Here are the last two of the sketches I did last week while traveling (BTW: am I the only one who feels like the word "traveling" should have two "l"s?). The first (pirate), was pretty much just drawn because I love pirates and have since I was little. I have seen relatively few fat pirates, though, and so I thought I would create one. I imagine there just weren't that many fat pirates, given the rigors of the job and all. Sailing. Stealing. Scurvy-having. You know. Rigors.
The second sketch is kind of an emotional self portrait. I often feel very uptight. Nervous and uncomfortable with myself. Not unlike the slightly overweight, "Star Trek" loving middle school kid I once was. So this drawing was a fun exercise in self-lampooning. Enjoy!
