Actors can be mercurial, artists can change the way they want to see things just as quickly. In the span of an evening last February I tried out three ways to look at actor Michael Sheen on paper. (When I drew these sketches I was watching an episode of “Prodigal Son,” which I enjoyed and […]
Yep, hats; just me drawing people with hats on. Sometimes I worked in my current journal, sometimes I worked on loose sheets for my loose sheets journal. I found some while moving old digital file. Some (when they were on loose sheets) might end up on the wall. I stopped looking for people in hats […]
I got to doodling one night in a journal I’d bound with 90 lb. Fabriano Artistico Hot Press watercolor paper. And then I started to doodle with paper scraps. Pick up something you have at hand, just to break the rhythm, or simply because you want to play.
