I went to (organized) a drink n draw here in Florence. AND IT WAS V FUN & CHILL. I hate clubs. Why would you do anything but hang out and draw in a bar???

I made this flyer for some friends in Milan. I’m very excited for next week when I get to see them again, and go to this show.

(also this is probably my favorite piece since coming to Florence)

watercolor sketches (all of these took 30min or less)

Things have been crazy and wonderful here in Florence. I’ve been able to go to so many beautiful and inspiring places. I’ve been to shows, and met wonderful people. I’ve been able to go to a lovely painter’s studio (the first image is the view from his villa). I’ve picked up some printmaking skills at this studio that Picasso and Henry Moore once worked in, and I’ll post those prints eventually. I’ve met some people who’ll I’ll probably work with in the future and be friends with forever. I can hardly believe it. And just today I casually picked up an internship.

Do i deserve any of this? I don’t know. I hope so.

THINGS ARE CRAZY RIGHT NOW. I DON’T HAVE ENOUGH TIME.

I’m a crazy person and spent approximately 3 hours standing around this sculpture of Il Pescatore by Vincenzo Gemito. But I’m pretty satisfied with the way this turned out.
Updates on my life soon. I guess when the internet is better…

Walter Mitty’s 1st show in ages, Tough Stuff with FOUR members, and Settling cassette release. Give as much as you can to Bridgetown as they’re having some financial difficulties making rent right now. However, if you don’t have much to give they won’t turn you away. Get there on time because they have a cap of 100, and it’s probably gonna be a bigger show. Also word on the street is Walter Mitty’s gonna have another show at VLHS in November.

Please go! All these bands are v good. If you live in soCal it’s gonna be a party.

But I went into Santa Croce today. And that was realllly cool; it’s just filled with awesome funerary monuments. Also our professor got us into this off limits area. NICE.

Here is another cycle I’ve had lying around since February.

For homework I had to go to Museo Marino Marini and draw referencing from the artwork. This was an interesting museum because it was so *relatively* contemporary compared to everything else you typically see in Florence. It was a very small museum, but I was there for like 2.5 hours. Also I completely ran out of food this morning.

ARCANGELO -Gio Ponti, 1943

CAVALIERE -Gio Ponti, 1952

LA GUERRA -Marino 1920

GIOCO di TEATRO -Marino 1920

I drew this in my sketchbook too, but I like it and it’s getting its own post.

In one of my art history classes we tangentially addressed the progression of the role of the artist in society. We discussed the social utility of artists and whether or not the career has devolved into something purely self absorbed and selfish AKA we talked about the thing that plagues me daily. It is a v good class. I like this professor a lot. Italy is very cool. I am very very fortunate.

sketchdump contd.

I’m getting much better at drawing people in motion. That feels good. In other news, I LOVE LOVE LOVE my art classes. Florence sketchbook is a dream come true, and I will probably be posting a lot of work from that class in these dumps. And comic art is fortunately exactly as I hoped it would be. Also! There are only 3 students in that class which is INSANE. It’s essentially a mentorship by that point. Also I found out my comic teacher is actually an animator which is excellent for me. Things are very very exciting. I made some Italian friends at a show, and hopefully I’ll see them again soon. They were the sweetest people, and they are in a very excellent band called Øjne.

I FINALLY GOT A SCANNER. Here are some sketches from the first couple of days in Italy. Guys, it’s really lovely here. I live right next to the Duomo (in that Piazza.) I have a couple regular haunts for drawing people. Usually tho I just sit on the stoop outside my apartment and draw there. I’m slowly getting to know the servers who work in the restaurants below us. My roommates and I have nicknames for all of them (stripes is pictured handing out flyers), but I actually have learned a couple of their names. Hopefully we’ll be friends.
