ETCH ABOUT A SKETCH: my sketches 4


Hi, all! Every now and again, I will post sketches I’ve done. Since they are my sketches and not my fine art pieces, they do not see a whole lot of light of day as they are holed up in a notebook, computer/laptop or flash drive. These are some examples of the bare bones of my art. Some are quick sketches, others look more complete. Please enjoy! Thanks!

Really, this is not a sketch (since it is a finished piece), but it has a sketchy look. I like the hurried, frantic look of it. 

Remember The Beatnuts? Oldheads (like me…I am in my 30s) will remember. If you are a youngster who only listens to Bieber, Selena Gomez, Drake & so on, might not know The Beatnuts unless you appreciate any music done before 2005 or if you Google. The Beatnuts are a rap/hip hop duo from New York. They were quite big back in the day (1990s-2000s).

The two guys went by the names Psycho Les (Lester Fernandez) and JuJu (Jerry Tineo. Here is a quick drawing I did of Psycho Les. I was visiting family near Atlanta, during the Summer, when I did this. I was trying a new style technique that communicates nearly every detail into exaggerated line-work. Depending on how it is used, line can be very expressive and can communicate a lot of feeling.  

By the way, this post marks my 100th POST on WordPress (and that’s not counting my 16 published pages-pages are my minor publishings, here, while my posts are the main)! Cartwheels are in order!! But I will not attempt to really do cartwheels at home because I might break stuff. So, I will do cartwheels in my mind…  : )
