Wow, the drawing from above is pretty old, from one of my first studies sketchbooks. From the artistic point of view I feel quite 'naked' to publish it here with all its imperfections and the beginner's naivete.
As much as I enjoy dressing up, I have to admit that being naked is being human in the purest form. I started to read "The Book of Tea" by Kakuzo Okakura (as you could notice on my facebook fanpage) and I'm slowly falling into giving the cup of tea special admiration. I also want to share with you fragment of the book that moved me:
"People are not taught to be really virtuous, but to behave properly. We are wicked because we are frightfully self-conscious."
