Dragging my butt through a pile of gravel

Thats kinda how school feels this year.
I don't like it too much.

Aaaanyways. I did something neat on Monday. I took my friend's laptop and a mouse to life drawing and I used ms paint to draw through the whole session. It's pretty difficult to draw with the mouse but I think I'm pretty good with it by now after using it so much during class, drawing with ms paint when I should be researching or something. I like to impair my ability to draw. I might be wrong but I think that it forces me to pay better attention and I draw better. Also I'm less anxious about drawing well so the result is usually better. At CSSSA, Corny had us draw with our non dominant hand sometimes and one time we drew with three foot sticks with drawing stuff attached to the ends.

Here's some drawings from the thing.

I hope CalArts likes these. I'm putting them in my portfolio.

great stuff- and the last one is indeed a favourite.

I did enjoy drawing with my left hand at csssa and was quite suprised with the results. (and at times liked it better than what I was drawing with my right!)

I'm jealous that you got to use the three foot stick thing. Corny talked of it, but our group never did get to do it in the end. :(

Your portfolio is going to be awesome!!! :D Have you decided on what size case thing you're sending in? I really need to pick up my production rate... as well as going on aim MORE.
