liars can figure and figures can lie!

"Liars can figure and figures can lie" -- the opening statement from my Statistics professor. I think of that comment every time I walk into a figure drawing session. Not that they are lies, per se, but little exaggerations, inaccuracies, and interpretations of reality are in every figure drawing. I love it. Maybe these little lies make my drawings distinctive from others' work.

Newsprint and charcoal and a great model made for a great afternoon at Hipbone Studio. Exciting things are happening at my monotype class, too. Figure work there, too, and more to think about. Design, figure, story. I love it all!

Speaking of lying, did you happen to catch this TED talk, "How to Spot a Liar" by Pamela Meyer? Watch it and you, too, can become a better LIE-SPOTTER!

Nice demonstrative sketch. And that ain't no lie.
