The evening of 12-27-12.
I had been pondering what a 9 sided geometric figure is called. Most are easy: triangle, pentagon, octogon, etc. I realized I didn't know. A nine sided polygonal figure is called a "nonagon".
Drawn the evening of Thursday the 13th, 2012.
A bit of a cold night.
Left the drawing ruler at home, and hence, arrived at a design with some bad inaccuracies.
For a while during the performing a loopy, bearish man with a goofy hat wandered into the circle and performed some amusing antics. Someone who doesn't have all their marbles, likely.
At one point he pulled random trash out of his pockets; papers and bottle caps and sort of tossed them around the area. A long scroll of receipt paper floated around. Charlie wrapped it around himself like a necklace for a bit while reading a poem. Then, to my amusement, my musician friend Nic tore off a hunk of it and made himself a defacto headband. What a moment.
Drawing from 12-6-12.
The first evening I had done street drawing in about a month.
A fourteen point star. Simple in construction but solid in measurements.
Before the chalk drawing I had gone with friends to a drawing session at someone's apartment a block away. It seems promising that we can all get together for a regularly weekly sketch day.
This is an experimental style that I'd been meaning to try with chalk for years.
One of the things which fascinates me in art is constructing/de-constructing figures and objects. Rendering them in geometrical, neo-cubist style. I was only moderately satisfied with the results here but this style avenue, 'ropey cubism' as I think of it, has great potential.
