Jankura Artspace often has special life drawing sessions. This last Friday, we honored MC Escher's birthday with strange geometries as a frame work for the model. I used this as an opportunity to look through these windows at various angles.  For future iterations of this piece, I will need to emphasize the dimensionality of the... Continue Reading →

Two more portraits finished. I'm still working with a ball point pen base, brush pen for the dark and conté pencil for the highlights. Occasional minor color highlights either in pen or pencil.

We decided to do two poses instead. Since... Continue Reading →

One Segment of my Bookshelf
