Imagine How Tough This Guy Would Look With a Complete Nose

I took another trip to the Seattle Art Museum today and ended up drawing this Roman sculpture from the 1st-2nd century (that's what it said on the wall text, sorry I can't be more specific) of a "barbarian." This particular barbarian has lost a few bits and pieces over the centuries, but he still looks tough enough to take my lunch money.

Oranges in Ink

Yep. Like the title says, this is a still life in ink with three oranges. I'd like to dedicate this drawing to anyone who thinks the NRA's proposal of armed guards in every school in America is the stupidest thing they've ever heard.

Car on 17th ave, Seattle

This is a car that is permanently parked down the street from my apartment, one of those neighborhood fixtures that I try to get into the sketchbook whenever I can. I've never been much of a car guy, a state of affairs that I think was alternately disappointing and puzzling to my father (a self-professed "gearhead"). That said, they can be fun to draw. There are a lot of interesting perspective challenges involved, several of which I failed to overcome in the present drawing.
