brought out from hiding

Yesterday I looked through some older drawings I've done. They were hiding in their portfolio out of sight. Many of these were done burning the late night oil while studying at Academy of Art University. I still remember my roommate Katy and I staying up late to work on our drawing projects. Before we each had studio space at AAU we worked from home in our shared bedroom/ art studio. This was one of the joys of moving to the Bay Area with astronomical housing costs. We didn't mind though- We were in art school, loving every minute. Our floor was covered with gauche paint samples, paint brushes, charcoal pencils, drawings, clothes, and Arnie (adorable mascot) running around approving it all.
