I have been working on lots of things, round and round. Today working on the face and mood of the next watercolor ‘girl riding in front of graffiti’. The first day sketching can be the hardest, my favorite. Getting the shape of summer, speed, joy and a tiny amount of anxiety in the smile. The first painting what a two wheeler, next a three wheeler (big wheel style). Now for a four wheeler skater. Roller skating at the end of summer, watercolor.
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.
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 …
Working and getting excited about this new, in-progress, body of work (5×7 collage drawings, done with paper, paint and ink.) will be shown at the Hive Gallery in May for “The Lines Attack” show. I have been attempting to illustrate a narrative that until now only lived in my sketchbooks, it’s a fractured series of vignettes that record my musings as I commute around the planet. Some of which, “A study on animal development in responds to auto injuries (in fast forward)”, and A rumination on advances in facial hair despite contrary marketing. 16, 5×7 inch paper drawings, Alex Feliciano …

Making a travel watercolor set out of an Altoids Small tin. I wanted something I could easily pocket, sturdy, a ulta compact. I have been super happy with this solution, it is a modification of others I have found online. The big difference is that I’m using clear legos to create the cake pans. I can switch them out, or rearrange them with out a mess or fuss. Here you can see my set up, paints out, tins cleaned, test page to the right where I test my colors (I still forget what color is what) and Legos. Supplies: One “Altoids …

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 …
