Took the original photo for this on a recent Sunday morning with my iPhone camera. There's also an interesting video I'll post later but that's all about eye movement.
Got to draw from a live model last night for the first time in around 20 or more years. I forgot how much of a part of me it is. Since I spent 10 years at the Art Students League in NYC doing nothing but life drawing on weekends.
I've got a long way to go to get back to where I was but it will be a great trip getting there. Here are some samples of 10 minute sketches. Obviously they are unfinished.
I believe that humanities major talent is making symbols. We have been this way since the beginnings of our existence as a race. It is the reason we have a written language, music, painting, sculpture, dance, mathematics, the sciences and our entire civilization. This is the cornerstone of what it is to be a thinking human being. My painting, mixed media and digital works are his explorations into the creative spirit.
