Studio work day #1: printmaking dept.
[Insert stereotypical image of 15 hipsters in a classroom]
Someone is already drawing full frontal dick portraits in response to “invent your alter ego” assignment. This will be a good class.
Damn check out what’s happening here on Sat September 27! $6. 9PM.
All big deal shit! Flyer by the amazing Kawther Fakhra.
so excited so excited so excited so excited
All day today.
So. Just ran out of my building, ripped my raincoat off, splashed in all the puddles, strolled, pranced, and basically took a shower in the rain.
Best thing I could’ve done for myself after (probably) the shittest five months of my life (so far..)
When you start looking like your first girl crush. Still workin on that attitude though.
Sunday: lying on my tummy watching my pen glide along paper, leaving behind its trail of ink.
Officially home. Every muscle in my body will hurt tomorrow, but I’M NOT SORRY.
Shout out to Malportado Kids and DJ Gooby ( seeeemcha ) for keepin the butts poppin all night.
Nothing like desperately needing to write your thoughts down while you’re taking a walk and conveniently being able to get a little notebook from down the street, sit down in front of a patch of grass, and unleash.
Neighbor insists on bellowing You Raise Me Up in a bad opera voice + my wisdom tooth is about to pop out of my swollen gums + dire state of melancholy, BUT I’m actually working :)
Beeeeeeeeeads in the making.
I’ve been ranting here a lot lately.
These were made yesterday. Just playing, really. I need to learn how to imply more weight/force on knees and ankles.
Each were ten minute poses I think? I should start labeling them..
At a life drawing class.
It gets increasingly uncomfortable when only female models get hired to model for this class, obviously to cater to the majority of the artists who show up (middle aged men, of course). It’s one thing for them to sit there quietly drawing, and another when they take the initiative to tell the woman what to do, point out if/when she messes up the timer, and whether or not they like her pose. Just shut the fuck up and draw.
In all the classes I’ve taken, I’ve never heard anyone say a word to a male model while posing.
So…pretty sure I ate some glass beads last night??
