@rainymilo in progress for #thescrollsketches

Hi! Just me again. The heatwave broke, not that I need an excuse to get back in a rollneck.

Is it still a candid nomakeup nofilter selfie if you wear brow pencil and old mascara, spend an hour to take 100 shots, and crop out your weird looking lamp when you should be working? Asking for a friend. Contrived captions are revolting, including this one. Blessings upon the ambiguous emoji.πŸ₯š

Morning pages. Mirror studies thursday 26th. Permanently conflicted about topknots. How can one hairstyle be so practical, so resolved in its form and yet SO silly? Longer video with more of todays studies coming soon to my IGTV.

My first IGTV video is live! I ran out of steam with #abelapse last year as I was getting pretty frustrated trying to edit hours of a drawing down to 1min - The videos always seem to miss the important parts of the sketch - when I'm thinking and my hand traces invisible lines on the page, or when I measure distances - all the weird inflections that make drawing so personal. This charcoal study of Jose Tapiro Baros 'Head of a moor' is now up running at 2mins 30. Please let me know if you would like to see longer sketch videos from yours truly. ❀

Totally and utterly honored to be painted by @yulia_lobanov - All her work is exquisite ❀
