That Face

IMG_2275

Every year I do a pencil-only celebrity portrait lesson with my Studio in Art students, and each year I recognize less and less of the celebrities.  Oh, the drawings get better every year, I think.  I just cannot keep up with pop-culture, lol.

Here are the celebrity drawings from the past couple years!  Can you guess who they are?

Immortalize Me

The above picture is the current state of my classroom blackboard.  We’re working on a portrait lesson in Studio in Art and these are some of the drawings I created as samples.  They all began as class demonstrations.

The above is a self-portrait in the style of Gustav Klimt.  The portrait lesson has since transitioned from self-portrait in colored pencil to celebrity portrait in pencil.

I can’t find the photograph I used for this 19″ x 22″ colored pencil on Canton paper illustration of Colin Firth or as I like to call him, perfection-in-a-man.  Created this one in 2004.  I can’t believe it’s eleven years old.

Here’s a picture of the actor winning a SAG award.  I don’t think any of my sample actors are nominated for a SAG this year.  Too bad, because that would have made a way better blog post.

I’ll be watching tomorrow night anyhow.  The fashionista in me prefers award season over sporting events (I haven’t watched a Super Bowl in I don’t know how long), although you know I will be watching the kitty half-time show of the Animal Planet puppy bowl.  That’s just perfection-in-cuteness.
