Not content to make a mockery of Bouguereau's refined figurative art, I decided to turn my infernal gaze on Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel decorations. Some friends and I regularly do "hobby evenings": we sit around a table and get drunk, and everyone works on a hobby, whether it be scrapbooking, drawing or just drinking and talking nonsense. This rough copy after one of Michelangelo's figures was the result of one such evening:



Now that I have given up trying to copy anything correctly, or achieving any illusion of realism, I am having far more fun with the whole thing. Alas, it does cut a gruesome swathe through the works of the great masters of old...

Love The Drawings

Just stumbled on your livejournal site here... You are so hard on yourself. You've got such a great talent that is expressed in these drawings and with your own style infused into them. I'm truly impressed.
