Bad Portraits

Why Bad Portraits? Drawing faces began as something for my hands to do during conversation, or sitting alone in a crowded room. The drawings weren’t good, but quickly they became a favorite practice, and one that offered something to subjects as well. A moment of presence and a playful artifact. Now for hire at events, I draw portraits at parties.

You have to imagine it. You’ll know if it’s right.
