i'd like to introduce a new artist of a different medium, richard notkin:
he works with ceramic tiles, and also chinese yixing inspired teapots
that's a great image though. great light.
Thanks, bossman. The new Chinese subversives (as I think of them) are sure shaking things up. I hadn't seen this artist before. . .
Yeah, I sent that Lozowick image to a painter friend of mine, and she thought it was a photograph. Don't know what that says about it, or her. . .
it's the lighting. that's key.
Yeah, it's pretty intense. And the subtleties of shading, like the translucency of the milky tea (?) and the various tones of the white cup, are convincing -- and must be difficult to achieve in the waxing of the lithography stone ?
Hope it's not too big.
That would be a charcoal drawing by Adam Kolodziej, one of the more eccentric profs at my school. Unsurprisingly, he teaches a hand drawing/rendering course.
Thanks Endoo -- sized just right, I guess. Almost wish I could see a close-up detail. . . Looks like an interesting drawing.
There's an architect in Sausalito named Barry Peterson. Does these great drawings with charcoal and other stuff -- printer toner, melted with solvents of some kind. And just the most beautiful strokes. I'll see if I can find some.
here's a sketch i made earlier last year. it's a picture of some computer cords. my desk was a makeshift saw-horse type, in front of a huge window. you can see the ground behind the desk.
why post it now? well, just because.
i'm gonna make it bigger
for your viewing pleasure
I love this thread ...
Nice, bossman -- lotsa marks in that drawing ! Yeah, I go to width=420.
Quite a pile, the SO bldg. Suppose we could admire an occasional photo on the drawing thread. Haven't often seen a subtle two-color "monochrome" image like this one. Guess they wanted to highlight the subject structure ?
Might I suggest this blog as well?
I think it's a collection of both professional and student work from around the interwebz.

My favorite urban sketcher:
Seems to me it's about time to revive this wonderful thread ....
Are you guys familiar with Stephen Wiltshire. Pretty impressive. He is a savant that draws cityscapes from memory.
