Frito Pie and My Saddle Oxfords

11x14in. mixed media, cut-outs.
I have mentioned before that I have been going thru my old college day’s stuff, well this is one that I cleaned up. This was a drawing class at Ottawa taught by Pal Wright with models.  I was hooked at the time on using a Koh-I-Noor Rapidograph No.00 Yellow head(one could tell a true user of these fine costly instruments, they had a black spot on their lips from sucking the ink at the tips to get them flowing again). It amazes me when I look at these drawings at the details I captured…gosh my eyes were sooooo much better then. The deal in class was we did a type of couture drawings, we were able to pick up and look, place and continue. Later in my 3rd floor penthouse/dorm studio (nicely lit desk in a shared room) I would embellish with color and cut out sections and place on fine colored papers. Needless to say imagination made them quite interesting, especially since we couldn’t fit a Chevy or Sonic sign in our classroom. Being fair though, it was my 3rd drawing class and one does get bored…and boredom in my case normally lead to creativity. Actually the most unusual thing about this drawing…the model was nude…I must have been thinking about car hops and lunch 😉

  1. i’m enjoying your humor! thanks for stopping by/subscribing, and thanks for reminding me about those yellow rapidograph – ‘don’t shake it over the drawing’ days!

    yes, i miss my keen eyesight from long ago, but i am glad to tap into whatever whim hits and run with it til i’m finished!

  2. love the perspective! I have been taking a painting class and am looking forward to trying out some unusual perspectives too – you may have been the nudge I needed to see!

thanks for feedback/comments
