The first drawing is something I did last semester for my Lithography class. I have to say it was quite painful to do marks making on stone.  The process of actually getting the stone to have an even surface...2 damn hours of polishing... you end up with a numb arm...and it doesn't end there.  I'll spare your time by not explaining "the etching" + "printing" procedure. All in all, I'm happy to have learned this art form of printing. So, instead of taking the simple path for the 2nd semester...I'm making my project complexe ( see 2nd drawing) Yes. Indeed. Suicidal.  I'm considering doing it on Fuji plates (easier than stone) so that I can add colors to the drawing. Contemplating. 

In the meantime,  I did some sketches.  I'm changing habits and I don't really know if it's a good thing. I used to have so much patience when I draw... now I just want to finish it quick as possible. The "zen" quality of taking your time and having deep focus on lines/details are slowly vanishing...and is quite troubling me.  Somehow...the way you draw is base on certain characteristics of your inner self. Or,  might just be how i'm feeling at the moment. On another note,  I'm starting to have a weird fascination for eyewears.
