Last sunday some friends and I had a short drawing meetup. This is one of the results I came up with.
Black & blue ink / A4
A simple portrait study, drawing from life. Thanks to my friend for wanting to pose for an hour..
Graphite / A3 paper
Figured I’d start 2016 with a super positive drawing eh?
Ink on A4
Keeping it simple. This one’s way off in the face for some reason but I don’t really mind. Quite like the pose.

I really wanted this study, based on a beautiful portrait, made for the spring Blackout in 2015 by photographer and artist Rakeem Cunningham, to turn out well. He does these fantastic portraits with plants and flowers… but I started quite poorly by fucking up the scale of the photo and therefore not providing room for the flowers he used. Didn’t want to give up on it though but I do feel like I could have done a way better job. Nonetheless, in the spirit of keeping myself drawing, I think I should share it with you guys.
Graphite / A4.
A quick self portrait, pretty rough & “unfinished”, uneven eyes and all. Dunno if it looks like me.
