I like drawing the backs of things, the parts of products that aren’t meant to be seen on a regular basis. I did this drawing a few weeks ago, and now I can’t remember what body part or accessory it actually is!
I used to do self portraits all the time…haven’t done one in a while and what I notice most is that my skin has changed. More wrinkles, more folds. In my 30′s I still looked like I was in my twenties. I think I’m catching up with myself and starting to look my age. Yikes.
When I went back to West Virginia for a week over the Labor Day holiday I didn’t bring my computer, and I didn’t do ANY work. It was nice. I actually drew for my own amusement and I had a great time doing it. This week I’ll be posting some of the things I drew. This is the woodpile out near the tree line and the fancy new play structure Grandpa Francis built for Milo.
From our recent trip to Brooklyn. Just like old times, I took him for a walk along Ocean Parkway and the steady rush of cars put him right to sleep. He napped in the front yard while I sat on the stoop and sketched. It was a nice afternoon.
Now that Milo is addicted to Dan Zanes & Fred Garbo DVD’s, it’s much easier to draw him. He actually sits still for extended periods! On mornings that Julie needs to sleep in, Milo and I eat poached eggs and watch DVD’s.Note the vacant stare. Also note the slumping posture, clearly inherited from his dad. Sorry, kid.
