Ahh.. Friday. It has been a good one so far.

Yesterday was a late night (as Tuesdays and Thursdays are - evening drawing class over in SF). I got to sit and draw next to the master himself (Tony) and his apprentice (Anna, the masteress in training), who together, put me in my place. It was a lot of fun (as well as motivating) sitting between the two. Both of them had outstanding drawings over the three hour period, making me realize that it is going to take a lot of work/practice if they are going to name a Ninja Turtle after me someday (but I am determined). That all being said, my drawing was still decent.

I chased the moon all the way home from Santa Fe (it is even a relaxing drive at night). The stars are plenty, and it was nice to see the pleiades, who I've missed since last winter, perched up over the sandias.

Okay, back to Friday. As I said, it has been a good one. In class, I finished up drawing and inking the portrait of Lily, and am definitely excited about washing it in next week. After lunch, I hung around and drew for the last several hours. A few classmates asked me to demo some of my techniques for a bit, which was quite a privilege (I just hope Tony doesn't come after me with his mahl stick on Monday morning).

Anyways. I have two days of down time ahead of me (I hope the Bears game is televised here Sunday).
