My students finished a unit on the artists, Chuck Baird. They made illustrations of the American Sign Language of animals. I made an exemplar of my octopus. They picked an animal, one color construction paper, white pencil, and black pencil.
After a day of school I'm usually in no mood to draw. After perusing some other sketch blogs I've become reinvigorated and inspired to draw, draw, draw. Since I've been drawing more I see that my work does need more...well, um...work. I want to develop my style and techniques. Also, check me out in tomkarpe.tumblr.com.
