Drawing is something that I have been doing for almost as long as I can remember. At a very early age I found fascination with the pencil and all the many things that could be done with it when used on paper. I remember having access to a set of Walt Disney brand encyclopedias and spending most of my time copying the characters parading throughout those books. From there, my interest progressed into things like architectural drawing (I thought the tools associated with that discipline were just fascinating and fun), comic book art, and editorial illustration. Throughout my development in elementary school, junior high school, and high school, I was known for doodling and drawing on the margins of my test papers, homework, written assignments, etc. It seemed that I was always with a pencil in my hand. As an adult I discovered the mysteries of charcoal and graphite and paper stomps. As I continue my practice of drawing I am continually attracted to the human face and portraits. Here are some examples:
