I’m looking through my old posts and enjoying them, regardless of their “quality.” It motivates me to post regularly again, especially since, despite its intended looseness, this journal is my most focused and full collection of work.
Right now I’m going through my backups and taking stock of my personal Flash and programming projects, making plans for an update to my site. I have several Flash “toys” that I’ll make available somewhere, and maybe build a few more. I’d forgotten how much fun they are to make.
I’m fortunate to meet passionate and generous people, who put my hopes so close-at-hand.
Sketches on the Metrolink train to Azusa. Sat across from a talkative trucker who would glare distrustfully at any sudden noise.
And a few drawings from Saturday’s Sketchcrawl:
Copied from Bridgman’s Guide to Drawing from Life. The examples range from naturalistic to actually mechanical, with wheels and levers, to express human anatomy. The focus on the back is relatively brief, which I guess is technically fair, though I’d hoped for more. I’ll find more, though (“These drawings are from Internet, Mother.”)
Starting another series, I’m reconsidering the focus for this set of daily drawings. It’s good for me to draw with or without a purpose, though having a subject ready can help when I have no ideas. So for now, I’m going to go with anatomy studies: specifically back and neck, because I feel like that’s something I focus on, without know hardly anything about.
