It is not my usual practice to make my sketchbook drawings particularly realistic. I prefer to explore the fringes where the quotidian meets the whimsical meets the slightly fantastic, and most of these drawings are made with a fairly light touch.
This one is more truthful. Younger, more sensitive viewers may wish to look away. This is a brutally realistic depiction of the inside of my brain, and it is a very silly place.
I wasn’t kidding. This is a realistic drawing. I honestly want to work seriously, but this guy is always stealing my brush.
(I inked him with the little pen, and myself with a brush. Such a literalist!)
