it's alright. the college I go to is pretty rigorous so its intense but good. it's nice to have the freedom and independence although I do miss chicago, not much going on in st. louis. I am taking french so I hope to become fluent in it!

haha isn't that the golden question? No clue at the moment. I was going to get a degree in art but I don't seem to have it in me I guess as Drawing 1 was hell for me and made me cry at least once a week. So I guess art is just a hobby now :/. I'm trying something called Philosophy-Neuroscience-Psychology which is really interesting cause I like the brain lol so I'll try that. Hows life on your end?

this is excellent, what did you use? charcoal? i love the face by the way, looks like it suits it's body. looks' as if his face is very soft.

thank you. I used black conté from the brand "Conté a Paris" which is charcoal in a crayon like form and then white charcoal pencil and just used tissue paper to blend.

And thank you for liking the face! I do too but my art professor disagrees. I am proud of the softness, I really wanted to evoke the feeling of fur.
