drawing a day ~ week 26 Originally uploaded by dressform.
wow... the ritual is back. feels oddly familiar - like i'm having deja vu... oh yeah i used to blog about my week of drawings on mondays.... late... after class....
this set was definitely more of a struggle, but what also came back were all the thoughts about why i was doing this project in the first place. esp. this week when i don't think i'll have a spare moment to step into the studio. [other than to maybe pick something up/drop something off....] it was actually nice to have a "non" color... to really concentrate on the lines... the space. the bird one is the one that really hummed for me this week. just copying some funny etching of a bird... and then adding a crown. so silly. so simple... so my frame of mind at the moment. [what exactly does that say?]
so... i had to deal with not 1 but 2 counts of plagiarism with my students. i have NEVER had this happen before. as i was reading/grading my heart just sank. neither student is "bad" or problematic... but is there really any excuse for copying something WORD FOR WORD from a website [without siting credit]? did they think i wouldn't notice? the vocabulary and stylistic tone were completely different in the sections they actually wrote and the sections they blatently snatched. in a collegiate environment how would this ever seem appropriate. am i crazy? aaarrrrgggghhh
speaking of pirates :} did you see lisa's [bird] ship?? loved that.
and finally for your funny bone.... remember when i wore an e-collar? and then miss a did too??? well... they were on the RUNWAY. yes gaultier... just go see the boing boing reference....
