Next up in the book is the drawing from a live nekkid model - which, while I've done a lot in the past, I'm still happy to do again - but what I really want to do is go do Dr. Sketchy - and the Kansas City Dr. Sketchy takes a break in the summer because their space is unairconditioned. So I'm just going to put those 2 weeks on hold for now and come back to them in a few months when Dr. Sketchy starts up again. Cuz, yunno - why pay lots of money for a live drawing class when you could pay a tiny bit of money and see burlesque! So this week I began my 100 faces. I think I only got about 15 done - but she says you can take a few months to get through it :) I find that I'm almost always disappointed when I'm just drawing out of my head, but I can be pretty happy if I'm looking at a photo or a real person for inspiration. We have a huge photo book, darn, I've forgotten the artists name, but it's full of faces - so I've been opening to a random page and drawing whatever I find. That's been fun. Now I need to get more into the mixed media business and get away from just whatever pen I have lying around :) I've been really wanting to play with watercolor lately. so that will probably be the next set. click the photo to see more faces on flickr.

The night I made these I really didn't like them, but by the next morning I'd begun to warm up to them. At first the toilet paper blobbing seemed to be just messing up an already mucky process - but now I enjoy the texture. It almost looks pixilated where the ink picked up the texture from the toilet paper. These are the six that I have deemed successes. Click the photo to see the ones I was less happy with and how I altered them. (btw - this is taken from a photo of Gary Oldman from an old ad for Tinker Tailer Soldier Spy :)
