I Draw Girls

On one particularly long day in college a life-drawing professor chided me. Somehow (how?) he sensed my feigned interest in drawing the male form. Perhaps I was nibbling on the end of a charcoal pencil while a nude man graced the stage. When i draw men it’s with half my heart.

“Amber, you can’t base an entire career on just drawing girls….” he sing-songed.
I paused in thought, then recommitted myself to my Bristol, realizing with a sigh that he was probably right.

What have seven years of reflection on this point taught us? Oh, I know.

BOO YA.

I say neigh, Professor. Neigh to that.

My life drawing from this year’s Pratt Draw-A-Thon can be seen on FlickR. I’ll be uploading the last of the drawings that happened this year this coming weekend.
