After Hours Drawing - Some Guy on TV
As part of my New Year's resolution to produce, produce, produce! - I bring you the first in my series, "Sketch a Day"....or "Sketch a Week," or "Sketch Whenever I Get Around to It." (I guess the last option kind of defeats the purpose, but.... hey! It's a start!) This was last night after I was tired of working on my unfinished post Holiday Holiday card. It's called, "SOME GUY ON TV" Actually, it looks absolutely nothing like the guy on TV, but to me, that's not the point. The point is.... uh.... OH! Yes! The point is to draw, draw, draw! I'm not particularly concerned about likenesses. In fact, I prefer non-likenesses. The guy on TV was just a jumping off point. I jumped off of his hair. Just a glimpse and then ---- see what happens on the page. Let it go wherever it goes. Preferably, NOT in the same old direction. We'll see........ Maybe next time, I'll jump off a nose, an eyelid, or a pose. Characters - it's all about new characters. Whatever catches my eye and whatever I think MIGHT lead in a little different direction. It's really ALL about challenging myself.
