sketching people | SIS I '14


The streets of New York are filled with funny, stylish, and often captivating subjects. Whether hawking their wares, lounging in the park, or riding the subway, a replication of these transient life-forms builds speed and also tests self-esteem. Take too long and your latest victim may catch wind of your scrawls. Here Lauren fearlessly takes to the streets and Jesse warms up with a book of stock photos.

brush strokes | SIS I '14



Mina wields her brush with super hero power. Or it would seem. This summer brought with it a more thoughtful process  Too much red? quite possibly - a carry over from her previous work. Yet now within a blur of more muted brush strokes and newly mixed color, Mina begins to delve beneath the surface, and negative space is cast as a placid foil to her gravity-defying jabs of boldness.

sketching l drawing s'14


As we come to the end of a semester, let the sketchbook be your laboratory - a place of great brilliance and great failings. Mediocrity is when there is no deviation from one page to the next. Whether doodling, furthering ideas, or continuing class assignments, enjoy the process.
