I love doing these pen portraits after pictures, big or small. This one was after another photograph by Snowdon. When i am not so infatuated with this Moleskine paper, i'll start doing them on watercolor paper and maybe give color a shot.
So i had lent my Telecaster to a (ex-boy)friend and he, in turn, felt entitled to give it away to some kid... in Japan. To make amends (albeit 4 years later), he offered to give me his Stratocaster for an undetermined amount of time. It's sitting on my couch -- and i drew it tonight. I was shooting for a drawing à la Tommy Kane here -- and that's what i ended up with. Pilot pen in Moleskine.
Note to self: purchase an amp.
Drew this from a book by the photographer Snowdon that i found at the public library. That place is a goldmine when i run out of ideas for portraits. I will probably finish it later. Funny enough, i was more than halfway through the drawing when i saw the caption and realized it was Graham Greene. 2B pencil.
I had not done an Every Day Matters challenge in a while (the egg carton appears to be my latest!) and i had fun with this one. The plug is from my hair dryer, which is collecting dust given the fact my hair is about an inch long and no longer necessitates any form of maintenance. :-) Pilot pen in Moleskine.
Did i say how much i like this sketchbook?!!! The pages are so inviting, i can't stop. And sometimes, i fill them with things like my left hand. Drawing hands is such a difficult but fun exercise. V7 Pilot pen in Moleskine.
If "Draw a cabin in the woods" was an Every Day Matters challenge, this would be my entry. :-) This is only the photocopy of the original, which i gave to Paul, the builder and owner of this idyllic little abode in upstate New York.
So i got this book on Bruce Springsteen's unseen photos from the Born To Run album photo shoot by Eric Meola. I really liked the jacket, and i am not sure whether i'll finish it. 2B pencil on sketch paper.
