Drawing: MT

I sketched a lot with markers and fine ink pens, like Rotring Rapidographs, in high school. Chris Barbaria and I loved going to Pearl Paint in Massepequa or wherever fine art materials were sold, to stock up on them.  Korea is a great place, as is Japan, for art supplies, and in Korea, there are “Moon Bang Goos”, or art and stationary stores in almost every neighborhood.

I do not know for sure why I drew this. I have never been fond of drawing athletes. I guess at the time, I wanted to see if I could draw Tyson’s musculature. I was very much enamored with the human form when I began to develop.

These days I am trying to recapture my skills by attending Mike Stewart’s life drawing studio sessions in Myong Dong. You can find it on Facebook.

This sketch enlarges to quite a large size, so enjoy.
