Back in Business...

For those of you who haven't been here in a while, you may notice a sudden increase in postings... No, I didn't get a TARDIS for Christmas, I've just been catching up. Its not that I haven't been drawing and painting all this time, I just kind of forgot to post any of it...

So take a gander back at the past couple of months to see what I've been up to!

Auction Piece #1

Mouth #1 - EJamieson 2011

I created this piece (and the drawing next week) for a charity Auction at Gallery 101 here in Ottawa. Apparently it is actually quite fun to watch as people bid on your artwork...!

Old Old Fashioned

Old Timey Radio -EJamieson 2011

I've recently been doing a lot of drawings inspired by songs I have stuck in my head- This one was inspired by Old Old Fashioned by Frightened Rabbit. Not exactly an illustration, more like a kernel turned into a sketch!

My Current Sketchbook Cover

Giacometti Sketchbook Cover Drawing -EJamieson2011

 Giacometti is my absolute all-time favorite sculptor- his pieces make me feel like I'm seeing a part of the world that is usually invisible. Its what drawing is all about- capturing a moment in time that would otherwise be invisible as soon as it passes. What better sketch for the front of my book?

Cool Cat Bus Dude

Cool Cat Bus Dude -EJamieson2011

For the first time in my drawing-people-on-buses career I had to actually be stealthy! This guy was sucha  cool cat that he had a sixth sense about when I was looking at him... creepy. Actually, he was probably thinking that I was creepy....

What I've Been Busy With...

The Board- EJamieson 2011

I have to admit, I haven't been keeping up with my postings as I've been busily helping out with a few different productions! As such, I thought I would post some sketches done mid-rehearsal!

One More from Montréal...

A-Dam -EJamieson2011

Adam looking way hairier and way more Mediterranean than in real life... at least I got the nose right!

Catching Up

Upon returning from a busy trip to Montreal it appears I have some catching up to do! Luckily riding the metro, sitting in coffee shops, and attending the Nuit Blanche festivities have all provided me with excellent opportunities for brushing up on my speed-sketching skillz.
