THE MAN WHO GREW HIS BEARD. 
Gallery Twenty-Two, the local Charlotte bar/gallery where I go to figure drawing sessions every Monday—often the only time I spend away from my drawing table all week—is having a group show based around the figure drawing sessions next month. I’ve been working on a big involved dinosaur thing for the last several months, some hints of which you can see on my Instagram where I’ve been posting progress pictures, and so I don’t have much time to develop finished works for the gallery show. Instead I’ve been doing rough drawings in the gallery, then bringing them home and inking them as warmups before my regular work. 
It’s been one of my favorite drawing experiences of the last year or so. While life drawing can often be about catching nuances of light and tone and dimension, cartooning is often about removing details. Combining those two has been really instructive, not to mention pleasant.
