Blind Contour First Friday September: FREE TIME
ways to pass the time
i would have colored this, but quite frankly, it's late and i have to start moving tomorrow, so i'm not feelin' too driven. i probably would have given it another try too, except for this upcoming weekend of moving fun.
i'm a bookworm, so whenever i'm free, i try to read as much as i can. i'm also a bit of a workaholic, so, i have had the habit of using up all of my days off from work to take classes. so i thought it appropriate to do a blind contour of all of my books that i have to read for existential counseling. in a way, i thought it most appropriate to use such an unstructured and vague art technique as blind contour drawing to illustrate such a vague set of overintellectual ideas as existential counseling.
i thought i'd try drawing bigger, so i spilled out over onto the next page, which is why there's a bit of spine showing in the scan. i also admit to a bit of value cheating-since i knew i wouldn't be coloring the piece, i darkened some places so you can differentiate the three books a bit better. hope it helps.
