Location Sketching

Took a class called the Architect's Sketchbook last semester. Found it singularly difficult learning to draw all the thing I specialize in failing to draw, but ultimately my work turned out alright toward the end. Planning's not a strong suite of mind (as you might guess from my ultra-scratchy drawing style) but it was a learning experience being forced to worry about things like datums and perspective. A harrowing one even (how I envy the things architecture students can pull off) but a fruitful one.

Now, if only I can get proportions right.....consarnit!

In other news, I'm also attempting to break out of my Luddite ways and get better at Photoshop. Here's a first attempt. Unfortunately, while I love the look of this thing in PSD form, the JPEG form reveals my own silly attempts at subtlety fall apart when the whole thing's darkened. Alas, I'm unable to share that version online. Still, I hope what gets across is some feeling of what my year's been like (ie, not pretty).
