New Sketches

Nothing beats using the internet for motivation. I was recently asked if someone could use one of my sketch portraits for a flyer for the band Below Jupiter. it’s a very flattering thing to have happen, and a total motivation to get back into a habit that has lapsed in the last year. So I’m trying to pick it up again. Just five minutes before bedtime.

I like the abstract effect I get from trying to avoid lifting the pen. It’s the closest thing I have to a style that I’m developing of my own. Then I enjoy scanning this stuff onto my laptop and colorizing it in different ways. Makes it a little more distinct.

This portrait of Shigeru Miyamoto is a little older. Done in watercolors, and obviously I did lift the pen for this one.
