This image is so completely typical of my life drawing books. I just cannot seem to take the thing TOO seriously, henceforth the presence of little cartoon doodles. Above is Harry sporting what usually would be a star-stamped hat, and, for whatever odd reason, my boyfriend and I as cats. I believe at one point in the sketchbook, a particularly frail model of ours was wearing a pie for a hat.
I am so glad I caught this image. Rich has an absolutely fantastic smile, but one, sadly, that is rarely seen due to the seriousness and intensity of such drawing classes, and the length of many of the poses. One of the many perks of having a class with Chuck, however, is his great humor, and frequent entertaining stories. Rich was smirking amidst one of them at one point in the same moments that I was caricaturing his face. The above image was the result, and it is one of my favorites from the semester because of it.
