I Go Ron Artest...

Sorry for the long delay between posts, folks. Fall is usually a busy season for me, so I haven't had as much time to update this blog. I've got a some new illustrations that I'll be posting in the next few weeks, but in the meantime here's something hot off my drawing table -- a portrait sketch of NBA basketball player Ron Artest.

Now don't get me mistaken, I actually hate the Los Angeles Lakers (Ron's team), but I'm working on some new paintings for a Ron Artest themed art show here in Toronto later this month. I thought it'd be fun to do a loose and drybrush ink sketch, so I drew this with a nice fat #10 brush. And, like the Ray Allen piece below, the image was referenced from an old photo.
