My journey of re-creating myself

Many Thanks to Jack Hamm

Well, I have a new friend…Jack Hamm.  I’ve picked up a copy of his book Drawing the Head & Figure, and after just sitting down for a little while with him…I am actually drawing!

I have never really drawn anything in my life, other than some doodles and cartoon like creatures.  But I’m actually quite inspired by my little friend.  Below are some pics of some quick sketches that I have done.

So, thank you, my little friend, Jack!


I’ve always been fascinated with the fact that a person could scribble some simple lines and create recognizable images. (I apologize for some of the darker images, could quite get the lighting right on the photos.)
