We’re almost done here in Rome. We spent the afternoon at the student residences (in our ad-hoc studios) talking through some last minute ideas, techniques and strategies for rendering, line-weights and lighting. Sanity levels are pretty good; humor (delirium?) is high – music-wise, things seem to reflect this; students were playing a Taylor Swift song, with a loud, bleating goat edited in sporadically to see whether or not I would notice (*hysterical laughing from students*) I’m fairly certain I heard some “Rage against the Machine” and Haddaway’s “What is Love – Baby don’t Hurt Me” played as well.
Expect more of the same over the next few days, I imagine.
The weather (like the student playlist) was all over the place today; but on the way back from the residences, the sun came out briefly and did some really nice things with Rome’s architecture. A good sign for our last few days here, I hope.
