Some Draw- ings
I had a poor view of the model for this twenty minute drawing, so I drew Dan, the host of "Go Figure". The natural composition with the angle of the wall divide behind Dan (white wall on top, dark wood on bottom) and Dan's black bandanna on his head were too hard to pass up. This was done with a fresh disposable synthetic brush pen.
The reason I couldn't see was my girl, the now author Molly Crabapple, was sitting in front of me eating the slice of pizza (my supper) and drawing Lady J who had struck a pose on the floor. It was crowded so I couldn't move anywhere else. Dan didn't move much and I liked seeing how he held his pencil and drew.
The other drawings are people on the subway.
This was a message.
