This post is mainly a “I’m not dead yet” update. Also, I wanted to get the last post out of the way. I couldn’t stand looking at the ugly experiment and I’m in denial that it came from me. A lot of professors have told me to save my work no matter how old or horrible it looks, so I can look back and see the progress, but some works simply drive me nuts!

Anyways, while rearranging the studio space, I found the drawing above. To be honest, I don’t even remember what I was trying to achieve with it. However, I feel like it’s going somewhere, so for now it’s a keeper. I like the grotesque texture. It reminds me of something yucky like blisters and bug bites.

These projects are coming along slowly but surely. I’m finally at the detailing stage, which is tedious but meditative.  I think I’ll start part two of the portrait, so the diptych can look consistent.

As for the sloppy, messy experimental drawing that I couldn’t stand to look, I’ve turned it into some marker experiments. They were a lot of fun, but I have no idea what to do with them. Right now, they’re just sitting around looking pretty and collecting dust. 

Lately, I’ve been doodling obsessively more so than usual. I get so carried away with doing warmup drawings that I’m starting to neglect all other projects. It’s a gift and a curse.
