This week I chose a painting that stood out to me more than any other painting this year–Jesse Minott’s “Shoreline.” To me, this picture captures everything I daydream about during math or history lectures. Most of my notebooks have drawings of palm trees and shorelines, tigers, or just whatever I can imagine. Often times, when […]Read more "Week Thirteen: Artist Interview – Jesse Minott"
This week I had the great pleasure of meeting Austin Maud. As I was walking through the galleries I came up to him and asked if he needed an interview. Although he had already done so, he was kind enough to let me interview him anyways. Austin is Sophomore here at CSULB and is majoring […]Read more "Week Thirteen: Classmate Interview – Austin Maud"

Having drawn people, myself, I understand how difficult it can be to draw […]Read more "Week Eleven: Artist Interview – Portrait of Victor"

The first thing I noticed about her when we started talking was her 9 3/4 necklace. I immediately got the reference. I thought it was funny because I also saw a […]Read more "Week Eleven: Classmate Interview – Diana Garcia"
For this week’s project, we got to pick what we wanted to do. I chose to draw, but not like I usually would. I picked up large, black construction paper from CSULB’s art store (for a great price too). If you click on the tab, “My Work,” you will see all my drawings of US […]Read more "Week Eleven: Choose Your Own – Black & White"
