“The Path Home”

8″x10.25″  – graphite on paper

A few years ago I took a bunch of candid shots with my iPhone while riding the PATH train and the New York subway. Last week I finally emptied out the images on my phone and found this among other shots that I took. I’ve always wanted to work with the original image and I finally did! Maybe I’ll do the full body drawing also, as well as a painted version… we’ll see.

This is the first finished drawing that I’ve done in years! The reference I used was the photo from Day 43, and I made a few minor translation adjustments along the way. This piece is 5×7, graphite on paper. This was definitely a lot of fun to make.
