Shape Based Drawering

HEY YO,
http://www.blogger.com/img/gl.link.gif
So,..... my buddy NELSON DIAZ http://www.tikirox.blogspot.com is doing an exercise I love. The Idea is that you draw a random shape or set of lines and then see how many things you can imagine out of that base shape. He's been doing this with a group of friends I think. You can see them over at CHOPSHOPSHAPES.BLOGSPOT.COM if you wish.
Dateline last week:

NELSON AND I HAD A DRINK LAST WEEK AND HE LET ME WORK FROM THE MOST RECENT SHAPE...seen here in the fleshy colored faces of these guys. I did a few others but this one stood out for me. Just fun. AND THEN A BIG FIGHT BROKE OUT IN THE BAR!....WHAT AN AWESOME CITY!.

I am not a member of this group but, the exercises are indeed beneficial and I think all artists should do them from time to time.....KEEP THINKING.

good stuff--liking the shape based exercises-though a little disappointed to not get out into bar fights with yourself and Nelson.
