What fun this was! This week we posed according to an experience the prior poser had either during the past week or anytime at all. We were subjected to mosquito bites, bike riding up a hill against the wind, squirrels in a tree and many more adventures. Someone even had his heart stolen.

On Tuesday Dylan Sara, the online portrait sketching zoom host, had an idea. Instead of just responding to emotional prompts we must also alternate the direction of our pose. So, the first person faced left, the next right, next left and so on. It quickly became apparent that none of us could figure out which way to face when it was our turn. Very hysterical and confusing and fun. When the 2 minute and 4 minute poses commenced I started drawing on the page below, as is my habit, from the left edge to the right edge, flipped the paper over and again sketched from left to right. Then I fill in empty spaces with subsequent poses until it feels finished. At the same time I’m also sketching the 6 minute poses in a small sketchbook. So I’m kind of busy and enjoying myself immensely. Later on, when I arrived back home from Germany (it really feels like I actually went somewhere other than my kitchen), I examined the book pages and noticed that, thanks to Dylan’s brilliant confusing plan, everyone seems to have fallen into conversational groups, some seemingly telling secrets, and no one paying any attention to me.

Can’t control myself. This Tuesday afternoon online portrait sketching from Germany is just too much fun and forces me to make a book.

I prepared a piece of paper, for the 2 minute and 4 minute poses, with random collage bits and pieces. You all know how much I’m missing crowds and clumps of people, well, I made my own crowd.

I scanned my now very cluttered table and spotted something else demanding my attention.
