"Amelia doesn’t nurse for very long before falling back to sleep. Catherine gives her to Connor and he takes her once again with trepidation and awe at her smallness. If he wasn’t so afraid of dropping her he could probably hold her in one hand. Instead, he keeps her tucked in the crook of his left elbow with his right hand covering her as additional support. He can’t take his eyes from her for more than a moment at a time as Diana helps Catherine up onto shaky legs and aids in getting her out of her clothing and bathing her. She makes quick work of stripping off the sheets from the bed and replacing them with fresh ones. By the time Catherine is dressed in a clean shift and her hair is braided over one shoulder she is more than ready to rest again. Connor brings their daughter to her when she is settled comfortably. The sight of the happy couple smiling at each other and then at their firstborn is the last thing Diana sees as she leaves the room and heads home in the first light of dawn." -Misguided, chapter 26 “Mentor”

Tuesday Tips - FOLDSMore on folds today. I will eventually cover all types of folds but today is about simple folds on everyday clothes (t-shirt, jeans). The key is to know what to expect and then applying what you know to simplify what you see in front of you (when life drawing). A lot of the folds dynamics on shirts and jeans come from the “memory” of the fabric itself. Denim is thick and is likely to keep some form of wrinkles or folds around certain areas (knees). A lot of zig-zag patterns around the knee is very likely. When pushed down on the feet, the denim fabric will bunch up and combine with the zig-zag pattern. Shirts and t-shirts will react to the twist and pull of the arms and torso. Identify where the pull (or tension) is coming from and work from it. I tend to draw the seams because they clearly express the volumes underneath.Norm

CEMENT ECLIPSES @ CHIAPAS MEXICO

Artist Isaac Cordal (tumblr / facebook) - “With the simple act of miniaturization and thoughtful placement, Isaac Cordal magically expands the imagination of pedestrians finding his sculptures on the street. Cement Eclipses is a critical definition of our behavior as a social mass. The art work intends to catch the attention on our devalued relation with the nature through a critical look to the collateral effects of our evolution. With the master touch of a stage director, the figures are placed in locations that quickly open doors to other worlds. The scenes zoom in the routine tasks of the contemporary human being”.
