creative sketching assignment | SIS II '18

With no preconceived idea, students flung ink onto pages of their sketchbook, and later worked a drawing that utilized the splatters.

start of the semester quote

"The dripping...well, if it happens, it happens; it does not take anything from the work. The dripping just proves that you were not trying to control the work, but the work was developing by itself and if it drips, it's a natural part in the evolution of the work." - Keith Haring

different views | life drawing '18

A few basics when creating a focal point: 1) If it's a portrait, keep the clothing to a minimum. 2) Leave negative space around your center of interest. 3) Employ perspective to show depth.

continuous line contours | life drawing S'18

I was sketching a man sitting across from me on the subway, when the woman to my left, pointed, and yelled for all to hear, "SHE'S DRAWING YOU!" I laugh, when retelling this scenario. I get their fear. Yes, the assignment can be embarrassing, and uncomfortable, but most often New Yorkers are too preoccupied to even notice.
