A hodge-podge mish-mash


A 'mish-mash' of sketches from various pages in my sketchbook.

A few notes:
The Dark shapeless blob looks cooler in person than it does on the scan... All textured and moody...(Likewise, I am more interesting than I appear on this blog)

I draw the back of too many heads...I know.

The skull wasn't drawn because I secretly want to draw comics or "ink a tat"... Or whatever.. I didn't draw it because I'm a dark person...into witches and barbarians....I drew it because there was a teenage boy in the train seat right next to me... I knew he was watching me draw... And, I admit it... I wanted to draw something a 15 year old would think was cool. Not another sketch of somebody's head.

Lastly, the explanation for the penguin - It's a flight-less, Antarctic sea bird.

Your plea on EDM worked... so an angel got it's wings, I saw your drawing of the back of my head... and what else? I can't remember... Nice drawings.. never would have dawned on me to try to impress a 15 year old.. did it work? Was he impressed?

Great blog... keep up the good work.

Keep hope alive.... your plea worked for me too. When I finally get my blog going I will have to use a similar plea. :o)
The back of the head sketches are each unique- keep up these cool "portraits."

I heard there was a party here so I came too!
VERY nice "hodge-podge" I love your style- well observed drawings.

I can't imagine sketching while riding in a moving vehicle. My lines are squiggly enough without adding motion to them! But you do a great job. Love your sketches.
