Gangster's moll. Long Pose.



In the morning, I was at Echo Park to join in with LA Sketch Crawl crew.  I got there a bit late and missed them, so I went to the Costumed Long Pose Meetup soon after.   I did an ink sketch of the pose, then did a watercolor version on my sketchbook for the remaining time.

Happy Fourth of July!



 Love the idea of relaxing. Relaxing with beer. "You can't be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline. It helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer." -- Frank Zappa

Mads, I tell you!

This is for a caricature challenge with Mads Mikkelson as the subject. Caricaturama Showdown 3000. I was watching the TV show Hannibal the other day, the season finale. Gonna miss this show until they start up again. The show's a bit outlandish with all the use of human body parts and such... but the characters are fairly close to the book Red Dragon. It's a good portrayal of agent Will Graham from the novels...better than the films. Mads Mikkelson as Hannibal is an odd choice, but he's growing on me. I liked the book because it was so technical about how FBI uses DNA evidence to find the killer... the show feels like it focuses a bit too much on the grotesque. Oh well.
