this one's cool too.

he has a bit of an oscar wilde quality about him. i'm currently reading dorain gray and the portrait of wilde on the cover looks similar to this guy.

Thanks, Jason. Yeah, Oscar has a large chin as well, but not so square- more of a "Jay Leno" type of chin. I did one of him years ago.

Great drawings all...and like a familiar refrain about a lot of original art when viewed on the computer, 'this scan doesn't do justice to the original.' At least as my viewing of the Stanescu piece in your sketchbook would confirm.

Thank you, keeper. Yes, you speak the truth as we all know about scanned or photographed work compared to the original.
Some people have been giving you a run for your money for the most comments on the blog for 2008... it could be close...

And...WOW! I stumble on your link and your site and your blog and your work.

GREAT stuff! Very exciting and inspiring.
