Heres a photo of some work in progress portraits I've been working on. The plan is to now rework them as a whole image now that they are connected. These will probably be almost unrecognizable in the final piece.
In other news I will be drawing portraits and giving a demo tomorrow night (Saturday) at Ringling College at the Hammond Commons to benefit this year's Illest of Ill show. The portraits begin at 11pm and I'll begin the demo at midnight (that's early in college time to those wondering why so late).
I recently was informed that Bernie Fuchs passed away. By far and away one of the most influential illustrators to have held a brush. Artists made careers with styles he discarded. I am constantly looking at his work and in awe of his accomplishments. We lost a legend.
David Apatoff wrote a very sincere tribute to Bernie on his blog. Drawing 'till the last.
