Back in NC for a week, so I will fucking draw

June 24, 2017

Great news, I got a new job. And I guess it's going well, because I'm going back to Brooklyn next week(which makes this three weeks of trips in just over a month). Which is great. Except that making a sustainable living seems to be cutting into my ability to draw whenever I fucking want to. So I made sure to hit up the NCAA Wednesday class this week before this next trip.

 

 

This is my second drawing of the first part of the long pose of the night. But what about the five minute warm ups? Or the first drawing of this pose? Well, I can go fuck myself that's how bad those drawings were. I'm pretty sure that the garbage can sighed in a very very sad way when I heaved them all in there. But this one with the hard aggressive ebony pencil marks I like.

 

 

Maybe you've noticed that I've really been digging using a toothbrush in drawing lately. Because I really am. This one was a little more challenging, as I'm trying to figure out how to get some more delicate lines in to balance the heavy black. I really like this one too. And I think that the garbage can is getting less sad.

 

 

At this point, I want to draw some backgrounds. Because I love drawing backgrounds. So I sat down on the couch in the room and faced one of the other artists. I haven't done something like this with a charcoal pencil in a while, and I'm happy(and a bit surprised) at how strong this turned out. The focus is strong, and I really like the overall composition of the drawing.

 

Once again, I'm really happy that finding this place was literally one of the first things that I did for my move here. And despite that the half mobile instructor/pal Osiris wasn't there, it was a needed relaxing and recharging night for Ken.

 

Now to start blocking out some western pages...
