And I don't have very much to show for it.
Jimmy and I made a Jack-o-Lantern, but it has since died. It was lovely for a time, though.
Matt Curtius had us design book jackets...so here's mine. We had this short story, along with another one called "City of Clowns" by Daniel Alarcón to chose from. Measuring everything was surprisingly difficult.
Pencil pencil pencil! My right hand has been stained grey lately.
Remember that model, Travis? How could you not...I sort of liked those two, despite the boring poses. The second is a piece that I did for Roger Roth, who held a Halloween drawing contest this past week. Jimmy's was obviously a bit more fun and active, but I had a good time trying to get the creep factor going. Old family portraits are always so spooky. The last is a particularly boring drawing for a particularly boring assignment: draw a landscape that has some sort of personal meaning behind it. *Yawn* This is from some reference that I shot back in July at the park, and basically chose it because it has just the right amount of depth and aerial perspective, as well as a dose of personal connection. Anyway. Can you see why I haven't really been posting stuff?
This is what I'll be working on today. A fictional assignment from the National Library Association or some such nonsense. Roger wanted us to choose a figure from American history, so I chose two, my homeboys from 1804, Lewis and Clark. We'll see how it turns out. I still have a couple of amendments to make to the drawing itself, so yeah. More on this later.
Grasshopper says hi.
