this is, unofficially, the final project that i did for matt. (not including my one day assignment which i had to redo so that it was actually all done in one day)
i posted the sketch for it earlier- and this would be the final drawing that came of it.
no, i don’t know what they’re looking at. i decided to leave it out- partially to be annoying, partially just because it doesn’t have to be there. this picture doesn’t really mean anything- which i think is part of the reason i enjoyed doing it so much. and, unlike other pieces, i didn’t even bother to insert a concept afterwards. it just is.
if i have to explain it- i will say this. they’re in philly, obviously they’re sight seeing. if you’re real quick, you can tell from the setting that they’re actually in a specifically touristy spot.
it was kind of a throw away assignment, because matt decided, basically at the last minute of the semester, that our class would benefit from some forced life drawing. actual life, not naked posed life, which is why he sent us out into the world for our second to last class.
and he actually admitted, offhandedly, during my final crit, that i was not a part of that pool of students he had been thinking of when creating the assignment, which for a split second fueled my indignance over the project (i think i already complained about the various reasons why i didn’t really have fun that day) but those feelings immediately died when i remembered how much i like this piece.
i think it would, in fact, be safe to say that it is my favourite piece from matt’s class this semester. i don’t know if he would like to hear that or not, but it’s the truth.
