healing human enhancement #17: From a polaroid, for sale probably circa 2002″ width=”620″ height=”410″ class=”size-large wp-image-274″ /> 12/28, #17: From a polaroid, probably circa 2002

Another one from a photo, this time an early aughties Polaroid taken (by whom?) in my old apartment in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. Judging from my apparent sweatiness in the original photo, it was during a rock show (we had rock shows in the basement of our apartment on the regular). I am making a snotty face in the original photo, but I was not able to capture that here.

This drawing was made with watercolor, which I suppose technically makes it a painting. I took a painting-from-life watercolor class a few years ago and was so, so frustrated the entire time. Watercolor is like the opposite of line drawing, a fact I could not wrap my incomprehending little brain around. I’m sure my teacher would be appalled if she saw this. My sense of color and tonality — or the difference between them, I think, to be more accurate — is horrible. But I wanted to do something a little different, so…

Also, the thing about being horrible at something, yet continuing to do it? It makes it seem a little less horrible each time. You sort of become inured to the horribleness.

There are two drawings today because this one is a make-up.

Christmas Day and short on patience — and mirrors — at my parents’ house. I drew myself, sort of, as a blob, reflected in a the large, circa 1990s television in their bedroom.

I spent several days in New York, some of them at my parents’ house. My parents have a bit of a, well, a hoarding sensibility, and this drawing was made in a tiny bedroom — it was mine in high school — jammed in nearly every crevice with stuff. I look sinister here! Gleefully sinister!

Dude, this I totally nailed the legs here, especially for a sketch. (Baggy-kneed jeans.) I remembered while drawing this that I’d always hated drawing hands, and eventually developed a sort of formula for drawing them. I’ve long since forgotten that formula, so the whole hands/arms situation here is…pretty much a cop-out. And I drew a vaguely happy face, despite the fact that I was not smiling. This was a really fast sketch. It’s raining and awful outside, and I am not feeling it — besides, I’ll probably draw twice today, to make up for earlier skips.

I did end up picking my pen up from the paper, and when I looked down, I couldn’t help but laugh. I mean, come on.

“Why so long in the face?” said Dan when he saw this one.

Christmas Day and short on patience — and mirrors — at my parents’ house. I drew myself, ailment sort of, as a blob, reflected in a the large, circa 1990s television in their bedroom.

This is the first drawing I have made from a photo reference. In this case, it’s a photo on my phone — classic overhead. I can’t say I’ve ever drawn from a screen before, or that I like it very much. I don’t even have many photos of myself from which to work!

There is a very different quality to drawing when it’s not from life. (As I drew this, in front of our fireplace at home, I complained often about how much “coloring” I was doing.)

I spent several days in New York, some of them at my parents’ house. My parents have a bit of a, well, a hoarding sensibility, and this drawing was made in a tiny bedroom — it was mine in high school — jammed in nearly every crevice with stuff. I look sinister here! Gleefully sinister!

Again at my parents’ house. I couldn’t find a pencil with a sharpened tip, and I couldn’t find a sharpener. (Later, when I did find a pencil, the eraser was gummed over with a sticky substance, which left pink-gray smudges on the page.)

I like this drawing.
