This week our art is a timed drawing. I gave myself twenty minutes to do a pencil sketch based on a photo from a trip to New York City. I would describe this sketch as being a sketchy depiction of a big building, and a medium-sized building, with a few other buildings in the background. It is much sketchier than a typical piece that I would use for Monday Morning Art, but adding the element of time–mainly to keep me from burning out my Myasthenia Gravis-afflicted hands like I did last week–made this one acceptable.
Looking rushed is part of the charm. I also did not use a ruler to get straight edges in this one, which should explain the absence of any straight edges. I didn’t even clean up any smudges after I scanned it. This was sketched on copy paper using my now-trusty Blackwing Palamino pencil.

Meanwhile, Monday on The AIR, we are extending the all-night Sunday marathon of The Swing Shift from 7 AM to 3 PM. You’ll get eight bonus episodes to go with the seven that ran from Midnight to 7 AM right before. This is because people like the Swing music, kids.
At 3 PM on Prognosis, Herman Linte brings us a show devoted to the solo and other group music made by members of YES. That’s followed by a classic Prognosis and an evening of NOISE BRIGADE and Radio Free Charleston.
You can listen to The AIR at the website, or on this embedded radio player…
