All The Ways We Hide

We wear masks and often wear masks to cover the mask we only want partly seen. We hide parts of ourselves in shadows to keep up false mysteries. We turn our faces and bodies to de-emphasize the faults we see in ourselves, or to highlight what we like the most. We make-up or tan ourselves … Continue reading All The Ways We Hide

Beauty is Two Dimensional

She's stick thin and is meant to be a blank canvas upon which beauty is painted. By herself, this model is meant to have little substance. I've drawn her with almost no contour and decided to catch her as she's turning in profile, where she might just disappear. For more of my drawings please visit … Continue reading Beauty is Two Dimensional

Just, Joy.

Another enigmatic personage. She grew from some outer source, the muse again, I'm sure. I had already done a few drawings this day and had a very productive day all around, so I was quite please with myself. I was feeling happy and felt like drawing out that emotion. I'm not sure if what this … Continue reading Just, Joy.

Finger

I stared at this guy for a long time, before hearing any kind of story. It was very hard to hear his voice. So, I asked him to tell me. He only gave me his little smile. I begged for something, anything, just one thing... That's when he whispered his name: "Finger", and nothing else. … Continue reading Finger

Do You See Me?

There's a sadness that's deep inside people who feel unremarkable and un-noticed. I've felt this most of my life and work hard at changing that mindset-habit. I've been lucky enough to meet many outstanding and talented people who also feel this way and I am constantly amazed that they see themselves this way. We have … Continue reading Do You See Me?

Wisdom

Could this guy be a monk, a yogi, a wizened guru, or just some old guy? Whatever and whoever he is, he looks wise. There's that added calm he emotes that gives the feeling he might be wiser than us. The photo I took of this older guy had him much farther from the lens, … Continue reading Wisdom

The Mad Stylist

There's a madness in popular style and it seems to me the character of the stylist must one of near madness for anyone to accept their visions. Perhaps it's the freedom to live outside the conformity box that we find so appealing. The more out there they are, the more we can fantasize ourselves away … Continue reading The Mad Stylist

Backstage Routines

I was considering other titles to make there story more obvious: "Putting On My Face" or "Before The Show". This androgynous actor is backstage in front of their makeup mirror, getting ready for the big performance on stage. They have a routine that prepares them to enter the skin of the character they are playing. … Continue reading Backstage Routines

You’re Sweet

Ok, I was sort of spying on a couple next to me at the coffee shop. Not close enough to hear what they were saying, but the girl's facial expression showed she was enjoying the person siting in front of her. I chose to draw the scene at the moment she lifted her chin, smiled, … Continue reading You’re Sweet

Voices In Her Head

I was hoping to enhance a softer face with white eyes, but there whole tilting head, thin neck, and subtle smile turned those empty eyes into insanity. She seemed to look right through you, as if talking to something behind you. I hope I never. meet her in a dark alley, or any alley for … Continue reading Voices In Her Head
