100 gestures plus 17 posted a challenge of doing 100 gesture drawings in a week. (Emma first brought it to my attention. Thanks!) The most current one is 200 gestures in a week. Because I missed out on the first round, I did over 100 during the 200 run period. These came really quickly, once I found willing subjects at the local park and a couple animals. It was a nice loosening up exercise. I did the 117 gestures in 3 days' time.

brush pen heads

I did some quick portraits on BART using the Faber-Castell brush pen. It isn't as fine as the sumi brush pen, but it's waterproof.

Neil Gaiman in Berkeley

Neil Gaiman did a performance from his new book of short stories, Fragile Things, on October 2nd at the Berkeley Repertory Theater. I sat in the third row, stage right, scribbling in the semi-darkness doing his portrait as he read stories and poems and zipped through a stack of questions. It was a very entertaining evening.
