cardigan on the floor
As a child I loved reading Louise Fitzhugh's Harriet the Spy books. They were delightfully illustrated with quirky ink drawings, and I would pore over the pages for hours, trying to figure out how to draw like that.
In my early twenties I experimented with line drawing, and some of the stronger pieces came from a series I did of clothes thrown on the floor. I remember this particular cardigan; it was a label called "Non-Fiction," and I bought it myself with money I made working as a lifeguard in the summer. It was a pink sweatshirt cardigan, and was stereotypically 80s: oversized and boxy.
