Return to the Portrait Party

One of the best things ever on the internet is the Flickr group Julia Kay's Portrait Party. Yes, I know I've talked about this before, but it's been a while and it bears repeating. It's a fairly simple idea - people post pictures of themselves, other people draw them and post their drawings. It has turned into a very active group over the years with some really remarkable work. It's also one of those things that's always out there when I feel like I want to draw but can't seem to think of a subject. These are a few of my recent efforts, all of which were done pretty quickly. I tend to treat these as a way to mess around with materials or techniques that I normally wouldn't use - an ink drawing all in line? An excessive amount of white conte on top of a charcoal drawing? Sure, why not.
