Right Through You

Using only conte on this black paper remains an interesting challenge. Mainly as the key, for me at least, is to remember to apply light touches as I use the colours and then blend repeatedly. The pretty girl has caught you staring at her and isn't amused. She gives you the devil stare that challenges … Continue reading Right Through You

Deep, Philosophical Sadness

The sadness is mostly in the eyes for this guy, and maybe I took the easy road to connecting the feeling of his being philosophical, because of the beard. The funny thing is that the image that inspired this one was most definitely not Sophocles. Regardless of the source material, something inside me was coming … Continue reading Deep, Philosophical Sadness

Contemplating A Darkness

Something deliciously evil just came over this guy's mind and we are witnessing the beginning of the smile of awareness, as well as the subtle shadow that is growing from the right side of his face. He is looking right at you with a secret knowing. What did you ask him to get this look? … Continue reading Contemplating A Darkness

Myself, or My Brother

I was recently asked about a hand painted perfecto I made about thirty years ago and it got me digging through old pictures of it for the inquirer. While digging I found a small stash of pictures of myself and my brother, Wayne, when we were in our teens. We are 9 years apart, but … Continue reading Myself, or My Brother

Unspeakable Fear

There's a darkness inside of me these days that is only hurting myself and I wonder what it means to do. It terrifies me. I'm starting to see it over my right shoulder. What can I do? When looking at this face I have to wonder if this story of fear isn't a cover story … Continue reading Unspeakable Fear

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

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

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

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
