Doodle a Day

So two weeks ago, my friends and I attended the 2010 Creative Talent Network (CTN) Expo. It was definitely an awesome experience, meeting some of the artists in the industry like John Nevarez, David Colman, and Chris Ayers, just to name a few, sitting in panels, interviews, buying books and just meeting other talented people.

My friends and I were really inspired that we challenged ourselves to do what artist, Chris Ayers did, a doodle a day, 365 drawings in one year. Check out his story and his work at: www.chrisayersdesign.com

So, here's what I have so far. I'll try to post my doodle everyday. Enjoy!!

Doodle 001: Pakie
Since it was my good friend's, Pakie Seung, birthday, my first doodle is of her. Happy birthday, Pak!

Doodle 002: Audrepunzel
I just got "The Art of Tangled" book, so I was inspired to draw my goddaughter as Rapunzel, since she's got that looong hair just like Rapunzel...not that long of course, but long enough! Good book, by the way.

Doodle 003: Drin
I was playing with my nephew today and just watching his face as he talks to me, so I said why not? I was trying to play with different shapes and ways to make his face a bit more cartoony.

Doodle 004: Thanksgiving with this Guy!
I went home to the Bay Area for Thanksgiving. After eating and eating so much, I just sat on the couch and watched as much Food Network as I can, since I don't have cable at my place. I've always liked watching triple D's (Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives) with host Guy Fieri. He was doing a triple D special on Thanksgiving. So I decided...Guy it is!

Doodle 005: Playing with my Girl
After having another delicious dinner with my girlfriend, we just sat down on her couch one night and chillaxed! I grabbed my drawing pad and started doodling her. Here I was playing with shapes and trying to push certain features and exaggerating them.

Doodle 006: Edu
I was having dinner with my girlfriend's family for her mom's birthday, and her uncle turns to me and says "Aries, draw me. Lemme pose por you!" I borrowed her pen and drew him on the paper place mat. Sorry for the bad quality, I took it with a camera phone.

Doodle 007: Baby Girl
I went to a coffee shop one cold night and decided to draw my goddaughter. I exaggerated the eyes and made it even bigger. She's a silly one!

Doodle 008: Pac-Man
Need I say more? Gotta represent my pinoy brother!

Doodle 009: Rhino
I was going through my Zoonooz magazine and I figured okay why not do an animal this time. My friends say if I was an animal I'd be a rhino, so here's me!
