So I'm walking to my car yesterday with my latest drawing in tow thinking about how pleased I am with the results when a big gust of wind blows it right out of my hands and down the street into traffic and way too fast to chase. I followed a bit but had to give up because of an urgent appointment. Maybe 20 minutes later I decided to drive by just to see if I could see it. I drove 2-3 blocks and as I was ready to give up I see my drawing tumbling by my passenger window. I pulled over and it dutifully attached itself to a parking meter for me to pick up.
Just like a disobedient little dog that wants to run around but in the end is happy to go home. I'm glad I found it and I suppose the experience adds character to the piece.

On a side note: My favorite art in the entire world is Alphonse Mucha's Slav Epic. I searched for years for good large digital copy's and finally found some here, also more great links here.

sketch 40

Sorry for the lack of posts, work has been breaking me down for a while now. And after a sad sports night I had to get something positive so I got the sketchbook, this drawing turned out pretty good. That much black space is hard to cover with my little .3mm mechanical pencil.

If your in the mood for some great art visit this new sight by my favorite artist around Doug Fryer.
