Gush – Willow Charcoal on Canvas Paper 12″x9″
New music, new artwork. Here are a couple of willow charcoal drawings inspired by the G I R L album (by Pharrell if you are under a rock). No promises but I may draw the rest of the album – minus one track ($2 for whoever can guess the omission).

Halloween in January! I got new charcoal sticks FINALLY; thank you Dick Blick. This is the first time I used their brand of charcoal sticks – success. What I usually get stays out of stock and is more expensive. They blend well and aren’t too hard/soft and you can’t beat the price.
