Old Man with Beard

Editorial Illustration, Pen & Ink Line Drawing

Randal was looking through some “pen and ink” art books and decided to try his hand sketching a man in one of the books. This sketch was done 20 to 25 years ago and probably took about 2-3 minutes to complete. That’s really the whole idea. Just do it – quick, sketchy, loose, free… and know when to stop! The original was done with a fountain type pen with sepia ink on white “trash” paper. For some reason this guy looks like G.K. Chesterton.
