Drawing on Location

For the past few weeks I've been working on an assignment for my Drawing on Location class (in case you didn't see my previous post about it) where we were to choose a city block and do a series of drawings of three businesses on that street. I chose 25th street between 6th and 7th avenues since there are a number of great vintage outlets and crafty places to shop. I finished the last of the drawings this past week and and I can finally and officially say that I am done! (and our last class is tomorrow, phewf!) Actually, that goes for everything I had to do this semester, so I'm feeling really great at the moment. These are the final five drawings that I've been working on since Thanksgiving...

Expect a post within the next few days explaining what's to come in my Thesis project and an update on my iPad app-making experience...very exciting stuff!

Four down, two to go.

In the past few weeks I've managed to complete two more six-word-memoir spreads...That leaves two more spreads to go for this semester! One is currently in progress and I have a few ideas for the final piece. If it weren't for all of those other pesky classes I'd probably feel pretty darn good.. but alas, I have too much on my plate - not a surprise considering there are two weeks remaining in the semester. Let's keep this post positive though.

I think it's pretty obvious that one of these hits very close to home for me, I'll leave that for you to figure out which.
