This mythical one legged goat originated in India. It represented the god of floods, and would cause lightning by stomping it’s foot. The aja-ekapad also symbolized the spark of creation.
I’m really enjoying the way a colored pencil draws these days.
Also known as the King of the Lakes or the Sun Dog, this five armed myth of the Aztec has been described in Christopher Columbus’s inventory of the new world as well as in the Florentine Codex written by a Franciscan monk in the late 1500’s. It’s said to have been a creature about the size of a dog with human or monkey-like features and a fifth hand growing out of the end of it’s tail. It would live in watery caves and drown any intruders, allegedly consuming the victim’s eyes, teeth and nails. And now, you know.
Sketching little beasties.
Exciting things! I found a studio near my apartment that offers open figure drawing sessions. It’s been about three years since I’ve drawn from a model, and I felt it was time to brush up. The space was cozy and equipped with chairs, easels, a table, coffee and wine. I stood next to an older man working in charcoal. When he saw my very clean, timid pencil lines, he told me I needed to get my hands dirty and offered me a piece of his charcoal. What a romantic and lovely thing.
Hey guys, I’m testing out this space as a way to keep track of my new works in progress, sketches, experiments and goings on. I’ll try to update and share as often as possible.
Thanks for stopping by! Don’t forget to check out the shop for prints and original works.
An ongoing exploration of maladies.
