1000

sketch of nude model
I like drawing in ink—it forces you to be more focused, because you can’t cheat if you make mistakes

This is my 1000th blog post, something I think is worthy of celebration. I’ve been doing this since June 27th, 2010, which is amazing to me. I haven’t posted every day, but it works out to, um, well, that’s 4 years and 4 months, roughly, so that would be about 1580 days, so that means 1580 divided by 1000, which is, um—

Oh hell, there’s a reason I do design and art and photography and writing and don’t do math and statistics.

I haven’t got a huge number of followers, but it’s a number that is surprising to me, and so I also wanted to take this opportunity to say how very much I appreciate you all. (The real followers, that is, not the fake followers who use Follows or Likes to get a blogger or their readers to visit the sales pitches at their own blog. Those scammers can take a long walk off a short pier, and I can assure you that if I could delete their Follows and Likes I would.)

At any rate, I thought I should do something a bit different to celebrate my 1000th post, so this. It’s a 20-minute sketch I did this week at a life drawing drop-in session. Drawing with a model is something I haven’t done in years, and I’m really looking forward to doing a lot more of it.

While still blogging, of course!
