John Hurt

John Hurt

I never really intended for this blog to be a drawing-in-every-post type of thing, but it kind of evolved into that — at least for the time being. I want to get back to writing humorous essays about life and other observational stuff. I love writing that kind of thing.

Anyway, here’s another drawing from the Moleskine sketchbook. I did this one early in the morning/late last night. (Which is why my brain is a little bit foggy right now. I hope this post makes sense.) This is a picture of John Hurt, who played the Forgotten Doctor in the new 50th anniversary episode of “Doctor Who.” I was eager to draw his face because there’s so much fun to be had with it. There’s so much character in it. I like the little droopy eyes and the crazy hair and the mustache/goatee that looks like Spanish moss. I had a blast drawing it.

I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving. Thanks for reading.

Here’s a drawing of Stephanie Abrams from The Weather Channel. This one isn’t a sketchbook picture. I actually drew this on a decent-sized piece of paper. I mailed it to her yesterday.

I hope you’re all doing well and enjoying your leading-up-to-Thanksgiving season.

I hope November has been good to you so far. Ever since I finished Citizens of Purgatory and uploaded it to Amazon, I’ve more or less collapsed in an exhausted heap. I love to write, but I’m happy that I don’t have a writing project hanging over my head at the moment. It’s nice to just float along and enjoy life, rather than hunkering over my laptop, editing, editing, editing. The other night, I sat on the couch and ate popcorn and drank eggnog and watched The Miracle on 34th Street. I’ve never seen it before. I really liked it. I’ve also been drawing a lot lately. Here are two pictures I’ve done. One is Oprah. The other is Paula White.

Thanks for reading. Have a nice week.
