What she means: why do people give writers such a bad rep? Why are people convinced that we sit around doing nothing all day and just stare at a computer screen and one day words magically appear and then they magically turn into a book and then we never have to write ever again because they think publishing a book means you’re set for life and can travel the world and never have to work again? Where does the notion that creating art is lazy come from when it used to be the most celebrated form of work in history? Why do people think that that writing isn’t a Real Job™ and just a hobby, and that writers somehow freeload their way through life to avoid the Real World™ and that all writers somehow live in a disconnected utopian fantasy and need to grow up? Why? Where does that come from?
i re-read the assignment, and i’m supposed to do THREE tonal drawings using different media, traced on trace paper. i’m keeping the first one even though i didn’t really trace it (the instructor said we “could” trace so i marked a few key places on the sketchpad but you really cannot trace through sketch paper without a light board) and it’s on sketch paper
first one was done using a very low-quality black colored pencil, second done with gray and black copics, third was done with ink pens
An anon asked me on my other blog if I knew where this picture was. I had no idea, I probably deleted it from here and my laptop, but while I was cleaning up my external hard drive I saw it on one of the folders. So, if mystery anon still wanted it, there it is.
