Zachary bought me two sketchbooks from the art supply store and ordered some color pencils that will arrive in a couple of days. I'm going to start drawing again.
It's really hard to think of what to draw. I keep drawing the same things and they bore me now. I want to find inspiration in something new.
A few years ago, Zachary bought me an anatomy book. I hardly cracked it open. In fact, two months ago was when I tried reading and sketching at the same time. The language of the book is very technical. It looks more like it was written for med school but, my god, this is what art students have to read if they want to draw proportionately accurate human figures.
I think I spent half an hour reading about the skull and drawing it out. I found myself enjoying the mental exercise and it wasn't as tedious as I'd thought it'd be. Tomorrow, I think I'll spend some time at Floyd's just sketching on my smaller sketchbook. I'll bring the anatomy book with me, too. I'll do that for a couple hours and then practice some stuff on the laptop.
Woke up and it's already 77 degrees inside. The weather forecast predicts 92-degree temperature today. I need to set the plans in motion so I can get out of here and find air conditioning asap.
Awww, one person bought my t-shirt
. I just made a KILLING off that one.
