New Drawing

(Sunflower Man), Graphite 10.5" x 7"


  1. I'm late leaving my thoughts--maybe as usual. ;) I saw this drawing and immediately named him "sunflower man" in my head, because he looks like he'll always face the light. Love the perspective across the hands and arms. It's enough to make a viewer notice the slightly top-heavy quality of the figure and know that his outsize head is intentional, rather than accidental.

    What is he so focused on? His posture shows awe and a sense of offering... the obvious answer would be a God just off the page. He is, of course, very different from most supplicants because he is unashamedly naked and also very clean-cut, not with a look of physical suffering or abasement. Still, there's definitely an appeal to a higher power.
