.it is called paying attention.

this last week or so i have been working on a pen and ink drawing that is taking up most of my time. well, work takes up half and then sleeping takes the other half... so the "creative time" has been mostly consumed by this drawing. no... i am not going to show a sneak peak. that's cheating! you all must wait. but! never be sad because i have a older drawing here to share instead.

this was actually a study of a eye ball. the class was for illustration the teacher had given us some clay and a ping pong ball. you then had to make the eye lids. well, that was not as interesting as making a whole little character! so that is what i did instead. i made a little guy with one large eye. it would have been more practical (to my grade really) to spend more emphasis on the eye, but drawing this was too much fun! not to mention i would have tossed the study of the eye and instead i have kept this.

i should have finished it more and maybe eventually i will. along with all the other stacks of drawings and things i should really finish. who has time now and days to actually finish things. not me...
who knows, maybe i will come back to this.

  1. Haha! Well, I'd give that an A+. Your little cyclops critter is so much more interesting than an eyeball. Why, he even has a chapeau! Quite the dandy.

    Can't wait to see your new pen and ink!
