At the airport with a new sketchbook. In a couple weeks I'll be back in ny to spend some quality time with my scanner and some completed sketchbooks. Exhausted.

2 days until the theater of end-of-term critiques. After which, I will have time to scan and upload the 4 finished sketchbooks that are sitting around, maybe do some grocery shopping, laundry, write about that Jenny Saville workshop, show what I've been painting and all that.

Jenny Saville workshop

Jenny Saville workshop, originally uploaded by jasonshogreen.

Over the past two days I had the good fortune to partake in a painting workshop with Jenny Saville. I'll write more later and share some photos, but quickly, she's a remarkable, kind, generous woman and it was a transformative couple of days (I think). She's everything you'd hope one of your favorite artists would be.
Also, she is surprisingly short.

Studies of Japanese block print compositions. Doing this, the evolution of perspective becomes very apparent.

I realized that my painting class with Vincent Desiderio is made up of 20 women, 2 boys. It's scary but makes for prettier drawings.

Always fun to open up my sketchbook after a night of heavyish drinking to see what was drawn on the subway at 3am on my way home.

I have no idea what this means.

Morgan, academically, in grease on aluminum

Grease pencil on aluminum for my first lithograph print a week from
today. No idea how dark to go, what's going to transfer, what's going
to get lost, etc. These things will get more creative if I can help
it, but sometimes the academic drawing thing feels so good. I have a
new series in my head, interesting enough (for the moment) that I just
woke up at 4:30 am to do research.

bad cyclone with hurricane coming

Took a little bike ride down to Coney Island yesterday. By the time I
got down there I was tired and hungry and my hands were lazy and the
TI that was blasting in the park behind me limited my Cyclone drawing
abilities. There is supposedly this Hurricane coming in this
afternoon. It's about 20 degrees cooler than yesterday. No complaints.

Dy nasty, originally uploaded by jasonshogreen.

One more day in France. Soon to hop on a train to Paris, or so I thought. Everybody seems to be sleeping still. It's a rainy day in the country... I might just try to enjoy that.

In going to wait to post my project until it's done in a couple weeks. I had a great, tough critique yesterday from wade and the other artists. I've been searching for this thing it's going to take for me to get to this next level and I think all the information is there now.

I actually wish I could spend the day painting, but dry time won't allow. I thing I might be making a big switch to pastel. Seriously. It's not just for kids anymore.
