It had been a while since my last figure drawing session and thus it was invigorating to draw and paint these images at the Society of Illustrator’s Jazz & Sketch this past tuesday. One fellow in front of me was drawing on butcher paper with charcoal and white pencil and I couldn’t believe how good he was… humbling.
The fellow on the right is an 89 year old illustrator who was also making some great sketches. I chatted with him briefly as we walked out and he told me how last winter he got a pair of the new fat ski’s and how they were really fast. He also lamented that he was just a bit too old to start snowboarding.
