One of my Days

In 1978 Wilhelm M. Busch published a small edition with a collection of drawings, depicting moments from one day of his life. Busch gets up in the morning, takes the bus to the Hamburg art school, where he teaches life drawing. In the afternoon he visits the circus to sketch animals.
He returns home, watches some TV with his wife before going to bed.
Busch had given his students this kind of assignment before to draw key moments from one day in their lives. Eventually he went through the exercise himself, and here are just a few illustrations from that effort.
What a fantastic idea for student homework! It teaches you how to analyze and draw what you do on a given day of your life. I encourage everybody to do the same thing, I know I will, as soon as I find some time. Great challenge!
