Here are a couple of sketches from a play reading that I recently attended…

I love going to play readings, because even if I don’t care for the play, it’s an excellent opportunity to do some sketching. Not only do the readers stay in generally the same position, but you don’t have to worry about them getting paranoid about the fact that you are staring at them.



Facial Accessories

March 2, 2014

Here’s a couple recent favorites. My Space 55 pals Dennis and BJ, from a play reading not too long ago. I love these guys, and their faces…

People with glasses, mustaches, scars, hats, tattoos, piercings, pockmarks, hairlips snagleteeth, and any other “facial accessories” always make fun and interesting subjects.

Especially mustaches and glasses.


The more stuff you have on your face, the more reference points I have to work with, which makes drawing a little easier. Plus all those extra details add character. I will sketch everyone else in the room before I bother with some boring PYT.
