Ready or not you are about to hear about "the vogue papers". I alluded to it last week when I showed you the the chair portrait project. I've got enough projects going that I need a whole filing system to keep up with them. Luckily my mind is like a steel trap from which nothing escapes. Ever.
The vogue papers emerged from the creative mind of Lisa Hoffman. We each went out and bought one of these behemoths...
... and I marked all the pages I thought would be interesting to try and sketch
... and started with this. Kind of a warm up session if you will.
I thought it best to start with one part of the human body. Feet are hard to draw. The human foot has 26 bones and 33 joints. I like to tackle hard things first. Get them out of the way and move on to easier things.
Things like the hand. The human hand has 27 bones. Oops. It's harder than the foot.
Then of course there is the face which is quite complex in and of itself. I do not recall from anatomy class with Dr. Sam Zeakes in 1979 at Marymount College of Kansas how many bones are in the human face, but no matter the number, it is quite complex to draw.
I am starting from the extremities and working my way in. I don't know what I will attempt next, but I have some ideas.
You gotta love the shadows on that face, not to mention the outfit. Stay tuned for future episodes of the vogue papers and go visit Lisa to see what she's been up to. We have 2 very different approaches to this project. That's the beauty of a harebrained scheme - it's not supposed to be serious, orderly, OR well thought out.
