daily drawing - friday
Happy Friday! Here's my sketch for today!
Paul just got some really great glasses from Warby Parker. When you order from Warby Parker you can ask for 5 try on pairs, so at Paul's birthday party we all voted which ones we liked best on him and the above pair won. Very retro and make him look like Clark Kent. I can't wait to get my new frames but I haven't decided which ones to order for my try on pairs yet.

Have a great weekend!

daily drawing - thursday
Here's my sketch for today!
My Dad has had the same pair of glasses for more than 40 years. Not the same exact pair, but when he goes to get to new frames, he gets the same style. I can't see these type of glasses and not think of him. His are always gold aviator style frames with transitions lenses. I think he'd look really great in a pair of dark rectangle frames, but he won't hear of it.

daily drawing - wednesday
It's Wednesday! Here's my sketch for today!
During my sophomore year of college I went really retro and had a pair of old cat's eye glasses that I bought from an antique store fitted with my lenses. They were a mauve color with sparkle flowers at the corners.

daily drawing - tuesday
Hello Tuesday!
In my freshman year of college I went through a phase where I didn't wear my contacts and I wore glasses. I had a pair of little tiny oval frames, that looked like Ben Franklin glasses.

daily drawing - monday
happy Monday! here's my daily sketch. I'm in the mood to draw eye glasses!
When I was in the 3rd or maybe it was the 4th grade I discovered I was going to need glasses. I remember being really excited at the prospect of getting a nice big red pair just like Sally Jesse Raphael. I did end up with a similar pair, but thy were white and not red. Here's my homage to those glasses.
