Hunting - Bra?

Yes, hunting something supportive -- a bra.  Did the headline grab your attention?  Looking for something to sketch is not always easy.  Also on the Scavenger Hunts we try to be a bit different.  My "spiral" was pretty normal.  Looking for "supportive" was a challenge.  Kivrin, from the Scavenger Hunt,  had sketched a cane.  We have plenty of those around but I wanted something more.   Hmmmm.

I sketched yesterday in the big sketchbook with the Micron 05 pen, just a few minutes, freehand.  This is for Scavenger Hunt 355.

Number 8, spiral - the spiral score book I use.
Number 9, supportive - a folded bra

On a good news - bad news story my art link for the day:

Good News:  Kristopher Battles, Marine Corps Artist, was hired to make the Marine Corps Aviation Association Monument. http://www.flymcaa.org/Marine-Corps-Aviation-Monument.aspx  That is great!  Looks like it will be beautiful and meaningful.  You can donate on that page.

You can follow his story and see the project in the making on his blog here:

Kristopher posted many sketches and stories during his time as a Marine Corps Artist.  Browse through his blog.  You can learn about painting, sculpting, sketching in battle and the Marines.

Bad News:  Kristopher was released from active duty recently.  Are they downsizing and cutting the budget this way?  I guess art is always the first to go in education. To me the sketches and paintings mean more than a photo.

I followed Kristopher several years ago. Art and war make for amazing stuff. I stand in awe.

The bra title worked well - caught my attention like you knew it would.

Bag Blog, I'm sure I started folloinw Kristopher from your posting. I had forgotten there were Marine Corps Artists. He and Michael Fay are so good. Now Michael is retired and Kristopher not on active duty. Still making interesting art.

Yes, we have to go for a grabber title!
