i haven't fallen asleep; i am in the middle of a 5-piece series for last semester's fashion illustration class, and starting a new sketchbook. i also still don't have a clear idea of what i will do for senior thesis, and michael kimmelman's portraits, our assigned summer reading, is not exactly helping me see the light. meanwhile, there still are more pages to share from my prague sketchbook!

that portrait of georges perec i drew over a year ago turned out to be quite useful. the people at dalkey archive press liked the original and so i made this new and improved one for their "georges perec issue" of "the review of contemporary fiction." how exciting; i have never been on the cover of anything before!

hello again, friends. i am back from ohio (by the way, the cleveland museum of art is practically unrecognizable now; i can't wait until they finish it!), and preparing for the start of my senior year at MICA. i have yet to think of a theme for my thesis project (what will interest me for an entire year?), but i know that spending the last half year in the czech republic gave me a great deal of things to think about. one of the most important things i learned is to appreciate and take advantage of my surroundings every day. no, baltimore is not quite prague, but that doesn't mean that it deserves to be treated with any less wonder and fascination. i am lucky to live practically next door to the baltimore museum of art and only a short train ride away from washington, d.c. i vow to take advantage of as much as i can, while i can!

i am back in the USA, and i just returned from camping and canoeing on the allegheny river in pennsylvania. i am working on gradually posting all of my sketchbook pages from prague, and some other cities that i visited during the last five months.
