Sketches Have No Shame
The new Bronzino exhibit at The Metropolitan Museum of Art is really incredible. This is a truly rare chance to see the underworking process one of the greatest artists who ever lived. If you get a chance, definitely check it out. He draws backs better than anyone else alive, which is no easy feat!
This is a sketch of one of his studies for a larger painting. I really messed up the arm, but the rest of it is pretty close. There is also an illuminated manuscript collection that is truly the most incredible exhibit of its kind.
The Broken Light is still under construction, but it's being closer to becoming a real thing than it was in February. It should be up and running by the middle of March. To access it, you can go to toppledidols.com and click on The Broken Light. There ain't much else there, but soon, kids, soon.
