Day 2

Continuing the 5-day posting of my "not-current work"

 

On my second day I am posting my graphite works from my last year of high school when I was OCD with detail. I thought perfecting photorealistic skill was it!
I am thankful to my college professors for showing me otherwise.

 
 

1. Bicycle and 2. Interior and Self Portrait- RISD home exam drawings that I had to fold in 4 for shipping and was not allowed to get back as a punishment for getting in.

Day 1 of sharing work development

 

I have been 'art challenged' on facebook to post three works of art a day for 5 days and each day invite a new artist to do the same. This is a pleasant opportunity to look back at my work development and share what is not my current work.

I would like to begin with some illustration work i did in high school.

"Minh Mang reigned from 1820 to 1840. Construction on his tomb began the year of his reign and was still incomplete upon his death. It fell to his son and successor Thieu Tri to complete his final resting place, with the help of about ten thousand workers and artisans.

About 40 monuments comprise Minh Mang’s royal tomb, all on an oval 44-acre lot surrounded by a high wall. The complex is bisected down the middle by a straight path about 2,300 feet long, along which the monuments are arranged."
