Drawings and Sketches

These are some sketches and drawings that I dug out of my old notebooks. Some are recent and others are from when I was only 15 (in 2002.) These aren’t really commissioned portraits, just things I drew of friends and family, pictures out of magazines, Mom’s old book of actresses as well as some live poses from figure drawing or college classes. Enjoy!

“Two Faced”

This piece was created at college. I was feeling lonely, even thought I was surrounded by people. Everyone else seemed to have their own click and having fun, but I watched from a distance. I guess that’s how I felt when I painted these friends playing hackie sack in front of the cafeteria. They were having so much fun, but I had to leave the space in the foreground to represent the distance. The title refers to the general tendency of humanity to be able to be sad even while they are having fun on the outside. It is also an irony found in the clock tower which shows two different times on the two visible faces
