Art is work, but art should also be fun. I'm ok with you stuggling from time to time, but especially in your sketchbook you should feel the freedom to play.
I love this guy's (Scott C.) work because it is playful and so different than how I typically work. I don't know if you have noticed that I have a book of his work in the classroom, but I would prod you to look through it just because it is fun.
At any rate, I know you know I am really really trying to get you to build a habit of daily work in your sketchbook/life, and to see that little bits of time can be piled up to add up to something much more significant over a period of days.
You don't need to spend hours the night before something is due in order to get all of that work done.
Since I only see you in class twice this week we are going to take both days and work on the same page so that I can see how the image develops.
Today's directions: take one of the below images and draw it out with pencil lines only. No shading, no color, only pencil lines/shapes.
It doesn't matter which image and it shouldn't take you all of the allotted 15 minutes, but begin asap.
Remember, pencil lines only for today. Have fun.
