Pushboxer: Live Drawing
Just released: Pushboxer's video "Pictures"
Yup, that's my hand.
We shot these in an afternoon all in a row.
I should note- it's definitely fast-forward footage and not just too much caffeine making the twitchy fast speed. I'm working from photos and a light pencil outline I'd prepped.
There's a few different styles in the finished drawings: brush inked, scratchy sketching, line drawing, and a mix. Also featured are a selection of my favorite media- gel ink pens, watercolour style wash brushes, and the always handy cheap Papermate pencils.
The band are very sweet, and I enjoy their sound- it was great to draw to! I've worked with the director Mark Buchanan on storyboards for his sci-fi feature "The Simulation."
