Beard Sketch

Jodie and I saw this guy walking down John Young yesterday, and I kid you not ... this is exactly what his beard and mustache combo looked like. It was big, fluffy, and so crazy long. It was also a misty white, with yellow/creme brown colored ends, but that is besides the point.

I'm not at all sure where he was headed or what was in his plastic bag, but he looks like a special breed of man, who probably spends long nights alone combing crumbs out of his Rip Van Winkle-esque facial hair.

This 8 × 10" piece is on a heavy white paper, started with 6B pencil and Sharpie/felt pen inking. I'm really liking drawing so big and on such nice paper that I'll probably keep at it for a while ... though my lil' Canon scanner doesn't really fit these pages and I have to piece-meal it in Photoshop. No biggie though. I still like its general portability, so I don't plan on updating it any time soon.
