Every week I go downtown to a coffee shop, listen to music on their open mic night, spend time with friends, and also work on my drawings in this art-filled environment. I love it so much, and it has been a great testimony to be able to show my God-given talent to perfect strangers. It is also a wonderful place for me to receive more commissions. I have made friends with many of the workers there, and one of the baristas commissioned me to do this sweet picture. Looks like he was a little inspired after seeing the drawing I did for my friend Tyler a couple of weeks ago. I enjoyed drawing this picture.
Back when I took Drawing I class at North Greenville, for our last project we had to produce three different Vanitas Still-lifes. In the drawings, each object is a symbol and represents something which the drawing talks about as a whole. It was slightly challenging to find objects that gave meaning to the message I tried to convey. A little research did help to give me ideas, and allowed me to bring further meaning into my work than I had anticipated. More work from Drawing I, II, and III will be posted once I have completed the finishing touches.
