The word of the day at dictionary.com was Pugnacious. I was just playing around with what pugnacious might look like. I didn't have an eraser handy, so I just left my search lines. I noticed that what I thought might indicate pugnacious didn't always work once I got it on paper. It occurred to me that part of the reason some of these seem more sad than argumentative is because when I think of pugnacious, I think of a grumpy old person that is all alone. I think its very interesting how both lonely/sad and angry showed up on the page.

Eternal Wait - I finally quit fidgeting with this one. It is #graphite on 8.5x11 smooth bristol board. It is nice to get something to a finish. No matter where I roam in media, graphite will always be my true love. I will be taking this to #Shakedown3 this weekend if you want to see it in person. #art #artist #drawingvia Instagram
A closer look at the same pose. I notice that #art is a lot like writing. The rough sketch is the idea. The second sketch is like the initial edit. The more I draw the same #sketch the more solid the ideas become. I bet the pros know this, but I am just discovering the power of a redraw. #art #artist #sketchbook #drawingvia Instagram
