faces

This was an exercise to see how many different faces I could come up with, it turned out to be really difficult. Most of them are either way too happy or horribly miserable, at least I covered the emotional spectrum. See if anyone can spot the Basil Wolverton lookin' dude.

Great stuff as alway. I'm working on a website-- a sort of webzine type thing with an emphasis on cartoons, illustration and design and I was wondering if you'd mind me doing a little feature on you. It's sort of an attempt on my part to make connections with other artists, don't know how successful it'll be. Anyway, here's the link: www.fovealreader.tk

This is beautiful, David. You should frame this one and hang it somewhere where people are "caught" for a few moments, like next to the toilet where they can look over and count all the expressions you've drawn and get a good laugh at all the hyper-emotions you captured.

Thanks guys! Hey Justin, I really like your idea, I should make prints of this thing and sell them to restaraunts for their bathrooms. Hopefully it's more fun to stare at than the newspaper!

I've been soooooo bad, David. I am a neglectful blog parent, and my little blog almost died. But I'm back...I promise. :D

And yes, I can stare at your drawings for hours, so make other people too! Do you draw on bathroom stalls? You should! ...but make sure you take pictures.

I think it'd be great as wallpaper or PJs!

Hi David! I think I'd already seen this post...it might have even inspired my own exercise in some way. I think your objective here was to come up with as many faces (expressions) as possible. Which is outstanding, by the way. I'm trying to wrap my head around drawing the entire head (and body). Which you already achieve in all the other fantastic sketchbook pages you've posted. I don't draw enough people, period.

Again, well done!
