A gift for John Casey
I was going through some pics on my phone and realized I have tons of sketches of great faces. I sketch monsters and strange people with big noses all the time. Most of them are done in ink or graphite, never finished products. I found these four and thought they would be a great example of my style. I usually work in ink and watercolor when I do actually ink in a piece. Finished products are rare and most of them go into my portfolio. The photos above are not part of the final pieces but gifts for people.
Big noses, droopy eyes, teeth, and unusual color schemes are probably the best way I can describe them. Things always change but after looking over old sketchbooks and new pictures of current work, this is pretty standard for me. Most of these funny looking guys go on birthday, Mother’s day, or Get Well Soon cards. My mother, bless her heart, wants me to go into the greeting card business. She thinks I have the best birthday cards in the world. What she doesn’t know is that I do not want to really work for Hallmark. If the opportunity arose to build my own card business, I might consider it…
Which one is your favorite? Do you like them better than my graphite sketches? Are they Hallmark quality images? Would you buy one? Let me know…Hope you are having a great weekend.
