The New Hip
Well, made it through my full hip replacement surgery on Thursday (three days ago), and working at getting back up and running again (hopefully *literally* soon!).  Falling a bit behind here on responding to comments and seeing what people have been posting, but should have some time soon to get to those things. In the mean time, just focusing on learning to walk again without a wobble....   ;-)

Off to Italy Again
Once again, I am preparing to head to Italy for a three month arts program.  Two years ago, I went as a student, mostly so I could go through the experience of the program myself before trying to lead others through it.  This time, I will be part of the teaching/mentoring staff.  Looking forward to a group of around 17, mostly young art students from around the world (dance, visual arts, music and drama), gathering to work together, understanding themselves and the world around us more deeply, so that we can reflect that through our art. One interesting thing is that I have already worked with a couple of the participants on previous trips,

Empty accounts on Followers?
I've heard other Deviants here commenting on this phenomenon before, but never took that much notice since I'd never personally seen it.  However, I am seeing more and more accounts created and then following people (such as myself), with no further activity on the account itself.  I can understand a person creating a "lurker" account, doing "faves", but not posting anything themselves, but these are completely empty accounts.  I've even gone back later to see if things have been added, but they are still empty. If these aren't real, legitimate accounts, then it artificially inflates my "followers" numbers, but I can't see any way that they

Thank you!  Yeah, there are some other figurative sculptors here, some of which I am following, but you're right, there isn't a lot of good, traditional figure sculpture.

My idea of Heaven is to wake up, have a good breakfast, and spend the rest of the day drawing.

heh...  Nice addition! ;-)

I long ago realized that there is a beautiful fusion of free creativity and hard science when it comes to creating really good art, and all of it must be put on with plain old sweat and hard work.  Tutorials like this make that hard work significantly less frustrating and more focused on actually learning what we are doing.  Thanks again!
