Part two

So, I finished the full-sized drawing of Man,Dog, Phone, and Parrot. I guess I could add chain link fence to the title, but that would be too long.

I cheated. I started to draw the stairs, got them so out of perspective, that I just decided to make a cubist design out of the background. I just spoiled the illusion that I’m a really creative artist, didn’t I?

I’m taking a leave of absence from work. With all the physical and emotional stress, it just seemed a good idea, at least better than quitting, which I was on the verge of doing.

In some ways, the story would make a good comedy. Like all good comedies, it includes flatulence. It also asks the profound question, is it okay to call out of work with gas?

But I digress..this is supposed to be an art blog…and speaking of this….

I really should go back to drawing people. I guess I got away from it, it seemed too much like work.

I had decided to do landscapes, thinking they would capture a mood. I think I’ve run that one into the ground.

So, in my time off, I plan to do some drawings of people. For instance the one in the header is “Halloween”. Can’t do too much right now, because as usual, I’m running out of money and paper at the same time. Both issues are soon to be relieved.

Then of Course, there’s the occasional kitten.

The Idea That Would Not Die…

I finished the self-portrait in very little time.  I thought it would take several days, and I would fill in with humorous, anecdotal experience with my portraiture education and professional portraiture stories.  Like the blond boy with glasses who requested I make him look like Fonzi.  If you don’t know who Fonzi is, you have my admiration.

So, here’s the self-portrait.  Plan to use it as  a logo, sample, etc.

So, now what?  I really should be getting ready for this designer/art fair, but there’s not a lot to do until some items I ordered arrive.  With a hint of fall chilliness in the air, I’m returning to the IDEA THAT WOULD NOT DIE.
