Legend—Tom Hardy’s Performance

Left: Actor Tom Hardy as Ron Kray in "Legend." Pentel Brush pen with background of Montana Marker, in an 8 x 8 inch Seawhite of Brighton Sketchbook—which loves brush pen. Click on the image to view an enlargement. If you don’t watch violent movies then don’t read my post today. I’m not going to discuss the […]

Leisure Reading: with Movie Recommendations

Above: No that's not the largest pear in the universe. I was actually sketching the spices we'd just come home with and extended the drawing, loosing my comparison points. My bike was still leaning against another table in the under-construction-kitchen at this time. (The kitchen has been under construction for years, don't ask.) I got […]

Friday Double Feature—Sam Rockwell

Since the actor Sam Rockwell is so different in all his movie rolls it's difficult for me to say something coherent about them except that even when I don't enjoy the writing (as in "A Single Shot") I can't take my eyes off of what he's doing on screen. When I was sitting down to […]

Winning Gracefully? I’ve Got a Lot to Learn, and a Movie Recommendation

Left: Morgan Freeman as "the Boss" in Lucky Number Slevin. This 2006 movie also starring Joss Hartnett, Bruce Willis and Ben Kingsley is just as fun to watch again when you know all the twists. I can't say more or I'd have to add spoiler alert to this post. Pentel Pocket Brush Pen on Fabriano ecological […]

I Love Hairdos—Isaac Mizrahi

Above: Warm up sketch while watching a documentary on Isaac Mizrahi and a 1990s fashion show. I seem to have forgotten to write in the time, which was basically 30-40 minutes before starting the next sketch. All the sketches happen fairly quickly, but then I take time to watch the show. All images in today's […]

Friday Double Feature: What Is Paradise? Or As I Like To Say: Wherever You Go There You Are

Again, I've gone over the limit—instead of a double feature I'm recommending a triple feature (with even another add-on). I couldn't help myself. There are so many movies I could have included in my theme for today: What Is Paradise? Or As I Like To Say: Wherever You Go There You Are I could have […]

Friday Night Triple Feature: Newspaper Reporters

Above: Today's image has nothing today with today's post, I just like to start with an image. I should have watched a Jimmy Stewart movie and drawn a sketch of him. I never have sketched him. I did once, towards the end of his life, end up standing about 30 feet away from him. He […]

Friday Double Feature: Voice-Overs

Above: Today's image has absolutely nothing to do with the movies discussed below. I just like to have images at the start of my posts, and this was some fun I had with the brush pen one night doing quick memory sketches as I watched TV (i.e., I let the TV continue running and try […]
