More Hairstyles

  If you’re unable to look away from hair like I am, well then you’re just going to have to watch “Perry Mason” (Original series with Raymond Burr; you can watch the newer series set in the 1930s for hair as well, but there is only one season of that—I hope more shows up—but there […]

OK, I Guess Sometimes I Do Doodle…

A couple months ago I seemed to be living through my own Brendan Gleeson film festival. On this day I was sketching without glasses (if everything is double vision isn’t blurred vision an evening out or smoothing out of the lines?) without stopping the movie. That meant I had to hold things in my mind, […]

Television Recommendation—Dead Still

I’ve been meaning to recommend “Dead Still” for over a year. This show popped up on Acorn.  It’s about a postmortem photographer working in the late 19th century in Ireland. There are some very interesting characters, a mystery about the man’s past which runs through the whole season, and incredible set decoration, wardrobe, and hairstyles. […]

February 2021’s Painting Demo On Patreon

Patreon-RozInterim is my subscription blog where I do drawing and painting demos. For February 2021 I did this portrait shown in this post. I’m excited about it because I love painting with glazes of color, and this sketch gave me the opportunity to demonstrate this to subscribers. Another thing I enjoy about having the Patreon […]

Ink or Paint, Either Way Thank Goodness for Hipsters

  I am so grateful to the younger generination, especially the hipsters who devote real energy to their facial hair. There is nothing more fun for me than sketching beards, and there are great beards out there now to sketch. This young man actually had Dundrearies! Named after a character in the 1858 British play […]

Working with Analogous Colors

Late at night, relaxing and watching British comedy shows I simply have to sketch. This sketch from December 2019 is an analogous color sketch of Johnny Vegas when guesting on “QI.” Everyone needs to watch “QI.” It’s vastly fun, entertaining, and sometimes you even learn something. (Stephen Fry hosted for a number of seasons and […]

Things Our Journals Tell Us

If you look at my journal from January and February 2020 you learn a lot about me.  You learn that I like to use my lunch break to watch a little bit of TV and sketch. You’ll learn that I became fascinated with the young James Corden in “Gaven & Stacey.” You’ll also learn that […]

A Project on Projects: Do It Anyway December

  A couple weeks ago I asked the Tier 3 subscribers on my Patreon Blog what they wanted to talk about in the upcoming webinar. Their responses surprised me: project generation and color theory. OK the color theory questions weren’t surprising, but the project questions were. I sat down and started thinking what to do, […]

Using More Than One Type of Pen

The mood we want to achieve in a finished illustration influences what type of pen we choose to work with—what type of line we want to express. It’s obvious when I started to sketch this I was pulled by interest in the facial hair and short hair on the head, as well as the height […]

What Kind of a Wise Ass Are You?

Look, I’m known as a bit of a wise-ass. No, let’s be honest, I’m a total-wise-ass-pain-in-the-butt-[expletive-deleted]. As such I really respond well to the wise-assery of others. Ryan Reynolds’ movie characters are a particular favorite of mine. Reynolds has the untrainable ability to talk fast, clear, and sassy while still pushing a plot line forward. […]
