Something On His Mind

I took a trip to my college's library today to sketch. I'm really surprised that I got as many good drawings as I did; it was really pretty dead in there for a while. At least three or four different people sat down at my table, right in my line of vision, when there were three other tables empty. I was starting to wonder if they *wanted* me to draw them.

So the library is my new drawing location. With as much spare time as I'm going to have this spring, I should end up with a lot of drawings. I should probably buy a new sketchbook tomorrow. The one I'm using now is almost full.
Anyway, here are some of the sketches I did today:


"Georgia On My Mind"...(literally.)
I did these two drawings separately, and they ended up connecting. I didn't realize until later that it looks like the man has a woman growing out of his head.
But I like it this way.


Most of the people in the library were on computers.


This guy was further away than the others, so I couldn't get a very detailed sketch of him. I like this, though; it reminds me of the quicker sketches I did of people back in high school.


Some quick sketches of the staff that were milling around. The woman on the bottom left was answering the phone.

Just looked at all the pictures and entries on your blog (which I found via your mother's site). Amazing work. MY daughter's a red head... so all those Katies were especially appealing. Your work reminds me of Nancy Burkert a bit... and the sketches help me know I'm on the right track, even if it's 30 years late. The brush-pen pool players are completely different, and awesome...

Its sort of like riding a bicycle, if you used to wobble a lot, you still will
