I was reading an article in the newspaper, Kristeligt Dagblad, and all of the sudden I started drawing the person the article was about (I forgot...sorry). I did the drawing right there on the newspaperpage with black ballpoint-pen, using the photo from the article as reference. I like the result.
This is the card before I added text above and below the drawing. I also wrote "2006" on the sausage, using black ink and a brush. The drawing is done with pencil and watercolors, and I actually did a small sketch before I started the final drawing... I might try this advanced technique again :)
The person who first identifies the man I have portrayed in this sketch, will be rewarded with a small original sketch. Send your entries to my email address, and be sure to include your postal address. Happy hunting.
Not long after I posted this drawing Maggie from American Visionary ARt Museum provided the right answer, which is Edgar Allan Poe. I did the sketch in a couple of minutes with my new brush pen. Thanks to all for participating. A little reminder to the majority of you all, when I write make sure to include your address, it means be sure to include your address. Thanks.
I seem to draw a lot of angry, or at least dissatisfied men... but I'm like a carefree chipmunk, just peachy... so I don't know were it's coming from. Do you know?
Just jump! we all had to do it before you... come on, it'll make everything a little more easy for you.
The shopping list took such a long time to agree on, that I started drawing a few of the items I had to remember to buy. This might be a good exercise. If we had to draw little pictures of everything we wanted to buy, maybe we would not buy nearly as much... maybe.
I was reading a couple of articles in Kristeligt Dagblad, the newspaper I work for. I had a ballpoint-pen in my hand (I was getting ready for the sudoku on the backpage). These lines just started emerging over the parts of the article I had already finished with.
I just got this pentel brush pen... this is the very first doodle I did with this wonderful little tool, which might give the ballpoint-pen some though competition when it comes to favourite sketch tool.
