Immense Character

15 Feb

I’ve come to the last of my Baby Boomer drawings for a little while as The SPace, where I have been doing these drawings since November, has now closed at the end of its temporary lease. I need to find a new place to continue the drawings over the next few months. This Baby Boomer has a face of immense character. One of the things I really appreciate about doing these drawings of my generation is seeing a lifetime reflected in these faces, so many stories, so much experience leaving their mark.

I have done 42 drawings so far into my sketchbooks and I have 58 to go to reach my target of 100. Several of my models have suggested that number 100 should be a self portrait, so I guess that’s a good idea. I hate drawing myself though because I frown so much when I’m concentrating, I look really cross.

    He looks similar to Hellmuth Karasek. That was a famous German literary critic, author and journalist who died last September. Great sketch.

    This is such a great series Rosie – I would love to see them all together.

      At some point, that will happen. I’m getting ideas for this as I’m progressing
