This is a pen drawing of an Old Man that was sketched in 1999. It is somewhat of a portrait, but it doesn’t focus on the face, rather the whole body and posture of the man. Light squiggly lines where used to quickly sketch in the body, with heavy crosshatching used to depict shadows and shapes. His hunched back and downward gaze help to reinforce the contemplative nature of the old man, as he slowly walks away from the viewer. Also, the drawing is approximately 9″ x 18″, and utilizes a slight wash of water to soften some of the crisp pen lines.
