Once again you did some great sketchin'. I like the standing blond chick. I'm somehow drawn to that texture on the background. Very nice. Ooh, and the old guy with the purplish skin. Cool.

Denis said...

Holy sh*t!!! That blonde girl standing...she's the "bees knees", as the young folks would say. Amazing sketches.

kan said...

Love these! Bike girl and hotpants girl, quite cute. Now you need a story to go with these people.

Alison K said...

greatt stuff, i like all of them!

Kyra said...

Awesome!! These are great! And you did these on a busy weekend? Wow! Ha ha. I'm lucky if I write my name on a busy weekend. Do you do these from your mind or people watching or photos??? Just curious because the bodies and movement of these are just wonderful.

Drazen said...

thanks Kareem, I dig your work too!
oh Paige you flatterer,
thanks John, your site is wonderful also!
thanks alison
thanks kyra. yep it was a busy weekend allright, two weddings and 3 family functions and we had to get a hotel room downtown, I drew all the folks slightly hung over early sunday morning while everyone was still sleeping, sitting outside the Royal York Hotel [pictured] and sketched them as they walked by except for the 3 coloured girls which were from memory. The only one that is loosely based on a photo is the girl with the yellow jacket. Actress Melissa Mell.

I to am drawn
To that standing blonde
And man with the purple and jeans
The buildings nice too
Such are girls sketched in blue
Your sketches are clearly 'da beans'
