Getting a little grip with my intuos: Philip K. Dick

After years of having bought my first tablet, a Wacom Intuos 2, I'm finally losing he dread and gaining a little confidence, as well as a decent grip, on the damn tool.

This is a roughly done sketch of the sci-fi author Philip K. Dick. Even though my knowledge of his works is quite limited, a fact that I'm plaining to retify soon, I loved everything I read from him as well as a few adaptations of his novels into movies. Just to name a few: "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" (Blade Runner), Minority Report (Minority Report), Second Variety (Screammers) and The Impostor (The Impostor).

The Sarah Connor Chronicles

I've watched "The Sarah Connor Chronicles" about 3-4 times from start to finish and still haven't passed the exitement of watching Lena Headey playing Sarah Connor. She is way different from Linda Hamilton, so a initial disconfort was expected, but I believe that it is exactly why she works so well. Hamilton played Connor as a air head teenager and later as a action lead. Both caracterizations would get tiring after a few episodes. Headey did it differently: as a mother who was more prepared to fight the end of the world than to really grasp the basics of parenting. And all this while still being strong and sexy. You gotta love that.

self-portrait 2011

I grew tired of that piece I did in 2008 so I decided to make a more recent, and hopefully more polished, self-portrait. It is still a long way from a good self-portrait but at least it does not bother me with all those marker lines. Bush, media ink on A4 layout paper.
