Two pages of sketches.."male" figure studies.
First one approximately 7"X5"-red, blue, and graphite pencil.
Second one approximately 6"X5"-red,blue, and graphite pencil. (Image was cropped).
Both are expressive..interpretive studies. First stage drawings for possible expressive-male figure paintings.

Now, I know the real meaning of the word 'gorilla'.

On the second two, he has rather large breasts don't you think?
(Hummmm, must be a weight lifter in the jungle).
As usual, great drawing skill, Mike

I like the top sketch's distortion of the upper body, I would like to see a follow through on the lower half, perhaps making one of the thighs even bigger ...? Looks like superman to me right now ...
The bottom 2 sketches look really good positioned together like they are- would make an interesting painting as is.

Wow! This guy is really scary! Nice pencil work, I like the 'hair-do' in the first one.

Anyone recall the work of Charles Bragg?
I think there was more going on (a LOT more!!!) in his work than the obvious humor.
I think he was making some very important statements about the seriousness of our lives and the human condition. Just have to laugh sometimes.
I've got a wonderful book of the work of Charles Bragg ("The Absurd World of Charles Bragg"-published 1980). Great stuff..he covers a lot.
I'll just have to quote Bragg here:
"I like people because they're so flawed and varied". "They're always center stage". "And, on top of everything else, they're also clever and brave and courageous". "They're just beautifully human".

i was suprised to see that these drawings were as small as they are! Your drawing style has so much energy that it creates the feeling of being so much bigger. I could look at the lines in your drawings all day!
oh one more thing..i think i dated that guy! http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/biggrin.gif
