This week's portrait subject is Frederick Douglass.
His life story seemed to defy the norm of the time. If ever there is a story worth telling this is it.
February being Black History month, I thought he'd make a great subject for my art.
I think I am about to enter a new phase with my art. I just purchased a bunch of large drawing paper.
Two weekends from now is the Long Beach Comic Expo, where I will once again host a costumed life drawing event! They've been going well and the convention owner is pleased and open to the idea of continuing them as part of the convention experience, which is great.
Since starting these weekly portraits a few people have requested drawings done of them. That could be fun but I want to know if anyone is actually reading this blog every week or am I just typing to my future self. So I have an idea, the first 3 people to comment here on this blog will be the subject of a future portrait installment. This offer is off the table in 7 days (February 17th, 2016).
I think I know who I am going to draw next...
