I was rooting around in the compressed strata of my overstuffed flat file looking for watercolor paper and I ran across this pen drawing from college.
I wish I could remember where I saw the medieval image. Probably a woodcut? I vaguely remember the project rules. You had to pick an everday object laying around your dorm room (in this case I chose my ancient Columbiana Elementary school t-shirt*) and then interpret that object in as many ways as you possibly could on paper.
As I paged through the old sketchbook, I found all kinds of really lame, contrived still lifes and compositions featuring the T-shirt, but this one made me smile.
It always makes me cringe to look through sketchbooks from high school and college, but I always look anyway. I can't help myself. Where is that younger mystery person? Some of her stuff makes the Liger drawing look pretty sophisticated.
*That's Columbiana, Alabama, if you know where that is.
