Sometimes it's fun to see the progression of a picture as it's being drawn. Here's my latest project. I find that the more of these pencil portraits that I do, the longer each one takes. As soon as it's completely finished, I'm going to switch back to 8 x 10 and do a painting before moving on with more pencil work.

Just draw it

I like the alien best so far.
When I was young, my dream was to be a cartoonist. I did not become a cartoonist, but I do like to play around with them every so often. Lately I've been experimenting with a strip that I'm creating to add to letters to my daughter while she's in basic training this fall.

I thought I'd share a few of the preliminary sketches. I love the alien, and the family members are okay, but I'm having real trouble coming up with a look for the main character that I actually like.
