Happy hump-day friends! This semester has me right where I love to be: sitting at my desk drawing. I've done perspective drawings for clients before, but knew that since I hadn't been through the very semester I am in right now, that there were major problems with the way I created a drawing of a room. I am excited to start from scratch so that I can learn the right process and approach to hand drawing and drafting. My professor compared it last night to working with a recipe for a meal. She said that once we are so comfortable with the "ingredients" to a good drawing, we won't have to pay so much attention to the recipe anymore. I HAVE to use recipes when cooking because, darn it, I just can't get the hang of it. But drawing...I think I'll one day be able to do it without cracking the "cook book" open;)
Here are a few of my drawings sans training:
In the meantime, I'll be reading my professor's new blog: Drawing + Hand.
She's going to be posting tips, articles, and anything else related to hand drawing on it! I love this professor because it is obvious that she is passionate about what she does and the field she is in. It makes her a wonderful teacher!

Till next time... xo
