Several months ago, I sketched a figure that I liked quite a bit. However, it had an unfinished look. It was a figure in need of a background.
I finally decided that since this particular model has a thoughtful demeanor, that I should place her in a setting such as a library or a dorm room. My kitchen table, along with a computer, book, and pad, gave me enough to work with. As I worked it brought back memories of writing papers for school, hence the title.
