I was just down in Sarasota and had the chance to photograph the skeleton of Paul Rudolph’s Sarasota High School (1959).  In its current state, it feels more like a giant sculpture than a building.  I’ve gotta say it was beautiful to see the building as Rudolph first envisioned it….I wouldn’t be surprised if these pictures are mistaken for being taken fifty years ago.

If you are feeling sad, I think Ai WeiWei: Never Sorry is a good movie to watch for survival mechanisms. I think about his absolute determination quite often when I feel like lying on the floor and giving up. It’s on Netflix Instant.

How to draw folds

Notes on how to draw folds back when I was teaching manga classes back in 2006. From the book “Drawing people” by Barbara Bradley.

http://www.amazon.com/Drawing-People-Portray-Clothed-Figure/dp/1581803591

This book has a very detailed description of 6 types of commonly seen folds and I think is one of the most educational resource on how to draw folds(Besides Vilppu and Bridgeman).

這是我以前教漫畫課程時給學生看的講義.來源是芭芭拉布莱德丽的”着装人物素描”«上海人民美术出版社出版».

書裡講解了皺摺形成的兩個主要原理(拉扯與擠壓)以及因兩種作用力下形成的六種常見的皺褶類型.
