Big Head Richard

January 26, 2014

So here is the first drawing I did in the Big Head Richard series. It’s always convenient to draw someone when they are meditating. And if they are wearing a funky robe thing, that’s an added bonus.


Here is the second. Same robe, and now he’s added a funny head sock thing to the ensemble. I have added more detail to the background here. And by more detail I mean, 4 orange lines.


Here is the one from last week, which is my favorite so far, for reasons mentioned in the last blog post. Also, there were like three more baskets of dirty laundry in the background. I only drew one of them because I am lazy, which is why we had so much dirty laundry in the first place. Richard ipad

This one is from today. Not so crazy about it. Once again I should clarify that our door is not actually pink. Initially I had left it white, with a few grey marks, but there was so much weight at the bottom with the dark blacks and thick lines, that I felt like maybe some warm color on the top would help balance it out, which maybe  helped a little, but it’s still not working for me.

Afterward I asked Richard if he was in a darker mood here than when I did the previous drawings, and he said yes. I think it definitely shows.


This is the first in this series where I’ve gone for the front instead of profile. I’m not as good at this angle, so I will need to keep at it. At some point I accidentally grabbed the “2” instead of the “1” pen, which the reason for the thick black outline. I kind of like it, kind of don’t. I think the thing that is bothering me the most here is the back couch and the colors in the background.

All of these were done with Tombow markers and various pens.
