On Sept . 23, 2008 I had the opportunity to work with the art students from Northampton Community College in a community art project. Each student created 2 or 3 paper and oil pastel tridimensional pieces based on a template a created. After each pieces was assembled, I put them together in a Racimo (a banana bunch!), a hanging art piece. For a video explanation of the project you can visit: www.youtube.com/watchv=pJdRjeL1boo
Even without being the fan of Japanese super-duo Atelier Bow-Wow that I am, I still would have been blown away after perusing the drawings in their latest book, Graphic Anatomy, at a bookstore a couple weeks ago. The thorough mix of working drawing, perspective drawing, and entourage is a novel combination of well-established drawing conventions. They're beautiful in their own right.
