible study and fellowship.
Since I loved to draw architecture, people were always secondary subject for me.(Also I messed up every time I draw people, so I avoided more.) but I realized this is why I need to draw people, I have been tried to draw people from life since last winter, and this time I focused on only people. I messed up most of times at first, ruined my sketchbook pages a lot. But more I ruin it, more I develop, now I love to draw people!

Hope you enjoy appreciating these drawings as much as I enjoyed drawing them :)

Butterflies are free

I did poster for play called "butterflies are free". The play is written by Leonard Gershe, it is also filmed in 1972 by director Milton Katselas, in 1986, a musical was also made.

Synopsis :
The story is set in the San Francisco of 1970's. All Don Baker wants is a place of his own away from his over-protective mother. Don's been blind since birth, but that doesn't stop him from setting up in an apartment and making the acquaintance of his off-the-wall, liberated, actress neighbor Jill. Jill has never met a blind man before, so she asks all sorts of question about how Don manages everyday chores. Don starts to fall in love with Jill, but Jill is moving in with Ralph who is director of a play in which she'll be acting...

"I only ask to be free. The butterflies are free. Mankind will surely not deny to Harold Skimpole what it concedes to the butterflies." By - Mark Twain

Episode :
I don't know why but thought the background of the story was New York. So I drew high buildings image including empire state building. Oooops! It was my mistake, I have to fix it.. yes, to study and accustom to the story is basic but crucial before making a picture!

I've played with type a lot but It still not quietly work for this piece. I need to study type !

Matt&Tyler's wedding

I painted wedding pictures' CD cover for Matt&Tyler who are good friends of mine. Congratulation again ! :)

Virginia Asian Chamber of Commerce Business China meeting.

I got phone call from Ms. Mylan Tran who is a senior coordinator of Virginia Asian Chamber of Commerce(VACC). She was impressed by my exhibition, asked me to paint for VACC gala show on December in Jefferson Hotel. Also she invited me to its business china forum, I met lots of business people including Jim Cheng who is Virginia Secretary of Trade and Commerce. I did quick life drawing during the forum, which I've been tried and will try to focus on since I want to catch a moment as a journal of daily events. It was definitely unexpected phone call, I thank you Lord to show me another opportunity.

"In his heart a man plans is course, but the LORD determines his steps"

Spring is in the air,

It's time to draw outside :)
