Black Eyed Peas

Yes the band =) They really churned out a lot of funky and catchy tunes throughout the years, and one of the latest I often heard over the radio is called "Just can't get enough" so I went on Youtube to look at the video, loved it! You can watch it here.
So here's a sketch I did just a few days before(because I knew I was going to be really busy at work for 7 days non-stop, and I was right), and it's based on the music video of course.
(Moleskine sketchbook 5x8")
Thank you all so much for dropping by and leaving comments. You guys are always so kind and encouraging and a lot of times when I am really tired or stressed(not often) from work, I always keep in my mind that at least I have this, life is good(yeah I guess LG is right ^^)

  8. Alex, you are so right about drawing and getting feedback to relieve stress. I get that effect not only from doing my own drawings, but from watching talented artists like you. Thanks for blogging!

  9. Great work, Alex! This might be a very good cover for one of their records or a poster to advertise a concert of the Black Eyed Peas! Your technique is really fabulous!

  10. Nice job. I've heard of the group but didn't know what they looked like. I like the use of color to enhance the figures just a bit.

  23. Very nice sketching Alex! Love the little color notes! Thanks for commenting on my blog. I'm 62 or3 of 100 dogs now and I've been pretty good with the Every Day in May challanges. Days like today even if I've done the drawing I have to wait for daylight to get a good photo.
    Beautiful drawings! Continued success!

  25. Great Alex! Miss seeing your art. Life just seems to be too busy some months. Try penciling in an appointment to sketch on your calendar at least a couple times and treat it like a real dentist or doctor appt. Then use your hour to draw!!

  26. Alex, I really love the sculptural quality of your drawings and how the color highlight works with the black and white. It's been a busy time around here, too.
