It's been a while since I've written here. I updated the little section of text on the left side of this blog that was supposed a general 'about me'. The last thing it had said was that I was starting my 2nd year of grad. school, which was a shade over a year ago. In the interim, I've still been drawing from time to time. Mostly just very rough, crude sketches, but occasionally finishing something that I like. A year or so ago, I began to really appreciate - the Line. Just the idea of lines, forming the shapes of things - outlines, silhouettes. Crisp, sharp lines with variations: thin/thick, smooth/rough, fluid/abrupt. More to be quick, because who has time for painting and coloring, I also started appreciating the sharp contrasts of b&w a lot more. So these two are examples of what came out of that. What else...I've become conscious of the fact that I dislike superlatives, so I will be trying to avoid them in writing.
