So if you read the date on this post, you’ll see that it’s been six months since my last post. For those past six months, I was temping as production artist for a PR agency. I commuted to the job on the Washington, DC Metro, where I spent most days drawing my fellow passengers. Over time, my life/figure drawings skills – once my weakest and most avoided subject – grow as I discarded the academic constraints of life drawing classes for the fun of real world impulse drawing. Armed with a 4×6 sketchbook and a fountain pen, I let ink spill, splay, splatter, and bleed as I attempted to visually map the people around me.
I’ll post a few of the drawings each day to catch up on the past six months. Here’s the first five. Enjoy!
