Sketchbook Drawings

Patti Smith portrait illustration

So, some more sketchbook drawings this week. Here's Bob Dylan, Nick Cave and Patti Smith.

And it looks like after three and a half years I'm circling back round to the start when it comes to portraits of people I like. And the cycle is only gonna get smaller at the rate people I like are dying these days. 

Here's my previous Patti Smith drawing: and here's Nick Cave: from way back in June and July 2013. Things have changed quite a lot since then - back when I drew the old Patti Smith pic I was excitedly experimenting with a new technique where I got blind drunk and drew portraits of people I liked. Now that's just a standard weekday evening.

And that old Nick Cave painting is a particularly weird one to look back on. I painted it in a couple of hours one night about a year before the post, and I've never been able to recapture the technique. Plus, reading the accompanying entry, I used to try a lot harder in these writing bits beneath the drawings.
