Day 121

I had a lot of fun with today's self-portrait drawing.  My good buddy Robert Wimer hung around and created a fabulous time-lapse video of the drawing process, which I'm pleased to share here.

It was a bit of a surreal experience to be filmed while making art.  I've seen many different videos of an artist sketching or drawing, so it's very exciting to now have my own!

I was also very happy to carve out a longer block of time for art-making today.  With the demands of everyday life, sometimes it's very difficult to squeeze in enough time to make a nice quality artwork.  However, one of my goals for this project is certainly being met: I AM making an artwork each and every day, regardless of how much (or little) time is actually invested.  I will say, however, that it was a blast spending a little over an hour making this drawing!

  2. That is great, thanks for sharing! My 4 year old granddaughter watched it with me, and she asked "why is he drawing a mean man"? When you finished she said "well, it's not a mean man anymore". Interesting...a 4 year old's take on the process.

  3. I really like this process..I'm going to have to try this!
