As seen on TV

Paul Manafort wears navy blue for his mugshot in June, 2018. Pencil, watercolors,
Derwent Inktense and a dash of Micron pen here and there, in a 9×12″ Canson Mix Media spiral notebook. Reference pic was a screen shot snagged while I watched tv last month.

In anticipation of the upcoming trial this week, I wanted to brush up on Paul Manafort’s features. He has an interesting face and aura about him. Nearly always, I gain pathos for my subjects; like I’ve had a sit-down with the real person after time spent scrutinizing their nostrils and whatnot. I try to use great care which faces I scrutinize.

Feelings

Oh, Jared.

Jared, as seen on tv in 2017. 7.5 x 10.75ish” Watercolors, Inktense pencils and ugly-crying bitter tears on Canson Mix Media spiral notebook.

The first sketch of Jared I attempted to do resembled Rose McGowan. It was on a sticky note and it makes me smirk a little when I see it even now, and then I start to feel horrible about myself for smirking. I don’t know if it might affect anybody else this way, so I present that sticky note here for my own (I won’t say, benefit…) purposes:

Jared or Rose

Sticky note pencil and Signo Uniball white ink sketch of Jared, as seen in the news in 2017, and which makes me smirk and also looks a tad like Rose McGowan?
