Last night's long pose with Tulee

Made a bunch of awkward drawings last night - and my question is - What makes something MORE than just a drawing? Also, how do you ruin a drawing? I’ve started a list. Tulee held the pose below for 5 sessions, each 20 minutes long.

 
 

Should also probably mention that the air quality is so bad here in San Francisco that government buildings and schools were shut down today. For everyone not in California, this is a horrible, horrible fire. Here are a couple signs in my neighborhood…

September 2018

This past week has been a test of endurance! Wednesday I finished my first stained glass window, Thursday night I worked on a 3 hour long pose of Tendai and topped the evening off with my friend Natalie at the Lone Palm. Then I tended bar at the 500 club Friday night, attended a wedding in Oakland Saturday, worked happy hour at the 5 on Sunday and started Monday morning off with a triptych of 15 minute drawings. Tomorrow I officially start my second window! more pictures to come :)

A day indoors - Mission District, San Francisco

Today I stayed home, drew an old napping dog named Sparky & finally found a home for some stained glass my dad made. The bottom tulip piece was from an old building on Chicago's South Side that he re-leaded and the piece above was made with antique leaded glass. I am very happy to have these here with me in San Francisco.

Drawing Hands & Feet At 23rd Street Studio

Happy to be home and drawing in SF! Signed up for a great figure drawing class at 23rd Street Studio. If you're looking for a nice studio with great models in San Francisco look into Michael's class! I spent the morning up in the loft drawing with a birds eye view.  http://23rdstreetstudio.com/
