This illustration was done in collaboration with poet Eliot Hudson.
The Myth of Sisyphus, by Albert Camus, is a philosophical essay from 1942 about man’s futile search for meaning in an absurd world. The Nobel Prize winning existentialist is one of my favorite writers, and I recommend reading The Stranger as well, which I’ve also illustrated.
Last week I took my Illustration class to Framingham State University’s excellent art museum. We covered art criticism by drawing and writing about selected pieces. The museum has a small but powerful collection of work, including a current exhibit by Lois Tarlow.
I’m not much of a Car Guy, but this was a fun little demo to carve during the printmaking workshop on Saturday. It’s a deep red Mercedes from the 80’s, also known as Molly Ringwald.
Saturday’s printmaking workshop in Warren was a lot of fun and I met a lot of talented artists and creatives who made some beautiful and intricate linocut prints on their first try! I’ve received positive feedback and am now considering organizing another this summer.
