Pipe Guy

I most definitely don't have the patience for this. I spent a good portion of the day cleaning the house (and only part of the house), with occasional forays out into the garden where I pulled up ash tree seedlings and saplings, and down into the basement to put laundry in the washer or dryer, and I NEEDED to do something else.

I'm fascinated by this guy's face, which almost looks okay from a distance (but not up close at all), but this drawing does NOT capture it at ALL, and now I'm cranky because it did not at all turn out the way I wanted it to.


  1. i love pipe guy! the ink work is great! id like to have a drink with him and hear all his old tales...

    thanks for your lovely comment by the way :)

  2. Beautiful!! And the one before-- I think we were on very similar wavelengths this week!

  3. amazing work as usual! and thank you for the comments on my post. i think i remember which drawing...is it the "IF - parade" post..? i remember there's a girl on the back with red umbrella. i dont know if that's the one, though. but, thanks for your attention on my blog, i'm very flattered! ^_^

  4. you might feel cranky, but if you look at it in a month, year or something you may feel amazed at the fantastic quality this has, as I am!

  5. Excellent! Love the light from behind!

  6. i like it.
    sometimes i find it satisfying to draw a really CRANKY person ;)

  7. hi,

    your work is full of lines....how big are your drawings?

  8. Thank you for your comments on my blog :)
    If you need a big business card, just give me a shout!

    I really dig your portraits and the intense expressions these people have.
    There's a whole story behind them, which makes you wonder
