CRAFT


HOLIDAY JEWELS


Making the most of my holiday free time, I have made a little collection of mixed media necklaces. They use silk cord, silver chain, and raw minerals and stones like pyrite, marble, and turquoise. Find them at Fabricate soon...and check out that foxy hat/scarf model!

NEW WORK


After a quarter of grad school and painting, here is a little summary of what I have done. I'm eager for the holiday break. Lots of time to think about what to do next...

CURRENT OBSISSION


INTERIOR DESIGNS

Mary Katrantzou
Ever since Alexander McQueen’s Spring 2010 collection, London has offered us symmetrical digital prints of organic textures and geometric shapes. Digital print designer Mary Katrantzou suggests a new approach: looking toward interior design for inspiration and printing opulent lifestyle spaces on her beloved mini-dress silhouettes. Katrantzou’s interiors resemble SketchUp 3D modeling and are met with flowing curtain embellishments to create a beautiful trompe l’œil. Regardless of intention, Mary’s prints cunningly address the growing multimedia concerns of today’s materialistic upper class. The social compulsion to show off one’s interior space as a way to update and/or elevate one’s status has reached new heights of Bret Easton Ellis-esque antipathy. Generic wealth never looked so fresh.

LAST CLASS

So, this is it. This is what the whole class ended with. I like to think the development was good. My teacher was amazing and I can't wait for another class. The model in this last one was super muscular and quite a challenge to draw...


The quick poses...Then (duh) then longer poses.

BABYSITTING THE KIDDIES


My sister needed to run some errands, and I needed to practice my sketching. It's nice to have such willing models...but kids MOVE SO QUICKLY. xoxo


I wanted to practice drawing faces, and since they have such adorable ones...

CLASS 4 - BACK TO WOMEN/HANDS


Started out with the usual 2 min. poses....



Front and Back...that's a new one...


First study of the hand. It's quite big, like the face.


Last 30 min. drawing of the day. The proportions were all off so it looked a little better with a few folds in the page.
