1st entry for May 8, 2015

 Bodies in motion: this blog is mostly filled with images of bodies at rest, but I have a great fondness for the kinetic and symbolic dimensions of dance. Especially contemporary dance. It has been a consuming and rewarding experience to make some wearable pieces that Amanda Davis is performing with in the Dancemakers theatre last night and May 14 & 15.
Lots of strong performances by very talented dance artists with visual components added by some of the TSA community. Tickets are still available, and it's well worth checking out.  You can get more info here. But this magic won't last long

On the Friday, I was at the ARC studio, and Denis was there, but with much less attention-pulling music in the space. These are a 10-minute study at top and some 15-minute ones below. All on Canson Recycled Sketch paper, mostly with Pitt pens. The bottom one is graphite pencil underdrawing and a Pentel brushpen for line.
The Jam Factory session did open things up a little energy-wise, and in classes I'm teaching, it's contour drawing time, so my line drawing is a little more connected due to that, I think
