Temple of Dendur - Hand-drawn Animation at the Met

This October, I had the pleasure of designing and running a drawing workshop at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, as part of the International Drawing and Cognition Conference, hosted jointly by Columbia University Teachers College, the Drawing Research Network, and the Met. Here is one of the resulting animations from our session:

The WWW Drawing Workshop, held at Penn State University's Stuckeman School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture from March 29-31, 2013, yeilded this brilliant video from Virtual Beauty.  Instant inspiration at:

Open Source Drawing Software

From Skencil to Inkscape, open source drawing software has been in our midst for years, with dozens of variants on the theme, and hundreds of code contributors worldwide.  One among many, Alchemy offers "an open drawing project aimed at exploring how we can sketch, draw, and create on computers in new ways. Alchemy isn’t software for creating finished artwork, but rather a sketching environment that focuses on the absolute initial stage of the creation process. Experimental in nature, Alchemy lets you brainstorm visually to explore an expanded range of ideas and possibilities in a serendipitous way."  As alternatives to Illustrator or Photoshop, most come up a few tools shy of satisfying, but as screen-based sketchbooks, they are great to have in the mix.

The Drawing Suite

Reading as a curated website that captures the sleek and transdisciplinary flavor of contemporary drawing, The Drawing Suite brings together an array of drawing talent from across Europe, with an Irish focus.  Profiled artists include Brian Fay and his stunning drawings of cracked masterworks, and the alluring digital drawings of Kate Smith.

A Gap in Time and Shameless Self-Promotion

While tempted to apologize for a lapse in blog, I defer to Cory Archangel's compilation of delinquent blogger's excuses instead.

I am currently an artist in residence at the Fowler Project Space in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, and working on a new series of drawings that reference the architectural features of this industrial neighborhood in transition.  There will be an open studio and reception on July 12, from 6-9.

The drawing below was started in the Columbia studio, but has changed to reflect the color and texture of Brooklyn in summer.

Big Ball of Drawing

It reminds me so much of The Prisoner, but with a graphic twist! See full coverage of Karina Smigla-Bobinski’s Ada, here, with more here.
