So far this is the first post here of 2011. I’m sorry for the long drought. I have some work from the last few months that I’ll gradually post here, perhaps to start working my way back to regular updates. So far, here’s the original painting for the debut album of my band, The Key Frames. The album’s called Out On The Point and you can buy copies here.

Well I suppose that that’s it for now or at least for a little while. I made a commitment a year ago to post a new drawing every day for the entirety of the year 2010 and now that that’s over, I guess my period of drawing indentured servitude is as well. I’ll definitely keep updating this blog, just not necessarily on a rigorously regular schedule. This particular year might not have been the optimal year to try this experiment, but it was the year that I did it and at the very least I can say that indeed I did do it. Some of the drawings I’m quite fond of, some less so. I struggle to find some cohesion in all of them. For the most part I was pretty exhausted by the time I got around to drawing but I don’t want to make excuses for any of them. Actually some of my favorites over the past year are the really sleepy ones. Too often I really didn’t feel like drawing for whatever reason, but the feeling of obligation kept me going. Right now I’m looking forward to not having to worry about it for the time being.

Horse Head Tunnel

I’d like to apologize for the cheapness of so many of these drawings lately. Too often I’m trying to draw them while fighting sleep and hoping that Julian doesn’t wake up too soon.

The Stork And The Cloud

After many months of smaller format books, I’m back to this larger format. I only wish I could have been drawing this big this whole time.

Fingerpick

Apologies for the low quality  transfer, my scanner still isn’t working so I photographed this one. It might be a couple of weeks before I can get the scanner in working order, so bare with me.

Trinity-Bellwoods Tree

Posted in meta, trees with tags on August 7, 2010 by theoedmands

Yet another drawing of a tree. I have way too many drawings of trees and clouds in this blog so far. One thing that I’ve learned from making myself draw every single day, especially when I usually only have time to do these drawings at the very end of the night when I desperately want to go to sleep, is that it’s much easier to draw the same things, like playing an old song rather than writing a new song  every time you play music. So as a result, lots of tree and cloud drawings.
