Jennifer Brookes: Charcoal is my favorite drawing medium. It reminds me of roasting marshmallows on my dad’s charcoal grill in the backyard when I was a kid. I loved to hold the briquettes in my hands and accidentally cover myself in soot. The worst part of using charcoal is probably my favorite…The fine powder sinks into the cracks in my skin and turns my hands and everything I touch black. Even as I type this, after washing my hands repeatedly and rigorously, there’s a gray shade to my skin that makes my hands look aged and knowing. The pictures in this video were taken on Pike Street, facing east towards the Convention Center. They’re leftovers from October 1st, the day I spent at the market with some good friends, in an earlier video.
Eric Peterson: In a lot of ways, I’m giving all of my secrets away with these pieces. You no longer have to ask me who my influences are, you can probably pick them out just by coming here every week. I already told you about Jobim and Yoshihide, and if you’ve been paying attention, you probably picked up on Tiersen or maybe even some Cantelon. From what I’ve posted so far, you’d think all I listened to was jazz and film scores. Obviously that’s not true, and I don’t think I can hide my rock and pop influences any longer. I don’t know if I’m quite at the point where I can say I “grew up” with any specific type of music, but one contender for that is definitely late ’90s and early ’00s post-rock. In particular, I love shimmery, reverb-drenched guitars and triumphant, bombastic drum lines. You’ll notice both of those this week.
