Here’s a colored pencil drawing of one of my favorite bands, the Black Keys. I heard an interview with them on an NPR show called American Roots last weekend. I don’t remember everything they talked about, but they said they loved 1950s nostalgia. I’m fond of the 50s too, so I decided to draw a picture of the Black Keys and throw in some classic Americana.
This post might not make any sense at all. I have a miserable headache right now. I’m going to bed. I hope you’re all doing well.
Here’s a caricature of Data and Captain Picard (the head on the left) from Star Trek: The Next Generation. I drew it in my sketchbook last night with a felt-tip pen and a Sharpie Marker.
I found an old sketchbook under my coffee table that I had thrown aside last year and forgotten. It has lots and lots of blank pages in it, so now I’m filling them up.
Hope you’re having a great week.
Here’s a photo of my drawing of Laurali.
Not long ago, I was sitting in a waiting room while a mechanic changed the oil in my car. After I got tired of watching The Weather Channel, I picked up a copy of Sports Illustrated that was lying on the table. I read an article about Lindsey Vonn, the skiing champion, and decided I wanted to draw her. Here it is. (Hope you had a nice weekend.)
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.
