Old man sketches Talking Heads (not the band)

March 24, 2013

Here is a link to a short article  from the NPR website about an old man that watches C-SPAN and sketches the talking heads. I think the drawings are great. I often (attempt to) sketch faces while I watch TV as well, but they usually turn out pretty lousy because it’s so rare that the camera is on the same shot for more than a couple seconds at a time. That’s why this guy watches C-SPAN, not because he’s into politics, but because it’s the only place where you can see a talking head long enough to sketch it out. Now that’s one smart old man!


You can see more drawings on the man’s website. According to the article, he’s had no formal art training. Pretty dang impressive.

There is a more extensive article about him here.

  1. That’s amazing for a guy without formal training. What a creative way to grow a skill. Though HIllary Clinton’s was not as recognizable as the others, it was very good for an amateur.
