Granny Bling in Pen and Ink

Couldn’t help but notice this lady’s huge chain. She also had a virtual swag of glasses – changed them every few minutes, depending on the task at hand.


Leisure Suit in Pen and Ink

August 27, 2009


This drawing is almost bordering on caricature. The man steadied himself with a cane and so wasn’t terribly mobile. I thought he would present the perfect subject; interesting and not terribly active, so plenty of time to study and capture the detail of the facial features and so on. Almost as soon as I started sketching, my pen leaked all over my hands. Sometimes these things are meant to happen. Rather than stop, I just used the ink on my fingers to smear in the background and to denote a little texture on the suit.

Catching up on forty winks, nicely wrapped up, after a hard day at work or just walking around town.
