Catching Up...

Okay, so my scanner has officially bit the dust, which is the reason why this post is so long overdue.  I have so much catching up to do I don't even know where to start... 

This morning I braved the cold, laden with a semester's worth of lifesize drawings, sketches, and in-class studies to make the (seemingly) long trek down to the Main Building, intent on documenting my work before finals really start picking up.  I photographed around 40 pieces before the camera's battery called it quits...  I'm hoping to get all the images up here in the next month or so, according to relevance and/or theme.  

These two drawings are life size, done in one class period.  It was a little difficult to work on such a large surface, considering we had to tack our paper to the homosote walls, which meant our backs were to the model.  It was definitely an exercise in scale as well as memorization--looking over the shoulder, making a mark, and looking back again.  Overall I'm pleased with the results--it's refreshing to change things up every once in a while.  

Right now I am looking ahead to Thanksgiving Break, which starts this coming Wednesday.  I'm excited to see my family in Michigan, eat home-cooked meals, and not have to climb a ladder to get in and out of bed!
