Books, faces and a blue sun

New books, because I really never stay away from books, and I'm not getting tired of drawing them either. Each cover is a little challenge in itself, and when I read the book, I often find myself wondering how I'm ever going to manage to draw that on paper...


On the left, a thriller from Norway by Jo Nesbo, great author, great story and characters. It's the second one of this author that I read and I wasn't disapointed.
On the right is the second book in the SF "Gaïa" trilogy by John Varley. I adored these books when I was younger, it's such a fun universe.
Some faces. On the upper right it's my daughter, from a photo taken two years ago. She had just dismounted from her horse after the class, she was still very concentrated and focussed, I love that photo (and my drawing, not bad!)


And a little easy picture, just because I wanted to see those colors and a blue sun.
Love the quote, loving hearing Francesco Clemente talking, he's very precise, very interesting.

I love the pink face. And the sun of course...those are my colors. Excellent work IMO.

The books are beautifully drawn. You definitely captured the look of concentration in your daughter's face. I love how you reversed the colors in the sun picture!

Love the books, have to look in to the Jo Nesbo book... I like reading books from Scandinavia and Europe, working on a Swedish book right now by Karin Fossum. The drawing/painting of the books is really good. The faces are great too.

I'm really liking your quote pictures! Do you keep these face sketches in a book somewhere? If not, I'd cut out the one of your daughter and save it somewhere like in a journal or something.

I like the way you have arranged the books on the page - another super spread!

J'aime bien vos croquis de visages. J’espère que vous allez un jour créer une bande dessinée!
