Real life people get logged away & giveaway four

Artists get ideas from people in the real world. They do it all the time.

The other day I was sitting my car at a stop light and a man walked across the street in front of me. He had no chin, a giant nose, a skinny neck, and a comb over. He was drowning in his sweat shirt and had this way of walking that reminded me of a pigeon.

It was awesome. 

Since I was driving I couldn't pull out my sketchbook right then, but I logged him away in my brain for ... something later on.

Yesterday I drew him at the movies.
Observation is a great way to get ideas.


The winner of last week's giveaway is...
... J-Dawg!

  3. Hmm, people watching....I remember years ago, as I was eating lunch outside the toy shop in which I worked, an elderly couple came out of the shop. They both looked very handsome together. The lady wore a dress or skirt (I can't remember what color) and the man wore tan slacks, a dark blue suit jacket, and a caper straw hat. As they walked away their backs were toward me and I just sat and watched and smiled. They held hands like a newly in love couple. I decided that I wanted to be just like them.
