Sketches: People at the Library

March 17, 2019

Well, I’m still alive. I’ve been struggling with the library mural concept I mentioned last time. Nothing solid is formulating as yet, so I decided to spend time at the library itself, just drawing people, and see what might come from that. Here are a few of the better sketches.


Some New Random Sketches

November 20, 2018

These are four random sketches I made over the last weekend. Some were made at the library, and one in my friend Sam’s bedroom.


New Sketch: Curtis on Guitar

July 28, 2018

Apologies for being away for so long. I had to work on a project to get some spending money. Now it’s time to get back into some art making, so often not the same thing, unfortunately.

Here’s a sketch I made up recently of my friend Curtis from a frame of video I shot of him playing some Blues, ink on 11 x 17″ paper.


New Sketch: Cathy on a Barstool

July 9, 2018

This is a sketch from yesterday of my friend, Cathy, scanning through an art supply catalog. She’s a sculptor. I drew her arms first so she could continue to flip through the magazine while I drew the rest of her. She appreciated that, I think.


New Drawing: Berenice’s Hair by Borghi

July 3, 2018

It was too hot to step outside today, so I spent time looking for something to draw online, and found a photo of a sculpture by Ambrogio Borghi called “Berenice’s Hair” (Chioma Di Berenice) that I thought would work. Drawn with sumi ink with a Pentel water brush, @ 10 x 17″.


New Sketches: People in Bastrop TX

July 2, 2018

I was visiting a friend down in Bastrop, TX yesterday, and we spent some time at a nearby park and cafe. She got some sun, and I made a few sketches of the locals. I used a Prismacolor Premier layout marker.


New Drawing: Portrait of Roberto

June 14, 2018

I asked my friend, Roberto, to sit for a drawing, and this is the result. Most of the drawing was made with a water brush filled with ink on thin cardstock paper. I wasn’t expecting to do the rest in a thin wash, or else I would have stretched the paper beforehand. As a result, it curled up a bit like a potato chip, but still came out okay. I’ll mount it to a backing board later.
