I rarely use this space for anything but Blind Contours, but one of my students said something cute today.
The students have been working on earning 5 “Perfect Morning Routines” (get out homework folder, turn in homework, move lunch stick, read or write silently) for a while. On Friday, they finally earned their 5th Perfect Morning Routine (which means I bring in pie).
"A," a quirky frizzy redhead girl, came up to me this morning.
A: Now that we’ve gotten five Perfect Morning Routines, are you expecting us to get Perfect Morning Routines every day?
A: (in what I can only describe as some kind of growly scientist or wizard voice) WHAT MONSTER HAVE WE UNLEASHED???
Then she walked away to read silently.
Pretty, pretty amazing.
Oh, and by the way, I am updating my clay blog for the next 22 DAYS on a daily basis. Check it out:
Two more blind contour drawings of a model in a clothing magazine.
Those are some very frilly skirts, you see.
Oh my, I think she’s hurt her neck!
I drew a series of models from a clothing magazine. I drew each model three times, on graph paper. It would be fun to see what other artists could do with these!
Look at that sassy model face!
This one is my favorite of the fist three. I started to think, “Wow, I might actually produce something beautiful here!” And then I drew the third version…
Hello! Here is another self portrait. I am especially happy with the colors and shadows in this one.
And remember, you can order your own Blind Contour Portrait by e-mailing me! You will receive the original piece of art by the way, not just a print.
A blind contour drawing / watercolor of Jeff Bridge’s “The Dude” from The Big Lebowski. That’s one of those films that I just enjoy more with every viewing. It’s the anti-mystery mystery movie.
This is the latest Blind Contour in my Coen Brothers series- check out the others below!
Another Blind Contour Self Portrait:
I am having a lot of fun with these!
Javier Bardem’s character Anton Chigurh in No Country For Old Men is still one of the scariest villains I have ever seen in a movie. I remember in the theater, when Anton Chirgurh appears behind Woody Harrelson’s character, nobody gasped. Instead, everybody let out a sad sigh, because we all know Woody was doomed…
Is this Barton Fink or Berton Fink?
I thought it would be fun to offer commissions for Blind Contour Portraits for the Holiday Season!

I drew / painted this as a card to my grandparents, but I thought it was appropriate to post here as well! This is ME:
This is the first post for my series of Blind Contour Coens. I am making Blind Contour portraits of various Coen Brothers’ film characters.
Here is Brad Pitt’s character Chad from “Burn After Reading.” I will never forget the scene of Chad in the closet…
My cousin has a newborn baby son. This is the birthday card I made for him. Usually I would decorate a birthday card with something a child is into… you know, trains or dragons or the such. But Auggie’s just a baby! So I figured I would cover all the bases.
This is painted with acrylics on nice thick paper.
