Tired. Sketching on NY Subway. Blackwing 602. The way his boots were turned inwards, his interlocked fingers, all his slouchy, a bit cartoony figure – all was the essence of tiredness and exhaustion. Brought to mind Van Gogh’s workers, I felt bad for him and wished him well and better life.
latest updates: Blackwing 602
This sketch I did on the train on the way to Frick museum. I was featured on http://pencils.com/blog/pencil-artist-of-the-week-nikira/ as an pencil artist of the week. Уррраа! (I am thankful to Bob, who introduced me to orange Palomino pencil, which led me to Palomino Blackwing 602.)
Today I was so lucky to see Federico Aubele live concert, amazing Argentinian singer, songwriter, musician. I fell in love with his music few years ago, I heard him somewhere online. I listen to him often while drawing or driving, I made Pandora radio station with his songs.
Today I sketched and listen and at the end asked him to sign my sketch, how cool is that! He liked my drawing. Wow! I am gonna do drawing in ink based on my sketches of him today. Here used Blackwing 602 (love this pencil) in Moleskine.
