december 7, 2010: …hi.

My and Drew’s illustrious philosophy prof told us that Michel Foucault wrote a book called Discipline and Punish. She also told us not to read it on the subway because apparently it attracts the wrong kind of friends.

december 6, 2010: not the commandant

Here is a military woman based on Franz Kafka’s (totally messed up) story “In the Penal Colony.”

december 3, 2010: asterion

“The House of Asterion” is a recasting of the myth of Theseus and the Minotaur. It’s really sad and beautiful and totally awesome.

Norman Bates from Psycho is a taxidermist. I sketched the owl in my notes because it seemed particularly ominous.

november 23, 2010: scottie’s women

The three female figures of Vertigo: Midge, Madeleine, and Judy. Each represents a different point on the spectrum of sexualization, illustrating Scottie’s problems with women and sexuality. Midge is the nerdy, motherly one—although she loves Scottie, he will never see her in a sexual light. Judy is the hypersexualized one whom Scottie ends up fetishizing as Madeleine, who represents the unreal, unattainable fantasy of femininity for which Scottie constantly searches throughout the film.

The heading next to this drawing was “More About Vertigo.” It’s Scottie in his nightmare, falling into the spirally abyss.

november 23, 2010: indubitably

The arts editor from the local paper spoke to our class. She mused that perhaps opera and the symphony were enjoyed by an older, richer, more professional audience. That means monocles, right?

december 3, 2010: “the interloper”

I actually didn’t read this story. (¡Lo siento, Profe!) But from what I gathered in class, these two crazy brothers fought over this woman and determined that the logical solution was to kill her. It was kind of a critique of machismo and the objectification of women. So, here are two drawings of Juliana alive, and one dead with a quote from the story.
