what's online: rethinking real estate

a recent report came out saying that inclusionary zoning (ie, affordable housing in new construction) rarely if at all, affects housing prices and production. seeing these new condo buildings with apartments going for ridiculous prices, mixed housing at the very least, is welcome in these developments. i have little sympathy for developers as i imagine them complaining about affordable housing ruining their profit margins, while cutting as many corners as possible on their way to homogenizing these neighborhoods.

sva figure drawing workshop

for some reason, this week’s figure drawing turned into some kind of strange foot fetish drawing session. for the record, i am not a foot fetishist, however, i do not mind drawing feet. i mention this as some people are really anti-feet. i recall a session when teaching a class of highschool students to draw feet, at which point half the class freaked out. so maybe upon viewing these drawings, you dear reader are cringing. if so, my apologies.
