drawing a day ~ week 35 Originally uploaded by dressform.
it is always hard to go back to the drawings after being away. it's definitely less of a struggle when i have a groove going.... of note this week.... the first drawing is to celebrate the state in which my grandmother grew up - it was her birthday on the 15th - so minnesota it was! the 3rd drawing is a complete knock off of natalie [if you hadn't guessed already]. i just was so inpired to draw the bearded iris in my yard and use a nib... of course her floral drawings are a million times better.... and she just came out w/ a gorgeous new print.
the 4th is my second attempt at a floor plan drawing. it's the apartment, as i remember it, of my grandma kaiser. she was my babysitter when i was a wee one... in downtown LA. and she was really like a second grandma. we made apple pies in her kitchen, and went to sambos [does anyone else remember that restaurant?]. we rode the bus alot. and painted our fingernails... and she had THE BEST costume jewelry ever. she was a tough lady - even in not so great neighborhoods no one was going to mess with her - but she was also incredibly kind. and generous to me...
so.... my goodness i am so overwhelmed by the response to underdog ! . you guys are really amazingly supportive and kind and down right wonderful. thank you! i respect all of you so much and to have you all say such things really really touches me!
i should really be grading so i leave you with a few things....
hoping for happy accidents blogs about amazing things. i have to save her posts for when i can actually go to each place. she mentioned busy being and abee this deer for you? [too expensive but terribly cute].
and wenders i'm so glad punk is not dead !
