:crawling from the wreckage:

I made some tentative steps out of my creative doldrums last Sunday, when I returned to the Boston chapter of Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School for the first time since, well, the first one. It's quite a new way of figure drawing in case you haven't heard of it. Perhaps there's a branch near you.

Thankfully I have not lost the ability to draw, I didn't really think I would after only a few months, but it definitely shows what has been lacking in my life as of late. I've also tried to do some daily sketching, but I still find I can't do it inside my apartment and have gone outside. Yes, still seeking a new place. At least with the legal help I have now the stupid eviction process seems winnable or at least delayable, but the bottom line is I'm still fighting to stay in a place that I don't want to. People keep leaving the building (how they can find new places and I can't I have no idea, although I'm guessing they have lower standards than me), clueless new people are moving in, no doubt students like too much of the area right now. I am somewhat determined to stay away from Harvard Square until next summer, I swear they get worse each year in their inability to realize what is the street and what is the sidewalk and how to GET OUT OF THE WAY.

Spent most of the summer with the camera, as ever you should check out my flickr or JPG pages.
