Valparaiso University Department of Art held their annual (and free!) Draw-a-thon yesterday which focuses on alternative drawing processes.
We did a surrealist method called Exquisite Corpses in which a piece of paper is folded in thirds and artists draw either a head, a torso, or feet without having seen the rest of the drawing then pass the sketch to the next artist until it is a wild creature.
I drew Ghost Lady and she happens to be my favorite, so I brought her home and I’m going to frame her and put her in my office.
I learned that I want an art studio. And maybe, even if I’m reluctant to admit it because I don’t really believe it, maybe I’m a little bit of an artist on the inside.
