Keeping stuff is good #13 Another Male Model

From 2007 #13

Again, from that sketchbook I recently unearthed and opened. This one is in litho crayon. I don’t recall this guy except that he was fairly well-built and looked like he had a rough time in his life. His face was weathered and he seemed a bit ascetic. But who knows? People are not always what they appear. That’s the fun of drawing them and imbuing them with qualities that they may or may not have. Like all the other drawings in this series it is drawn on 11 x 14 archival, Aquabee paper.


About mmgilbert

I have been drawing and painting all my life. Now part of the “New Symbolist” movement which encompasses both Goth, fantasy and tattoo art as well as the century-old work of Odilon Redon, I focus on archetypal and mythic imagery to evoke emotional themes and to reference darker fantasies. I have an abiding interest in figurative drawing, working on paper and exploring new ways to handle traditional materials. I studied with Edward Millman, a WPA muralist; at Purchase College; and at the Art Students League in New York.
