I don’t know about you guys, but I LOVED Google’s homage to Cézanne today. It got me thinking about art and expression and that got me thinking, “Hey, I like to draw – why don’t I try to, but like for real?” So, I grabbed my handy sketch pad and set out to find a subject worthy of my creative expression. I chose this picture of my gentleman friend and me that I keep on my nightstand:
I decided to go with a Sharpie as my drawing utensil because it’s bold – just like me. Now, I took one semester of drawing in high school and it didn’t go so well…if I remember correctly, the teacher said I had a lot of potential and not enough dedication to developing it. Anyway, one of the things I do remember about the class was that you should spend more time looking at your subject than your paper. So I tried to do that…the results were horrific:
I added Kosbie to the picture and I think she ended up being the best part about it. Maybe I’ll stick to what I’m good at…doodles and stick figures.
Cézanne, you’re the man.
