More figure studies

My final night at Hopper House during summer break, and the model cancelled last minute. Thankfully my co-faciliator
Ashley called Angel Paperell- very good figure model- and he showed up on a dime and saved the session.

Latest Hopper House figure drawing session

Here, I'm focusing a lot on features due to courtroom art training. Best way to keep on it is to draw as often
as possible from life. We had a great turnout, and next week promises to be a good one too. Then we'll break and
return anew in August!

I'm working on a project with the NY Knicks- they sponsor a Poetry Slam Contest, which awards finalists with college
scholarships, grants and laptops. My project is a mini-comic, poster and t-shirt design and illustration. Total fun!
Here is one rough. I'll show the finals as they evolve.

PRINT feature on 'the proboscis'

Well, much ado has been made about the 'nose' fix, and while it is somewhat embarrassing to be the artist that
did a 'questionable likeness' it has had surprising repercussions, from a comment blog on WSJ's site, a limerick on
NPR and a humorous take by Jon Stewart. And now, an in-depth write up on PRINT's home page

A particular proboscis

I'm still here in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba with media to cover the 9/11 commissions. All the artwork produced here must be approved by military before being released; so it was shown to Khalid Sheik Mohammad and his legal team- and was brought back with a comment by KSM to 'look at my FBI photo and change the nose, then I will allow it'. It made a story at any rate- and a better drawing in the end. All that aside, as someone who experienced 9/11 directly, this is personal.
