Graphite drawings

One of my art school professors once vehemently stated, "If you can't draw with your hands, you can't draw with a computer." Throughout my creative career, truer words haven't been spoken.

These drawings were created for a materials science text book. The author wanted original drawings for the book, so I was asked to create them. Each drawing is approximately 24"x30", hand-rendered in graphite, and required from 15 to 35 hours each.

Quick portraits

These sketches of prominent scientists were created for biographies for an interactive online course.

 

Pulling images from the internet to display in an original online project was not an option, so I used the images as reference to draw my own portraits. Over fifty of these sketches were created, so they had to be quick, taking from two minutes to five minutes each.
