I’ll Draw the Back of Any Stranger’s Head for $29.95

Posted by Mark in Mark's Sketchbook

I know, it seems like I’m being pretty bold turning in homework this chintzy a week late, but whatever, it’s the most laid back class I’ve been in since 3rd grade. Last week’s assignment was a portrait with scenery, so here’s a guy I’d like to call “Dan” waiting for the bus on 86th street.

Believe it or not, all my gesture drawings before today have focused solely on what my niece calls “the peoples,” but I had a lot of newfound fun sketching Dan’s surroundings, long after he had boarded the bus to the East Side to get a benign mole removed by Dr. Rabinowitz.

What? I like my characters to have backstories!

    I really like this, it reminds me of the black and white Paris sketches.
