I had a teacher in college who told us to go draw a building but only to sit and draw it and not take a photo. I cheated and took a photo and I pinched a menu form the building (it was the Keg Mansion) cause there was a bad line drawing of the front entrance on the menu.
It is not lost on me that the point of the exercise was lost on me...
So I sat out on College St for 3 consecutive lunches (the nasty-assed worst weather days Toronto has had in months) and drew the Canadian Blood Services Building on College near Bay.
He failed me anyway.
Joe Strummer. Took the poetry and the passion of an era with him.
Did you ever used to have that friend that was just totally in awe of a particular artist, tried to emulate their style, started playing an instrument because of said artist, the whole deal. Real Fan.
You ever feel like you shouldn't dig that artist as much cause it would be kinda like moving in on their chick or something?
This one's dedicated to that guy.
