Greetings! I have joined a new art school and I am taking my first class. The emphasis of this school is illustration, which I am still having a hard time defining in my mind. I cannot seem to understand the difference between illustration and any other art. However, I think a little light is dawning with the name of this new school: Society of Visual Storytelling. Hmmm... So, illustration is making art that tells a story. Doesn't all art tell a story? Well, maybe not in the same way. Anyway, I am determined to learn about this. So, I am starting at the beginning, again. LOL! I have started at the beginning so many times!
I am in the process of a class called "How to Draw Everything", which is basically the fundamentals of art. I know I have already been through the fundamentals several times, but it is nifty to get it from other points of view. Every time I have taken a class on the same thing from someone new, I have learned something new.
I am doing lots of repetition and it is getting my creative juices flowing. So, this is where I am at right now.
Also, my garden is almost floating. LOL! It has been raining for a while, now. I need to get my wellies on and get some salad fixin's.
