I’ve always liked to draw, but I haven’t drawn consistently since I was 18 or so. Planting this /art page is my way of nudging myself to draw more. Inspired by macwright.com/drawings.
Elephant on the wall
Last summer my roommate found this big ole frame on the street in Brooklyn (large yellow bicycle below for scale). I stuck it on a wall in my room and started drawing this elephant that I took a picture of in India. I’m drawing directly on the wall with no canvas or anything, which feels rather freeing. It’s a work in progress, as you can see.
That elephant is the most recent art I made that hangs in my apartment. This monkey is the oldest art I made that still hangs in my apartment. I started painting in ninth grade, and this was the first thing I remember working on besides one obligatory still life on day 1.
