simultaneous left and right-handed blind contours.  ballpoint pen.
This morning I did a few 45-second blind gesture drawings (blind = not looking at the paper as you draw … I kinda cheated, you can tell in places) with both hands.  The results were real weird!  My left hand doesn’t have as much fine motor coordination, so everything is large and jagged over there.

Mostly asleep blind contours of the cat.  Sharpie pen.
Hello, I’m back in town!  Words of advice: don’t draw while dozing on the couch, you will proceed to fall asleep but continue to draw.  I don’t know, it was really late and Ananth was playing Dragon Age.  Everything here is fairly gross looking. :|
The jury is still out on my feelings over Dragon Age: Origins.  I’m very excited about the second one though, and I think Ananth is determined to play through the first one before playing the second one.
[edit: Oops, gramatical error!  Chalk it up to being pretty much asleep.]

Blind Contours from Math Club.
"Math Club" is our secret codename for "Art Club," which is more of a "Hang Out At L’s Place And Eat Homemade Scones And Nerd About Comics-Club."  But now I’ve told you the secret codename, so just, y’know, keep it to yourselves.
The Math Club regulars all have Tumblrs!  They are all lovely people, despite how strangely I drew them here.
