GEICO SEPTA Fleisher Degas

This is something I sketched from an advertisement on a SEPTA train. SEPTA's troubles have severely reduced my morning studio time, so sketches are all I can offer today.

The Political Cartooning class is now complete. I was lucky enough to have a great audience of talented and enthusiastic Fleisher students. We all had a great time drawing politicians from photos and videos while discussing the art of political cartooning. It was a terrific experience and like many of my colleagues, I can now say I've taught a course at Fleisher. Woo!

Now I'm off to New York to see the Degas exhibit.

End of line.

Course update

Great news! I've been informed that the Political Cartooning course is definitely going to happen. Thanks to everyone who signed up, everyone who spread the word, and everyone who is enthusiastic about the concept. There is now another week to sign up before the first day of class on Tuesday the 12th!

These are pages from my 6 x 8" sketchbook. Most are the same person from various figure drawing sessions in June. I drew the horizontal one today. The guy in the shades was on a SEPTA train.

Today's political cartoon

At Fleisher's outdoor arts festival two weeks ago, this cartoon was sitting on my table, penciled, but not yet inked. Someone who introduced himself as a teacher of many years, made a point to say he loves this cartoon. Pre-approved by a teacher – sweet.

Last chance to sign up

If you are considering signing up for the Political Cartooning course Fleisher asked me to teach next month, time is quickly running out. I've been informed that we need two more students to sign up this weekend for the class to run. This will be a fun and educational three-nights and as adult courses go, the price isn't too shabby. If you're on the fence, I'd appreciate your vote. Thanks!
