finally some sketchbook updates / i can draw again

in case you were wondering, i can draw again. both my hands for the most part are healed. the tendons in the left are a bit out of wack, but they are coming around (thanks to the occupational therapy finger gym), and the right is fine and dandy. some things i can once again do: draw, ride my bike, give people the finger, and dress myself.

after a fairly sedentary summer, i am back doing all sorts of things once more, including updating the <a href="http://www.eben.com/sketchbook/&quot;;sketchbook section (the portfolio is on the to-do list). so if you haven’t been in a while, check it out now, and i promise that i have not put up any new photos of my finger.

sva figure drawing workshop

figure drawing is back, and after this summer, i noticed that i am a little obsessed with drawing hands. on a health note, after three hours of drawing, my hand was quite tired (wow, that sounds dirty when written next to a figure drawing. the statement, however, remains true…perverts!).

i noticed my observational drawing was more realistic than in the past. drawing with my right hand forced me to use greater concentration, and now back with the left, i seem to have kept that up. don’t fret, i am sure i will get back to all my bad drawing habits again in no time.

hurricane katrina relief

our thoughts go out to all those affected by hurricane katrina. having family in new orleans, this catastrophe hits close to home (fortunately, my relatives are safe and sound). it’s difficult to read reports and watch the news and still try to go on with a normal day, there doesn’t seem to be a lot one can do. if you are looking to help, there are a number of places accepting donations:
