Recently I’ve been graciously given a part-time job as a custom framer. While I’ve worked at this frame shop before, the old adage of “use it or lose it” has proven itself true, and I’m having to remember and relearn a lot of things. (It’s been about four years!) My boss emailed me a video that covered a good amount of framing basics (mainly which materials, mats, glass, etc. to use for different items). I learned a few things and remembered others!
So while waiting for the video to load (and admittedly, while it was playing), I drew a couple of the speakers. There was something about this one’s eyes that looked happy or gentle, so that was an interesting thing to try to capture. Unfortunately, the others I sketched came out terribly. (I chose not to upload them. The last thing I want to do is offend these ladies with my awkward portrait-drawing skillz if they happen to stumble across this blog!)
