Smoking

This was drawn from a magazine photo of Billy Bob Thornton. I got bored halfway through and it didn’t end up looking much like him. And honestly, I’m okay with that.

Picasso

The last dead artist I’ve drawn so far, and this was back in October. I’m happy to take suggestions, but the artist has to 1. be dead, and 2. have lived in the age of photography. (So, like, no Titian.) I prefer older ones, especially daguerrotypes and the like, since they’re less likely to have been photoshopped away from reality.

Cats on a Box

One morning my two cats decided that the tipped-over HVAC filter box was The Place To Be. I drew this differently from usual, starting with the full outline of both cats and box, then filling in the details. It ended up kind of geometric, with lots of angles, and yet also a pretty accurate depiction of my kitties.

Frederick Douglass House

Ever on the lookout for new and interesting places to sketch on location, my friends and I ended up at the Frederick Douglass National Historic Site. The tour of the house was fantastic, then afterward we sat on a stump and drew the house. Buildings are hard to draw but I’m actually pretty pleased with this one. And of course I’m always a sucker for National Park stamps.

Dobbin House Tavern

I found myself in Gettysburg one day (as you do), and I stopped by the Dobbin House Tavern for lunch. The food was good but the hot buttered rum was exquisite.
