Two New Sketches

May 25, 2010

Here are a couple recent drawings. Uniball Gelstick on letter size paper.

The one of the two kids is from a photo of mine taken at an airport. The hand and guy rubbing his eyes were drawn while watching C-SPAN TV. The foot is from a Time magazine photo.



  1. These sketches are fantastic – I love it!!
    Well done!

  2. Hands have always been quite difficult for me to draw, so the first sketch is a source of awe.

  3. Thanks for the comments.

  4. I especially admire the lower leg/foot sketch; it’s terrific. You have an interesting cross-hatching style; it’s not the norm is it? More like x’s, effective. Is that something from your illustration profession? Nancy

  5. Thank you, Nancy.

    Most ink illustration tends to favor a very “clean” line, which I do also (to some degree) for my more “serious” drawings, but my sketches are kept very loose.

    I may write up a more in depth post on the subject soon.

    • Good ( to the writing up of an amplified description…like you’ve not got enough on your plate)

  6. beautiful rendering and use of line to portray depth and dimension!

    • Thank you.
