Jody, Pencil on Paper

I’ve enjoyed drawing a couple of the guys at work so much that I’ve decided to go ahead and sketch all of them.  My two bosses, Pat and Dennis, approached me and wanted to know if I’d be up for having them on the company’s website.   I think the idea is to have them accompany each guy’s bio.

Here is a drawing of my friend Jody.  He presented a bit of a challenge because of some very subtle curves and characteristics in his face.  He was definitely a struggle to get but once I zeroed in on what truly makes up the unique qualities of his face, I felt I captured his likeness quite well.
