Multiple Personas

November 30, 2009

This is actually two people. The first got up and left, so I borrowed another person’s head. Sort of grafted it on. Not sure if it works. Some people say it looks evil.


Sniffles (pen & ink)

Everyone, it seems has a sniffle, cold, flu or some form of winter-related malady. Hoping the sun pokes through soon. It’s been too grey for too long around here. Good for the garden though.


Couple of Commuters (pen & ink)

Not much to say about this one. Couple of people reading the newspaper. They may know each other. Maybe not.


Thriller (pen & ink)

Nothing to do with Michael Jackson. This is a slightly more representative drawing than that captured in a previous post. I’ve sketched this lady a few times. She frequently sits beside another woman – also an avid reader.


Walcha’s Got Everything (pen and ink wash)

I drew this at the Gunnedah markets, in the same session as the Apple Eater lady. In this instance, the subject was a stall owner who was chatting to a companion. They were lamenting the sorry state of affairs in the locality, whereby the neighbouring town of Walcha allegedly receives every benefit imaginable to mankind while their locality does it hard. I can’t comment other than to say that either is a nice place to visit. Had a flying saucer landed in the middle of the markets, her response would have been, “a bigger one landed in Walcha last week.” Behind it all, she was having the time of her life, though.

In this sketch, I did my best to capture her weathered, somewhat resigned and slightly laconic disposition.


Study in line and form

Figure drawing study

Lately, have attempted to use line to model form. Finding it harder to than expected. It’s always easier to fall back to old habits and the safety of what you know.


Lonsdale Lady

Lonsdale Lady

My bag and I are the hottest thing ever, except maybe my shoes. My hair – that’s pretty cool too. Unusual, without being overstated. That’s what I said to the hairdresser – he’s very good, I’ll go there again. The bag though, sets it all off. No? What would you know about fashion anyway?
