Cops and model sheets

Greetings. 'Haven't posted a drawing for while so here's some cop-bots for you I did on the train on the way to class. The highway patrol man from "Psycho" was a sort of basis for this....And some model sheets for the bots project. Even though this is an illustration project, I still put these together to make drawing these guys a little easier. The end is near for this project, finally.

Happy 4th...Er 7th of July

Went back home to see Gramma and Granpa for Amara's first chance to hold sparklers and see "safe and sane" fireworks which are legal there. She liked them for a moment but then they got too loud and she was too tired so there ended the Fourth of July for Amara.
I took some pictures and here they are.
Writing Amara above. Need a longer exposure. Everybody gets in on it.
Don't use a flash

And this cool bug flew in for a visit.

Hope you had a happy and safe Fourth.

Legion Of Honor San Franciso CA

Hi. Today my class met at the Legion of Honor in San Francisco. In my top 5 favorite museums, I just love this place. I could spend all day walking the grounds and looking at the magnificent works inside. I hope my students enjoyed this excursion as much as I did.

Very sad to say that most of my photos were very shakey. Too much coffee I suppose but I just can’t get used to this tiny digital camera. This is best of the shots I took. Should have remembered to write down the artists oh well.

Lots of Rodin sculptures here. They always make me think of Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein”.

People whose flesh has been clumped and smashed together to form super humans.

Spectacular landscapes.

Jose Jimenez y Aranda's Holy Week In Seville 1879

I adore this painting and run through the museum just to spend time with it whenever I go.

There is so much character in the faces and the staging is wonderful, sure the composition is so so but ah to paint some many characters so beautifully...

Very disappointed I couldn't get a still picture, but can't use a flash.

Columbus As A Boy.Marble as cloth- the whole reason why we took the trip.

Upon arriving I saw a coyote, see it?
