Face

Faces From Time

This is a drawing idea I have been working on for a while.
The challenge is to draw each face in a different way.
Here a few close ups.

Leader

Artist

Office worker

Pop Star


Sportswoman

This type of working appeals to me sometimes.
Set a challenge, set some rules and let the artwork
develop over time without many prescribed meanings.

One of the eleven faces is me.

  2. Devil's son, hey looks like you have a fan david, don't worry I'm sure he wouldn't really be devil's son, but even if he is I don't agree with him about the drawings. I really think these drawing are not very good and the concept of of stereotypical types of people is rather suspect; pardon my bluntness but I've been doing my Tax today.

  3. These are the the real professions of people that I drew. They were picked from Time magazine based on the clarity and size of the photo.
    The posting is not meant to be a representation of the pinnacle of art. But a presentation of why and how I do things. I find this instructive and inspiring whenever I see this from other artists. Sometimes I don't fully like their work or I see mistakes, but it's the common experience and the humble presentation of their works, laid down on the altar of the gods, that I admire.

  4. I think this is a great exercise, but unfortunately some people mistake some art blogs as being a place to present finished works and masterpieces. A blog is like a sketchbook for me, a playground for the imagination, to explore, examine, and try out ideas. I agree about the challenge. Some art can get staid and comfortable unless the artist is willing to explore outside of their comfort zone. By the way I like the artist drawing :)

  7. Hey, David this reminds me strongly of teaching Year Nine art at XXXX secondary school. We did a exercise in tranferring a face photo to a gridded sheet of paper, the problem is, that here the results are not much different.

  8. Hey DAD
    I have always really loved these drawings. Ever since you created them I have enjoyed studying their faces and inventing my own version of their life stories.

    With much love
    Phoebe
