I’m going to make a new thread for #SpaceMom #CarrieFisher to illustrate the process of charcoal drawing. I haven’t done it in forever and I forgot how forgiving and wonderful it is. First step: very careful drawing, lots of ruler use, with harder (2B) charcoal pencil.
The next step is kind of terrifying. Block in big areas of shadow using soft willow charcoal sticks. It feels like I’m ruining my drawing. But relax. Everything in charcoal is fixable. Important thing is to set up the shading.
The next step is to take a very stiff hog-bristle brush to the charcoal, and brush and scumble it around. Lots of charcoal dust flies at this point. You can “paint” with the dust on the brush, bringing the charcoal into less shaded areas. Drawing is still there underneath.

A thread:

As I reflect on the assassination of my father 51 years ago today, this photo means a great deal to me. Even as a child, he captivated me. And
now, as his 56 year-old adult daughter, he continues to captivate me. 

I was leaning in then; I am leaning in now. I did not fully grasp who he was then, but now I fully understand. He was a prophet to the world. His words and teachings provide the just, equitable, humane, and peaceful way to create a just, equitable, humane and peaceful world.
What he taught us through his example and through the movement emanated Christ. He was the embodiment of the Christ Spirit. We ignore his words and teachings at our own peril.
