After My Tirade About Dogs

Why am I suddenly drawing so many bicycles?  Is it some kind of Freudian thing?

So, there have been two recent drawing of bicycles.  The last drawing I made, and this one:

20181229_204707Is it a wish fulfillment of my unfinished application to the Rhode Island School of Design?  As I think I mentioned, part of the application process was to draw boots and a bicycle.  I wonder if they still do have those drawings to do.  It can’t be that…it’s too long ago, and why now?

Here’s the sketch for the latest one.  So far, the finished work is coming out much differently.

The truth is?  They’s fascinatingly complex and simple at the same time.  Sort of like when I was drawing  jungle gyms

(So where is that jungle gym pic when  I need it?  I’m sorry to disappoint.  It’s probably buried somewhere on my old point and shoot camera, that I disposed of long ago.  I’ll have to retake the picture)

59th Street Bridge

This is a drawing of the bridge that spans the East River between Manhattan and Queens. It’s commonly called the 59th Street Bridge, but its official name is the Queensboro Bridge.

I wanted to add some interest to the background, so it wouldn’t be an ordinary picture of a structure.

I did this a couple of years ago. I’m presently working some more on Sentinel, and I hope to have an update, soon.
