Celebrity Sighting and Drawings

This morning Mark (aka Daddy-to-be) and I went out for brunch at Mo's. It right around the corner. Usually I like to get buzzed off the free cheap champagne, but obviously not anymore. We are always on the lookout for a celebrity. Hadn't seen anyone in a while, but today we saw Paul Dooley with whom I assume was his wife. You might remember him as the Dad in Sixteen candles. He still looks great.


And here are some new drawings and sketches.

This is Nicole. I really liked her as a model. She had a strong personality and wore a lot of eye makeup.


I did another quick sketch at the end of the session to get the look of how a model really feels after posing for ungrateful artists for three hours.



And this is from a costumed session. I wish I had more time to have drawn more of the costume, which was complete with buckle shoes, hose, and puffy pants. He just needed a sword.

I'm so happy to see some of your recent drawings! I really love the quick sketch from the end of the session...you're right, you sure can tell a difference in her expression. Serene........and exhausted.

I love drawing with pencil. My favorite is towards the end when I get to bust out the white highlighting pencil. I don't know why...but I really enjoy when I get to that point.

You are super talented. Someday I'll own a Joy Covell. It'll hang in my breakfast nook. :-)

Thanks, Kristin! You are so sweet.
I know what you mean about the white. It doesn't take much to make everything come together like magic. So exciting!
