Me and John

I played around with this unfinished sketch Mike did in my sketchbook while we were waiting for our pizza. I'd done one of him, and a few minutes into his turn our food came. I looked at the sketch later, and I just loved it!

It reminded me of the doodle of John Lennon with the glasses and the suggested shape of the head and nose. Mike's a little rusty, but he's had life drawing and given adequate time and enforced seriousness, he can do realistic art, but I've always liked his cartoony look. It shows his Simpson's influence.

I darkened the lines some to make it more graphic looking. The circles aren't as dark in the original because they were done to block in the shape of my head.

I just thought it was worth remembering here...
