busting out the big newsprint pads
I recently got a part-time gig teaching art at Cordovan School of the Arts. It's a lot of fun showing kids how to do stuff like paint a watercolor sunset with a rhino's silhouette in front of it and trying to explain things like why construction lines are necessary and why you shouldn't draw them sharpie-dark.
One of the perks is that I get to do some free figure drawing every week, and I finally decided to buy myself a big newsprint pad, some Conte crayons, and nupastel sticks. It feels good to be drawing like this again, and I think after going through a sketchbook per month for the last nine months, I'm excited to pump out some portfolio pieces.
