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).


  1. Fantastic! I love the preacherman. And the coffee drinking ladies. Look at those specs!

  2. Let me know next time you're coming to our Intelligensia!

  3. We definitely need to do an Intelligentsia drawing session soon. Dave, fly to CA and join in!
