I’ve gotten some commissions over the years to do people. At first it always seemed strange to me, because I’ve never thought of myself as a people-drawer…even though I do enjoy drawing people. My cartoon-like, simple style was attractive to some, for some reason. Ok, I’ll take it!
The chain reaction from these has been interesting. It started with a group…which lead to some personal drawings for people within that group. Then to other people outside of that group that saw other drawings. That’s how things work, I guess! Which just emphasizes to me how important word of mouth is, and sharing what you do so people see it and think, “hey, I’d like something like that.”
Here are some of the drawings. I kind of want to go through my elementary school year book and draw my class from a good year. It’d be good practice!
I’m hoping to really get things under control and carve out time for drawing more soon. It’s not going to happen unless I make a big change with work, but I think it’s what I want to do.
