There's a place for art


Milan Lucic

Milan Lucic

Marker on bristol board.

This is actually my second attempt at doing Milan Lucic–I had to scrap my first one, since the lettering on the back of the jersey was much harder than I anticipated, and one thing seemingly led to another, culminating in a wasted sheet of bristol board. At least this one going up without the Bruins in danger of being eliminated from the NHL playoffs.


Robert Plant

Robert Plant

Ballpoint pen on bristol board.

Done with ballpoint pen because I felt that would be the best way to depict his long blond hair (which is probably one of the first things anyone notices about him). I thought for sure it would take up the entire ink of at least one pen, and was surprised at how little ink it actually used.

Although I consider myself a classic rock fan, I have never been that big of a fan of Led Zeppelin. However, a few years ago I gained a new appreciation for them after encountering a book about them in the new arrivals section at the then-local library (if memory serves, they were performing very long songs at a time when the average length of a song played on the radio was about two minutes).


Ted Williams

Ted Williams

Pencil on standard sketchbook paper.

Inspired by a couple of caricaturists I found through Illustration Friday, a lot of my recent art has been famous faces, making quick sketches from the Internet or old magazines (this particular picture was based on a photo from an old Boston Red Sox magazine). Surprisingly, this only took thirty seconds, and it does look a bit like Ted.


Self Portrait

Self portrait. Pencil on bristol board.

I don’t like to post photos of myself online, so this is a good way of showing (roughly) what I look like.
