This is a blog where the beasts of San Diego come and share their talents both from inside the theme parks and outside in their own world. Anything goes, so prepare for a truly beasted experience.

Oakes Beastathon

Day 4: This first couple were great to draw! They waited for me and they had just the right amount of interesting stuff going on. You know what I mean? He's got that awesome hair and a soul patch, to go along with his face which was pretty easy to figure out. She's got the big eyes, big lips, big hair, big earrings( which I didnt draw her right one, oops) and big belly. FUUUNN stuff.

Day 3: Only took a couple pictures today, it's Saturday so I was trying to draw fast and was competing with Andy for sales(I took him down).
Next time I do a wrestler sketch I'm going to try to improve on this idea. I think the angle could have been much more dynamic, but I liked trying to capture the moment of the other wrestler trying to get up as he's about to get hit.

Day 2: So far, so good. Today, my marker was singin' for me, as Aaron would say, and I also had a ton of great faces! I couldn't help by take my time on a lot of them. All together I drew 26 people today, but these were the ones I liked the best!

Nate's gonna have a fit after he see's this first guy. He's wearing a Steelers jersey, but he wanted to be drawn playing for the Cowboys!! He's lucky Nate didnt draw him

"Wrestlin' an octopus." Thats what she wanted!

He asked for a sea lion and this is what came out of me, a giant floating rat. I thought by his facial expression he needed a cigarette.

Sorry, you may have seen me just do this exact body situation, but I loved the way the guy turned out. I just wish I got a better picture of him. It wasnt even good enough to show here, use your imagination.
This girl wanted to be drawn baking.........Shamu. Not so happy with the likeness, but you just cant beat baking Shamu!

Yeah Brian that sounds good.

The photo of them doesn't really reveal what I saw when they sat, but I had fun with this one. I told her she had Britney Spears' eyes a little bit I thought. I don't know what it is, but since I've been back this is the third couple of honeymooners from Utah that I've drawn. Guess them Utes like it here. Also apparently wedding rings make hands look retarded. I promise my next post won't look anything like this drawing.

What I hope to do is post at least one BEASTed sketch each day I work. I'll try not to forget.
I work Mon, Wed, Thurs, Sat, Sun, so check in on those days!

This couple came up and said "can you do a crazy one for us?" I said "heck yes!"
But then they're all like "can you do professions?" And I said "yea", as I was losing interest since I knew I'd be focusing on how the hell I'm going to make two different proffessions work in one sketch rather than how I'm going to exaggerate their faces. Which I could do both no problem, but I didnt feel like taking forever on it. So I just whipped this one out going for the 'ol "quick and loose" look.

Back Up In It

It's good to be back in the park with everyone havin fun. These were the first two since I've been back that I thought were pretty decent, likeness wise. But oh man did I sure miss on the upper half of the man's head! AHH WELL...! Here's to a good summer!
