9 x 12
Pencil on Paper
This is Mike, brother of Ian, my better half. The brothers do look alike. I strove to achieve a likeness of Mike without overworking the drawing.

I'm working with harder pencils. For non-drawers, harder pencils make lighter marks and can be erased more easily. Solves the problem of wearing through my paper with too much erasing.

(Some problems getting a good photo of this one. The paper is actually true white, not sepia toned.)
