sketchbook drawings from this week

Here's a drawing I did when I was watching Beautiful Losers the other night, I guess it was last week.

Thought-provoking photographer Tim Hetherington was killed in Misrata this past week. I had just finished reading "WAR" by Sebastian Junger (whom with he traveled to the Korengal Valley in Afghanistan in 2007 to document U.S. soldier's experience there, culminating in some amazing photos and the Oscar-nominated documentary "Restrepo"), and just the other day found myself admiring Tim's Sleeping Soldiers , to the point of wanting to copy them as paintings (Google them or check his site, they are beautiful). The world is so big and so small.

Here are some drawings of my really awesome coworkers. Kip and Richard don't have many photos on their Facebook pages so I will have to try again, but I kinda like the larger one of Kelly (left) and Patricia. It really helps to have a good photo. Without photographers I wouldn't be able to draw a lot of fun stuff, so if you're reading this and take pictures, keep doing your thing, you're awesome.
