Mr and Ms Canada
I know these aren't finished drawings, but the beauty and freshness of their sometimes awkward, quickly executed lines drawn from observation set them as goals for how all my drawings and paintings should end up looking. Fresh and bursting with life. But I admit I like to explore darker themes too. These two people remind me of bodybuilders I photographed years ago in Saskatchewan. I think the guy was later kicked off the police force for an assault. By contrast, the guy in this drawing is a peace officer whose record shows absolutely no felony convictions.
