katie's kites

katie's kite shop, open monday through saturdays, 10am-5pm

named "katie's kites" after my brilliant and beloved roomate, katie, who was helping me brainstorm types of stores to draw for the assignment and had a sudden stroke of genius.

(somewhat) finished version of this sketch
graphite on bristol, 20"x20"
25-30 hours?
i think i'm going to go back in and put pattern detailing on the kites, and also make up for the slack job on the view out the bottom window. hehe

lesson learned: sharpening edges is extremely effective using a 0.5mm HB mechanical pencil. it will also cause temporary blindness and mild headaches.
also, never try to fake understanding of bird anatomy especially when your drawing teacher is a proud caretaker of 80+ adopted birds.
