This section is my college art. There are two main things represented here, hands and school projects. I was very interested in hands as a subject and would often draw my left hand with my right. Not that my left hand was any better looking than my right hand, it was just that my right hand had all the talent. (Insert "one hand not knowing what the other is doing" joke.) I left the yellow aging color in some of these. Represented here are hands in various poses. Project 1 was pretty interesting. We were given a selection of kitchenware and told to draw several of them using one continuous line. Project 2 was a little more intense. We selected an object to draw, I chose a teapot with a broken handle.  

We had to create our ink pen/brush out of common items that were given us: a pencil eraser, a piece of bamboo and a scrap of paper. To top it off each effort was timed, we had only a couple of minutes to create a pen or brush and then draw the item we had selected as our subject.
