  • Excited to be heading home to start my 5-week residency at @facebook. My thesis is “Women In The Workplace.” Inspired by the modern embrace of individuality within office spaces, the poster series leverages bright and colorful portraits of women heading into work. Historically, women and their personalities tend to be quieted or ignored within an office setting; these portraits aim to be a playful nod to celebrate how society has began to empathize with womanhood and the stories, thoughts, and ideas women bring to the table. The more we as a society see relatable, expressive representations of working women, the more we can continue to embrace all of our peers for their individual perspectives.

  • I get a lot of questions about the curiously sharp pencils I use at @araboston (understandably so, as they are quite extreme). Here is why and how we sharpen:
.
These pencils cure a heavy hand. If you press too hard, the pencil breaks. You quickly learn how to control pressure and lighten touch.
.
Drawing with a light touch and sweeping the surface of the paper mimics the motion of painting. It trains the arm and hand for the paintbrush. The drawing curriculum at the Academy of Realist Art is designed to lay a foundation for painting, so this is one of the most important reasons.
.
The entire shaft of the pencil is sharpened, so you maintain a point longer. Fewer sharpening breaks means more drawing with less interruptions.
.
The sharper the point, the more precise the drawing.
.
This tool can fill in the tooth of the paper, allowing you to cover 100% of the surface with tone, creating a clean and convincing rendering effect. Really, the graphite drawings around here are so convincing they look like holograms. When you ask the artist how they created the effect, the conversation always starts with, “first, I get the pencil really sharp…”
.
To sharpen a pencil this way, I slowly whittle down the wood with a blade, exposing three to four inches of graphite. I make sure the wood tapers towards the point as I go. Then I sand the entire length of the lead with a block of sanding paper, medium grit. I spend about thirty minutes sharpening every morning, and then continually refine the point with sandpaper throughout the day as needed.
.
Update: will post a sharpening and drawing video this week ✏️

  • ANTROPOFAGIAS⠀
⠀
“Transformase el amante en la cosa amada” con su⠀
sonrisa feroz, los dientes,⠀
las manos que relampaguean en lo oscuro. Trae ruido⠀
y silencio. Trae el sonido de las olas frías⠀
y de las ardientes piedras que están dentro de ellas.⠀
Y cubre ese ruido rudimentario con el asombrado⠀
silencio de su última vida.⠀
El amante se transforma de instante en instante,⠀
y se siente el espíritu inmortal del amor⠀
creando la carne en extremas atmósferas, encima⠀
de todas las cosas muertas.⠀
⠀
Transformase el amante. Corre dentro de las formas.⠀
Y la cosa amada es una bahía estanque.⠀
Es el espacio de un candelabro,⠀
la columna vertebral y el espíritu⠀
de las mujeres sentadas.⠀
⠀
Transformase en noche extintora.⠀
Porque el amante es todo, y la cosa amada⠀
es una cortina⠀
Donde el viento del amante bate en lo alto de la ventana⠀
abierta. El amante entra⠀
por todas las ventanas abiertas. El golpea, golpea, golpea.⠀
El amante es un martillo que machuca⠀
Que transforma la cosa amada.⠀
⠀
Ella entra por los oídos, y después la mujer⠀
que escucha⠀
se queda con aquel grito para siempre en la cabeza⠀
para arder como el primer día del verano. Ella oye⠀
y se va transformando, mientras duerme, en aquel grito⠀
del amante.⠀
Después despierta, y va, y se da al amante.⠀
Le da su grito.⠀
Y el amante y la cosa amada son un único grito⠀
anterior del amor.⠀
⠀
Y gritan y golpean. Él la golpea con su espíritu⠀
de amante. Y ella es golpeada, y lo golpea⠀
con su espíritu de amada.⠀
Entonces el mundo se transforma en este ruido áspero⠀
del amor. Mientras encima⠀
el silencio del amante y de la amada alimentan⠀
el imprevisto silencio del mundo⠀
y del amor⠀
⠀

  • "Tribal Series I"
Against a greyish-black background that lift like mist over Inle Lake, she sat with such regal dignity undeterred by long pieces of heavy coil brass wrapped around her neck. Her will for beauty may seem fiercely deliberate but as a Kayan Lahwi, it is a need for survival.
