Another one in my series of drawings which I am working on for an upcoming exhibit. These drawings will be transferred on leather with laser machine.
Storyboard character in all his glory.
I saw this homeless guy last winter on train. Because of his occupation no one wanted to sit next to him. I don't know why but the image struck me and I took a quick picture of him, thinking that hopefully one day I can use it for something.
This semester in one of my classes the professor gave us an assignment to do an oil painting featuring a figure in a state of deep emotion and immideatly thought of the guy on the C train. Looking closer at the photo I realized that he had a wedding band on his finger. I wondered what had happened to his wife., why he never pawned his ring, what is his story. The empty space next to him now was reminicent of a broken umbrella - a torn apart alone human being.
Sketch and idea approved, I am moving on the next round of a refined sketch and the painting.
I have to apologize for my two slip ups- missed two posts.
School and an internship have been very intense and I am still adjusting to the work load. I hope not to repeat my mistake- :)
And once again my favorite tree. No matter what angel you draw it from it looks mesmerizing.
