Problem: This morning I had some architecture homework to finish, which was due tonight. But I couldn't just go down to the basement and finish the work at my drafting table, because I was watching the boy.
Solution: set up shop on the dining room table and let the boy join in! I taped down some paper for him, and gave him his very own ruler and 30/60/90 triangle. Of course.
Remarkably, I drew a complex and precise axonometric rendition of the Vanna Venturi house in this way. Best of all, not only did the boy not mark up my work, but he produced a great piece of toddler art while sitting in the chair beside me.
I wish I could always work this way. (By the way, I slayed them with that drawing in studio tonight. )
In other news: One of my best friend's mother passed away this morning, after a long fight with cancer. Please keep Elio and his Dad in your thoughts for me.
I'll be back to my usual needless pontificating on the subject of menswear soon...promise.
