5 Min Faces 01MAR-24MAR

On March 1st, 2012, I started a new #100DaysArt challenge: 5 min faces.  These are done on a 9″x11″ sketchbook with a gel pen and a timer set for 5 minutes.  You can find all of them at the 5 Minute Faces gallery.

A Brief Note 26MAR2012

I’m not really sure where we’re going right now.  The twitter crowd has dwindled.  I have been banned from Ustream.  Feedback from this newsletter is nil.  I’m out of money at the studio.

Oh yes, I was banned from Ustream because I held up my sketchbook of nudes.  I flipped my thumb through it and was saying how I couldn’t show it there because Ustream has a zero tolerance policy for nudity.  That’s when I looked up and saw that I was banned for violating the nudity policy.

It’s all I can do to find the strength to continue to art.

Continue to art!

I was arting before there was twitter and Ustream.  I was arting before this newsletter, and of course before I bought the studio.  I will continue to art as long as I’m able.  You should too.

If you’ve been arting lately, send me a link and let me see it.

I have set up a new account at Livestream and everything should be in motion for the show to continue from there.  There will be a few changes you should be aware of.  Livestream doesn’t have a namby-pamby nudity restriction.  So I most likely WILL show off the nude sketchbooks.  As a matter of fact, the first livestream broadcast is probably going to be titled “The Artistic Biker Does Nudes” or “The Artistic Biker All Nude All The Time”.  Should make for solid entertainment if you’re into gnomes.

5 Minute Nudes Finale

NUDITY ALERT! Duh! I am spending 5 minutes a day practicing drawing naked ladies nude figures. This is part of my #100DaysArt process where I pick something to practice for 100 days in a row.  Here are the 5 minute nudes for the week of February 20, 2012 through February 29, 2012. All of the previous 5 minute nudes may be found in the Gallery under 5 minute nudes.
