in the forest

This was inspired by a joke with a colleague.  We were talking about making estimates, and I quipped that we engineers assume everything is just a sphere of 1 meter in diameter as an estimate for just about anything.  Which is not too far from the truth.  So when we got talking to about drawing a horse – trust me, there was a natural progression from engineering estimates to drawing horses – I threw down a circle as my horse and cried “Done!”  When they remained incredulous that a circle was indeed a horse, I quickly took that circle and added a few more likes into a form that I actually through worth fleshing out a bit more.

Admittedly, I am not super happy with the end results.  But when is an artist ever happy with what they produce?  Don’t bother replying, the answer is “never.”  But as I appreciate that others have liked it, I thought it worth sharing both the process and end-results.

I’m the creator and operator of this little corner of the internets, writing on all things related to art and more specifically my experiences trying to figure this whole thing out. I guess I’m trying to figure out life, too, but mostly I just post about art here.

Breath some fire into this post!
