I've been inspired by the amazing Anthony Holden this week to try and keep a better sketchbook. Anthony has some of the funnest "doodles" I've seen in a long time. These are nothing like those. But, my goal is to have more fun when I draw. I've decided to start small and do a memory sketch of someone I see every day.
You might notice that the key criteria of who I choose is largely based on: hair, patterns, and color. All things I enjoy sketch-painting.
The above guy was on my bus this afternoon and had the most spectacular hair I couldn't even do it justice.
For some reason I don't get around to doing these sketches until like 11 at night, which is unfortunate because I then do not want to go to sleep.
(Confession: One of these is not a memory sketch. It's from a book. Yes, I cheated.)
