A quiet day

Only a few people showed up to class last night, on account of the Thanksgiving Holiday. It was kind of nice though, and Karl was particularly casual and funny. He went on a rant about Ferguson, ( we were all mourning the verdict) and then another rant about how people post a lot of stupid crap on the internet. It was really low key, and I kind of wish the class sizes were always that small. Trying to think like a sculptor when I draw, and carve out the forms in volume and not just two-dimensional shapes.

Trace and Friends

Trace is a challenge to draw because his hair is always obscuring part of his face. That and its so wild. But where I remember really struggling to capture him before, I think it got a bit easier this time around. We also drew our friends, which was a fun challenge, like switching gears from drawing Trace.

Welp, that's Fair...

The people in my class always seem to ask really interesting questions. Someone brought up sculpting and we had a rather interesting & lengthy discussion. In the end, I believe drawing informs sculpting , and sculpting informs drawing. Someone else mentioned they were on their way to Italy in a few weeks, and Karl happily rattled off a serious list of all the piazzas, museums and sculptures worth seeing. That should be the test for your teachers. To hold the bar very, VERY high. If they cant rattle off a list of all the art worth seeing in Italy, then you're off to a dubious start...

In other news, Sue informed us that there were a group of people (men predominantly ) who would walk around at burning man with a shirt on but no pants. Apparently these people were scorned even in the independently thinking, free spirited, bohemian environment of burning man. Their name, you ask? Shirt-cocks. Yup. That is a thing...Thanks Sue!

In still other news, remind me to sign up for sculpting next term. Its time. Seriously...Oh and the third drawing down made Karl stop and say "Hunh! (long pause) fair enough!" and walk away. *happydance*

Lip Sync

Two videos! The first is just a test where the character is saying A E I O U. The second is James Earl Jones from star wars saying "What is thy bidding my master...?
