Here are three 3 hour illustration from the past week and a half. I didn't finish them in exactly three hours, but pretty close. These were very fun to do and got me to think faster. They were all random articles handed out at the beginning of class (8:30 am) so it was a surprise every time, and at that time, its a little difficult to get your head thinking as creatively as you would like.
this first one is about the terminator gene that was developed to prevent plants from producing seeds. I thought of female plants cutting and tying each others fallopian tubes.
This article talked about how Rwanda is building its country's economy by weaving baskets and selling them to Macy's.
This last one is about Josef Mengele, a Nazi scientist who was on a mission to make the perfect race out of twins. He fled to a small town in Brazil where he continued his experiments on twins and now, one in every 5 pregnancies in that town, are twins.overall, I think the three hour assignments were great, tought me to think fast and cut time consuming habits out of my process.
Heres a three hour figure painting from thursday's class. I had fun.
Also, there is a student art sale coming up on the 31st which will hopefully bring in some money so I can take my girlfriend out to a decent meal for valentines day. lastly, sketchbook 25 is almost done, so ill be posting scans from that soon.
