Category: SketchBook friday
Sketching in large sketchbook 11’x14’ on paper with markers, ink and watercolors, sometimes with pen.
Doodling with grey marker on large paper, Alex Feliciano is marking you b-boys in the clouds.
Spring is gone and summer is almost over. Only a few more weekends to wear this dress. Have you hear this song (track 2, side B). This is one of the “sketches of spring” I will be attempting to make one a day, enjoy and share.
More figure drawing. I skipped into the figure drawing event today, like a kid going to get ice cream. The model was super and the lighting was challenging (in a good way). The short 3 and 5 minute poses came first, then a cookie break and then back to drawing with some longer poses. This time I didn’t forget to note the times for each drawing. A three minute pose. Getting into the 3 Minute thing, But I miss my blue pencil. This one was super awesome, the model was doing a scary ‘ROAR’ pose but kept laughing. Looking at again …
I’m having a great time playing with isometric robots.. I’m using #madewithpaper / fiftythree.com, more drawings, musing and doodles at alexfeliciano.com.
Doodling while eating my noodling. More from the sketchbook, I have had little time to work on paintings but that is because my studio is in a state of neglect becoming the dumping ground for lots of great ideas that need to be worked on.
I wrapped up this ‘moleskin, cassette’ book, full of unlined writing/journal pages, good for markers and pens but curled a bit with watercolors. Hanging out with ‘P’. Notice the sweet adidas jacket, I will post the painting I did from this sketch later. Clem like to lay still while she gets her portrait done. The boys watching ‘The princess bride’ with mom.
Internal combustion, eat berries, and creating pink methane. Then you fall in love buy a sofa. When your away your dog is sleeping in your spot. The reindeer have EPA restrictions, and green camouflage. Deer are color blind that’s why they have stylist. A good stylist get kisses. Love is like a reindeer kiss.
My mood ring made me scream, then I ordered, “humm today I want some ice cream”, she wrote it down and asked about my doodling. That’s when I thought about leaving, the paper started to speaking. “Shh!” I’m eaten. New sketchbook pages…
I has been a minute. I have a few sketch book pages to share. Playing with watercolors and ink. Wanted to see how far I could push a throw up. Shark and submarine, 2015, fun with letters. Block head, 2015. Silly. Mmmm the body is magic, 2015. I plan on exploring this more. Now with teeth, 2015. Squishy, nice try more work to do. Green breakthrough, 2015. Watercolor pen and fun, little dude pushing green letters. So I will be posting more often, as a catalyst to creating more work. Keeping me on my toes. Paint, publish, repeat!
Hola, I have been hard at work making paintings for the Hive (LA), and getting The Sis & Moon Studio looking good. So the “Friday Sketchbook review” has been taking a back seat, But I’m back on track now. The materials haven’t changed much, water color box, fountain water color brush, fountain ink brush, and sketchbook. I have added a few color pencils and a white gel pen (LOVE). I also have just started a new sketchbook, you will see the work next friday from that one, It’s a Moleskine and I look forward to wrecking it. Love, a “P” meets …

This week past 16 years, February 1997 – Nov 15th 2013. I have worked on this sketchbook, on and off. It was started out as a journal for my lizard. In 1997 I bought a tiny lizard from a street peddler and named it “Frog”. I continued working on the book long after I let the lizard go but ‘Frog’ continued to be a source of inspiration. I would use this book whenever the ‘Frog’ inspiration hit. This was never my main sketchbook, I picked it up and worked on it from time to time. 84 pages, divided by 16 years gives …
