    The JesterBook- August 9: Gestures

    2 years after a failed attempt at a "daily" sketchbook, the jester returns with more realistic goals and a clearer view of what he wants to teach himself!

    Between projects, classes, my thesis, and all that "trying to become an architect" stuff, it's getting harder and harder to keep drawing. Still, the pencil is allways my single most important tool. So, what better way to make you draw, than being a member of a community that continuously blasts your head off with amazing art? Oh, and kicks your ass for being lazy?

    I know I won't be able to post stuff daily, but I'll give it my best!!!





    So, first post...

    These are sketches of the CCB (Centro Cultural de Belem) and the FAUTL (Facultade Arquitectura em Universidade Tecnica de Lisboa), in Lisbon Portugal, where I spent my last semester as an exchange sudent. More on Lisbon later on, here's the first batch!

    ...and here's the 2nd batch. These are sketches from the streets of Lisbon. It's an unblievably beautiful city. I really cannot describe what it feels like to walk through the alleys of Alfama or climb the hundrends of steps to one of the seven hills, lie in Adamastor's shadow and gaze across the Tejo...

    Up. More Lisbon sketches. Have to explain I guess. All of these are roughly 5-10x10cm quick sketches on the spot, "volumetric" studies of the urban fabric. Part of a class I took in Lisbon.

    @DSmith: thanks dude, drawing value studies of the city has become very intriguing for me lately, more to come, definately!!!

    PNate:Thanks, much appreciated!!! I've got tons of projects lying around, maybe I should post something, although there's a bunch of projects waiting to be finished too, maybe I'll post those if I ever manage to complete them...

    great start to a sketchbook, Jester.
    I like your sketches of buildings. One can definately see your architectural roots crisp lines. just watch the perspective more closely sometimes. have actually parallel line go to the same vanishing point when they're pointing away a bit more acurately.
    and the lifedrawings look good as well. The charcoal ones look really nice, some issues with proportion here and there but minor things that will probably be better in the next session already. practice makes perfect.
    oh and the 10second drawings are impressive. good proportion and flow!! 10 seconds! damn.
    keep it up, mate.
