“Smile” — New Drawing Video

I’ve been learning more about capturing live drawings and preparing them as videos. I’m hoping to start sharing them on a more frequent basis. Here’s one called Smile.

I wasn’t feeding myself. (It’s a metaphor!)

Yesterday I realized I’ve been working so hard and so long on proximity thinking, and lately working on the related Shared Situation Guide and Shared Situations website, that I haven’t been feeding other parts of myself.

And when I wasn’t working on those things, I was working to make enough money to survive. But when’s the last time I did a drawing or painting? I often can’t help taking some photos, but when’s the last time I posted one?

It’s sort of like I’ve been working so hard on feeding other people, with the projects I think could help a lot of people, that I haven’t been feeding myself.

So I took part of yesterday to start preparing a photo to post, which I hope to do soon.

I’m the variety guy, but didn’t have variety. Luckily, there’s a loophole. Maybe I needed the variety of not feeding those parts of me for a while??

My First Sand Drawing on the DavidDrawing Channel

Had fun capturing a sand drawing recently. Drawing with one hand and shooting video with the other! Hope you enjoy.

New Drawing Video — “Caterpillar Trailer”

Hope you enjoy my new drawing video on the DavidDrawing YouTube Channel. It’s called “Caterpillar Trailer” and here’s what I wrote about it:

Watch this one evolve into something that looks like a cross between a caterpillar and a tractor-trailer. It looks a little like something out of a children’s book, but probably too abstract and odd to be in one!

“What She Said” – New Drawing on YouTube

This video is only 53 seconds long!

Here’s what I wrote on YouTube:

Putting the final touches on the drawing “What She Said,” as I was testing the video setup. Luckily, this was when the personality emerged. I like the ambiguity of the noses and mouths. Where they are keeps changing as I look at it. The drawing also has this weird quality of being sad and hopeful at the same time. Maybe it’s because I sort of see several faces at the same time. One of them is even upside down, like an animal reaching down to feed on grass. This animal face that seems very innocent is only using the left side of the larger head shape and the left side of the eye, and I see the right side of its face, whereas for the larger more human face I see the left side. Ambiguous drawings seem to stay fresh longer.
