This was influenced by a series of sketches that the amazing Skottie Young had done on his website several years ago. I was playing with 'sketchy' and energetic lines and did this as an hommage to his (ever changing) style. It's fascinating to try different things and/or styles because it helps to inform your own approach to material. The brown, textured paper adds a lot to the feel. I like the way this came out... Enough to redo it in a different style and try a new approach to the drawing. Maybe with colours. And, with more volume and contrasts.

This is another attempt at the bald dude from below. A "Sunday Sketch Session" that I ended up taking much further than I intended. Good to stretch a little bit and try something new. I'm trying more of an angular feel in this sketch. Working for a little more balance, contrasting straight lines against curves. Pencils, inked with Faber-Castell PITT markers, scanned, then dropped into Photoshop.

Damn. Time does fly... Last year I went through a series of crazy ups and downs. Much love to all who held it down for me. Blessings for real Aiya and breddren. It's been an education. I have much to discuss, but, most importantly, I've got stacks of new work. It is the best therapy for the most brutal conflicts. Creation IS the law of the universe. I'm convinced. But, enough on that, it's just a privilege and a blessing to be here to share with you all.
This drawing is a mystic that came to me in a dream...And, as the things happen, his Ankh would shrink everytime I looked at it...I'll take the hint...
