"Hey, Guess Whose Back..."

Here's something sort of classically serene...

En Garde...

I've often wondered if I could pull of breeches...not so much the hose, but I guess tube socks would be a touch boorish.

Who...Are You? Who? Who...Again?

Much along the same impulse that led me to draw Teddy Roosevelt, I present a quickie of Roger Daltrey. Yup. That Roger Daltrey.

The Week Ends...With a Striped Hyena.

A quickie's's only fitting...

"Every reform movement has a lunatic fringe" - Teddy Roosevelt

Perhaps this post would've been more appropriate to the elections yesterday...but I remembered it too late in the evening.

Ok, this moment with the former President got a little more involved. I couldn't tell you what it is about him that has had me return to him as a subject...perhaps it's that larger than life quality he had about him. Sargent's portrait of him is probably my favorite of the presidential portraits. I especially love the fact that the pose and location were found when Teddy turned to Sargent because he was growing impatient over their expedition to find a place to paint it.

"Do nothing which is of no use." - Musashi

Another experiment with the Sumi brush. While it's nowhere near where I'd like to be withone, I wouldn't call it of no use. And you may think it cliché to draw a samurai with said brush as practice, but you've got to have all that stuff to feel like you're doing something with that brush. It's...appropriate...

In any event, I'll have to keep trying...
