My inspiration for this site is also the inspiration for this picture. Over at 365sketches.org, John drew this very cool “sketch” of Jimmy. I love this style of art, and it is completely not my style. I seem to be incapable of doing that kind of breezy, easy-looking sketch. But I wanted to give it a try tonight, so here’s my first “sketch.”
When I was a kid, my dad was a printer, so I was always surrounded by paper. I used to draw all the time. But my dad once told me (paraphrasing here) that black and white drawings were not as good as color. So I have a hard time now doing these b/w drawings.
I’m pleased with this picture (even if it is even busier than I meant…some habits die hard), and I welcome positive and negative feedback on this experiment.
