The Thirtysomething and the Restless

Posted by Mark in Mark's Sketchbook

,

I think I screwed up and drew myself looking angry, but it’s really just that mild anxiety that washes over me when I think about the future or remind myself how freakin’ old I am!

I also realized I don’t really know how to draw water hitting the ground (and I didn’t sketch that part beforehand, so my failed attempt was in permanent ink). Ah well. Not my best, but I think the class will enjoy it, since it’s been raining all week, and will probably rain most of the weekend.

Relatively Difficult

Not that I can really caricature anybody, but for some reason I find my niece especially difficult to draw. In fact, I couldn’t even bear to show you what I have right now, but I’ll tackle it with fresh eyes tomorrow!

The Lyin’ King

Well, it’s been a whole week, and I still miss Hershel, the creepy mountain lion who guards the Gadsden Hotel in Douglas, AZ.
