i've enjoyed seeing and reading about your work in American Artist recently. you might like henry yan and casey baugh's drawings.
thanks! and yes I do actually - very familiar with their work.

these are ALL amazing! Upon closer inspection they have a surprising looseness to them. The contrast between the loose and the meticulous makes them stunning. I would welcome any criticism of m work that you could offer!!!

beautiful use of contrast for the hair? do you use charcoal pencils or charcoal squares?
Posted by williamrose on August 24, 2010
thanks - used a fat chunk of soft vine charcoal.
Posted by bradniemeyer on August 17, 2010
Are these from life or from photos? just curious...
Posted by williamrose on August 23, 2010
both - some from life and some from photos, and some are a combination (like this one)
