Lunchtime tweet: “Lunch hour spent eating musubi and sipping on milk tea in sunny portsmouth square and watching the old folks do their thing.”
Got a little bit of a tan and a few post-it doodles in while I was at it, including:
24 May: Alice
I have hereby learned the hard way that one should not procrastinate on assignments for drawing class. I started at 6pm, and here I finally am, nine hours later, with my four final project pieces. 2.25 hours each? And I even think that’s a PR for me. Anyhow, the theme is Alice in Wonderland, and the media were conte and charcoal.
Tomorrow is my last ever drawing class. We’re doing a show/critique! And though it’s been awesome, I cannot tell you how excited I am to get my Tuesday and Thursday nights back. Yayayayayay…
1 Mar: Breakfast
The assignment was to draw our breakfast, but God help me if I ever actually make myself breakfast and then let it sit there for two hours getting cold while I draw it. So I may have cheated a bit.
Got points off for not drawing the table/context, though. Evidently breakfasts do not just float there in midair for people to come along and draw them.
23 Feb: Homework
One of my first still lifes ever, for drawing class. Whew. The camera was a doozy.
24. What was the best book you read?
Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, Jonathan Safran Foer. It ranks in my favorite books, ever. That may have been right on the edge of 2008, though… so in case I’m cheating, I definitely did read The Elegance of the Hedgehog (Muriel Barbery) in 2009, and it made me cry.
(From a series of my answers to the usual end-of-year survey questions. Photo/art by me.)
