Here's a full version of the art party that was in the KINFOLK magazine. I'd like to call it Charcoal & Cheese, charcoal being one of my favorite things in this world and cheese being one of Landon's favorite things, two happy campers = one awesome party. We first started out with cheese, thinly sliced meats [my absolute fav.], garlic-y baguettes, salty olives and two types of rich grape juices.
After our stomachs were happy, we got our hands on the charcoal. I had planned themes for each series we drew so that we all weren't just sitting there staring blank at each other saying, "what should I draw?" Some of the series that we drew were: our own version of a tree, the progression of a cat catching a fish and then eating the fish, and portraits of each other without lifting up our piece of charcoal [the technical term being Contour Drawing.]
We all had our own styles and it was fun and funny to see what each other came up with. I practically laughed the whole time watching Landon and his intense drawing face. I could literally see the wheels turning in that head of his... I loved it and definitely want to do this again! I even have some of Landon's charcoals framed and hung up on our wall, yay for art parties!
