drawing a day ~ week 30
drawing a day ~ week 30 Originally uploaded by dressform.
the BIG 3-0. it's kind of hard to believe. do the drawings feel more adult? this week was very very organic. and i don't mean that in a hippy, granola way... i mean that the shapes and stuff seem organic.
mecozy with the help of mav [who BTW is celbrating a bloggversary! yay!] came up with a shoot a color per day photo hunt... today's color is yellow [i feel like sesame street!]
what i really like about this project is the LOOKING AROUND. look at what you have. look at it in a new way. i'm thinking this should carry over into the drawings. what am i looking at? why? how do i frame it? what shapes am i drawn to... and how will that correlate with color?? mmmm. nice thoughts....
i had a lovely day with lisa bird on saturday. i so admire her drive... after long days at work she manages to create so much... and she is so giving - sharing so much of her technique, skills, ideas with all of us.... uh not to mention she's beyond talented and a super spiffy dresser! she's the one that took photos... i was too shy.... you can see a re-count of the day here
and before i go... some book thoughts.... my dad suggested this , i've heard good things about this and this wouldn't be a "happy" read - but i loved the excerpt i read in the times, and i'm a fan of didion.... any other thoughts??
the music swap partners have been determined... if you signed up and i missed you... leave a comment!
