This book is a good example of quick sketches of life happening around the artist. Very gestural, not intended to be finished drawings-just what the artist is observing at that very moment.
The Drawing Book
I love this idea. It is a series of sketches of New Yorkers and it has the feel of people in the big city. Some sketches are incomplete, missing eyes, or either features adding to the feeling of the indidvidual getting lost in the ciy of 9 million people. It has inspired me to want to create a similar project in my hometown of Dundalk, Maryland. I think if I pick subjects at random, I can relay the blue-collar struggle of a drug infested working class town, with a bad reputation, but a good heart. This is my favorite sort of sketch diary that I’ve ever seen. Enjoy it.
Thank you for everyone. And thanks for 2011.
