We went to McDonald's one day for lunch, and we drew each other while I drank coffee. It was really fun actually.
Here's is Monica's drawing of myself:
And here is my drawing of Monica:
I think it is interesting how the two contrast. I am definitely the more quick and rough sketcher here, and she is more deliberate and refined and just more patient, as I should learn to be. Ugh, I had her mouth almost perfect... and then I went and messed it up when I realized I had to erase and shift her whole face. Anyway, we will have to do this again!
I also sketched the mouse after I finished Monica, and she wanted me to sit still so she could draw my profile.
Oh and please say a quick prayer for me: I just found a scholarship due on the 31st, and I have to write the essay for it TOMORROW, and I have no idea what I am going to write about. It is for the American Chesterton Society... and so it has to be Chestertonish. Sigh, I am having difficulty finding a way to go to art school this Fall, and this scholarship could really make all the difference- I just wish I had found it sooner! I write about something that has to do with art, only I have no idea just what exactly. Oh well. Maybe my angel will do it for me!

Hehe, I almost feel like saying "St. GKC, pray for me." I mean, he's pretty much the pope after Tolkien isn't he? Totally kidding of course. Or am I? Hmm....
