ITP ceiling lamp

I did pretty well last year with the rule that all my drawings had to be done outside my apartment. This year, I’m thinking that maybe all of them should be at school . . . except that I don’t really spend very much time at school and don’t feel comfortable there, so that may be too weird. Anyway, this is one of the ceiling lamps in what is known as the lobby.

Leaving ample room for improvement over the course of the month.

The problem with setting myself the challenge of doing all of this month’s drawings outside my apartment is that . . . on some weekend days, I just don’t leave my apartment.

Today was one of those sort of days, but because I take my DrawMooing very seriously, I made myself go outside, walk around for about fifteen minutes to warm up, and then park myself on a stoop to draw.

My neighborhood is lousy with stoops, but my building doesn’t happen to have one. And I didn’t want to freak anybody out or get yelled at for sitting on some stranger’s steps, so I ended up on the steps of the one public building on my street, which is some kind of medical center. And this doorway across from me was the only thing I could see that was lit well enough to draw.

To give you an idea of how pathetic my night vision is: I thought I was using a black pen.

Anyway. If I hadn’t been drawing this, I would never have noticed the skeleton hanging beneath the lefthand lamp; there are also some kind of Halloween decals on the glass of the doors. In a few days, it’ll probably be replaced with Christmas decorations. My neighborhood is very big on decorations.
