erikleffingwell Another one from the other sketchbook. Screwed up the proportions on the right side, but am really happy with the rest.

erikleffingwell Started a second #sketchbook. Determined to learn how to draw people this time around, and using photos by a master of black and white to teach me subtle use of tone. #penandink #inkwash #henricartierbresson 1w

erikleffingwell You see my range, you can change me if you want
Just rearrange a few pieces around
If there's a way but the heart won't save me
If there's an easy so leave me, don't leave me
I think I could change and become what you want me
I think we could finally be done
I think I could change and become what you want me
I think we could finally be done

So you tell me where to be, I'll be there
You tell me where to be, I'll be there
You tell me where to be, I'll be there

erikleffingwell Great prints of my favorite comics for what seems like forever now. One of those books with Cages, 100%, Planetary, Scott Pilgrim and Daytripper that I'd hold up as classics that make love reading the things. #comics 2w

erikleffingwell Fan drawing of @radiomaru 's other awesome dog, Annie--seriously, I look forward to them popping up in my feed. Found an old bottle of permanent Blue ink, so played around with high chroma washes. Fun fun fun.

erikleffingwell Another one from @beaglefreedom 's feed, playing with stylized #penandink .
Been thinking a lot about the burst of drawing this past month, totaling more drawing than I've done since high school. Putting my finger on the discouragements that came mainly out of college, and the way so many of my teachers would push me away from what was working for me in respect of more professional methods--like working from photos or especially others' photos. Which would be fine, except when you are just trying to figure so many things out, it's easy to go down wrong paths and if that same instructor isn't there to guide you to your own path, it's easy to get lost. There's a lot to learn from the college structure of a CCAD with jumping from various media, teachers and techniques class to class, but without a constant mentor to help you pull these various things together, I feel like I lost what I enjoyed about it all. For the amount of money that is spent on an education without a clear career path to turn into, I definitely see where I'd benefit in having a biweekly session with a single instructor where the thrust is personal techniques and methods...

erikleffingwell Can't sleep, so I'm scrolling around to see what's near the new job: just a 7 minute drive from Magnolia Thunderpussy. Luckily I'm working on a super tight budget, otherwise I'd be there on way too many lunch breaks. 3w
