Here's a David Bowie sketch I did years ago for a commission I did of Bowie and Mick Jagger together. My client ended up picking another sketch, but I still like the way this one came out. It's important for me to try to get the psychology of the subject into the caricatured portrait, and when they are a celebrity, to also show a glimpse of their persona or how they are perceived to the general public.

Christopher Walken Sketch

This was the original sketch for my second Christopher Walken painting- I just found it today while looking for some other sketches I had to e-mail out.

Here's a couple of sketches I did while waiting for customers in the Park today. The first is from someone I saw quickly passing by and the second is outta me head. They're both done with a Col-Erase pencil which is very smooth. I saw Seo using it in Reno at the NCN, and then read about it in Alberto's blog. If you draw, you have to try it- it's like butter.


Here's a few more from the ole sketchbook; the first is made up and obviously a double page spread, the second and third pages are from people I see passing my stand in the Park, and who I usually have to draw from memory, and the last page is a fellow artist who usually doesn't say much to me due to our language barrier. I usually say "ni how" and "tsai chien" to him anyway.
