I Got Hypnotized by Kenyon’s Beauty So I Drew it Blind

Kenyon College is a picturesque campus. The gothic architecture, the sprawling lawns, the lush trees; all of these things make up the campus’s sheer, unadulterated beauty. Seriously, the drone can confirm. But what if we became too entranced by the beauty of Kenyon? What if the beauty pulled us in and fixed us to stare at the underside of Pore’s butt cheek for eternity?

Well it happen. I sat down to draw the buildings on Kenyon’s campus and got hypnotized. My eyes glazed over. My mouth opened slightly in awk. My felt tip pen made contact with my paper. My pupils dilated. My hair stood on end. I drew. I never took my eyes off the left buttocks of the angel playing the trumpet outside of Rosse for even for a moment and these are the results:

The DKE bullseye is the most solidified aspect of this drawing, which is somewhat harrowing…

Hotdogs of legs? More like ionic columns or kidney beans featuring tiny, lumpy Pore?

I don’t spend much time in the science quad but this looks right to me.

My nude figure drawing experience really comes out here.

Yes, they look like turtle, chicken hybrids but I mean, have you seen those renaissance angels? No difference.

Kenyon’s most prized possession. Turtles all the way down my friend.

No, these drawings were not done by an arthritic dog as you might have thought, but rather by a girl just trying her best and taking in the beauty. So absorb it. But don’t get hypnotized.
