Portrait – Illustration Friday
When I was younger, I always wanted to be a schoolteacher. Better yet, an elementary school art teacher. Well, I sort of followed my dream, and about four years ago I began teaching Graphic Communication at a local college. This ended up being my dream job! Who would think I would go from wanting to teach first graders to teaching college students. This initial dream was my inspiration for this week's Illustration Friday topic, "Portrait."
For our final project in my college Drawing I class, we had to create a series of artwork. Since I loved doing portraits, I chose to do classic film stars. This is just one of the portraits I created. Can you tell who it is (yes, the name of the file name WILL give it away)? It was drawn with charcoal on plain old 19" x 25" drawing paper. Gee...I really need to get my conventional art goodies out!
