Watched Emmanuelle II (which I loved; go watch it) and felt strangely inspired to draw something for the first time in months. Feeling quite enamored with the female form as of late, despite the fact that I have apparently completely lost the ability to accurately render a human woman these days.
Today I went to the Brooklyn Museum for the first time. I live only five blocks away, and pass it every day on my way to/from work, but since it’s only open until 6, I can’t make it there on the weekdays before it closes. I liked a lot of the pieces on display, though the museum itself felt a little sporadically organized to me. The museum has a huge collection of Egyptian art on display on the 3rd floor, which I usually find myself bored with somewhat quickly, but ended up enjoying this time thanks to these two Nefertiti carvings on display – I really loved the minimalism and earnestness of them, which felt surprisingly modern to me. I left the museum feeling like I wanted to paint,even though I haven’t painted in close to 3 years, and then went home and did some poorly executed pencil drawings instead. Inspiration is relative, I guess.
amazingly crappy photos that I took at the actually-super-cool AIGA “Century” exhibit.
Watched this on a date last night. Best date movie ever.
The graphics in this movie blew my mind. Let alone that it was made in 1977! The beginning is tough, but once you get adjusted to the specific breed of weirdness being employed, it’s hilariously campy and enjoyable.
