The Man At Table Two

Illustration from "You Are A Miserable Excuse For A Hero" by Bob Powers.

I like the depth in this one. Bob's a lucky guy to have your illustrations in his book, that's for sure.

(Hmm, if I ever get around to writing one, I know who I want!)

It would be a pleasure.

These are wonderful illustrations-
I can see how much you enjoyed them- and
the freshness that you've brought to them.

Looking forward to the rest!

Thanks Memi, They're sure to make it out at some point. 27th here we come.

Your artwork continues to dazzle me. You are posting some great stuff. You may have told us already in cyberspace, but how do you get your textures in your washes--, crayon, wax, glue, masking fluid????

Hey Terry, with the sketch that you commented on the resist was achieved by dragging a candle lengthwise across the paper, it give an unpredictable texture that is fun to work against. Give it a go, you can be selective about where you apply it. When I work in a Moleskine sketchbook the paper often has the resist built in but I find the paper quality of Moleskines to be inconsistent. Good luck Terry, I think you might enjoy experimenting.
