Sketchbook Musicians

Most of the stuff I've been posting lately has been finished illustrations, whether for clients or for fun.  So I thought I'd take a break here and post the kind of stuff I draw in my sketchbooks during my down time.   Lately, it's been portrait doodles of musicians, as you can see from these scans.

All of these were drawn in ink and marker on paper, usually at the end of the night while listening to some nice music. My goal was to practice drawing in ink, as opposed to inking finished pencil drawings. Nothing fancy there.

Sunday Style Spider-man

Here's a recent illustration I did for the Washington Post.  It's a cover image for their Sunday Style section, to go with an interview with Andrew Garfield, star of the new Spider-man movie.  

I had a lot of fun with this one, despite the tight deadlines.  The whole thing was drawn digitally, mostly in Sketchbook Pro.
