Road Trip Sketches #8

The last road trip drawing!  My self-imposed rule was that all the faces had to be ones that I saw in the rocks around the black hills near Rushmore.  Also, it doesn't follow any lighting logic...  How many faces can you find?

I'm posting the rest a little faster because I'm moving into an apartment in the next couple of days and I don't know how much internet access I will have...


Here are a couple more for the "seeing things in abstract shapes" theme:

Road Trip Sketches #3


































It seems like another "theme" in these road trip drawings, besides faces, is seeing things in abstract shapes.  This of course is the classic "what do you see in the clouds?" idea!

Road Trip Sketches #2


































So I noticed that I drew a lot of faces on this trip.  I like drawing portraits!  Even if they're not totally accurate...  By the way, you can check out Ellen's lovely musical frog illustrations and other work here:  http://www.ellenmurray.net/  Sorry, I have no links for Diane or Glenn... Unless they have ones to give me...

Road Trip Sketches #1

To start things off, here is some cool weather we saw from the car:
