Double whammy! Here’s another update.
Since graduating, I’ve been at home in Sheboygan figuring out my next step. I’m grateful to be with my family and examine career possibilities. Art-wise, I’ve been attending weekly figure drawing sessions with a great local group I’ve been interning with, the Sheboygan Visual Artists. It’s been a while since I’ve taken a figure class, and I now remember how much I love it. Here are some recent drawings.
Also, some plein-air painting, fancy artist speak for I-can’t-afford-a-studio painting. This one was done at the Kohler Andre State Park on a very windy day.
I’ve made a couple trips to Chicago to visit friends Gameli and Jen as well. Gameli and I are teaming up on another animation project. Making Graduation was truly one of the best experiences I’ve had, so we’re hoping to make another film we can be proud of. Rather than dealing with the existential dilemma of the post-grad, this yet untitled film will focus on an astronaut and his childhood memories of a lost friend. It’s currently in the editing phase, and I’m reminded that I need to figure out a soundtrack…
Last week’s Chicago trip didn’t include any animating, though. Instead, friends Gameli, Jen, Erica (who drove six hours from St. Louis!) and I went to Six Flags for a day of all-American roller coasters and gluttony, thanks to the free tickets my aunt gave me. I don’t have a picture of us, but here’s a great old-timey ride called the Concord.
Next up: a trip to D.C.!
