Kurt Vonnegut

I’ve alway liked the writing of Kurt Vonnegut, so he was a natural choice for my first attempt to draw a likeness of a famous writer. I think I captured a pretty good Kurt.

Hector Berlioz – the Sketchpad

Another sketch of a famous composer, this time Hector Berlioz. My process is simple: I print out a picture of the composer and then pick up a No. 2 pencil and sketch the likeness on a small sketchpad. That’s all there is to it. I plan on working my way through the visages of several hundred composers.

Recent Portraits

I’ve been honing my pencil skills by drawing portraits. Here’re a few recent examples: Leonardo Da Vinci (darkened in Photoshop to look more like charcoal) and the composer Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach.
