Metro 4/29/08


Some repeats. I like drawing these with the Zig disposable rapidographs because they are filled with india ink that will not smear if your sketchbook falls into a pitcher of beer. Also, when I grow up I want to be as accurate and loose as Hokusai. As Richard Schmid says in his video

"Sometimes I like my paint to look like I threw it from across the room at the canvas, and it landed in exactly the right spot." Sargent compared painting to fencing, "have at you!", and I'm liking these analogies. Drawing is like chess to me sometimes, you make a move, and hope it works.
