Daily Sketch Reprise: In My Face, 2013

Despite all the sweet things I said this morning, guess who was in my face when I wanted to sketch something else?

So he got sketched in all his distorted glory.

But I’m sure I needed that distraction. And really, sketching him distorted like that was harder than you could imagine! I had to turn off “what I know” and just go with “what I see”. It was very fun. Thanks, Giuseppe!

What other sketches have I shared around this date?

Mimi twists her slight, wiry frame into a confusing shape during her bath and I’m not sure I can puzzle it out. She is, however, properly installed on her pedestal. Any box will do.
