Seminar Sketches

March 11, 2017

I snapped a few photos the other day at a seminar on aging (don’t ask,) and here are a couple drawings I made of people in the audience. I decided to use wax crayons.


Figure Drawings of Allan

September 26, 2016

Met a new model a few days ago by the name of Allan, and here are a couple drawings I made of him.



These were made with wax crayon on 24 x 18″ newsprint paper.


Some Old Figure Drawing Sketches

September 22, 2015


Still working on the back wall of the new ink drawing, but there’s nothing much to post yet, so I thought I’d dig out a few old figure drawing sketches to keep it active here. These were drawn with wax crayon on 12 x 18″ newsprint. I should have a new update coming on the ink drawing in a couple days.



New Drawing: Portrait of Annah

October 14, 2012

A new drawing to show here of my friend Annah. It’s made with Conté crayon on rag paper, approximately 12 x 14 inches.

UPDATE: I uploaded a better scan of the image above.


Drawing Final: Tanya’s Bamboo Curtain

August 23, 2012

At last I’ve managed to squeeze in enough time to finish the drawing; although, I may go back to alter the curtain some. I think it needs some brightening up, or add more highlights.

I’ve enjoyed working with this wax crayon medium on this project, and I learned quite a bit in the process about how to handle it more effectively, so I definetly want to return to it again.


Drawing Update 5: Tanya’s Bamboo Curtain

August 14, 2012

Almost there. I still need to work on her face and right arm areas, so I should wrap this up on the next post. Haven’t decided if I need to scratch the bamboo as well. Maybe…


Drawing Update 4: Tanya’s Bamboo Curtain

August 7, 2012

This distressed method of scratching away the wax is a slower process than I’m used to, but it’s worth it to get the look that I want.

Here I’m just showing the new areas of her right, left thigh, and buttock. Once I get the area the way I like it, I coat it with a layer of the Dorland’s medium to help set it so it won’t easily get scratched away accidently.
