My new favorite thing to draw is collars. I've also been doing a lot of drawings of people looking up and views looking up from under the head. It's difficult to get right because of the foreshortened perspective. All the relationships between facial features change drastically from looking straight on. Looking up also emphasizes different shapes of the landscape of the head, making it feel like it's a completely different form, almost. 8.5'' x 11''

I like to use a loose line. I've heard it called "travelling lines" which are lines drawn as a sort of searching for the right line. This type of drawing is also used in prelimary stages for working out composition and design. I like drawing like this as preliminary searching and for their own right. It's got a lot of vitality and personality. Giacometti comes to mind. I think also, there is a heavy influence from the look of wire frames used in computer graphics. 5.5'' x 8.5''.

This is a sketch of a dog I did, from life, in a cafe. I never used to be into animals. But I recently studied with a professor who specialized in animal illustration whose interest in animals has influenced me. Also, a former girlfriend had the greatest, most lively Cairn. She was also into Pokemon, which I think is a lot about harmony with the animal world. Franz Marc, expressionist painter also comes to mind. Around 5.5'' x 8.5''.
