I was so pleased with the effort of my artists. The most striking observation I made from seeing many of these 'one line' drawings was how commercial and professional the drawings looked, as if they were designed by a graphic artist. The lines on these sketches were flowing and bold. Students did not strive for realism with their sketches, but instead succeeded in showing us a more dynamic and abstract appearance.
In Deven's pencil drawing, I was very impressed with how the connecting lines give us the impression of the sides of the pencil and the wood grain near the point. I like how his drawn line extends from the pencil point out to the top of the page. Very clever! With Emerson's cupcake, her continuous line shows us a beautiful abstract design that creatively hints at the lines of the cupcake wrapper, the fluffy icing on top and the wonderful swirl of the round plate. Ryan challenged himself to draw a very difficult sneaker with amazing details using one line. It is also very clever how the line of his sneaker snakes out to create the words and his signature! Your eyes want to travel around each of these drawings and follow the path each artist took with his or her pencil.
