Cups and Caps

July 2, 2012

This is a quick sketch that I did at a bar recently. To the naked eye this is pretty insignificant, but to me this represents a lifetime of sketching practice. Why? Two reasons:

1) One of the hardest things to draw is a person in a damn baseball cap. There is something about the bill of the hat, the way it covers part of the face and has that curve, it almost always comes out looking all distorted and weird.

2) Catching this guy mid-drink, figuring out how to show the nose and the mouth through the glass…well, it was harder than it looks.
