I currently teach observational drawing at two universities. I enjoy drawing with the class. Tonight we worked on hatching and I banged this drawing out in a couple of hours. It helps the students understand process and composition. It also helps me work through my own thought process and gives me the ability to contribute to the class in a more visceral way.
Two hour class drawing. By yours truly.
Tonight we worked on reductive drawing only. Students start out by applying charcoal evenly over their paper then using a kneaded eraser they essentially erase the drawing using reduction methods. Here's what I drew with them.
I was recently invited to take part in a skate deck show. Here is my submission. I was raised in a Catholic upbringing and remembered that if I had ever become a Pro I was going to have a St. Christopher deck. He is the patron saint of travel. Always thought it was appropriate and sacreligious at the same time due to grinding off the image from doing board slides. Anyway, I did it, 1988 Mike Loop can now rest at ease.
