i draw a lot. lately, when i draw, i find myself wanting to study the curves the human body makes when stretching or moving, because i think that those forms are so graceful and organic and really, quite perfect. so when i saw charles avery's work in artforum, an arrow flew into my heart and i fell madly in love:

the first image is the one i saw in artforum. the second-to-last image is one of my favorites. just a study of a woman standing, but it's exactly what i have been interested in studying on paper lately myself.

happy weekend, and a proper veteran's day greeting to all. i had grandfathers who were veterans and now that i am old enough to understand the day a little more, they are gone... but they are still on my mind today.

until next time—
