Gestural Joys

Before May slips away, I thought I'd post some gesture drawings that I did recently. The model was pretty cray cray, and I wasn't really sure if he was portraying a preacher, or a hobo, or the Penguin playing golf. So in other words, he was the best gesture drawing model ever, and I decided to draw him as all three.

First was the persuasive Preacher...who I imagine has some fairly shady business up his sleeves. That Bible looked like it was from a motel drawer, just saying.

Then there was the sad hobo. He just can't seem to catch a break, can he?

And then the Penguin played some golf.

I also went to the Intelligentsia in Pasadena to doodle with some friends. That's right, we voluntarily pay $5 for coffee sometimes. I sketched some unsuspecting people sipping on their organic/fair-trade/over-priced cups of joe (except for the Geisha...she wasn't there, but I really wish that she had been).
