American Legion Drawing #305Z
Post 867, Mundelein, Illinois
B. J. Voit
The pencil drawing here is of a great American and Veteran. B.J. Voit is an outstanding member of American Legion Post 867, here in Mundelein, Illinois. He serves on the Board of the post and has a great sense of humor. When he walked by me and looked at my drawing of him he said “That is an ugly drawing!” I responded back at him, “Yes! Because you are an ugly guy!” We both laughed.
Pencil Drawing For American Legion Drawing #305Z
- Clinker Stylus Sketch
My focus on this drawing is the contour of the entire image. I did not want this to be just a portrait, meaning that I did not just want to focus on his face, and then let the rest of the drawing fall away. In this case, sort of like a sitting Buddha, I wanted the entire form to be one unified image.
You will notice that the contour lines of the body are stronger and bolder than that of the head. Also, I have made a point to include the hat on the table as part of the image.
