Design 1

This week, I had my first design class ever. Lawrence Marvit was our teacher, and it has truly been an epiphany. I went from seeing abstract art as nonsense to seeing it as the most clear way of expressing a feeling. We stacked drawing tools (first Line then Shape then Value etc...) and worked on an abstract level the whole week, even though most of the pictures we analysed were classical paintings of figures and landscapes. We spend hours upon hours of creating a picture with three black boxes and a line, drew the taste of bacon and dark chocolate, drew the sound of "Kind of Blue", and the feelings of romance and Robin Hood. Here are some of my drawings; believe it or not, to do them took between 3 hours and 20 minutes in excecution as well as days of studying:

Kind of Blue
"A smoky underground jazz club"

"Two people under bed sheets"

Robin Hood
"A bird soaring over a big wall"
