Friday Face Off 8/2/2022

This week was unusually busy due to circumstances beyond my control.  So, the quilted face did not get finished this week. I did make a bit of progress, but it still has a couple of days work to be done. 

Thus, I dug into the archives (aka my sketch books from years past) and found a face that I don't remember drawing.  Clearly, I did draw it, because I signed it. 
I can certainly image transforming this face into fabric at some point in the future. 
I love the way I rendered her hairstyle. It seems quilt classic and perfect for her face. 
I have no idea if I can render it as well in fabric. 

While I was browsing in the sketchbooks, I also found this drawing
of something that is now pretty much a relic.

Several years ago (after these drawings) I was in Mexico for vacation. 
I was taking "artsy" photos just for fun with my digital camera.  One thing
that kept cropping up was discarded shoes. I took photos of all of them 
although I have no idea if I kept any of those files. 
When I saw the next drawings, I remembered the 
"Lost Shoes of Mexico."

Sometimes, I was sketching in a waiting room - for example the socked foot in a slipper, above.

I think this one was drawn after looking at an ad in a women's magazine. 
But, I confess that the memory is quite vague. 

I am linking up with  DVArtist for the Friday FaceOff.

 to see how various people interpret the challenge.

Until Next Time,  
Stay Creative

Drawing skills developing! We knew you have them but seeing them in progress is fun. I can also see the first one in a quilted piece. Her hairstyle and face shape lend themselves perfectly.

I would love to see the stylish lady on fabric.
And - ha! A phone in orange from my family is right here, from the 70s, though.

Isn't it fun to go back and look through old creations like sketchbooks? What a great face. And all your other drawings are also very good Gene. Have a great weekend. hugs-Erika
