pencil? or charcoal?

I am ashamed, because I have not been able to get my monkeys in line....

Also, I neglected to say:

nice.

I am a bad zombie.

Pencil. I don't like charcoal.

Yes, you are a bad zombie... all busy filling up fish's comment section with dreams of going to Spain.

I'm unleashing my spiders on you.

OK, just to be a jerk, I'm doing charcoal. Something Smudgey.

I still dream of trains. Or Spain.

I cannot imagine looking at myself for that long. Which is probably why I look like a bum of course, but um...what was the point again?

Oh yes: good work.

OK, just to be a jerk

Something new for you, ZRM??

SMcG- thanks. It was hard. What I perceived as being "honest" was really probably an obsession with aging tracts of land... seeing and exaggerating!!!

Don't draw when you're having a trying day. Maybe I should have drawn someone else. :)

When you crop it, it creates an interesting composition. More of a sense of concentrating, like you are being squeezed towards the computer screen. Kinda cool how that crop changes the feel quite a bit. I also like the space under the hand, the dance of dark and very light.

It does look more like concentrating. I like that one better. It's more accurate and the other one has a number of drawing issues.

What's sad is that I am not wearing reading glasses, but need reading glasses so the only way I could see that close was to pull the damn glasses down...

eek.

I just finished a non-monkey drawing WITH CHARCOAL AND OTHER SMUDGEY MEDIA
and realized I don't have spray fix at home.

A terrible reflection of how little I draw anymore. Abashed zombie is abashed.

Scans to follow tomorra.

and realized I don't have spray fix at home.

Geeze Louise, ZRM!!! I used a freakin' #2 pencil and emphasized sagging!! Strap some on!

However... having said that, I'm really looking forward to seeing what you've got.

You know ZRM... spray fix is basically a variation on an adhesive. You could have your license revoked.

Very cool, Jennifer. I have always admired people who can draw -- it's one of those things like singing in tune that I could never get right.

If I have to, I'll fall back on the old standby and steal some hairspray.

Also, I suspect I have just struck upon some birthday giftage....

I used a freakin' #2 pencil

Hardly smudgy AT ALL.

Cripes, I took the dog for a walk and STILL have black marks on my fingahs!!!

I HAVE SMUDGAHS ON MY FINGAHS!!!!

OK, that was funnay....

I am gonna scan and send to you unprotected....

I'm waiting...

Oh wait, you're still going to scan tomorrow???

No scannahs hooked up at home.

However, I forgot my work files, so I am gonna go do another, while I am inspired....


For what it's worth, you look exactly like you're absorbed in a computer screen. The first thing I thought was that I see this sort of face every time I walk through the city (we have a lot of coffee shops in Philly), and yet I don't think I've ever seen a drawing of someone doing what millions of people do every day.

Funny to think that 25 years ago no one was doing this. There used to be the sheet of paper in the typewriter, but that's pretty different, isn't it?

I love it, Jennifer. Absolutely love it. I loved it as soon as I clicked over and hadn't read the post yet. How big is the original?

I want ZRM to do a self portrait too!

Very different. And bizarre to think of people who know nothing else.

Thanks BG. It's around "regular paper size"... I wanted to keep it small enough so that it would fit on our scanner and so I wouldn't have to take a photo. Ok, I measured, it's 8.5 x 10. Not a standard size, but the size it ended up being.

I don't think ZRM is going to do a self portrait, but we can dream!

That's more like a nightmare.

I LIKE the big left eye - your left - my right - uh - unless because of the mirror it's your right AND my right. Both eyes face the computer but also oddly, face the viewer. And they have huge pupils. Hmmm..... I watch 'Lie to Me' so I know what that means!

But I do have large pupils and large irises relative to the rest of my eyes. You've seen them enough. Didn't you ever hear Min call me "Magnifeyes"?

As for what they mean... I'm remaining blissfully ignorant. :)

Wow!!! Now that's talent!!1
Hey, IDEA!!!
What if you and Zombie draw some of your fellow blogger friends? Not actual drawings, but what you THINK we look like?
That could get interesting!!!

That could get interesting!!!

...and maybe legally actionable.

People already know what I look like.

They've seen my sole.

But only a select few know what I look like.....and Thunda? I could guess...

Loved your drawing as well as ZRM's, you guys should square off like this more often. Hats off to such talented people!

Von- I've seen photos of you on FB so drawing you would be cheating. :)

scribbler- thank you. :) It was fun.

really great Jennifer.

and Kinda cool how that crop changes the feel quite a bit.

I agree! cool.
