Philip

Recent illustrations.. I apologize for the poor quality of the photo. I took them on my iphone


here is a series of expression illustrations of our newly adopted cat(he adopted us actually..showed up on our doorstep months ago and is now our family member, although he doesnt like to step indoors because of the other four legged large beasts...)

these are done in ink pen,wash,colored pencil, pastel and some white out on 20x25 Canson paper







Another "Philip". Did this in about 4-5 hours on Sunday. Pen colored pencil and tiny bit of pastel 20x25 canson paper.

These are frighteningly good! Time to start studying my dog...and my daughter is getting a cat soon...you've set a high bar!

What I really appreciate is you've managed to retain the sense of line while still working in values by massing in the forms. And the drawings are quite fresh— not labored at all!
