Hairdos on Television

Don’t get me started. Hairdos on television. So many, so little time. Here’s a sketch of one of my favorite young actors, Marcus Scribner, who plays “Junior” on “Black-ish.” Through the seasons he’s had different hairstyles. His headgear obscures much of the hairdo here, but I was struck by the small dreads just appearing over […]

Draw the Same Person Over and Over, Especially if He Makes You Laugh

I’ve been thinking a lot about humor lately, and the need for it in daily life.  I try to get as much humor in my life as possible. Sometimes the only way it is possible is to find it on TV. Everyone knows I love improv. I watch and rewatch episodes of “Whose Line Is […]

Things to Do in the Current Pandemic: Get a New Eyeball

In an episode of Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee (available on Netflix) he interviews comedians as he spends time with them doing just that, getting coffee. (There are some side trips too.) I had to pull some examples for a class I was teaching and I re-read this journal page from 2018. (It’s […]

Icelandic actor Porsteinn Gunnarsson as Eiríkur in "Trapped." Pentel Brush pen, watercolors, and acrylic marker.

Even More Television Viewing

Yep, a couple more TV show reviews today. I’ve been trying to keep track of what I’ve written about already.  Earlier this fall I watched “Trapped” on Amazon Prime. The action takes place in a remote Icelandic town. A headless torso shows up just as a storm blocks the town from outside help. The police […]

Actor Brad William Henke in his role as the vicious prison guard in "Orange is the New Black." 9 x 12 inch Fabriano Venezia journal. Sepia Pentel Color Brush and water to dilute ink.

More Television Viewing in October

While under the weather in October I used my couch time productively to binge watch the remaining episodes of the Netflix Comedy-Drama “Orange is the New Black.” I’ve enjoyed the show since it first came out. Set in a women’s prison the show has a strong cast of female leads and over the first five […]

A sketch of Martin, the star of "Downward Dog" television series. Pencil, pen, and watercolor on Stonehenge.

Martin: A Dog’s Eye View

I was disappointed to learn that ABC’s “Downward Dog,” was cancelled.  Huge mistake. This was a gem of a show if ever there was one. The show follows the life of the dog Martin as he talks (to the camera and in voiceover) about his life, his philosophy, and  the way his world revolves around […]

Water-soluble ink brush pen sketches from "Search Party," on a page spread in an 8.27 x 11.69 inch (A4) size Hahnemühle Nostalie Journal. (Pre-painted background texture.)

Some Television Recommendations

There are so many television shows I’ve been watching lately—it’s hard to know where to start. I will try to avoid spoilers as much as possible. “Search Party” came to my awareness through a review in the New Yorker. The season was already over (fall 2016) and when I tried to watch the on-demand free episodes I […]

Above: Mah-Jing Wong from the current season of Project Runway. He's one of my favorites this season, despite almost always looking scared. He's had some bad deals but he's hanging on. I hope to catch him smiling at some point. Pentel Brush Pen—squeezy barrel, dye-based, water-soluble ink—sketch in a 8.27 x 11.69 inch (A4) size Hahnemühle […]

QI: Beyond a Game Show

Left: Quick 9 x 12 inch sketch of comedian Phill Jupitus wearing a hat on a 2005 episode of "Q.I." (Note: he does have two ls in his first name. I didn't realize that when I labeled the sketch.) Brush pen with color added with 15 mm Montana Acrylic Marker; on Fluid Easy-Block 140 lb. […]
