Yeah nothin' to see here.
So today I went to the Torrance Artist's Guild meeting, which is free even for non-members. As I mentioned in an earlier post, José's uncle was to demonstrate his amazingtastic watercolor skills, and he did! José didn't come with me, so I found another friend from the studio I used to work/paint at, and she introduced me to him. He's so nice and sweet!
I swear, the way he paints is just magical. First you think he's just laying down random brushstrokes willy-nilly, and before you know it, BAM it's a picture! Holy crap! I was blown away. I asked him if he still taught classes, and he said no, but if I rounded up like 5 people he'd be willing to teach us.
I also found out that he actually served as an art director for many ad agencies(!!) and started the Philippine Watercolor Association or something. Right now he currently works as a caricature artist at Disneyland and Disney's California Adventure. Next time you're there, look for a short Filipino man with white hair named Magoo Valencia!
While I was there I was taking notes and drawin' peoples lol.
THOUGHT PROCESS FTW
Also here is a copy of a man naked from the waist. For some reason every time I draw a man's torso it ends up looking fatty fat fat :|
