Over the last few months I've been doing some digital doodling with line art and faces. As a graphic designer I am (thankfully) infrequently asked to draw faces. However, I am constantly working on line art. In my free time I married the two together and the above has resulted.
The piece on the left is my tribute to the late, great David Bowie, one of my favorite recording artists. I wanted to share it here on my blog, and I saw an opportunity to show off a few of the other line drawing portraits I've been scribbling with my mouse. For the works on the right, I was hoping to illustrate who the subject was with as little detail as possible – I chose not to include eyes for that reason – but with Bowie, I couldn't omit what his arguably his defining feature.
Housekeeping tidbit: For organizational purposes on this site, I've included these images under the Design > Doodles tab, where I've moved my Marginalia series too.
