Angelo in The VillagePosted: May 18, 2014
Rusty like my old wheelbarrow. That’s how I felt when I started to draw Angelo. It’s been so long since I’ve drawn on the street and how quickly one can lose that fluidity of line that you need for drawing people in motion, especially if you are sitting on the curb across the street and there’s a constant flow of traffic blocking your view. It took two warmup drawings to get Angelo’s intensity and pose right. But it also felt great to be drawing in the middle of a little bit of chaos. And Angelo can really play.
