Started a new sketchbook today. On the front I’ve written “Imagined” and on the back is “Real”. The goal is to merge the two, taking what I see in real life and combining it with the fantastic and invented.
Page of faces from this morning, working to use reference as a base to jump off and then deviate from in order to develop a “shorthand” for the features, rather than sticking too closely to the reference
Went to the science museum and drew from the taxidermy animals after a big lunch (I was stuffed and so were they). Overheard while I was there:
Little girl: “Why do people kill deer?”
Grandmother: “well, where do you think your hamburger comes from?”
The little girl stopped asking questions after that.
