A Quick Sketch
Posted by Chandeen Santos
Most of you don't know this about me, but I went to art school for a short time when I was young. In high school, I spent every free moment in the art room painting and sketching. Then, when it was time to apply to colleges I applied to an art school, and got in. So I went down to NYC, completed a summer prerequisite course, and went to art school for a whole six weeks.
I was enrolled at Parson's School of Design but I made a lot of mistakes. I heard later that Parson's freshman courses are designed to weed out week artists They call it "Boot Camp" for designers. Guess I was just not cut out for that life. Sometimes I wish I had stuck with it.
I'm not great sketcher, but I want to do it more. This is my most recent sketch. In fact, my only sketch in a long time.
For some unknown reason I like to sketch rolls of toilet paper. I have a bunch of them. I like the shape they have.
So, that is my story, and my sketch.
